The Sony FCBEX12E is a 12x block camera with superb picture quality and features you've come to expect from the FCB camera line-up, such as digital output, color enhancement and sodium vapor lamp mode.
Digital Output (ITU-R BT656): By using the digital interface, the quality of the camera’s video signal is maintained with minimal deterioration. This can lead to cost savings due to the direct connection to codecs/systems without the need for any additional components.
Temperature Readout: The value of the internal temperature of the FCBEX12E camera can be read out via the VISCA™ protocol. When checking the internal temperature of equipment (i.e., speed dome unit), it is possible to use this data to turn a fan or heater on/off inside the equipment as needed.
Color Enhancement: Ideally suited for low vision applications, new color enhancement options can make reading text and pictures less challenging. Available options include monochrome, binary, inverted and enhanced color modes.
White Balance: Outdoor Auto Mode: The FCB-EX12E camera is equipped with a new Outdoor Auto Mode feature. When shooting at dawn or dusk, images could appear bluish. The new E version cameras automatically adjust the white balance to reduce the dark tones at dawn or dusk.
White Balance: Sodium Vapor Lamp Mode: When cameras are shooting under a sodium vapor lamp (typically a street lamp or tunnel lamp), the image could appear to have a yellowish tint. The new FCB-EX12E camera is equipped with a new Sodium Vapor Lamp Mode that automatically compensates for the sodium vapor lamp degree of Kelvin to restore objects to their original color.
