Sony 10X Progressive Scan Colour Block Camera
Sony FCB-PV10 10x Color Progressive Scan Block Camera

Sony is expanding its FCB camera series to include for the first time Progressive Scan (PS) color block models. The FCB-PV10 features Progressive Scan CCD technology with square pixels, Primary Color filters for precise color reproduction, and a digital YUV 4:2:2 interface. This camera is an optimum solution for high-speed shooting applications, such as traffic monitoring, license plate capture, and monitoring from mobile police vehicles, thanks to its progressive scan CCD sensor that produces high-quality images with crisp edges. It is also a powerful solution when it comes to still image applications. The FCB-PV10 camera incorporates a ¼ -type Super HAD™ PS CCD with an 10x optical zoom lens. The camera outputs a VGA size image (640 x 480) and offer frame rates of 29.97 or 25 fps (switchable). The new FCB-PV10 camera combines unique features with many convenient functions inherited from previous FCB models. With its Primary Color filters and square pixel CCD, the FCB-PV10 camera achieves precise color reproduction and exceptional picture quality - a must for videoconferencing, low vision, photo booths, and document stands.
