  • True Progressive Scan
    The FCB-EX1020 is ideally suited for IP monitoring applications, adopting a Progressive Scan mode to provide smooth and clear images without interface artifact effects when viewing details in a moving image (i.e., license plates of moving vehicles, a person running). All the processing is done by the PS from the CCD readout, signal to processing to video output.
  • StableZoom Mode
    The FCB-EX1020 adopts a new method of Image Stabilization by using the digital zoom. When the optical zoom reaches a certain ratio, the Image Stabilization function starts to work by gradually combining with the digital zoom. The area is enlarged by the digital zoom and absorbs shaky movements.
  • Digital Output (ITU-R BT656)
    By using the digital interface, the quality of the FCB-EX1020'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.
