Sony FCB-EX15E 12x Zoom Color Block Camera

Quick Overview

768 pixels x 494p, 1/4-type EXview HAD CCD (PS), 12x zoom. This camera replaces several models including; FCBEX11D, FCBEX12E, and FCBEX20D.


Sony’s FCB series is introducing the FCB-EX15E (FCBEX15E) a 12x block camera with superb picture quality and features you've come to expect from the FCB camera line-up, such as digital output, color enhancement and sodium vapor lamp mode. Ideally suited for IP-ready monitoring applications, the FCB-EX15E/EP (FCBEX15E/EP) cameras adopt a True Progressive Scan mode to provide smooth and clear images without interlace artifact effects when viewing specific features in moving images (i.e., license plate of moving vehicles/stolen vehicles, a person running from a crime).

The FCBEX15E (FCB-EX15E) is ideally suited for low vision applications such as military, security, and biometric applications. New color enhancement allows the camera to quickly adapt to lighting changes for instance, in situations similar to parking garages and underground parking lots. This standard definition camera can be applied to dozens of scenarios where low light is an issue. If you are employing the Sony FCB-E version cameras there is a chance dusk and dawn will affect the image. Fortunately, Sony’s innovative Outdoor Auto Mode Included in the new E version cameras automatically adjust the white balance to reduce the dark tones at dawn or dusk.
