Is Bayer Pattern better than Pan Sharpening?

Yes! With Bayer Pattern Image Sensors, fewer cameras are needed per ground area which means that a multi-camera system can cover more area and/or provide higher resolution than a Pan Sharpening solution.

PAS Advantages

Don’t compromise on image quality when asset safety or regulations prevent you from closing the distance on your data acquisition.

Image quality

High resolution RGB

Bayer pattern sensors representing exactly what we see

Blur control technology (BCT)

Eliminates motion blur and ensures geometrical accuracy.

From replanning on air to immediate reviewing of high-resolution images right after landing.


Earliest data quality control

Ensure data quality from the start with ​iX Suite. From replanning on air to immediate reviewing of high-resolution images right after landing.

Global Support

Tailored to every need.

Fly longer with a more compact system using the same amount of fuel.


Short data handling time

Save precious time and storage importing with RAW image format IIQ (Intelligent Image Quality).

Compact and light-weight​

Fly longer with a more compact system using the same amount of fuel.

Upgrading to Phase One next-generation systems has improved our quality, timeliness, and made both our collection and processing more efficient and streamlined. The investment has been well worth the return
