4-Band Multispectral Solution

Phase One's 4-Band multispectral solution incorporates an innovative batch-processing tool that automates and thus simplifies the four-band aerial image generation process.

Description

Adding a fourth band of near infrared (NIR) image data to three band colour (RGB) image data yields multispectral information that is very useful in vegetation studies -- in applications ranging from crop metrics for optimization, to vegetation health, environmental contamination and city observations for green site monitoring. The solution is composed of two synchronized Phase One metric aerial cameras mounted side by side on a specially designed base plate, a Phase One iX Controller and Phase One iX Capture software. Images are captured in NIR and RGB bands simultaneously, and processed automatically to generate distortion-free images and perform fine co-registration of pixels from NIR to the RGB images – including processing different image sizes – with seven different output options, including multispectral CIR images.
