Download Brochure

Sony’s new FCB-EX11DP ultra-compact color block cameras can be easily integrated into mini-dome housings for superb observation. Their superb picture quality, excellent auto-focus performance and small size make them contenders in space restricted environments such as underground inspection systems of oil and gas pipes, low vision systems, police vehicles and more.

This new colour block camera inherit many of the outstanding features found in Sony’s new FCB D version cameras such as Slow AE Response, Advanced Spherical Privacy Zone Masking and Multi-line on-screen display.

The FCB-EX11D camera incorporate a ¼-type EXview HAD™ CCD with an Advanced Digital Signal Processor (DSP) to reproduce clear, detailed images at an extremely high horizontal resolution of 530 TV lines (compared to 470 TV lines found in the FCB-IX11A/IX11AP).

The FCB-EX11D camera is equipped with a 10x optical zoom lens and feature 120x Zoom Ratio (10x Optical, 12x Digital) compared to the FCB-IX11A/IX11AP’s 40x Zoom Ratio (10x Optical, 4x Digital).

As with Sony’s FCB D version cameras, these new FCBs feature a motion detection function. When motion is detected within an area of the picture designated by the user, an alarm signal is output via the camera’s control interface using the VISCA™ protocol. Users can designate up to four detecting areas freely from any 8 vertical and 12 horizontal blocks. The video motion detection function is useful for unattended monitoring/recording found in security applications.
