The new FHD block camera

Better Visualization with Sony's FCBs

The latest Sony's 1/2.8-type Full HD color image sensor *1 for surveillance offers high sensitivity with a minimum illumination of 0.009lx*2.

Equipped with full HD resolution and 30x optical zoom, the camera is also effective in fields such as infrastructure inspections, unmanned drones, and smart livestock and aquaculture. The dimensions are equivalent to those of the conventional FCB-EV7520 series, for easy replacement.

Starvis next generation

Infrastructure inspection

Infrastructure facility inspections involve a large human workload. ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles) equipped with cameras are increasingly being used for underwater facilities. In addition to full HD high resolution image quality and 30x optical zoom, the low-light performance enables shooting in dark areas, contributing to improved safety and efficiency in underwater inspection work. This applies to above ground drone inspection applications as well.

Rescue operations / Security drones

The first 72 hours are considered critical in rescue operations. The IR function using near-infrared light and the low minimum subject illumination of 0.009 lx *2 enable search activities after sunset and at night by improving visibility under night vision, thereby increasing the survival rate expected in rescue operations in mountainous areas and at sea.

Smart livestock and aquaculture
Smart livestock and aquaculture

AI-based image identification technology is increasingly being used in the aquaculture and livestock farming sectors. The outstanding low-light performance and WDR function are advantageous for capturing the details required for machine processing, thus demonstrating reduction in manpower requirements. Our visibility-focused imaging and camera control technologies cultivated in surveillance cameras contribute to reducing labor shortages and costs in primary industries.

High Sensitivity

Improved low-light visibility with the latest image sensor

Through introduction of new cell structures and circuit technology, the series efficiently uses light, achieving twice the sensitivity compared to conventional image sensors. Consequently, clear images can be captured even during the night and in dark environments.

New cell structure

Compared to conventional cell structures, diffraction gratings have been applied, and the photodiode layer is deeper. By securing a longer light path length, the absorption efficiency of the long wavelength is increased, and achieves high sensitivity.

Super Image Stabilizer 

Smooth and stable images even in extreme conditions

Enables capturing of highly precise video with reduced blurring even in harsh environments with strong vibrations by greatly improving blur suppression and image stabilizer.

Equipped with the “Super” and “Super+ (plus)” * modes.

*Available during full HD or HD output

Technical Details: Super Image Stabilizer Structure and Modes

Super Image Stabilizer

The blur correction function has been improved on this product. The device has secured a wide correction area.

Because of this, the camera is capable of suppressing strong vibration that could not be corrected on conventional models as well as blurs in the rotational directions that previously could not be corrected with general optical blur correction*.

*Lens shift method

A gyro sensor, which achieves electronic blur correction by changing the readout position of image sensors based on acceleration data, is equipped on this product.

Super Image Stabilizer

This is expected to achieve stable corrections regardless of the conditions the shooting targets are in.

*There may be cases that sufficient blur corrections cannot be obtained depending on vibration frequencies and the degree of vibrations.

Two modes are available for selection based on the degree of vibration. Available for use in a wide range of scenes such as on board ship, traffic surveillance, bridges, drones, and automobiles.

Suppresses strong vibrations with a wider correction area compared to conventional electronic vibration suppressors.

Suppresses strong blurring that cannot be suppressed with “Super” by securing a wider correction area compared to “Super.”




Easy replacement of conventional 1/2.8-type models

The same sized housing as for the conventional FCB-EV7520 series makes it easy to replace*. Also, LVDS output pin assignments are compatible.

* The lens position is shifted down by approx. 2 mm.


Advanced AF performance

Advanced AF Performance

Spot Focus · Spot AE · Spot AWB

Enables functioning of AF, AE, and AWB only in specified areas within the screen. Enables independent specification of any rectangle in a 6x 8 region of interest on screen.

For example, if the subject location is specified with Spot AE, enables capturing of images with Exposure effects reduced even if brightness changes occur outside the specified frame.

Ajustable ROIs

Color Image Acquisition During ICR ON

On conventional models, only black and white images are achieved when the IR cut filter is removed. The new ICR ON COLOR function enables the camera to capture shots with color even when the IR cut filter is removed. ICR ON is effective for color visibility in dark environments.

*The precision of color reproduction varies depending on the light source and brightness.

Wide Dynamic Range (Wide-D)

Wide-D mode is a function for dividing an image into several blocks for correcting blocked-up shadows and blown-out highlights in accordance with the intensity difference. It enables image acquisition in which portions ranging from dark to light can be recognized, even when capturing a subject with a wide intensity range created by backlit or includes extremely light regions of interest.
