Fujinon Introduces CCTV Long-Range ZoomsWith day/night imaging for homeland security and surveillance (August 12, 2004)
Fujinon (ASIS Booth #6127) has chosen this year's ASIS International convention to introduce its latest CCTV long-range zoom lenses. Both the C22x23 one-inch format zoom and D60x12.5 ½-inch super telephoto lenses feature Iris Override and Day/Night capability within an extended focal length lens. The lenses are designed to meet the long-range surveillance needs of homeland security and other government and security video applications looking for automatic and high-quality imaging in day and night lighting conditions. Crucial environments such as homeland security, airport and seaport security, and air traffic control surveillance, are some of the areas most applicable for the two new lenses.
"We continue to design lenses with the needs of the security professional in mind," said Adam Colombo, CCTV Sales Manager, Fujinon. "These features are key in these two, new CCTV lenses. Day/night imaging, iris override, and flexibility are all part of these lenses as a result of extensive customer feedback. We take that real-world input into consideration when we design our new lenses. Our new CCTV zooms provide the best optical solutions available today for homeland security applications."
The C22x23 reaches a focal length of 500mm with a range from 23mm to 506mm. At the same physical size as its predecessor, the C22x17 (with a 17-374mm zoom range), the new C22x23 provides more telephoto capability within the same size lens. Because of its extended focal range, this lens does not require a 2x extender, ensuring sharper, faster, and brighter images.
The ½-inch format D60x12.5 super telephoto lens has a focal length range of 12.5mm to 1,500mm. At only 354mm long, the lens is approximately half the size of competitive products. Its cost-efficient price point and compact size make it a powerful choice for corporate, security, and government video professionals looking for a long-range surveillance lens.
An Iris Override function, included on both lenses, allows operators to manually control iris adjustments. Both lenses will be available for delivery during ASIS.
