Film carriers

Phase One’s Film Carriers are designed to work with the Phase One Film Capture Stage, and maintain film flatness with a minimal amount of stress and easy mounting/dismounting. Made from milled high-grade aluminum and using an optically-optimized glass base, they maintain parallelism and flatness.

The Film Carriers work with specially-designed clamps that carefully stretch and flatten the film strips.

Supported film formats:

  • 35mm strips
  • 120mm strips
  • 9 x 12 cm
  • 13 x 18 cm
  • 18 x 24 cm

iXG Camera System

The Phase One iXG Camera System comes with a Schneider Kreuznach 120mm Macro RS lens. The lens is equipped with the Reliance Shutter – rated at 1 million actuations, and allows for reliable and consistent capture of the finest detail with minimum vibration.

The iXG Camera System is equipped with PPI-Assist, which accurately measures the distance to the object and records PPI, field-of-view and magnification, making it easy to position the iXG on any copy stand for a given scanning application. In combination with the Phase One AutoColumn copy stands and Capture One CH, the iXG Camera System delivers automated camera positioning for a specified PPI.

Capture One CH software

Capture One CH is a professional rapid capture solution dedicated to the Cultural Heritage community. Built on the renowned Capture One software, the Cultural Heritage edition offers a highly specialized feature set that delivers a significantly faster reprographic workflow during both capture and post-production.

The Slipstream mode – a simplified user interface front-end – allows for capturing to be handled by less-skilled operators, and speeds up the workflow, especially when working on large collections and large volumes of documents.
