Vexcel Imaging Announces Sale of UltraCamXp to Strong Engineering Print E-mail
Written by Vexcel Imaging   
Thursday, 08 April 2010

Graz, Austria — April 7, 2010 — Vexcel Imaging GmbH, a Microsoft® company, completed the sale of an UltraCamXp camera system to Strong Engineering Consulting Co., Ltd., in Taiwan. The deal was brokered by Vexcel Imaging reseller ImageMaps Pte. Ltd., based in Singapore with affiliated offices around Southeast Asia.

“With the purchase of the UltraCamXp system we will be able to provide our customers cost-effective large-area coverage with high radiometric and geometric quality,” said Cheng-Piao Lia, President of Strong Engineering. "We will use the UltraCamXp to provide better service to private companies, corporate organizations and civil industries in the areas of surveying, design and other business operations.”

The UltraCamXp was released in 2008 with an enlarged footprint and enhanced storage capabilities compared to its predecessors, the UltraCamD and UltraCamX. The UltraCamXp reduces the number of flight lines, saving time and lowering cost, while retaining high radiometric performance.

“We are pleased to be providing an UltraCamXp camera system to Strong Engineering, one of the major aerial mapping service providers in Taiwan,” said Alexander Wiechert, Business Director of Microsoft and Managing Director for Vexcel Imaging GmbH. “After a careful selection process, Strong felt the UltraCamXp offers exceptional value in terms of price and performance.”

About the UltraCamXp
The UltraCamXp large-format digital aerial camera provides an enlarged footprint of 196 megapixels and a pixel size of 6 micrometers. The resolution ratio of 1:3 between pan and color bands allows for the production of high-resolution pan-sharpened products. The UltraCamXp makes use of the same data flow concept introduced with the UltraCamX and provides even more in-flight storage capacity. The low-cost, exchangeable on-board storage devices hold up to 6,600 images each—approximately 4.2 TB of data. The vast storage capability allows for highly efficient data collection as a result of uninterrupted image collection and minimal ground time.
