SONY FCB-ER8300 4K Ultra HD 20x Optical Zoom Color Block Camera



Sony has brought out the 4K FCB-ER8300. Designed for security, surveillance and industrial applications, the FCB-ER8300 delivers true 4k resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) at 30 frames per second (fps).

Targeting security and industrial applications the FCBER8300 camera block's small size and specifications also makes it suitable for video conference, inspection and medical uses.

The FCB-ER8300's compact form, auto-focus, and low power consumption allow for integration into Pan, Tilt, and Zoom camera systems. Using Sony sensors and powered by a Sony image processor, the FCBER8300 offers four times the resolution of 1080 FHD video with 73.4 degree horizontal field of view. A 20x zoom (coupled with it's extremely high resolution) allows for recognition and identification from distance.

Other features include ePTZ, Advanced Noise Reduction, Auto ICR, and Visibility Enhancer.
