Theia Technologies launched the SY110 megapixel lens for the security industry. The SY110 is an extension of their line of ultra wide angle, no distortion, mega-pixel lenses, bringing much needed Day/Night capability to the mega-pixel market.
The lens has the ability to capture high resolution images in both day and at night without having to re-focus the camera. The SY110 lens can be used on Day/Night cameras to focus crisply in both visible and Infrared (IR) light.
Theia leveraged their patented Linear Optical Technology platform with all-optical barrel distortion correction to provide a nominal 110 degree horizontal field of view (HFOV) with a 1/3″ sensor and up to 120 degrees HFOV with a 1/2.5″ sensor.
The lens is offered with a CS mount, in both auto and manual iris versions. Theia will begin shipments of the auto-iris February 4th, and the manual version by February 10th, 2009.
