Sony Europe, ISS Division : 27 September, 2007  (New Product)
New HD camera from Sony ideal for intelligent imaging systems where space is a constraint
The new FCB-H10 colour camera module from Sony Europe¹s Image Sensing
Solutions Division addresses demanding picture quality requirements in (HD)
security, videoconferencing and broadcast applications by combining 10x
optical zoom with true high definition at 1080i or 720p. This first HD
camera in the Sony FCB Series is an ultra-compact (47.2 x 43.1 x 72.2mm)
unit and is expected to open up new areas for HD integration, including
those with limited space. The camera will be used by both commercial
product manufacturers and VARs looking to implement and retrofit high
definition video systems.

The FCB-H10 is a true HD unit delivering 60fps combined with multistandard
video support. The device also makes use of Sony¹s industry leading
auto-focus, auto-exposure and auto-white balance technologies to produce
superior images with less external intervention. Based on a 2Mpixel 1/3
type CMOS image sensor, the FCB-H10 is designed for applications in
intelligent CCTV/security, and environments that require high-quality remote
shooting such as surgery lamps, crane control, remote vehicle and

Featuring VISCA (TTL signal level) protocol, the Sony FCB-H10 eases the
migration to HD by offering a total of eight different video output formats,
with both HD and Standard Definition (SD) formats available. Video ouput
choices include 720p (progressive) or 1080i (interlaced), 50Hz PAL or 60Hz
NTSC, composite (SD) or component (HD) video. The camera module also
features crop and squeeze functionality for compatibility with both 16:9 and
4:3 screen aspect ratios.

The FCB-H10 provides a high-quality image which is further enhanced by the
inclusion of 10x optical zoom (up to 120x including digital). The lens
provides a wide viewing angle of up to 50 degrees and a high performance
Œminimum object distance¹ of 800mm (at maximum optical zoom) and lens
distortion of less than 3%.

Weighing around 120g and measuring 47.2 x 43.1 x 72.2mm, the FCB-H10 can be
used across the 0 to 45C temperature range, and requires a single 6-12V
power supply. It is available immediately.
