Lens Technology With Heat Haze Elimination

Pentax Imaging : 04 October, 2010  (New Product)
The Pentax Atmospheric Interference Reduction based lenses eliminate heat haze and offer improved video stabilisation
Pentax Imaging Company has announced the evolution of its Pentax Atmospheric Interference Reduction (PAIR) technology. Building on the first-generation PAIR 01, winner of the 2010 ISC West "Best in Video Device" award, the new PAIR 02 adds an industry-first Heat Haze Reduction function.

In high atmospheric heat conditions, pavement, sand and other solid surfaces absorb intense energy from the sun. As heat radiates away from the surface, a layer of hot air forms, bending light and results in visible ripples and waves. This effect, sometimes referred to as turbulence or scintillation, can severely inhibit long-range video surveillance efforts. The new Heat Haze Reduction function built directly into the Pentax PAIR 02 lens series reduces the shimmering effect of anisoplanatism (heat haze) in surveillance images for greater clarity and increased effectiveness in detecting and observing far-away objects. PAIR 02 technology maintains PAIR 01's abilities to reduce noise interference from fog, rain, smoke, and other atmospheric aberrations, even in low-light conditions.

Long-distance outdoor surveillance also is often adversely affected by vibration and wind. PAIR 02's built-in Image Stabilization technology delivers higher quality images than existing methods.

"The new PAIR 02 Heat Haze Reduction and Image Stabilization functions introduce technological advancements to the security industry. This new technology will be a good solution for such high-end applications as border patrol or critical military use," said Tom Harada, Managing Director of Security Systems and Machine Vision Optics, Pentax Imaging Company.
