Phase One Industrial has announced their new100 MegaPixel CMOS-based medium format metric cameras available for aerial mapping and other demanding applications. The development of the Phase One iXU 1000 and the iXU-R 1000 camera systems marks a shift toward higher value for the aerial data acquisition market. These systems, which are available in either RGB or near infrared (NIR) variants, are distinguished from all other existing medium format aerial camera systems by their combination of higher image resolution, wider ISO range and faster capture speeds, as fast as 0.85 second per frame, offering large format advantages at medium format prices. At 100 megapixels, the cameras deliver 11,608 pixels cross-track coverage, which is 12 percent greater than previously available medium format aerial camera systems. Flying with an iXU-R 1000 or iXU 1000 enables users more coverage during a flight while maintaining the same ground sample distance.
