Two Flateye Cameras

https://korean-electronics.com//inquiry[INQ. NO. 1808E02] Many countries, especially Southeast Asian countries, suffer from monsoon. Moisture from heavy rain also often poses an obstacle to CCTV, because the dome cover of certain cameras gets wet and foggy, which hinders clear monitoring.
To resolve this problem, global security company Hanwha Techwin has released two flateye cameras (QNE-6080RV(W) and QNE-7080RV(W)) that provide clear monitoring even against the humidity of the monsoon season. The main feature of the new models is the absence of the dome-shaped transparent cover surrounding the surveillance camera.
2 Megapixel QNE-6080RV(W) and 4 Megapixel QNE- 7080RV(W) each have a window cover with a flat surface applied to the front of the lens instead of the dome cover. Removal of the cover resolves the problem of narrowing views due to humidity and ensures clear vision even amid heavy downpour during monsoon. It also mitigates the issue of obstructed viewing due to contamination or scratches on the dome cover.
In addition, the application of a 3.1x (3.2~10mm) electric varifocal lens allows viewing angles to be freely adjusted. An application for optimal viewing angles is thus available for each location to allow broader and more precise monitoring. And thanks to the infrared (IR) light function, the cameras are also highly effective even at night to recognize objects up to 30 meters away.
These cameras also support a variety of intelligent video analytic functions of Hanwha Techwin. Defocus detection notifies the user if the camera is out of focus due to external vibration, and the defogging function corrects the image if the screen is blurry due to fog or smog. When subject identification is impossible due to the darkening of the backlight, the wide dynamic range (WDR) function corrects the image to enable bright and clear object identification.
The removal of the dome means quicker installation since attachment-detachment process can now be eliminated. And the efficient adjustment of monitoring direction even in a fixed state means significantly better management and operation of both cameras.
A source at Hanwha Techwin said, “Intelligent technology for CCTV is important but since these cameras were initially installed for security, it is critical that environmental factors do not disturb the original monitoring function. The key is the extent of clear monitoring possible based on strong durability even in extreme climates with extra high humidity,” adding, “Hanwha Techwin will continue raising its technical capacity to make its products durable under extreme conditions.”

Micromini Aspheric Lenses

https://korean-electronics.com//inquiry[INQ. NO. 1806E04] JTway (President & CEO: Ji-hwan Park), a company specializing in lenses, has localized the micromini aspheric lens. JTway recently announced that, with the support of optical design and analysis technology from the Korea Photonics Technology Institute, they had developed a microscopic aspheric lens with a diameter of 1mm and established a mass-production system capable of producing more than 400,000 pieces per month by introducing a special automation robot.
Aspheric lens is a key component for enhancing performance of the optical modules such as cameras, closed circuit (CC) TV, laser, etc. As micro aspheric lenses with a diameter of 1 mm were difficult to manufacture due to the high defect rate, mainly Japanese products were imported and used up till now. The micromini aspheric lenses now developed by JTway are cheaper by 10% or more than the existing Japanese products, and they are supplied as components for network servers, optical communications, and light emitting diodes (LEDs).
The company recently started joint development and production of aspheric lenses for LED with a Japanese enterprise of middle standing and plans to pursue exports to the USA, Japan, China and Taiwan by setting up agencies in those countries..
President & CEO Ji-hwan Park said, “The aspheric lens localized this time has better performance than Japanese products, so it is definitely getting a good response from customers. We plan to achieve turnover of KRW3 billion this year, which is more than twice as much as that of last year, by striving for quality control and delivery management.”
