Day/Night Surveillance Lens
Optical equipment manufacturer Fujinon has introduced the D32x10R4D-V41, a compact surveillance zoom lens designed for day and night operations on CCTV systems. Features such as megapixel-compatible high resolution, long telephoto zoom capability, preset functionality, and remote iris control support 24-hour security and surveillance. The D32x10R4D-V41's specialized optics use an extremely low longitudinal chromatic aberration lens, which minimizes color fringing and provides crisp color images in daylight (as well as black and white images in low light and darkness) without the need to refocus. When light intensity needs to be adjusted, operators can remotely fine-tune the lens iris to allow in more or less light. Contact manufacturer for pricing. www.fujinon.com.
