SONY FCB-EV9500L 2.1 MP (1080p/60) LVDS 30x Enhanced Optical Zoom Block Camera (FCBEV9500L)



Sony's new 9500 series color block cameras achieve higher visibility by adopting a new lens, image sensor, and ISP by Japanese manufacturer. Experience 30x enhanced optical zoom in a compact size even with the larger 1/1.8 sensor. The FCB-9500 cameras can be used in a wide variety of scenes, including environments with harsh conditions. In particular, the new super image stabilizer has greatly improved blur suppression compared to conventional models. The FCB-9500 series consists of three models: 4M model (HDMI output) and two full HD models (MIPI or LVDS output) in the same sized housing.

High Resolution
Using a 4MP sensor and sharp lens, Sony's new block camera achieves superior resolution and accurate image representation even in low-light conditions with evolved AF/AE/AWB functions.

High Sensitivity
The 9500 series efficiently uses light, achieving twice the sensitivity compared to conventional image sensors. As a result, clear images and be captured even during the night and in dark environments.

Super Image Stabilizer
Enables capturing of highly precise video with reduced blurring even in harsh environments with strong vibrations by significantly improving blur suppression image stabilization.
Equipped with “Super” and “Super+ (plus)”* modes
Available during full HD or HD output

30x Optical Zoom
The new lens provides high resolution and low aberration, making it capable of capturing high resolution images that span from the screen center to the outer edges. There is no image deterioration using the enhanced 30x optical zoom. Experience full sharpness and dramatically reduced chromatic aberration in full HD output and achieve images with sharp resolution during 4MP output.

Starvis Sensor
Equipped with an approximately 417 million-effective-pixel, 1/1.8-type high sensistive, AR-coasted (anti-reflective coating) CMOS sensor. The FCB-9500 series is especially effective for security uses. Futhermore, the AR-coating minimizes the ghost phenomenon and enables capturing of images without missing crucial information even during the night and in dark environments.

Super Image Stabilizer
This new Sony FCB camera series suppresses blus from strong vibrations and rotational vibrations better than conventional models. There are two modes available to select from based on the scale of vibrations:
Super - Suppresses strong vibrations with a wider correction area compared to conventional electronic vibration suppressors.
Super+ - By employing a wider correction area than "Super", "Super+" suppresses intense vibrations that cannot be suppressed with "Super."
Relevant Applications: Shipboard, attachments for ITS surveillance, on bridges, drones, vehicles, etc.

Flare Reduction with New Iris
Diamond flares and ghosts that occur on lenses disrupt focusing and deteriorate image quality. The new lens in the 9500 series cameras adopts seven blades compared to the conventional two blades, reducing flares and ghosts and thus greatly improving image quality.

Color Image Acquisition with ICR ON
The new ICR ON COLOR function enables the camera to capture shots with color even when the IR cut filter is removed. It is effective for color visibility in dark environments.
*the precision of color reproduction varies depending on the light source and brightness.

Spot Focus / Spot AE / Spot AWB
Enables functioning of AF, AE and AWB only in specified areas within the screen. Enables independent specification of any rectangle of the entire screen divided in 6 x 8.

Wide Dynamic Range (Wide-D)
Wide-D mode is a function for dividing an image into several blocks for correcting blocked-up shadows and blown-out highlights in accordance with the intensity difference. It enables image acquisition in which portions ranging from dark to light can be recognized, even when capturing a subject with a large intensity difference that is backlit or includes extremely light regions of interest.

Visibility Enhancer
Depending on the imaging scene, the Visibility Enhancer function makes the darker part of an image brigher and automatically corrects brightness and contrast to show bright parts clearly.

Low Focal Plane Distortion Image
The image warp that occurs when capturing rapidly moving subjects is reduced.

Defog (Low/Mid/High)
When the surrounding area of the subject is foggy and low contrast, the defog mode will reduce the effects of the fog and make the subject appear clearer. You can select from four levels: Off, Low, Mid and High. The Defog effect level can be automatically adjusted according to the fog density.

Noise Reduction (NR)
The NR function removes noise (both random and non-random) to provide clearer image.

Privacy Zone Masking
Privacy Zone Masking protects private objects and areas such as house windows, entrances and exits which are within the camera's view but not subject to surveillance. Privacy zone masking can be masked on the monitor to protect privacy.
* Mask can be displayed on 8 places per screen.
* Individual on/off zone masking settings.

"StableZoom" is a function for performing correction using the Image Stabilizer function in accordance with the zoom ratio and smoothly zooming up to approximately 36x using a combination of optical and digital zoom.

Picture Effect
E-Flip, Freeze, Black & White (Monochrome Image)

Auto ICR
Auto ICR Mode automatically switches the settings needed for attaching or removing the IR Cut Filter. With a set level of darkness, the IR Cut Filter is automatically disabled (ICR On) and the infrared sensitivity is increased. With a set level of brightness, the IR Cut Filter is automatically enabled (ICR Off). On systems equipped with an IR light, the internal data of the camera is used to make the proper decision to avoid malfunctions. Auto ICR Mode operates with AE Full Auto setting. When the Auto ICR Mode is set, the color is added.

Spot Light Avoidance
With Spot Light Avoidance, you can avoid AF / One-Push AF focus issues when shooting a subject with a bright spotlight source such as an outdoor light. For example, when shooting at night with a surveillance camera, the camera may not focus due to a bright lihgt. Using Spot Light Avoidance function reduces the impact of bright lights and you will be able to fouces with AF/One Push AF.
