The Phase One iXM 100MP and iXM 50MP are the first ever medium format cameras from Phase One with back-side illuminated sensors.

This advanced technology improves sensor sensitivity and dynamic range, so you can operate in less than ideal conditions.

  • 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 four 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

Applications

Due to the light weight and small design, the Phase One iXM offers versatility and is perfect for missions including:

  • Mapping
  • Oil & Gas pipelines monitoring
  • Critical infrastructure inspection
  • Power line monitoring
  • Coastal surveillance
  • Wind turbine blade inspection
  • Disaster site monitoring and mapping
  • Arctic research
  • Iceberg monitoring
  • Forestry, vegetation identification, agriculture crop monitoring
  • Hydrometric mapping
  • Asset management
  • 3D modeling
  • Entertainment and game market

Multiple camera configuration

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.

Choice of RSM Lenses

Four new Phase One RSM lenses, with focal lengths ranging from 35mm to 150mm, were specifically created to fit the pixel and sensor size while maintaining sharpness across the image. The lenses have high optical resolution, offering new uses for both inspection and mapping applications. The integrated leaf shutter offers high capture speed for an array of flight conditions.

Superior Storage and Connectivity

The iXM supports super-fast storage capabilities. It also provides full control – over a wireless link – for defining:

  • ISO
  • Shutter speed
  • Aperture
  • Advanced functionalities
  • Focus distance
