* Tamron 12x, 1/4″ CCD Mini Dome Camera- DCV12/ DCV12PR4

In April, Tamron released their new mini-dome Industrial Camera, the DCV12NR. This new product comes on the heels of the rapidly growing, highly diversified dome camera market. Using its sophisticated resources acquired through long-term development and sales of high resolution/high quality lenses, Tamron now offers a high-definition mini-dome camera with a variety of unique features.

Costly speed dome cameras specially designed to cover a telephoto range for a broad variety of applications is a current trend in the dome camera market. Targeting a smaller portion of all possible applications Tamron offers a high magnification mini-dome camera, covering 3.8 wide to 45.6mm telephoto while providing high resolution images for security use. In addition, Tamron’s “Install AF Mode” dramatically improves the process of time-consuming focus adjustment of its mini-dome camera at the installation site, thereby providing great efficiency for installers.

Main Features:

(1) Extended 12X telephoto zoom lens in a mini-dome camera

  • Features a 12X optical zoom lens boasting a focal length of 3.8-45.6mm, the best zoom ratio in its class of mini-dome cameras
  • Covers speed dome class range of 3.8mm wide to 45.6mm telephoto (5-60mm when converted for use with a 1/3-inch camera), making it widely acceptable for outdoor applications as well as indoor uses

(2) High resolution design

    Manual triple-axis setting allows panning ±360° , tilting ±80° (±70° at wide-end) and rotation ±360° to ensure optimum viewing
  • Grip on the rotation mechanism provides ease-of-use and smooth operation. Markings on the rotation portion indicate the correct screen position, allowing you to precisely set horizontal alignment on the monitor
  • Motorized lens enables simple and speedy lens adjustments at the touch of a button. In addition, since the camera features an Install AF Mode designed to perform continuous auto-focusing for 30 seconds after dome cover installation, defocusing after installation can be prevented
  • A monitor output terminal is provided near the operating button so the camera can be connected to a monitor via the conversion cable. This simplifies the confirmation of the appropriate angle of view at the installation site
  • Screw holes are provided on the wall-mount for gang-box installation
