Web Seminar: Do you speak Digital?
 
For aerial acquisition companies that still operate exclusively with film sensors, the digital arena can seem like a different world with its own language. Many film flyers approach discussions about migrating from their film systems to digital systems with concerns over differences in base-to-height ratio, focal lengths and concepts such as scale versus ground sample distance.
 
This 45-minute webinar discusses the aspects of aerial data acquisition that must be considered when replacing more traditional analog approaches with those based on newer digital technologies. The discussion covers data collection as well as post-processing, and focuses on Microsoft UltraCam hardware and software systems. Come armed with your questions for the Q&A that will follow the presentation. Better yet, send your questions to ensure they are addressed during the presentation: ultracam@microsoft.com.

Web Seminar: UltraCam Osprey Prime and UltraMap 3.2
 
At the ASPRS conference in Louisville, Kentucky, Microsoft’s UltraCam business unit introduced an updated version of the UltraCam Osprey, a digital aerial system that combines a high performing photogrammetric nadir camera with oblique image capture capabilities. The new version of the UltraCam Osprey has been redesigned with an 80mm focal length to enhance its nadir collection performance at higher altitudes without reducing resolution and the forward- and backward-looking cameras are redesigned to be single cones instead of two double cones to simplify the hardware and improve reliability.
 
 
In this web seminar we talk about:
 
General camera design
Special features
Sample images
Achieved accuracies shown with a sample project
Integration into the UltraMap workflow

Web Seminar: UltraCam Eagle f210
 
The UltraCam Eagle now features an exchangeable 210mm lens system that allows you to fly high-altitude missions and still capture the same high-resolution, geometrically accurate PAN imagery you’ve come to expect from UltraCam technology. No need to be concerned about the increased atmosphere: the superb signal-to-noise ratio of the UltraCam Eagle f210 allows for an exceptionally high image dynamic that allows for correction of color shifts caused by atmosphere, haze, hotspots, and other artifacts using the UltraMap workflow software. Meanwhile, the small field of view of this new lens minimizes lean for tall buildings while still allowing full utilization of the Eagle 20,010 pixel swath width for ortho image production. Occlusions are minimal even for narrow streets or alleys!
 
Join leaders from Microsoft’s UltraCam product group in this 45-minute presentation to learn how the UltraCam Eagle f210 can maximize the efficiency of your aerial data acquisition projects.

Web Seminar: Exposure Control & High ISO Mode
 
We like to share experience and know-how with you operating the UltraCam with optimized exposure settings for best image quality. This involves the feedback you get from Camera Operating Software (COS) supporting you during optimization process. In addition, we are going to talk about the new High ISO mode (HIM) available with our new cameras and software and how you benefit from it. Completing the session, we will provide general information about why we decided to let operators manually tune exposure settings instead of using auto-exposure technics.
 
Join Microsoft’s UltraCam experts in this 45-minute session to learn how you can optimize image quality flying an UltraCam.
