Cameras in the new FCB-EX Series offer excellent picture quality with a horizontal resolution of 670 TV lines, thanks to the use of Super HAD CCD IItm image sensor and a newly developed image processor. These cameras also incorporate high-performance optical zoom lenses (28x), allowing you to select the right camera according to your varying needs.
All of these cameras inherit a multitude of features from Sony’s world-renowned FCB Series such as Wide-D, Auto ICR, and spherical Privacy Zone Masking, and they are specifically designed to be integrated into security domes/cameras. These features and breadth of choice enable you to pick the right camera every time.
Please be aware that the features/specifications can differ from country to country
Excellent High Resolution Picture Quality
The FCB-EX2400 incorporates a 1/4 type Super HAD II CCD sensor that offers improved sensitivity and colour reproduction. By
combining a powerful DSP with this CCD, the camera achieves a high horizontal resolution of 670 TV lines, providing very clear
and detailed images.
Network or IP cameras typically utilise backend systems based on progressive scan. The FCB-EX2400 is able to process images
directly in progressive scan mode in order to provide smooth consistent picture quality avoiding conversion from interlaced
The camera is equipped with a digital interface (Y/Cb/Cr 4:2:2) which is comparable to ITU-R BT656. The video output is therefore
free from signal deterioration. Furthermore no external analogue/digital converter is required between the camera and other
equipment, bringing down the overall integration cost.
Enhanced Noise Reduction
By combining 2D and 3D noise reduction, the camera offers a wide selection of noise-reduction settings, from Level 1 to Level
5. This lets you choose the best level according to environmental conditions.
Wide Dynamic Range with New Technology
In Auto mode, the Wide Dynamic Range function is automatically turned on and off, depending on the visibility of the subjects
Interlace Wide-D and Progressive Wide-D Modes
There are two modes of Wide D — Interlace mode which provides better performance with moving subjects, and Progressive mode
which provides clearer images of still subjects.
In StableZoom™ mode, image stabilization starts naturally without bringing an abrupt change to the horizontal angle of view.
Compact and Lightweight Design
With a compact and lightweight design (approx. 245 g), the camera can be integrated into a variety of space-restricted environments.
Slow AE Response Function
The camera’s Auto Exposure speed for adapting to changes in lighting conditions can be set as slow as required, even as
slow as 10 minutes. The speed of adaptation can be slowed down in order to suit some conditions. For example, such as an underground
car park where without a change in AE response, the camera could miss some important images when car headlights appear in
the scene causing an abrupt change in lighting conditions.
