1/4″ EXview HAD CCD, Progressive Scan, resolution 550TVL, zoom 216x (18x optical), video output NTSC, digital output (Y/ Cb/ Cr – 4:2:2), Wide – D


Product overview

The FCB-EX490E/P is a progressive scan ¼-type EXview HAD CCD camera module, available in both PAL (FCB-EX490EP) & NTSC (FCB-EX490E). The camera module operates in high resolution (up to 550 TV lines) and includes an 18x optical zoom lens with digital output option, supporting the future demands of digital video infrastructure. The FCB-EX490E/P is specifically designed for challenging around-the-clock applications, operating at a minimum illumination of 0.7 lx (F1.4 measured at 50IRE). The picture quality is further enhanced at low light via the combined 2D/3D superior Enhanced Noise Reduction capability – which provides 5 levels of adjustment in order to select the most desirable image. This together with an auto on/off Wide Dynamic Range, and auto ICR function makes the FCB-EX490E/P particularly suitable for integration into both indoor and outdoor mainstream Video Surveillance environments. In order to meet a wider range of applications, the FCB-EX490E/P also comes equipped with evermore sophisticated additional specifications and features, including a wider operating temperature range, temperature readout, Colour Enhancement and Slow AE Response (beyond 10 minutes) as well as other features inherited from earlier FCB EX series cameras. These and other features whilst making the FCB-EX490E/P the definitive choice for mid range security & monitoring systems, also enable the camera to be perfectly suited to other applications, such as low vision systems, inspection and law enforcement support.

Product features

Please be aware that the features/specifications can differ from country to country

Excellent High Resolution Picture Quality

The FCB-EX490E/P incorporates a 1/4 type EXview HAD Progressive Scan 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 550 TV lines,
providing very clear and detailed images.

Progressive Scan

Network or IP cameras typically utilise back-end systems based on progressive scan. The FCB-EX490E/P is able to process images
directly in progressive scan mode in order to provide smooth consistent picture quality avoiding conversion from interlaced

Digital Output

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
and background. 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.

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.

Compact and Lightweight Design

With a compact and lightweight design (approx. 230g/8.1 oz), the camera can be integrated into a variety of space-restricted
environments. The dimensions of the FCB-EX490E/P are the same as previous equivalent 18x FCB models allowing for easy upgrade
to existing systems.
