Features Benefits:
True Progressive Scan The FCB-EX1020P is ideally suited for IP monitoring applications, adopting a Progressive Scan mode to provide smooth and clear images without interface artifact effects when viewing details in a moving image (i.e., license plates of moving vehicles, a person running). All the processing is done by the PS from the CCD readout, signal to processing to video output.
StableZoom Mode The FCB-EX1020 adopts a new method of Image Stabilization by using the digital zoom. When the optical zoom reaches a certain ratio, the Image Stabilization function starts to work by gradually combining with the digital zoom. The area is enlarged by the digital zoom and absorbs shaky movements.
Digital Output (ITU-R BT656) By using the digital interface, the quality of the FCB-EX1020’s video signal does not deteriorate. This can lead to cost savings due to the direct connection to codecs/systems without the need for any additional components.
