August 26, 2022, Saitama, Japan - Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Shiro Ajisaka; Headquarters: Saitama City, Japan), a leading manufacturer of optics for diverse applications, announces the market-launch of a new camera module, Model MP3010M-EV, an upgraded model of the successful industry-leading compact and lightweight camera modules, Models MP1010 and MP1110.
In January 2016, Tamron released, a series of industry-leading multi-purpose zoom-camera modules, Models MP1010 and MP1110. The compact and lightweight advantages of these modules were highly valued for use in a variety of industry applications including inspection and surveillance by drones.
Due to the rapid progress in system’s automation and digitalization, the needs and requirements of camera modules are diversifying to support new imaging applications such as quality-assurance, safety-inspection, and task-assistance. Tamron’s released modules have received outstanding recognition for the imaging quality achieved by the performance of an optical zoom lens and in the compact dimension of the modules that fit in a limited installation space.
To meet the growing needs of the market, Tamron now releases an enhanced module, Model MP3010M-EV, that accommodates a wider array of applications with improvement in imaging sensitivity, addition of a Day/Night feature, and attachment of an HDMI interface, in addition to the advantages of the compact and lightweight body and the 10x optical zoom lens featured in the previous models.
Adoption of an improved image sensor and addition of a Day/Night feature expands the ability to monitor many more types of video scenes. An HDMI video interface is included in addition to the analog SD output and the LVDS interfaces, which are compatible with the previous models, to enhance the system utility and performance of the module.
Tamron, as the leading manufacturer of optics for diverse applications, pursues distinguished fidelity in all image details and excellent user utility, and expands the boundaries of imaging applications and markets.
