Have you ever wondered not just what it takes to slam automobiles against obstacles, but how to record it all accurately? A new video from the institute goes behind the scenes into its video production capabilities from the initial crash to final video editing.<br /><br />The center's crash hall is designed specifically for high quality photography. It has a custom lighting array to produce diffused light that prevents hard shadows. The IIHS also uses a networked array of slow-motion digital cameras, which it refers to as digital imagers, that all begin filming at the same time when a test begins.<br /><br />It's a fascinating and scientific process that aims to set a world standard in crash testing. <a href="/2014/05/02/iihs-crash-testing-behind-the-scenes-video/#continued">Scroll down</a> to watch some high-quality shots of cars getting smashed and gain a better understanding of what the IIHS does.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/05/02/iihs-crash-testing-behind-the-scenes-video/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>IIHS shows you how they capture crash-test footage</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/05/02/iihs-crash-testing-behind-the-scenes-video/">IIHS shows you how they capture crash-test footage</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Fri, 02 May 2014 20:00:00 EST.
