4K autofocus zoom camera block for 30 fps industrial use

June 15, 2015 // By Julien Happich
Sony has taken its leading 4K technology from its consumer and professional products to create what the company believes to be the worlds' first 4K autofocus zoom camera block for the industrial market.

The FCB-ER8300 delivers true 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 Pixels) at 30fps, and includes 20x zoom capability with advanced zoom technology. Using Sony Sensor technology and powered by a ony image processor, the FCB-ER8300 can focus on the smallest detail whilst 70 degree Horizontal Field Of View (HFOV) allows for increased situational awareness over large areas.

The 4K resolution is maintained all the way to 20x zoom. Once optical zoom range is reached Super Resolution Zoom is implemented to ensure resolution is maintained at 4K up to 20x zoom. Unlike digital zoom this does not reduce the number of pixels in the image, therefore degrading the resolution.

Suitable for security, surveillance and other industrial applications, the 60 x 64 x 105 mm unit draws 3.7W with zoom/focus active, it is operated through the VISCA command protocol and comes with an HDMI output. It integrates into Pan, Tilt and Zoom camera systems.
