CCTV Optical Master to Provide Best Video Solutions
There are several types of imaging sensors with different image sizes for CCTV cameras, the aspect ratio of CCTV camera is normally 4:3 (H:V). The size of camera’s imaging sensor affects the angle of view, with the smaller sensors creating narrower angles of view when used on the same lens. The format of the lens, however is not related to the angle of view, it merely needs to project an image which will cover the sensor, i.e., the same format of the camera or large. This also means that 1/3” cameras can use the entire range of lenses from 1/3” to 1”, for example, a 1/3” 12mm lens gives the same angle of view as a 2/3” 12mm lens does. The latter combination also provides increased resolution and picture quality as only the centre of the lens is being used, where the optics can be ground more accurately.
