The world of HD expanded into the industrial imaging arena with the debut of Sony’s fifi rst HD block camera, the FCB-H10. Now, continuing its commitment to HD picture quality for applications that require dynamic, highresolution images that are also flfl 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 highquality 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 fifi 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-defifi nition (HD) and standard-defifi 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 flfl 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 worldrenowned 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 such as parking lots, retail stores, and many other locations.
