A recording system using image color encoding is proposed. Such a system is similar to the well-known streak camera, but has an improved resolution. Object 702 to be recorded is illuminated by white light from source 700. Light emanating from the object points passes color encoder 720 incorporating two crossed blazed gratings 705 and 706, the groove directions of which are orthogonal to each other and which produce spectra of a very high order and a very low order, respectively.
