Tamron and NEC Avio Infrared Technologies announces Far-Infrared High-Sensitivity Security Camera and High-Performance Lens Series

tamron_lens_mount.jpgTamron and NEC Avio Infrared Technologies announced their joint development of a far-infrared (far-IR) high-sensitivity camera and a series of six high-performance interchangeable lenses for use in security applications. With this new far-IR camera, Tamron has achieved significantly higher sensitivity, bundled with a variety of image processing capabilities. At the same time, Tamron offer six types of interchangeable lenses that come equipped with VC (Vibration Compensation) optical image stabilization for far-IR cameras – the world’s first – and the industry’s premium zoom optical system optimized for the far-infrared range. And with the groundbreaking adoption of an interchangeable lens system, the camera and lenses may be flexibly used in a variety of combinations, depending on the respective monitoring situation.

A combination of four fixed focal length lenses and two zoom lenses is offered, to allow flexibility for different monitoring situations. The system can be reconfigured by changing the lens to fit the respective purpose. This improves convenience of installation, speed of delivery, and inventory control.
