Sony ISS Products


Sony’s FCB Series of colour block cameras offers excellent picture quality, superb flexibility, and easy operation in a variety of applications ranging from surveillance to traffic monitoring, and in many other visual communication environments. 

Sony’s FCB Series of colour block cameras are specifically designed to be integrated into security domes/cameras, police vehicles, photo booths, document stands, and low-vision systems. There are ten cameras in the FCB-EX Series line-up, and each incorporates a wide variety of optical zoom lenses ranging from 10x to 36x. With this breadth of choice, it’s never been easier to select the right camera for your specific monitoring applications.

High-sensitivity Images
All the cameras in the FCB-EX Series deliver exceptional picture quality thanks to Sony’s advanced CCD technology. They provide excellent sensitivity and low smear levels.
In particular, the FCB-EX20D/20DP incorporates the newly developed Super HAD CCD II that offers ultra-high sensitivity at 0.25 lx (F1.8, 50IRE).
Advanced Spherical Privacy Zone Masking
With these cameras, a maximum of eight masking areas can be displayed on the monitoring screen. Also, if these block cameras are incorporated into a Pan/Tilt/Zoom (P/T/Z) camera system, masked areas are interlocked with P/T/Z movement, regardless of the camera angle or camera movement. Up to 24 masking areas can be preset in the entire viewing range of a P/T/Z camera. Moreover, FCB-EX Series D version cameras can mask unwanted or prohibited areas within an image using a mosaic effect on top of the colour masking function.
Electronic Flip (e-Flip)
All the cameras in the FCB-EX Series have an e-Flip function that electronically flips an image upside down so that it is displayed on the monitor accurately. In a dome application, for example, if a tracked object moves beneath the camera dome, the image is inverted to maintain the correct orientation.
Slow AE Response Function
All of the cameras in the FCB-EX Series are equipped with a Slow AE response function to automatically slow the rate at which camera exposure levels change. The rate can be set up to 32 times slower than when Full-auto AE or Priority (shutter/ iris) modes are selected. This function is beneficial when monitoring areas in which lighting conditions change abruptly such as underground parking lots.
Picture Freeze
All of the cameras in the FCB-EX Series are equipped with a Picture Freeze function that allows for the output of a still image while the camera is panning, tilting, zooming, focusing, initializing the lens, or performing preset operations. For example, the camera will output a still image before it begins to pan, tilt, or zoom, and once the operation is completed, the camera continues to display images that are currently being monitored. In this way, unnecessary images are not displayed.
SMART (Sony Modular Automatic Lens Reset Technology) Lens Control
All of the cameras in the FCB-EX Series feature this function. Each incorporates SMA RT Lens Control technology, which monitors the focus position of the lens while zooming, and automatically compensates for any mechanical misalignment that may occur over long periods of continuous usage. With this beneficial feature, periodic lens initialization is no longer required during continuous 24-hour operation.
