Continuing Sony’s commitment to HD picture quality for applications that require dynamic, high-resolution images, Sony introduces the FCB-H11. This stunning HD camera block expands the application possibilities by incorporating a Day/Night capability resulting in a minimum illumination of 1.0 lx. This enables the camera to capture high quality colour images by day and clear, black and white images by night making the FCB-H11 a great choice for a wide range of security applications. The FCB-H11 HD camera module incorporates a 1/3-type HD CMOS image sensor boasting approximately two-million effective pixels, and provides a 16×9 aspect ratio making it ideal for use with wide screen displays. The FCB-H11 camera module also features multi-format video outputs from SD to full HD (1080i), offering both system flexibility and high quality images. The FCB-H11 therefore is a versatile and flexible camera block that can initially be used in an SD system but allows easy migration to HD when you are ready. In addition, the FCB-H11 inherits many outstanding features from the Sony world-renowned FCB Series. With a 10x optical zoom lens, and 12x digital zoom the reach of the two million effective pixel resolution is maximised. In addition, the camera includes other key features such as Picture Freeze Function, SPOT AE Function, and Slow Shutter. The FCB-H11 is ideal for applications such as inspection, video conferencing, cable TV broadcasting and point-of-view (POV) applications. Furthermore with the incorporation of the Day/Night function, the FCB-H11 achieves a minimum illumination of 1.0 lx by dynamically removing the infrared cut filter thus allowing the spectral range to extend into the near infrared. This capability is essential for monitoring, making the camera a great choice for a wide range of security applications in, for example, car parks, retail stores, and many others.
