The FCB-EX985E/P is available in both PAL (FCB-EX985EP) and NTSC (FCB-EX985E) and adopts a number of new features designed for the digital age, including a new interlaced scan ¼-type Super HAD CCD II, high resolution (up to 550 TV line) and a digital output option, supporting the future demands of digital video infrastructure.
The camera module includes the same 28x zoom lens as the FCB-EX985E/P and thus incorporates new StableZoom™ technology. This feature combines image stabilisation with digital zoom in order to enhance the picture and maintain horizontal angle of view, resulting in a equivalent zoom ratio of 33x optical zoom. The 28x lens is highly durable supporting an extremely fast zoom capability (2.5 seconds from tele end to wide end).
The FCB-EX985E/P brings out the best in performance capability of the ‘bright’ nature of the new lens by combined the lens with a new Interlaced Scan Super HAD CCD II sensor, the result means the FCB-EX985E/P can operate at a minimum illumination of 0.25 lx (F1.35 measured at 50IRE). The picture quality at low light is further enhanced via the combined 2D/3D superior Enhanced Noise Reduction capability - with 5 levels. This together with an auto ICR function makes the FCB-EX985E/P particularly suitable for challenging outdoor video surveillance.
The FCB-EX985E/P also comes equipped with evermore sophisticated additional specifications, 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 make the FCB-EX985E/P the definitive choice for security and monitoring systems, but also suitable for inspection and UAV applications which require a combination of high zoom ratio with excellent minimum illumination capability.
