Black And White 18x Block Camera EIA
Sony’s new FCB-EX45MC black-and-white block camera is especially suited for security-dome, traffic-monitoring, airline security and facial recognition applications. Incorporating a 1/4 type B/W EXview HAD CCD™, these cameras achieve excellent sensitivity of less than 0.01 lux – making them ideal for extremely low-light environments. Featuring a high-performance Digital Signal Processor (DSP), the FCB EX45MC camera also achieves a high resolution of 520 TV lines and is equipped with an 18x optical zoom lens.

These FCBEX45MC cameras are equipped with new and unique surveillance features such as an Enhanced Spherical Privacy Zone Masking function for use with a pan/tilt system and Sony’s SMART Lens Control technology. In addition, these FCB-EX cameras also inherit many popular functions from Sony’s earlier FCB-EX Series, such as Spot AE, quick camera control via a high-speed serial interface (max. 38.4 kb/s) and customizable settings. Combining superb picture quality and a variety of convenient functions (usually found in Sony’s color block cameras), the FCB-EX45MC is a remote controllable black-and-white surveillance and monitoring solution.

* The initial factory setting for the SMART Lens Control function is "OFF". When the function is turned OFF and the unit is used continuously for more than 24 hours, lens system initialization is recommended every 24 hours to extend the life of the lens. The "Initialize Lens" command takes a little less than 3 seconds to initialize the focus and zoom. When the Smart Lens Control function is turned ON, lens initialization is not required.
