SONY FCBEX20D 10x Color Block Camera (PAL VERSION ONLY)



High Sensitivity and Superb Picture Quality for Surveillance Monitoring, Police Vehicle and Inspection Applications. Sony continues to add choice and flexibility to its FCB Series with the introduction of the FCB-EX20D camera. The FCB-EX20D incorporates a newly designed 1/3 type Super HAD CCD II sensor that provides increased sensitivity compared to cameras featuring the successful 1/4 Super HAD CCD. The camera can operate under a minimum illumination of 0.25 lux. When combining Sony's advanced Digital Signal Processing technology with this new CCD, the FCB-EX20D achieves a horizontal resolution of 530 TV lines, providing extremely clear and detailed images. Featuring a Day/Night function, this camera offers optimized sensitivity in changing light conditions, which is a typical challenge for 24/7/365 surveillance monitoring applications. In addition, the camera provides an extremely wide horizontal angle of view (5.4� to 50�) with a 120x zooming capability for exceptionally close inspection to capture detailed information. Moreover, to further improve camera performance, the FCB-EX20D offers a number of sophisticated functions such as advanced spherical privacy zone masking with a mosaic effect, video motion detection, multi-line on-screen display and slow AE function. When utilized in a fixed-type, mini speed-dome, or as a Pan/Tilt.Zoom (P/T/Z) camera, the FCB-EX20D is the definitive choice for security and monitoring systems. This camera is so versatile that it can be used in video conferencing and low vision systems, to police vehicles and underground inspection (oil and gas pipelines).
