iX Controller MK 4

Ultimate in Speed and Control


Capturing aerial data today demands fast computers optimized to work with aerial cameras and capture software. With all of the components working together, you are able to capture, monitor and store images, and adjust camera settings as conditions change.

The iX Controller MK4 is designed to enable rapid data transfer, and has the ability to control up to six Phase One aerial cameras independently. Built as a workhorse, the system boasts a small footprint and easily integrates into any aircraft.


Acting as a central hub to Phase One Aerial Systems, it controls the cameras, the gyro-stabilizing mount, the GNSS/IMU system, and runs iX Capture and iX Flight software. The iX Controller MK 4 includes an I/O port to enable accurate activation of multiple cameras by iX Flight, pre-installed on the iX Controller.
