Because the Multiple Split Interface plug-in allows users to capture multiple finish lines in a single event, it is a popular software plug-in for Track & Field relays, Thoroughbred and Greyhound Racing, and Velodrome Cycling. With the MSI plug-in, the FinishLynx software can be configured with one EtherLynx camera located at the finish line, or multiple cameras located at specific split intervals throughout the race.
The plug-in allows EtherLynx photo-finish cameras to be configured to automatically capture a split location at a certain time, or capturing can be done manually by the operator. The MSI plug-in allows users to toggle between cameras from within the FinishLynx software. For instance, cameras could be setup to record each quarter mile split of a thoroughbred race. The splits will then be organized in the FinishLynx software and included in the .LIF file. The splits recorded with the plug-in can also be printed along with the rest of the fully automatic timing results.
