We present a method for fluid velocimetry based on a single-exposure analysis of the streak speckle pattern generated by sub-micron tracking particles illuminated with coherent light. It works in real-time and provides two dimensional velocity mappings in the direction orthogonal to the optical axis, independently of particle concentration and size. It is immune of any spurious light acting as undesired heterodyne signal and can probe velocities much higher (∼three orders of magnitude) than methods based on double-exposure analysis. The method has been tested by using rigid diffusers of different heterodyne strength and applied to map the flow of a confined fluid.
