iXG Camera System features

Flexibility for mixed collections

The iXG delivers incredible flexibility for the digitization of mixed collections.

In combination with a Phase One or Digital Transitions copy stand, the iXG quickly switches between large and small originals. Add a Phase One or Digital Transitions film capture stage, and transparent film and glass plates are readily digitized.

Color accuracy & detail

The iXG Camera System uses 100-megapixel CMOS sensors to ensure the highest resolution with the lowest possible noise. In combination with the ICC profiles of Capture One CH, these sensors produce the most accurate colors and render 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.

The industrial build ensures a long usable life for superior return on investment.

Integration with Capture One Cultural Heritage

The full integration of hardware with the specialized Capture One CH software yields efficient, professional workflow and precision results. The Capture One CH integration offers 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.

Accurate distance measuring & PPI assist

The iXG has the unique capability to accurately position the lens and record its properties.

In combination with Capture One’s camera focus tool, the intuitive PPI Assist feature and precise contrast-based auto focus provide an extremely simple, yet powerful, way to achieve the highest level of image quality and compliance with reproduction standards such as Metamorfoze and FADGI. Any common copy stand can be used. The margin of error is within 2ppi – well within the specifications from both FADGI and Metamorfoze.

Schneider Kreuznach optics

The iXG Camera System 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. In combination with the digital lens profiles of Capture One CH, the lenses offer the highest quality in terms of resolution, flatness, sharpness, lack of distortion and color uniformity required for the most demanding reproduction applications.

21mm and 42mm extension tubes are available for close up capturing of film and small objects at higher resolution, and are designed and built with the same accuracy and quality as the camera body and lens.
