The FCB-EX1020 block camera combines superb picture quality with high 36x optical zoom capabilities, up to 432x with combined digital zoom. Ideally suited for IP-ready monitoring applications,True Progressive Scan with a digital output (ITU-R BT656), low or high contrast lighting situations and wide dynamic range. Enclosed in an extruded aluminum (6063 alloy) housing with black powder coating.
The Sony FCB-EX1020 uses a 1/4-type EXview HAD CCD and advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) to reproduce clear, detailed images at a horizontal resolution of 530 TV lines and with 380,000 pixels. The camera features a wide horizontal viewing angle of 57.8 degrees and 1.7 degrees telephoto capability.
With ultra high sensitivity (0.1 lux) and a unique feature, Wide Dynamic Range, the camera captures incredibly well illuminated video even when extremely bright light and dark spots occupy the same picture. The newly developed Slow AE function allows the camera to adapt to abrupt changes in light while capturing images with fine detail. The Slow AE and Wide Dynamic Range features of the EX1020 make it the ideal camera for surveillance applications with harsh and abruptly changing light conditions.
Advanced Backlight Compensation technology dramatically improves the camera's dynamic range (128x) to produce high-contrast images. Other convenient new features include Spherical Privacy Zone Masking with Mosaic Effect, Video Motion Detection, and Multi-Line On-Screen Display, as well as the popular features inherited from previous FCB-EX Series Cameras, such as e-Flip, Picture Freeze, and Auto ICR. The Auto ICR feature reacts to ambient light by cutting infrared light to prevent overexposure and increasing sensitivity to infrared frequencies when more light is needed for a clear picture. The camera communicates using RS-232 interface (Sony's VISCA protocol). With consideration given to environmental protection, this module is designed to operate with low power consumption and also incorporates lead-free and halogen-free circuit boards. Applications Include: Broadcast Entertainment, ENG, Military, Dashboard Mount in Police Vehicles, Cockpit Recorders, Facility Surveillance & Monitoring, Private Investigation & Covert Operations, Building Inspections, & Shipment Container Inspections
The XBlock Indoor FCB-EX1020 Camera adopts a progressive scan mode to provide smooth and clear images when viewing details in a moving image (i.e., license plate of moving vehicles, a person running). All the processing is done by the PS from the CCD readout. signal to processing to video output. Auto wide dynamic range with 36x optical zoom.
The FCB-EX1020 block camera combines superb picture quality with high zoom capabilities, up to 432x with optical zoom. Ideally suited for IP-ready monitoring applications, the FCB-EX1020 incorporates True Progressive Scan with a digital output (ITU-R BT656). In low or high contrast lighting situations, the FCB-EX1020 operates an Auto Wide-D mode that automatically turns on/off the Wide-D according to the luminance of the image. In addition, color enhancement features are ideally suited for low vision applications.
The Auto ICR function incorporated in the FCB-EX1020 offers optimal sensitivity in both day-and-night shooting applications. At a set level of darkness, the IR-cut filter is automatically disabled (ICR ON) and the near-infrared sensitivity is increased. At a set level of brightness, the filter is automatically enabled (ICR OFF). The IR-cut filter automatically engages depending on the ambient light, allowing the cameras 24/7 operation in a variety of lighting conditions.
When the FCB-EX1020 camera is shooting under a sodium vapor lamp (typically a street lamp or tunnel lamp), images could appear to have a yellowish tint. The new FCB E Version cameras are equipped with a Sodium Vapor Lamp Mode that automatically compensates for the sodium vapor lamp degree of Kelvin to restore objects to their original color. The FCB-EX1020 camera is equipped with an Outdoor Auto Mode feature that automatically adjusts the bluish tone back to a true white balance to reduce the dark tones at dawn or dusk.
This XBlock camera system sends video, receives commands, and is powered all through a single cable connection to an optional controller. The camera communicates using RS-232 interface (VISCA protocol).
With consideration given to environmental protection, this module is designed to operate with low power consumption and also incorporates lead-free and halogen-free circuit boards.
The XBlock indoor camera with integrated Sony FCB-EX1020 is available in 4 indoor configurations, with your choice of NTSC or PAL and with or without on-camera control pad.
