Graz, Austria — June 22, 2011 — NIPIStroyTEK, a civil engineering firm based in Moscow, has contracted with Microsoft to purchase an UltraCamLp digital aerial photogrammetric camera system. The transaction was handled by Pergam, a diversified trading company with offices in Russia, Switzerland and the United States.

“After a thorough review of our options, NIPIStroyTEK decided that our first digital camera should be the UltraCamLp,” said S. Korsey, General Director, NIPIStroyTEK. “The positive experiences our employees have had working with UltraCam cameras in the past, along with Microsoft’s excellent reputation for customer support, heavily influenced our selection."

NIPIStroyTEK will be using the UltraCamLp system for infrastructure projects in the oil, gas and transport industries.

About the UltraCamLp
The UltraCamLp combines innovative hardware, electronics and software that result in a light and compact camera system.

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 ìm.
