Tamron releases mini-dome camera with 12x built-in high-magnification zoom lens

Product Profile

Tamron has developed a new mini-dome camera on the heels of the rapidly growing, highly diversified dome camera market.  Using its sophisticated resources acquired through long-term development and sales of high-resolution/high quality lenses, Tamron is now launching a high-definition mini-dome camera with a variety of unique features. 

Costly speed dome cameras specially designed to cover a telephoto range for a broad variety of applications is a current trend in the dome camera market.  Targeting a smaller portion of all possible applications Tamron offers a high magnification mini-dome camera, covering 3.8 wide to 45.6mm telephoto while providing high resolution images for security use.  In addition, Tamron's "Install AF Mode" dramatically improves the process of time-consuming focus adjustment of its mini-dome camera at the installation site, thereby providing great efficiency for installers. 

Main features:

1. Extended 12x telephoto zoom lens in a mini-dome camera

  • Features a 12x optical zoom lens boasting a focal length of 3.8~45.6mm, the best zoom ratio in its class of mini-dome cameras
  • Covers speed dome class range of 3.8mm wide to 45.6mm telephoto (5~60mm when converted for use with a 1/3-inch camera), making it widely acceptable for outdoor applications as well as indoor uses

2. High-resolution design

  • Equipped with a 1/4-inch format 380K CCD for 540 TV lines horizontal resolution
  • Advanced lens performance by virtue of the high resolution design and aspherical lens provides excellent image quality even in image corner

3. Enhanced installation and adjustment efficiency

  • Manual Triple-Axis Adjustment (Pan / Tilt / Rotation).  Manual triple-axis setting allows panning ± 360°, tilting ± 80°(± 70° at wide-end) and rotation ± 360° to ensure optimum viewing.
  • Grip on the rotation mechanism provides ease-of-use and smooth operation.  Markings on the rotation portion indicate the correct screen position, allowing you to precisely set horizontal alignment on the monitor.
  • Motorised lens enables simple and speedy lens adjustments at the touch of a button.  In addition, since the camera features an Install AF Mode designed to perform continuous auto-focusing for 30 seconds after dome cover installation, defocusing after installation can be prevented.
  • A monitor output terminal is provided near the operating button so the camera can be connected to a monitor via the conversion cable.  This simplifies the confirmation of the appropriate angle of view at the installation site.
  • Screw holes are provided on the wall-mount for gang-box installation
  • Rubber strap prevents dome cover from falling
  • Quicker mounting of the cover with three screw holes

4. Ideal for outdoor installations

  • Vandal-resistant and watertight / dustproof (IP66) designs appropriate for outdoor applications such as under eaves
  • Supports day & night function for 24/7 surveillance

5. Other features

  • Optional wall mount available
  • OSD (on screen display) support
  • Backlight compensation
  • Privacy zone masking (up to 8 areas)
  • RS-485 for remote control
  • 24 VAC / 12 VDC power (auto sensing dual voltage input)
  • Internal sync / line-lock (at 24VAC, NTSC 60Hz / at 24VAC)
  • ESC (electronic shutter control, auto / fix)
  • AGC (automatic gain control, OFF / 24dB / 32dB)
  • White Balance (ATW / AWC / Manual)
  • Camera text function (max. 16 characters)
  • Detachable inner cover to hide camera direction
