Sony introduces new SSC-E470 series camera in order to further strengthen Sony's analogue security camera line-up. This new SSC-E470 series is included in the category called CS-Mount Color High Resolution type with Day/Night function which is expected to show CAGR of sixteen percent between year 2002 and 2006 in terms of world wide quantity base.
A Wide Auto Tracing White Range - ATW Pro & ATW
ATW is a feature that automatically adjusts the camera white balance to adapt to changes in lighting conditions. SSC-E470 Series provides an extremely wide ATW range of 2,000 K to 10,000 K, allowing adjustment-free operation under a variety of light conditions. Users can choose from two modes: ATW Pro and ATW. ATW Pro mode is ideal when the lighting condition changes frequently and is particularly suited to applications where the operator needs to see objects as they appear to the eye. This ensures that the precise color image is always obtained.
Back Light Compensation
Unwanted backlighting can often cause the subject matter of the image to be cast into shadows. The BLC function incorporated in these cameras automatically compensates for such conditions and allows the subject to be more visible. The BLC mode is selectable between OFF and ON.
SSC-E470 Series have CCD-IRIS function to automatically adjust the shutter speed depending on the amount of incident light. As the image brightness increases, the camera adjusts the exposure by automatically reducing the CCD photo sensor's exposure time (charge accumulation time). The CCD-IRIS enables to continuously control the exposure by electronically adjusting the shutter speed in the range from 1/60(NTSC) / 1/50(PAL) second to 1/100,000 second. Manual iris lens with CCD-IRIS function can be used instead of more costly automatic iris lens.
The SSC-E470 Series cameras are equipped with an advanced Turbo AGC function. This allows the user to boost camera gain up to 24 dB, enabling viewers of the image to distinguish the subject more easily - even if it is shot in low light. The AGC mode is selectable between OFF and TURBO.
