Theia introduces a C-mount version of our ultrawide angle varifocal lens
Theia Technologies announced the expansion of its line of ultra wide angle, no distortion, megapixel lenses with its new C mount ML183M model. Like Theia's other wide angle lenses, this lens leverages Theia's patented, award winning Linear Optical Technology® platform to offer optical distortion correction. This lens is similar to the popular SL183 varifocal lens.
According to Jeff Gohman, President of Theia Technologies, “The lens is unique because it is the only one to offer this combination of capabilities. It combines C mount with five megapixel resolution, an un-distorted wide angle image, Day/Night IR correction, and EasyZoom™ capability, - all in a compact varifocal lens”.
Theia is pleased to announce the winner of our 2013 Video Contest: "Making the Faces of Freedom" submitted by Carl Bracken of Control Installations of Iowa, documenting the time lapse construction of the a new exhibit at the rebuilt National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library in Cedar Rapids, IA following the devastating flood of 2008. The scene was captured through an SL183M lens fitted to an Arecont AV2110DN camera recorded on 3xLogic Vigil server.
The time lapse video begins when the main exhibit hall was just starting the new $2.5m build out which took the special construction crew approximately 3 1/2 months to complete the exhibit. Carl has won a GoPro Hero 3 Camera for his submission.
