Cameras in the new FCB-EX Series offer excellent picture quality
with a horizontal resolution of 670 TV lines, thanks to the use of
Super HAD CCD II™ image sensors and a newly developed image
processor. These cameras also incorporate high-performance optical
zoom lenses (including high-resolution 40x, and bright 28x and 18x
lenses), allowing you to select the right camera according to your
All of these cameras inherit a multitude of features from Sony’s
world-renowned FCB Series such as Wide-D*, Auto ICR, and Spherical
Privacy Zone Masking, and they are specifically designed to be
integrated into security domes/cameras. These features and breadth
of choice enable you to pick the right camera every time.
Super HAD CCD II Image Sensor
Thanks to high-performance Super HAD CCD II image sensors, the
FCB?EX2200P at 0.4 lx.* This sensor allows high-quality images to
be captured even in dark environments. Furthermore, it delivers an
excellent horizontal resolution of 670 TV lines, enabling detail to
be captured in scenes.

Progressive Scan Broadens Capabilities
In Progressive Scan mode, the video signal is processed by
progressive scan to achieve clear images without any flicker
effect. Since network cameras typically have backend systems based
on progressive scan, the original picture quality can be maintained
without requiring conversion from interlace scan to progressive
Powerful 18x Optical Zoom Lens
The Sony FCB-EX2200P camera is equipped with a high-resolution 18x
optical zoom lens. Together with digital zoom, these cameras
achieve a 216x zoom ratio, allowing high-quality picture capture
over long distances.
Wide Dynamic Range with New Technology
The Wide Dynamic Range (Wide-D) feature allows for the capture of
clear images in extreme lighting conditions.
* Auto Mode - When shooting in high- or low-contrast lighting
situations, the camera monitors the luminance differences within an
image and automatically switches the Wide-D feature on and off,
depending on the visibility of the subjects and background.
* Interlace Wide-D and Progressive Wide-D Modes - There are two
modes to choose from. Interlace Wide-D mode is ideally suited to
high-contrast lighting environments. Progressive Wide-D mode is
suited to low-contrast environments.
Visibility Enhancer (VE)
The powerful Visibility Enhancer corrects tone curve dynamically
and adaptively on a pixel-by-pixel basis while continuously
enabling greater visibility in contrasting environments.
The De-fog function helps to improve visibility in low-contrast
environments such as foggy or smoky scenes. This feature enhances
and optimizes contrast in this type of situation.
High-quality Digital Output
The Sony FCB-EX2200P block camera is equipped with a digital
interface (Y/Cb/Cr 4:2:2) which is comparable to ITU-R BT656. Using
this digital interface, the quality of the camera’s video signal
does not deteriorate. In addition, there is no need for an external
analog/digital converter between the camera and any other
Various Operation Modes
The Sony FCB-EX2200P camera has four operation modes so you can
choose the best one depending on your priorities for the
application: for example, sensitivity, resolution, or other
Enhanced Noise Reduction
By combining 2D and 3D noise reduction, the Sony FCB-EX2200P camera
offers a wide selection of noise-reduction settings, from Level 1
to Level 5, to allow you to choose the ideal level for different
The image stabilization function minimizes the appearance of shaky
images caused by low-frequency vibration. This function is useful
for outdoor surveillance and traffic monitoring applications.
StableZoom is a function for performing correction using the
image?stabilization function in accordance with the zoom ratio, and
smoothly zooming up using a combination of the optical zoom and
digital zoom. In StableZoom mode, this function starts naturally
without bringing an abrupt change to the horizontal angle of view.
Advanced White Balance
For the White Balance function, there are two different modes:
Outdoor Auto mode and Sodium Vapor Lamp mode. These modes are
designed to adapt to changing natural light outdoors and to
changing sodium vapor lamp lighting, respectively.
Extended Operating Temperature
The Sony FCB-EX2200P block camera can operate in a range of
temperature from -5°C to 60°C.
The Sony FCB-EX2200P camera unit’s internal temperature can be read
out via VISCA. This data can be used as reference data to activate
peripherals such as a fan or heater inside the camera equipment.
Slow AE Response
The Sony FCB-EX2200P block camera allows the user to set the auto
response speed (up to two minutes) to enable the cameras to adapt
to changes in lighting conditions. For example, when shooting in an
underground parking lot, valuable images could otherwise be missed
when car headlights cause an abrupt change in lighting conditions.
