Abstract

A catadioptric wide-angle lens having a rectilinear projection scheme has been developed with a view to possible applications in the security–surveillance area. The lens has been designed for a miniature camera with a video graphics array-grade 1∕3 in. color CCD sensor. The field of view of the lens is over 151°, and still distortion is under 1%. Furthermore, the modulation transfer function is better than 0.3 at 70 line pairs∕mm over the whole active area of the image sensor.
