Tamron introduces near IR corrected/ 5 mega-pixel vari-focal lens 1/1.8” 4-13mm F/1.5 IR C-mount

Tamron Co., Ltd., total optics manufacturer and a leader in the security industry, announced the development of a near IR corrected / 5 mega-pixel Vari-Focal lens. Development concept Cameras for the security market are boasting rapidly increasing pixel counts, and security device manufacturers are making greater and greater efforts to satisfy the need. Noting the market trend to cameras with higher pixel counts, Tamron works to develop a variety of products meeting this trend and bring them to market at an early stage. The major camera markets nowadays are clearly shifting from box cameras to mini-dome cameras, but Tamron sees a steady need for C and CS mount cameras as well. Compared to mini-dome cameras, box cameras with C and CS mount lenses have a better reputation for allowing fine adjustments and providing excellent images. Box cameras have proven their high performance and reliability in monitoring public and critical facilities. Seeing the marketability of box cameras that support large sensors for high pixel counts, Tamron has now developed a standard Vari-Focal lens supporting near-IR lighting and 5 mega-pixel. In a market that is trending toward higher pixel counts, we believe that in fact box cameras with high-performance C and CS mount lenses will need to be installed in more and more places. In particular, we believe these high resolution lenses will be chosen as the best solution for traffic monitoring, where high performance is a must for identification. As a developer and manufacturer of high-performance lenses, Tamron will continue to pursue performance and quality through our development. Key features 1. High-spec lens built for high pixel counts Market-leading 5 mega-pixel support in a C mount lens. Supports large 1/1.8" sensors. Lens designed with a fast aperture of F/1.5. 2. Optical design for both day and night monitoring Megapixel support even in near-IR lighting. Reduced loss of picture quality during night time monitoring. 3. Super-wide-angle Vari-Focal lens Coverage from wide angle (115.8°) to medium telephoto (35.9°) (aspect ratio 16:9) 4. Compact, high-performance lens New aperture mechanism is developed to keep the compactness and high performance.

Tamron DF204 near IR corrected/3 MP lens for surveillance integrated vari-focal lens
Tamron DF204 near IR corrected/3 MP lens for surveillance integrated vari-focal lens

Tamron Co., Ltd., comprehensive optics manufacturer and a leader company in the security industry, announced the release of an integrated type Near-IR Corrected / 3 Mega-Pixel Vari-Focal Lens.Beginning with the DF010 in 2009, Tamron has garnered extraordinary installed base of near infrared surveillance lenses, accompanied by a body of highly satisfied users. Over time, however, increasing camera resolution capabilities and larger camera sensors created a need for a similar lens with substantially higher performance characteristics-in both visible and IR spectrums. In response, Tamron engineers undertook a full redesign project, retaining the heart of the successful DF010 while creating a new, high resolution optic for daylight and night surveillance applications. The result produced a lens with significantly higher resolving capability in visible and IR spectrums with a substantially larger image circle to accommodate a wider variety of larger camera sensors. Key features Superb 24-Hour Optical Performance 3-mega-pixel resolution in both visible and near-infrared spectrums provides night and day surveillance clarity. Focal Length Range from 3 to 9mm Provides a board horizontal angle of view of 93°at the 3mm setting. Ideal for System Upgrades Sized comparably to competitive lenses with similar specifications, often enabling upgrade interchangeability without camera changes Class-leading compactness Improved optical performance without sacrificing form factor compactness Compatible with typical three-inch dome installations

Tamron launches 5 megapixel NIR (Near-IR) Vari-Focal lens
Tamron launches 5 megapixel NIR (Near-IR) Vari-Focal lens

Demand for IP/network cameras is growing at an unprecedented speed in the security market. Today’s requirement for high image-quality mandated resolution higher than 5-megapixel / Full HD 1080P. Double Vari-Focal lens system To address the market need, Tamron has released a ‘Double Vari-Focal’ lens system, a complementary lens-pair solution that powerfully supports major security applications: an M13VG288IR (f=2.8-8mm) lens and an M13VG850IR (f=8-50mm) lens to seamlessly cover the entire focal length range from the wide-angle f=2.8mm to the telephoto-end f=50mm. Because of the universal angular field of view coverage being addressed between the two, the solution has received exceptionally high recognition in the market. Demand for large-size 1/1.8” and 1/2” imagers has also grown prominently for surveillance installations in highly populated urban areas, where distinguished resolving power becomes critically important to make the most of the imaging capabilities of 5-megapixel sensors. A new lens, M118VG1250IR, now released by Tamron, specifically addresses the needs in the surveillance market. Tamron, as an integrated optics manufacturer, progressively pursues development of such high-quality and innovative products. M118VG1250IR highlights and features 1. NIR lens covering focal lengths most universally utilised in telephoto applications: The new lens delivers high-quality images throughout the most commonly used focal length range of 12-50mm. Expanding the spectrum coverage to NIR region, the lens enhances and assures high-precision and high-efficiency day-and-night surveillance. 2. High-quality NIR imaging: An ideal lens for day-and-night mega-pixel surveillance with chromatic aberrations well compensated for delivers improved performance in the NIR bandwidth and well-tuned image quality from corner to corner. Tamron’s proprietary optical design with an optimal choice of glass materials backed by high-precision process technology brings an ideal balance in performance to cost 3. Discrete optical design considering low-light conditions: The image circle diameter is expanded to permit compatibility with 1/1.8” imagers widely adopted in the security/surveillance market. A fast aperture of F/1.4 is achieved by a new optical design, while the minimum aperture stops down to F/360. The new lens is also compatible with 1/2” and 1/3” imagers. 4. Substantial reduction of flare and ghosting: The performance of the new lens has gone through extensive validation processes using state-of-the-art simulation, weighed heavily on specific conditions of a wide variety of surveillance scenes. Disturbing flare and ghosting are attenuated to the minimum and Tamron’s proprietary multi-coating technology is employed to thoroughly reducing flare and ghosting. 5. Pursuit of high utility and high reliability: In line with Tamron’s product development philosophy for high reliability, proprietary knowledge and manufacturing know-hows have been extensively utilised for the design and manufacturing of the new lens, M118VG1250IR, similar with other Tamron products. Large rotation angle for faster and easier focusing Slip-mount mechanism for faster and easier camera / lens installation and assembly Highly-reliable auto iris mechanism
