Sony Monochrome EIA 18x Block Camera

Sony FCB-EX45MC B/W Block Camera EIA

Combining superb picture quality with a variety of convenient functions, the FCB-EX45MC block camera enables you to offer your customers a remote controllable monochrome solution. Incorporating a 1/4 type B/W CCD with EXview HAD technology, the FCB-EX45MC camera achieves excellent sensitivity of less than 0.01 lux - making it ideal for extremely low-light environments traditionally needed in security dome, traffic monitoring, and facial recognition applications. Featuring a high performance Digital Signal Processor (DSP), the FCB-EX45MC camera realizes a high resolution of 520 TV lines. The FCB-EX45MC camera features the same specifications, dimensions and mounting holes as the FCB-EX45M camera, but comes equipped with an 18x lens featuring Sony's new "SMART" Lens Control technology and upgraded 3-D "Spherical Privacy Zone Masking" function.
