    The Sony FCB-EH3150 HD Color block camera features 1/4-type Exmor CMOS sensor and a wide variety of features such as Wide-D, Auto-ICR, Provacy Zone Masking and Motion Detection, as well as an affordable price, this camera is sure to appeal to a wide variety of applications.

    The Sony FCB-EH3150 camera module with 12x zoom  incorporates a 1/4-type HD “Exmor™ CMOS sensor” providing high image quality and excellent sensitivity, capable of achieving an outstanding minimum illumination of 0.3lx (F1.6, 50IRE) in color when operating in High Sensitivity mode.

    The Sony FCB-EH3150 is feature rich, adopting a wide range of common features, including Wide Dynamic Range technology; a Day/Night function, and Sony’s unique digital noise reduction capability. In addition, the camera includes other key features such as Spherical Privacy Zone Masking, Picture Freeze Function, SPOT AE Function, and Electronic Shutter/Slow Shutter. When combined with the 12x Optical zoom lens the Sony FCB-EH3150 provides a powerful and compact HD solution which is ideally suited for use within the Video Surveillance and Security industry, but can also be used in applications such as inspection, video conferencing, broadcast and low vision due to additional features such as Color Enhancement.

    Superb Picture Quality with “Exmor™ CMOS sensor” technology

    The Sony FCB-EH3150 employs a highly sensitive 1/4-type HD CMOS sensor providing excellent high definition picture quality with superb performance in low light conditions.

    Multi-Format Video Outputs from NTSC/PAL to HD

    The Sony FCB-EH3150 achieves HD resolution at 720/60p. Depending on your application and configuration, you can however select the format that is right for you. With four HD video formats and the inclusion of legacy SD (PAL & NTSC), the FCB-EH3150 camera module allows you to easily migrate from SD to HD.

    144x Zoom Ratio (12x Optical + 12x Digital)

    The SonyFCB-EH3150 incorporates a 12x optical zoom lens allowing for a zoom capability of up to 144x when used in combination with its 12x digital zoom. It is when the module’s optical zoom is utilised that the benefit of HD can really be seen.

    Precise Alignment Technology

    The picture quality is further enhanced by the implementation of a new 6-axis alignment technology from Sony. This new mechanism provides precise alignment between the lens and the image sensor, allowing focus performance to be optimised.

    Simple Connection – one cable, one connector

    Covering video, VISCA communication, and power supply with a single cable, the Sony FCB-EH3150 is intelligently designed to minimise any complexity of integration. The camera supports 24-pin FFC interfaces.

    Day/Night & Wide-D Functions

    The Sony FCB-EH3150 is able to further optimise picture quality in changing light conditions which is a typical challenge in round-the-clock security operations. When operating in high sensitivity model the FCB-EH3150 can achieve a minimum illumination of 0.3lx with ICR off and an impressive 0.06 lx when ICR is activated (measured at F1.6, 50 IRE). In addition the Sony FCB-EH3150 is equipped with a Wide Dynamic Range function (Auto WDR mode available), further facilitating image quality when used in high contrast environments.

    Compact and Lightweight Design

    The compact and lightweight Indoor Sony FCB-EH3150 camera allows it to be installed in many different space-restricted environments.
