FCB block cameras
Sony Europe's Image Sensing Solutions division has added three high definition models to its FCB range of block cameras, which come with both digital and analogue outputs. All three HD units benefit from Sony's high quality Exmor CMOS sensor technology.
The camera modules are among the most efficient on the market, requiring just 3.4W (4.7W when the motors are active); are operational from -5°C to 60°C and are ideally suited to CCTV, intelligent transport, IP monitoring, and low vision applications.
The FCB-EH6300 becomes the series' flagship camera and uses its 1/3-inch Exmor sensor to deliver 1,080p video at 30fps. The camera has a minimum required illumination of just 0.5 lux, a 240x total magnification (20x optical and 12x digital zoom) and a wide 55.4° viewing angle.
The FCB-EH3400 and FCB-EH3300 use the 1/4-inch Exmor sensor to capture 720p video at 60fps. They have been designed for applications, such as casino monitoring, where a high frame rate, large optical zoom (28x/20x) and wide viewing angle (55.9° to 2.1°/2.9°) are essential. Both cameras have a minimum required illumination lower than 1 lux.
All three camera modules include privacy zone masking, a range of picture effects that include colour enhancement, e-flip, mirror image and nega-art and a diverse array of white balance models.
The 240g cameras measure 50 x 60 x 89.7mm and will be available from the end of June.
