The world of HD expanded into the industrial imaging arena with the debut of Sony’s ﬁ rst HD block camera, the FCB-H10. Now, continuing its commitment to HD picture quality for applications that require dynamic, high-resolution images that are also ﬂ exible, Sony is introducing the FCB-H11. This stunning new model extends application possibilities by incorporating a new Day/Night function that enables the camera to capture high-quality color images during the day and clear, black-and-white images at night. In addition, the FCB-H11 camera achieves a minimum illumination of 1.0 lx by dynamically removing the infrared cut ﬁ lter and allowing the spectral responsivity range to extend into the near infrared. The FCB-H11 incorporates a 1/3-type HD CMOS image sensor boasting approximately two million effective pixels, and provides a 16 x 9 aspect ratio, making it ideal for use with wide-screen displays. This camera also features multi-format video outputs, satisfying user needs for high-deﬁ nition (HD) and standard-deﬁ nition (SD) applications. When extremely clear, super picture quality HD images are required, the FCB-H11 camera offers 1080i and 720p signals. This versatile and ﬂ exible camera can also be used with an SD system to allow easy migration from SD to HD when you are ready. The FCB-H11 inherits a multitude of functions from the world-renowned FCB Series. With a 120x zooming capability, Picture Freeze function, SPOT AE function, and Slow Shutter, the FCB-H11 is ideal for applications such as inspection, video conferencing, cable TV broadcasting, and point-of-view (POV) applications. Furthermore, with the incorporation of the Day/Night function, which is essential for monitoring, this camera is a great choice for a wide range of security applications in, for example, parking lots, retail stores, and many other locations.
