FCB-EX48E/EP 18x Standard Definition

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.

Digital Output - 
The camera is equipped with a digital interface (Y/Cb/Cr 4:2:2) which is comparable to ITU-R BT656.
The video output is free from signal deterioration, and no external analog/digital converter is required between the camera and other equipment.
 
Enhanced Noise Reduction - 
By combining 2D and 3D noise reduction, the camera offers a wide selection of noise-reduction settings, from Level 1 to Level 5. This lets you choose the best level according to current conditions.
 
High-resolution Images - 
The camera achieves a high horizontal resolution of 550 TV lines to reproduce very clear and detailed images.
 
 
Advanced White Balance – 
For the White Balance function, there are two different modes:
Outdoor Auto mode and Sodium Vapor Lamp mode. These modes are designed to adapt to changing natural light outdoors, and to changing sodium vapor lamp lighting, respectively.
 
Extended Operation Temperature - 
The camera can operate in a range of temperature from -5°C to 60°C.
 
Temperature Readout – 
The camera unit’s internal temperature can be read out via VISCA. This data can be used as reference data to activate peripherals such as a fan or heater inside the camera equipment.
 
Slow AE Response – 
The camera’s Auto Exposure speed for adapting to changes in lighting conditions can be set as slow as required, even as slow as 10 minutes. The speed of adaptation should be slowed down under some conditions, such as an underground parking lot where the camera might otherwise miss some important images when car lights cause an abrupt change in lighting conditions.
 
Colour Enhancement – 
Using the Colour Enhancement function, a full-colour image can be changed to black and white, and then inverted into two selected colours. This function can be used in applications for low-vision systems to assist people with weak eyesight to read using a camera and display, relieving them of eye strain.
