iXU-R 1000 & iXU 1000 Aerial Cameras
The Phase One iXU Cameras are the world's smallest and lightest integrated Medium Format Aerial Digital Camera System.
With a choice of 100 MP and 50 MP CMOS-based sensors and 80MP, 60MP and 60MP Achromatic CCD-based sensors. They deliver large format advantages in a lightweight cost effective package ideally suited for demanding applications where weight is a consideration.
iXU 1000 Aerial Camera.
Phase One's iXU aerial camera answers the needs of users looking for dependable, small, light-weight, medium format aerial cameras at a reasonable price. A solution is available for standalone use, building a compact array for oblique/nadir photography or for medium format photography from a UAV or light aircraft.
iXU-R 1000 Aerial Camera.
The iXU-R variant offers dedicated high performance 40/50/70MM Rodenstock lenses with central shutters - while being compact enough to be easily integrated into a small gimbal or pod space or part of an oblique/nadir array.
iXA & iXA-R Aerial Cameras
The Phase One iXA and R1000 variant are built for Aerial Photogrammetry, in 80 & 60MP models. Suited to single or multiple camera configurations. Rugged reliability, mirror free system with a compact footprint and a host of features to allow any possible integration
Taylor made for Aerial Photography.
Developed with leading experts and engineers in the field, the iXA cameras are built to meet the exacting needs of aerial photogrammetry and streamline the entire capture and processing workflow. The iXA aerial camera is designed to easily incorporate into existing or new systems, making it the perfect solution for integrators or end users looking for a rugged, high-quality industrial-grade aerial camera system. The medium format solution offers exceptional image quality and features that rival large format cameras at a fraction of the price.
Built as an integrated system, offers high dynamic range and detailed image quality that only high resolution, medium format systems can produce. The iXA, combined with either Schneider-Kreuznach fast sync lenses with internal electronically controlled leaf shutters or Phase One digital lenses, guarantees the image quality expected from a dedicated aerial photography camera.
- FMC option to compensate for image blurring
- Ultimate image sharpness
- Dynamic Range 12.5 f-stops
- Excellent colour and detail
- Lenses easily changed in the field
The Phase One iXA aerial camera system is easily integrated into existing systems, both onboard the aircraft and in post production. Simply plug it into the aircraf power bus or any other 12-30 V D source for a reliable source of power
- Bi- Directional communication with the flight management system and an on-board computer
- Phase One SDK on the host computer enables setting up the camera, camera status, indication of the remote capture and storage of the images.
- Camera system available with RGB or NIR sensor modules
- Lenses from 28MM to 240mm
- Focal Plane shutter speeds up to 1/4000 sec and Leaf shutter up to 1/1600 Sec
- Multiple software solutions

iXA-R Aerial Camera.
The iXA-R variant offers dedicated high performance 40/50/70MM Rodenstock lenses with central shutters - while being compact enough to be easily integrated into a small gimbal or pod space or part of an oblique/nadir array.
Phase One Aerial Imaging Software
This is where Phase One show their real commitment to a long term partnership with you and in turn their real value as an investment - not only producing the most comprehensive and innovative hardware but backing it up with software and custom integration solutions that enable you to get the maximum from your data acquisition.
Phase One SDK
The Phase One SDK provides a set of tools, which enables you to build custom applications for image capturing and processing with Phase One iXU or iXA files.
With the Phase One SDK, you have a high degree of control of what parameters to apply while capturing or processing images from a Phase One digital back. For instance, you can specify the capture frequency, if you need your images to be shot at exact time intervals, just as you can process a given set of files with specific parameters set (e.g. exposure + 1, white balance at 5500 Kelvin).
What is included
The Phase One SDK includes interface components for your custom applications to work with the Phase One cameras in a production set up. It also includes components for you to automate image processing with your settings through the Capture One Processing Engine, without a need for loading or navigating the standard user interface of Capture One.
In addition to this, the Phase One SDK includes reference documentation and sample applications for guidance and inspiration. Included with the Phase One SDK is also free access to SDK updates and free access to online support (up to five support cases per year are included).
The Capture One Processing Engine (COPE) is a command line tool used to execute post-processing on Phase One image files. It is used as an alternative to the Capture One Pro image processor for users looking for a more flexible, industrial type processing tool. COPE is used to set up specific parameters which are then automatically implemented in the image processing. The same parameters can be executed on multiple images.
Many of the functions featured in Capture One are also available via COPE. For example COPE can be used to set up output file formats, Kelvin, clarity, shadow recovery, saturation and much more.
Available as an annual subscription for :
Windows 7®, Windows 8®, Windows 10® 64-bit versions
Linux (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS)
Mac OS X 10.10 or later

Phase One iX Capture
iX Capture is a professional Capture and RAW conversion application that was created exclusively for shooting with Phase One aerial camera systems.
Used together with Phase One aerial cameras, this professional capture and RAW converter software enables full control over one or multiple cameras, enabling an operator to easily monitor and control every aspect of aerial digital data acquisition. Designed for use with a touchscreen or mouse, iX Capture makes inflight camera changes as easy as tapping a button. It contains all of the essential tools for high-end performance in one package to enable you to capture, monitor and process images in a fast, flexible and efficient workflow.iX Capture also generates 3 and 4 Band CIR and NDVI TIFF files from files captured by two synchronized and co-installed Phase One RGB and NIR cameras.
