Leica Geosystems Announces Leica Viva – A New Generation Measurement System

(Norcross, Ga., 22 September 2009) Leica Viva is a new generation measurement system that combines the latest state-of-the-art technologies into an unrivalled portfolio of total stations, GNSS receivers, system controllers and onboard software. Encompassing innovative, feature-rich functionality with a new, modern and ergonomic design, Leica Viva is easier and more intuitive to use than any of its predecessors, yet it does not compromise on speed and precision.

With the launch of Leica Viva, Leica Geosystems reaffirms its long and unsurpassed commitment to pioneering solutions and innovations to measure the world. Leica Viva offers a wide range of measurement solutions – starting from reliable products to worldwide support and active customer care programs to deliver maximum performance and productivity.

Leica Viva GNSS – it does not get more flexible
Leica GS10 and GS15 can be used for all tasks and set-ups for GNSS surveying and construction, may it be all-on-the-pole or backpack rover, mounted on a car, quad or boat,  RTK field base station and long term monitoring sensor.

From completely integrated to totally modular solutions, Viva GNSS provides a system that masters all tasks.  Leica Viva also provides a complete range of GNSS and TPS solutions. With the unique SmartStation and the versatile SmartPole fewer set ups are required, fewer control points are needed and flexibility and productivity is maximized.  

Leica Viva TPS – it does not get any faster
Leica Viva TPS combines one of the world’s best total station sensors: angles, distances, drives and the patented automated prism search, creating the fastest total station in its class. Leica Viva TPS is equipped with Leica Geosystems’ state-of-the-art PinPoint EDM. Users benefit from the most reliable and accurate EDM delivering the optimal balance of range, beam visibility, laser dot size and measurement time.
Leica Viva System Controllers and Software – it does not get any simpler
The new Leica SmartWorx Viva software provides unparalleled easy and intuitive operation for experienced professionals as well as newcomers. Running on the new rugged Leica CS10 and CS15 systems controllers, the Leica SmartWorx Viva enables users to control measurements devices with a single controller from a single job file. Furthermore, Leica SmartWorx and system controllers have the power to connect to the office, GNSS systems or total stations seamlessly enabling users to easily transfer files using the Field to Office connection.

Leica Viva system controllers allow an easy equipment setup with the unique “Snap&Go” connection system to start work immediately. Long-range, secure and fast wireless connectivity to total stations or GNSS are now supported by the new Leica intenna technology. Leica intenna introduces a world’s first by fully integrating the total station communication antenna into the controller housing.

The Leica Viva system controllers integrate a 2 Mpixel camera for convenient field documentation and support a wide range of data storage and transfer capabilities such as wireless LAN, USB, Bluetooth wireless technology and CF/SD-cards.
