190 MP Resolution

The Phase One iXU-RS1900 is built with dual 90mm lenses for capturing RGB information. It is equipped with highly sensitive CMOS sensors enabling very short exposure time of up to 1/2000 sec. Each sensor provides an image with 8,708 pixel across flight and 11,608 pixel along flight, and the two stitched images form a large frame with 16,470 pixels across the flight line and 11,540 pixels along the flight line, providing a 190MP image.

The higher sensor sensitivity along with the shorter exposure time and advanced Phase One RS shutter technology enable to reach high quality aerial imagery required for mapping applications.
