Vibration Monitoring with Video. GVS presents Revolutionary New Technology

It’s Time to Open Up the World of the Unseenintroducing Vibration Monitoring with Video.

Imagine having a video camera where every pixel becomes a vibration sensor. This is now a reality with a brilliant new technology called Motion Amplification developed by RDI Technologies. Research, Development, Innovation (RDI) Technologies is headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee. RDI was founded by Dr Jeff Hay, the inventor and patent holder of the technology which originated in research funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security at the University of Louisville in Kentucky. The research project, led by Dr Hay, aimed to find a fast, noncontact method for the assessment of critical infrastructure that could assist first responders during emergencies.

The unique benefits of the technology are listed below;

• Measure deflection, displacement, movement and vibration
• Reveal movement not visible to the human eye
• Every pixel in the video becomes a sensor
• See the bigger picture
• Non-contact measurement
• Visualisation of vibration data
• Complementary CM tool
• Revolutionises ODS analysis
• Set up, acquire and visualise in minutes not days
• Applications: Up to your imagination!

Seeing is believing.
