SeeSense' new Meuser HD Lens for Toshiba HD Camera

Based in Slovakia and the UK, the Company is able to develop strong and lasting relationships with its customers

SeeSense are pleased to announce the addition of the new Meuser Optik 3.5mm (69° FOV) 1/3” prism compatible HD lens to their armoury of compatible lenses for the Toshiba IK-HD1 camera system. The new improved optics offer vastly superior resolution with lower image distortion performance to any 3-CCD 1/3” C-mount prism camera including those from Toshiba, Iconix, Panasonic, Ikegami and Hitachi.

Meuser Optik recently announced that a new 2.8mm 81° FOV version of the above lens will soon also be available.

The availability of suitable lenses for 1/3” HD cameras has been an issue for some time now. As a consequence SeeSense Directors Nigel Paine and Paul Rogers have been on a quest to find and assess new lenses especially for Toshiba cameras. Nigel Paine has spent the last decade as a lens sales specialist working for Pentax and distributing other makes of lens. Paul Rogers has dealt with technical lens requirements for over 25 years.

"We have also developed an upgrade to the Toshiba IK-HR1S camera (SeeSense part number IK-HR1P) to allow the use of CS mega pixel lenses" said Paul Rogers. “SeeSense can now offer a range of quality MP lens solutions for this camera with FOV capabilities up to 180° and with apertures down to F1.0. This greatly enhances the camera’s capability in low light as well as expanding suitability for special POV, sports, in-car and other speciality uses.”


SeeSense has huge experience in the pursuit, evaluation and specification of new lenses for C and CS mount cameras and would be pleased to discuss customers’ individual special requirements.
