The streak tube is intended for fast running  processes image registration in streak and multiframe modes. It has a portable (manipulated) photocathode provided a limiting low noise-level,a low-voltage shutter as a gird electron closed to the photocathode, a focusing electrode, two pairs of plates deflected the image in mutually traverse directions and produced as through-pass elements of broadband communicational lines with coaxial connectors of 50 Ohm wave resistance, and a blue/green screen applied on a fiber-optic disk. The shutter as well as the deflecting plates is a through-pass element of broadband communicational lines supplied by 50 Ohm coaxial connectors.
