Sony continues to add choice and flexibility to its FCB Series with the introduction of FCB-EX20D and FCB-EX20DP cameras. The FCB-EX20D/EX20DP incorporates a newly designed 1/3-type Super HAD CCD II sensor that provides increased sensitivity compared to cameras featuring the successful ¼ Super HAD™ CCD. The camera can operate under a minimum illumination of 0.25 lx. When combining Sony’s advanced Digital Signal Processing technology with this new CCD, the FCB-EX20D/EX20DP achieves a horizontal resolution of 530 TV lines, providing extremely clear and detailed images. Featuring a Day/Night function, the camera offers optimized sensitivity in changing light conditions, which is a typical challenge for 24/7/365 surveillance monitoring applications. In addition, the camera provides an extremely wide horizontal angle of view (5.4° to 50°) with a 120x zooming capability for exceptionally close inspection to capture detailed information. Moreover, to further improve camera performance, the FCB-EX20D/EX20DP offers a number of sophisticated functions such as advanced spherical privacy zone masking with a mosaic effect, video motion detection, multi-line on-screen display, and slow AE function. When utilized in a fixed-type, mini speed-dome, or as a Pan/Tilt/Zoom (P/T/Z) camera, the FCB-EX20D/EX20DP is the definitive choice for security and monitoring systems. The camera can be installed in videoconferencing and in low-vision systems. It can also be used in police vehicles and for underground inspection of oil and gas pipelines. The list of suitable applications is endless.
