The FCB-EV5500 model uses Sony’s latest 1/3 type Exmor® CMOS image sensor with HD (720p60) at 60fps and 30x optical zoom

- HD (720p x 60) at 60fps and 30x optical

- Digital Output (Y/Cb/Cr 4:2:2): The digital LVDS interface provides easy access for IP and Gigabit Ethernet applications. Thanks to the digital interface, the quality of the camera’s video signal is maintained with minimal deterioration. This can lead to cost savings due to the direct connection with codecs/systems without the need for any additional components.

- Temperature Readout: The value of the internal temperature of the FCB-EV5500 camera can be read out via the VISCA protocol. When checking the internal temperature of equipment (i.e., speed dome unit), it is possible to use this data to turn a fan or heater on/off inside the equipment as needed.

- Color Enhancement: Ideally suited for low vision applications, new color enhancement options can make reading text and pictures less challenging. Available options include monochrome, binary, inverted and enhanced color modes.

- Wide-D Mode: The new FCB-EV5500 camera monitors the luminance differences within an image in high contrast environments. It is possible to select multiple levels of luminance at full 1920 x 1080/60p HD video output.

- White Balance CWB Modes: In addition to the Auto White Balance mode, the new FCB-EV5500 camera features additional modes, including Indoor, Outdoor, One-push WB, ATW, Manual, Sodium Vapor Lamp.

- Visibility Enhancement: Using the Visibility Enhancer function will make the darker part of a camera image brighter as well as automatically correct brightness and contrast to show bright parts clearly without overexposure.

- Defog mode: When the surrounding area of the subject is foggy and low contrast, the defog mode will make the subject appear clearer.

- Image Stabilization: Minimizes shaky images caused by low-frequency vibration.

- Auto ICR Function: The FCB-EV5500 camera features a high sensitivity imager, ideal for day/night functions: FCB-EV5500 provides less than 0.25 lux (F1.6, AGC on, 1/30 s)**while in high-sensitivity mode
