Market Launch Announcement
Tamron announces the launch of
A New 3-Mega-Pixel NIR (Near-IR) Vari-Focal Lens
1/2.7” 2.8-12mm F/1.4 (Model: M13VG2812IR)
February 23, 2016, Saitama, Japan – Tamron Co., Ltd., (President & CEO Morio Ono), an integrated optics manufacturer and leader in the security/surveillance equipment industry, announces the release of a 1/2.7” 2.8-12mm F/1.4 3-mega-pixel NIR Vari-Focal Lens (Model: M13VG2812IR).

Demand for IP/network cameras is growing at an unprecedented speed in the security market. Today’s requirement for high image-quality mandated resolution higher than 3-mega-pixel / Full HD 1080P.
To address the market need, Tamron has released a ‘Double Vari-Focal’ lens system, a complementary lens-pair solution that powerfully supports major security applications: an M13VG288IR (f=2.8-8mm) lens and an M13VG850IR (f=8-50mm) lens to seamlessly cover the entire focal length range from the wide-angle f=2.8mm to the telephoto-end f=50mm. Because of the universal angular field of view coverage being addressed between the two, the solution has received exceptionally high recognition in the market.
Demand for large-size 1/1.8” and 1/2” imagers has also grown prominently for surveillance installations in highly populated urban areas, where distinguished resolving power becomes critically important to make the most of the imaging capabilities of 5-mega-pixel sensors. A new lens, M13VG2812IR, now released by Tamron, specifically addresses the needs in the surveillance market.
Tamron, as an integrated optics manufacturer, progressively pursues the development of such high-quality and innovative products.
- High Resolution for High-Quality Images
- Compatibility with 1/2.7" Imagers
- Performance Extended over to the NIR Spectrum
The new lens supports image resolution higher than 3-mega-pixel / Full HD 1080P, which is a major trend in the security market.
The image circle is expanded to permit compatibility with 1/2.7" imagers.
Chromatic aberration has been corrected throughout the visible and the NIR spectrum; the new lens is ideal for integration with day-and-night cameras and enhances the performance of 24-hour mega-pixel surveillance.
