A Revolution in UAV and Drone Cameras
Phase One Industrial developed the iXM series – revolutionary and uniquely designed cameras for UAV-based aerial imagery that redefine the boundaries of technological innovation.
The iXM 100MP and iXM 50MP are high-productivity metric cameras with a range of specially designed RSM lenses. The iXM cameras are ready for easy integration with a wide range of UAV platforms, including Phase One’s DJI Matrice 600 Pro solution. The cameras deliver superior quality aerial imaging and flexible operation to satisfy diverse mapping, surveying, and inspection applications.
The iXM supports super-fast storage capabilities. It also provides full control – over a wireless link – for defining:
- Shutter speed
- Advanced functionalities
- Focus distance
- Upload flight plans
- High resolution, with a pixel count of:
- 11664×8750 for the iXM 100MP
- 8280×6208 for the iXM 50MP
- 3.76µm pixel for the iXM 100MP
- Medium-format sensor with backside-illumination technology
- Fast capture rate of 3 fps for the iXM 100MP
- A choice of five specially developed RSM lenses
- Easy integration with a variety of UAV platforms – with serial communication camera control and HDMI output, including camera status and image data in the overlay
- USB-C and 10G Ethernet for versatility of connectivity to large UAVs and aircraft
- Complete integration with DJI M600 PRO drones, including Phase One’s iOS application for remote camera control
The iXM camera series offers a choice of a 50MP sensor. With a resolution of 8280×6208 and pixel size 5.3µm, the iXM 50MP enables the capture of high-accuracy images and addresses the needs of smaller scale mapping and inspection missions.
