Mini IP dome camera features HD varifocal lens

June 29, 2012
IQinVision says mini varifocal lens with a large objective lens element significantly improves edge resolution.

IQinVision (San Juan Capistrano, CA), a supplier of HD megapixel IP cameras, has released its Alliance-mini H.264 varifocal (3.6-6mm) dome series of miniature form factor cameras. The new cameras incorporate a mini varifocal lens with a large objective lens element which the company says significantly improves edge resolution while enabling larger field-of-view (FOV) and user flexibility.

The ability to easily change camera position, FOV, and area of interest without switching lenses is a powerful new feature for the mini dome camera form factor, contends IQinVision. The new technology eliminates the need for integrators, installers, and end-users to purchase multiple backup lens options, claims the company.

The Alliance-mini also supports streaming audio, allowing 2-way communication between the camera and remote/ monitoring locations and the latest DTS capability.

The Alliance-mini (IQD3xSV-B7) with varifocal lens will begin shipping in August. The new series of tiny cameras, which come standard with both beige and black trim rings for aesthetics and convenience, are designed for discreet indoor ceiling, surface, and wall mount installations in education, retail, gaming, and healthcare applications. Additional options include a pendant mount accessory kit, wide and telephoto lenses. For more information, visit
