E-series camera module with digital and analogue outputs, 18x zoom lens and EXview HAD CCD Progressive Scan Sensor.
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.
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 scan.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
