Phase One iXG Camera System

Cultural institutions have the staggering task of achieving perfection in the preservation of their collections. Phase One delivers to the need for intelligent capture solutions built to process high volume digitization programs with speed and accuracy. Our specialized Industrial Imaging team have developed a configurable solution that provides an ergonomic and efficient workflow, resilient hardware, and Phase One’s patent imaging capabilities. The result is the iXG Camera System: a system designed with up to 100-megapixel quality, durability and ease of use in mind, and a new version of Capture One Cultural Heritage software fitting the iXG into digitization projects where efficiency counts.

The iXG Camera System is designed with ease of use in mind, reliability, flexibility and with phenomenally sharp imaging capabilities up to 100MP to ensure accurate recording of the finest cultural artifacts. In combination with a Phase One or Digital Transitions Copy Stand, this capture solution quickly switches between large and small originals, and with a Phase One or Digital Transitions Film Capture Stage, film and glass plates are readily digitized.

The configuration of the iXG solutions go hand-in-hand with the Capture One Cultural Heritage software. Highlights of the new Cultural Heritage edition include: Automated capture of negative film, auto-crop with pre-pass optimization and auto-alignment for flat art, books and transparencies; plus robust, ready-made ICC profiles for reproduction.

iXG Features

Color Accuracy & Superior Detail

The iXG Camera System uses CMOS sensors in all models to ensure the highest resolution and lowest noise levels. In combination with the ICC profiles of Capture One CH, these sensors produce the most accurate colors and minute details, enabling accurate reproduction for all Cultural Heritage applications. The sensor's 4:3 aspect ratio maximizes the captured area and is suitable for most common object formats.

Industrial Durability

The iXG Camera System is designed to work hard and to last. It offers industrial build quality, made with aerial-grade aluminum and using the most durable mechanical and electronic components available today. The Reliance Shutter's longevity offers a one million actuations guarantee. And with the iXG 100MP in electronic shutter mode, you benefit from an unlimited number of shutter actuations. 

Capture One Cultural Heritage Integration

The full integration of hardware with our customized Capture One Cultural Heritage software yields efficient professional workflow and precision results. There is complete camera control, reliable performance, and expertly crafted RAW conversion algorithms. Tools for auto-cropping and aligning of both documents and books is a huge time saver, as is the automated workflow for capturing negative film. 

Schneider Kreuznach Optics

The iXG Camera utilizes integrated Flat Field Optics with the 72mm and 120mm Schneider Kreuznach lenses. This compatibility addresses the needs of flat copy work, particularly useful for libraries, archives, and universities. The Schneider Kreuznach lens design offers the highest quality in terms of resolution, flatness, sharpness, distortion and color required for the most demanding reproduction applications.

Precision Focus Control

With the iXG Camera System, you get precise, accurate, and smooth motor-driven focusing. Position recording of the lens and camera ensures optimum focus accuracy. Precision focus control with both manual and preset positioning, and contrast-based autofocus that sets distance and resolution parameters accurately and reliably, paves the way for automated set up of camera position and focus for a specific job in terms of document size and capture resolution.

100MP Achromatic Model

The iXG 100MP Achromatic model uses the all new Sony 100MP Achromatic sensor, combining the highest possible resolution and class-leading wide spectrum sensitivity that are so desired for specialized applications such as multi-spectral and NIR (Near Infra-Red) imaging.
