Aero-Photo (1961) Inc. Purchases Microsoft UltraCamLp Digital Camera Print E-mail
Written by Vexcel Imaging GmbH   
Tuesday, 19 April 2011

Graz, Austria — April 19, 2011 — Aero-Photo (1961) Inc. has contracted with Vexcel Imaging GmbH, a Microsoft® company, to purchase an UltraCamLp digital aerial photogrammetric camera system.

”Aero-Photo is committed to 100% digital aerial data collection and production based on the UltraCam product line,” stated Mr. Paul Grenier, President of Aero-Photo (1961) Inc. “The UltraCamLp gives us the versatility we need at a competitive price for smaller projects, so it is an excellent addition to our resources.”

Aero-Photo (1961) Inc. will use the new UltraCamLp primarily for projects involving road and power lines corridors, forestry, and other smaller projects in the local area, while keeping its two UltraCamXp cameras available for larger international projects.

“Microsoft is pleased to assist Aero-Photo (1961) in its efforts to expand its digital aerial acquisition services,” said Alexander Wiechert, Microsoft Business Director for Vexcel Imaging GmbH. “We take this purchase of another UltraCam as a very high compliment about the quality of our products and service.”

About the UltraCamLp
The UltraCamLp combines innovative hardware, electronics and software that result in a light and compact camera system. The camera collects five spectral bands per exposure: red, green, blue and near-infrared data, in addition to the higher-resolution panchromatic data. The UltraCamLp features an image footprint collection capacity of 92 megapixels (11,704 x 7,920 pixels pan), made possible through advanced electronics and a CCD array of just 6 µm. The system is ideal for smaller large-scale and photogrammetric projects, high-resolution (true) orthophoto production, DSM (digital surface model) production, aerotriangulation, corridor mapping, classification, and lidar integration.

About Vexcel Imaging, GmbH
Acquired by Microsoft Corporation in May 2006, Vexcel Imaging GmbH brings more than two decades of photogrammetry expertise to Microsoft’s Bing Maps business unit and is at the heart of the burgeoning Microsoft photogrammetry business. The company’s offerings include the UltraCam series of photogrammetric digital aerial cameras and related software tools such as the UltraMap workflow software.
