The i-CS series of intelligent lenses are engineered to optimize IP image quality by exchanging information from the lens, to the camera. By communicating lens specifications such as model type, manufacturer, geometrical distortion, focal length, and F-stop, manual configuration time is drastically reduced. i-CS compatible cameras can call up lens information on demand delivering application-specific functions for the selected video surveillance Installation. By allowing remote zoom, EIS and BDC adjustment, set-up time is further streamlined. The i-CS series is the result of a joint development between Computar Optics and Axis Communications® and has become the new industry standard in intelligent optics.
To communicate with the lens, network cameras with support for i-CS lenses use an open protocol co-developed by Axis Communications® and Computar®. Thanks to the information from the lens and the use of the protocol, the camera can optimize its image quality at all times. Using data from the lens about geometrical distortion, it performs barrel distortion correction (BDC). The lens also contains information that enables the camera to stabilize the image automatically using electronic image stabilization (EIS).
