FCB block cameras
Sony's Image Sensing Solutions (ISS) division has launched its next generation of FCB block cameras. The FCB-E range of OEM block video cameras gains a digital output, meaning users can integrate the device into IP-based applications, and a number of additional features.
Also included are several technologies that are new to the FCB range, such as true progressive scan, colour enhancement and new lens technology. The range's enhanced image stabilisation, horizontal resolution, white balance and wide D functionalities will increase the extensive range of applications.
The range will consist of seven modules, with the first in the series being the FCB-EX1020/P. This will use a ¼-type EXview HAD CCD image sensor coupled with a 36x optical zoom and 12x digital zoom to provide exceptional picture clarity. A stable zoom functionality, effectively extending zoom capability up to 40x magnification, has also been integrated.
