Press release   •   Jun 20, 2019 16:36 CEST

COPENHAGEN, June 20, 2019 – Phase One today launched Capture One CH 12.1, featuring full support for Windows computers. The Windows version of Capture One CH enables more Cultural Heritage programs to benefit from the existing productivity features and efficiency benefits it inherits from the Mac version.

5 years of success – Capture One CH

The updated Capture One CH 12.1 comes with a fully-supported Windows version, that includes features such as:

  • Negative film reproduction tools and styles
  • Advanced auto-cropping with automatic straightening/rotation and alignment
  • Capture resolution ruler
  • Slipstream capture mode for non-trained operators
  • CH workspaces and styles
  • ICC profiles for Cultural Heritage
  • Creative enhancements
  • Camera focus with AutoColumn and PPI-Assist (full implementation in Capture One CH for Windows expected end of 2019)

Since its launch in 2014, Capture One CH has been the cornerstone of CH solutions from Phase One. The core imaging engine of Capture One guarantees the best image quality, while the RAW workflow delivers flexibility and efficiency for post-processing and archiving. The Cultural Heritage feature-set focuses on automation, delivering Auto Crop, Automated Film Scanning and automated positioning for accurate capture at given PPI resolutions. Customization of the software environment through Workspaces and the Slipstream user interface ensures an efficient and user-friendly experience.

The Auto Crop feature saves hours and hours of our time and ultimately produces outputs which are straightened and cropped tighter often much more precisely than I can do by eye” said Andrew Bruce, Photographer at the Postal Museum in London. “Some of our projects run for weeks or months and we need to capture at a consistent sampling frequency despite changing setups, the Capture Resolution Ruler tool helps us to achieve this fast and accurately again and again.”

Achieving a new benchmark with the iXG 150MP

The newest in a portfolio of efficient, high-volume digitization solutions for Cultural Heritage programs, Phase One announces the iXG 150MP Camera System, basedon the Phase One Infinity Platform and with Back Side Illuminated (BSI) sensor technology. The high-volume capabilities of the iXG Camera System are stepped up with a 151-megapixel CMOS sensor - allowing for instant captures of up to the A0@300PPi benchmark.

Since its launch in 2017, the iXG Camera System has established itself as a pillar for efficiency for cultural heritage programs around the world. The accurate iXG focusing mechanism and precise optics have led to automation advancements with regards to distance measuring, focusing and positioning for a capture at a desired resolution on Phase One AutoColumn copy stands.

The new iXG 150MP Camera System adopts the Phase One Infinity Platform technology and BSI sensor, but also comes with Ethernet and USB-C connectivity, as well as improved image quality and performance.

The iXG 150MP Camera System is expected to ship in Q1 2020. Pricing will be determined in Q4 2019. Please contact your local Phase One Cultural Heritage Partner for system configuration options, solutions pricing, and demo arrangements:
