The Flash Start is a self-contained optical starting signal for swimming competitions which allows to see the exact starting moment of the race.

The Flash Start is the best complement to the acoustic system.
Both systems are driven by the StartTime V.

This technology is helpful for the athlete, who often wears earplugs which decrease hearing capacities and for the spectator who can see the start of the race from anywhere in the venue.
