FinishLynx: digital photofinish and timing (FAT to IAAF specifications)

There are many reasons, but some of the most important are these:

RELIABILITY In the world of thoroughbred racing there is no room for error. Lynx products are designed and built in the US to ensure the highest standards of system design, quality and reliability. They are easy to use and unfailingly accurate.

SECURITY For years Lynx technology has been setting the standard for tamperproof security, and the EtherLynx 2000 range of products continues that tradition. The photofinish images produced by Lynx products are encoded, and time-indexed - they cannot be opened or manipulated in any computer graphics program. With the integrated backup function, images and data can be written automatically to an archive disk for later examination.

SPEED Results in seconds. Instantaneous transfer of images and data to Judges, to Television, to the Internet, and to scoreboards. Reducing the time taken to produce official results means more time is available for the placement of bets.

LOWER COSTS Employing our state-of-the-art technology can reduce your operating expenses by eliminating film and chemical costs. Simpler technology means a more efficient use of personnel.
