March 28, 2012, ISC West, Las Vegas, NV — Tamron Co., Ltd. (headquarters: Saitama City; President: Morio Ono) has proudly announced the development of a 2 mega-pixel/Full HD compatible, 30x zoom lens for board cameras, with a 1/3" imager size, 4.3-129mm focal length, and an F/1.6 aperture (Model DF019).
Board cameras (PTZ-Dome, Bullet, Dome camera) are gaining popularity over box-type cameras throughout the security market due to their compact size and installation efficiency. One particular application, that of speed dome cameras often used for outdoor surveillance, calls for higher-quality monitoring over a greater distance. There are increasing requirements for compact lenses compatible with existing camera sizes, but offer high-power zoom and deliver high-quality images. To meet these needs, Tamron has developed the Model DF019, a 2 mega-pixel/Full HD compatible, 30x zoom lens. This newly developed model delivers truly reliable optical performance, from wide angles to telescopic ranges, in a compact size that fits in existing speed dome cameras.
