New VIDEO Survey Data Release in the XMM-LSS Field

Published: 18 Feb 2015

VISTA Deep Extragalactic Observations (VIDEO) is a deep near-infrared Public Survey which targets ~12 square degrees over the ELAIS-S1, the XMM-Newton Large Scale Structure (XMM LSS) and Extended Chandra Deep Field South (ECDFS) extragalactic fields. In this release (VIDEO-XMM DR3) a total of 560 individual single-OB tile images and the associated single-band source lists in the XMM LSS field are available, which have been reprocessed using version 1.3 of the VISTA reduction pipeline.

The release data also include ZYJHKs deep stacks and catalogues in the VIDEO-XMM3 tile, along with YJHKs for XMM2. In the XMM1 tile the released data cover the Z- and Y-band. The Ks-band selected catalogue contains 368277 sources to Ks 23.5 (AB mag, 5σ) over ~3 square degrees (two tiles). The release images can be queried and downloaded from the ESO Science Archive Facility while the band-merged catalogue data are accessible from the catalogue facility query interface. The VIDEO-XMM Data Release 3 is accompanied by a comprehensive description.
