Sony is expanding its popular FCB block camera series with the introduction of eight new E Version block cameras. FCB-EX490E & FCB-EX490E/P cameras combine superb picture quality with high zoom capabilities ranging from 18x to 28x. The FCB E cameras are equipped with IP-ready digital output and enhanced white balance functions compared to prior FCB models.


True Progressive Scan: Ideally suited for military and IP-ready monitoring applications, the FCBEX490E/ 490EP cameras adopt a Progressive Scan mode to provide smooth and clear images when viewing details in a moving image (i.e., license plate of moving vehicles, a person running). All the processing is done by the PS from the CCD readout, signal to processing to video output.

Digital Output (ITU-R BT656): By using the digital interface, the quality of the camera's video signal does not deteriorate. This can lead to cost savings due to the direct connection to codecs/systems without the need for any additional components.

Temperature Readout: The value of the internal temperature of the FCB E Version cameras can be read out via the VISCA™ protocol. When checking the internal temperature of equipment (i.e., speed dome unit), it is possible to use this data to turn a fan or heater on/off inside the equipment as needed.

Color Enhancement: Ideally suited for low vision applications, new color enhancement options can make reading text and pictures less challenging. Available options include monochrome, binary, inverted and enhanced color modes.
