Features Benefits:
True Progressive Scan Ideally suited for IP-ready monitoring applications, the FCB-EX490E camera adopts a Progressive Scan mode to provide smooth and clear images when viewing details in a moving image (i.e., license plate of moving vehicles, a person running). All the processing is done by the PS from the CCD readout. signal to processing to video output.
Auto Wide-D Mode When dealing with high or low contrast lighting situations, the FCB-EX490E cameras monitor the luminance differences within an image and automatically switch on and off the Wide-D feature accordingly. Auto Wide-D is available in both Interlace and Progressive Scan modes.
Digital Output (ITU-R BT656) By using the digital interface, the quality of the FCB-EX490E's video signal does not deteriorate. This can lead to cost savings die to the direct connection to codecs/systems without the need for any additional components.
