Sony's FCB-EX series of colour block cameras are equipped with an incredibly high 26x zoom lens which has a wide/telephoto horizontal field of view, making them ideally suited for use in security domes and traffic monitoring applications. These cameras incorporate an advanced Spherical Privacy Zone Masking feature which allows the masking function to be interlocked with the camera's pan/tilt/zoom movements, regardless of the camera angle, ensuring the individual’s privacy.

Key Features



In addition, the FCB-EX series incorporates high-performance Digital Signal Processing (DSP) which provides enhanced picture quality and operability compared to conventional block cameras.

The FCB-EX980 series combines a high-sensitivity 1/4-type EXview HAD™ CCD and Sony's new powerful 26x zoom "SMART" lens which has a wide horizontal field of view.

 In addition to the features above, these cameras are conveniently equipped with a variety of functions such as E-Flip, Alarm, Picture Freeze, and Auto ICR*1, which have all been inherited from earlier FCB-EX series cameras. Moreover, the entire FCB-EX series uses lead-free solder and halogen-free printed-circuit boards, making these cameras environmentally friendly.

Combining superb picture quality with a variety of unique and convenient features, the FCB-EX series cameras are the perfect match, both indoor and outdoor, for demanding security and monitoring applications.
