Sony FCB-EV7500 Block Camera

DISCONTINUED / CALL FOR AVAILABLE STOCK
Replacement Camera Here

The Sony FCB-EV7500 block camera uses a 1/2.8" CMOS image sensor (approx. 2.14 million effective pixels) that supports FULL HD (high definition) to produce high-quality images. Using progressive scan, images with a wide dynamic range can be obtained with the newly developed image signal processor (Wide Dynamic Range mode).  The camera is equipped with a bright zoom lens with 30× optical zoom and F1.6 aperture (optical zoom + digital zoom = 360×).

VIDEO SIGNALS AND LOW LIGHT FEATURES

The Sony FCB-EV7500 block camera's video signals can be output as digital and analog Y/Pb/Pr outputs. Depending on register settings, you can select from a variety of digital output methods: 1080p/59.94, 1080p/50, 1080p/29.97, 1080p/25, 1080i/59.94, 1080i/50, 720p/59.94, 720p/50, 720p/29.97, 720p/25.

An infrared (IR) Cut-Filter can be disengaged from the image path for increased sensitivity in low light environments. The ICR will automatically engage depending on the ambient light, allowing the Sony FCB-EV7500 block camera to be effective in day/night environment. Low-noise images can be obtained even in low-light environments using the Noise Reduction function.

VISCA COMMUNICATION

VISCA is a communications protocol, which enables the FCB-EV7500 to be controlled remotely from a host computer/controller. VISCA is trademark of Sony Corporation.

ONVIF compliant.

Six memory locations are provided to temporally save and recall up to sixteen sets of camera settings.

A Privacy Zone Masking function (max. 24 blocks) is available.

A Motion Detection (MD) function is available.

APPLICATIONS AND OEM SYSTEM INTEGRATIONS

OEM system integration camera for robotics, bomb disposal robot cameras, surveillance, police and security, Remote Ocean Vehicle (ROV) camera, Aerial and Aerospace Cameras, Unmanned Aerial cameras, intelligent traffic cameras, Unmanned Vehicle cameras (UAV), video conference cameras, warehouse cameras, and house of worship cameras


GENERAL FUNCTIONALITY

  • Power On/Off Powers the camera on and off. When the power is off, the camera is able to accept only the lowest level of VISCA Commands; the display and other features are turned off.
  • I/F Clear - Clears the Command buffer of the FCB camera.
  • Address Set - VISCA is a protocol, which normally supports a daisy chain of up to seven connected cameras via RS-232C interface. In such cases, the address set command can be used to assign addresses from 1 to 7 to each of the seven cameras, allowing you to control the seven cameras with the same personal computer. Although the FCB camera does not support direct connection of cameras in a daisy chain, be sure to use the address set command to set the address whenever a camera is connected for the first time.
  • ID Write - Sets the camera ID.
  • Mute - Blanks the screen and sends out a synchronizing signal.
  • Lens Initialize - Initializes the zoom and focus of the lens. Even when power is already on, it initializes the zoom and the focus.

ZOOM

The FCB-EV7500 employs a 30× optical zoom lens combined with a digital zoom function; this camera allows you to zoom up to 360×.

Optical 30×, f = 4.3 mm to 129 mm (F 1.6 to F 4.7)

The horizontal angle of view (1080i mode) is approximately 63.7 degrees (wide end) to 2.3 degrees (tele end).

Digital Zoom enlarges the center of the subject by expanding each image in both the vertical and horizontal directions. When 360× zoom is used, the number of effective picture elements in each direction reduces to 1/12 and the overall resolution deteriorates.

You can activate the zoom in the following ways with a VISCA command.

  • Using Standard Mode
  • Using Variable Mode
    • There are eight levels of zoom speed.
      (In these standard and variable modes, it is necessary to send Stop Command to stop the zoom operation).
  • Direct ModeDigital Zoom ON/OFF
    • Setting the zoom position enables quick movement to the designated position.

The Zoom Mode supports a Combined Mode and a Separate Mode.

  • Combined Mode
    • This is the previously existing zoom method. After the optical zoom has reached its maximum level, the camera switches to Digital Zoom Mode.
  • Separate Mode
    • In this mode, Optical Zoom and Digital Zoom can be operated separately. You can use digital zoom magnification at any time from within any level of optical magnification.
  • About Continuous Zoom Position Reply
    • With ZoomDirect mode, or when zooming according to a preset, the camera outputs zoom position data when Continues Zoom position Reply is set to ON via a command.
    • Continues Zoom position Reply: y0 07 04 69 0p 0p 0q 0q 0q 0q FF
      • pp: D-Zoom position
      • qqqq: Zoom position

FOCUS
Focus has the following modes, all of which can be set using VISCA Commands.

Auto Focus Mode

The minimum focus distance for the FCB-EV7500 is 10 mm at the optical wide end and 1200 mm at the optical tele end, and is independent of the digital zoom. The Auto Focus (AF) function automatically adjusts the focus position to maximise the high frequency content of the picture in a center measurement area, taking into consideration the high luminance and strong contrast components.

  • Normal AF Mode
    • This is the normal mode for AF operations.
  • Interval AF Mode
    • The mode used for AF movements carried out at particular intervals. The time intervals for AF movements and for the timing of the stops can be set in one-second increments using the Set Time Command. The initial value for both is set to five seconds.
  • Zoom Trigger Mode
    • When the zoom is changed, the pre-set value (initially set at 5 seconds) becomes that for AF Mode. Then, it stops.

AF sensitivity can be set to either Normal or Low.

  • Normal
    • Reaches the highest focus speed quickly. Use this when shooting a subject that moves frequently. Usually, this is the most appropriate mode.
  • Low
    • Improves the stability of the focus. When the lighting level is low, the AF function does not take effect, even though the brightness varies, contributing to a stable image.
       

Manual Focus Mode

Manual Focus has both a Standard Mode and a Variable Mode. Standard Mode focuses at a fixed rate of speed. Variable Mode has eight speed levels that can be set using a VISCA Command.

In these standard and variable modes, it is necessary to send Stop Command to stop the zoom operation.

One Push Trigger Mode
When a Trigger Command is sent, the lens moves to adjust the focus for the subject. The focus lens then holds that position until the next Trigger Command is input.

Infinity Mode

The lens is forcibly moved to a position suitable for an unlimited distance.

Near Limit Mode

Can be set in a range from 1000 (∞) to F000 (10 mm). Default setting: D000h (30 cm)


WHITE BALANCE

White Balance has the following modes, all of which can be set using VISCA Commands.

Auto White Balance

This mode computes the white balance value output using color information from the entire screen. It outputs the proper value using the color temperature radiating from a black subject based on a range of values from 2500K to 7500K. This mode is the factory setting.

ATW

Auto Tracing White balance (2000K to 10000K)

Indoor

3200K Base Mode

Outdoor

5800K Base Mode

One Push WB

The One Push White Balance mode is a fixed white balance mode that may be automatically readjusted only at the request of the user (One Push Trigger), assuming that a white subject, in correct lighting conditions, and occupying more than 1/2 of the Image, is submitted to the FCB-EV7500. One Push White Balance data is lost when the power is turned off. If the power is turned off, reset One Push White Balance.

Manual WB

Manual control of R and B gain, 256 steps each

Outdoor Auto

This is an auto white balance mode specifically for outdoors. It allows you to capture images with natural white balance in the morning and evening.

Sodium Vapor Lamp Auto

This is an auto white balance mode that is compatible with sodium vapor lamps.

Sodium Vapor Lamp

This is a fixed white balance mode specifically for sodium vapor lamps.

Sodium Vapor Lamp Outdoor Auto

This is an auto white balance mode specifically for outdoors, which is compatible with sodium vapor lamps.

Note: High-pressure sodium lamps are supported. Proper white balance may not be captured for some subjects when using low-pressure sodium lamps.


AUTOMATIC EXPOSURE MODE

A variety of AE functions are available for optimal output of subjects in lighting conditions that range from low to high.

Full Auto

Iris, Gain and Shutter Speed can be set automatically.

Gain Limit Setting

The gain limit can be set at the Full Auto, Shutter Priority, Iris Priority, Bright, Spot Exposure and Manual in the AE mode. Use this setting when image signal-to-noise ratio is particularly important.

Shutter Priority¹

Variable Shutter Speed, Auto Iris and Gain (1/1 to 1/10,000 sec., 16 high-speed shutter speeds plus 6 low-speed shutter speeds)

  • 1) Flicker can be eliminated by setting shutter to
    • →1/100s for NTSC models used in countries with a 50 Hz power supply frequency
    • →1/120s for PAL models used in countries with a 60 Hz power supply frequency

Iris Priority

Variable Iris (F1.6 to Close, 14 steps), Auto Gain and Shutter speed

Manual

Variable Shutter, Iris and Gain

Bright

Variable Iris and Gain (Close to F1.6, 14 steps and F1.6 at 15 steps)

AE – Shutter Priority

The shutter speed of the FCB-EV7500 can be set freely by the user to a total of 22 steps – 16 high speeds and 6 low speeds. When the slow shutter is set, the speed can be adjusted according to subject brightness. The picture output is read at a normal rate from the memory. The memory is updated at a low rate from the CMOS. AF capability is low. In high speed mode, the shutter speed can be set up to 1/10,000s. The iris and gain are set automatically, according to the brightness of the subject.

AE – Manual

The shutter speed (22 steps), iris (14 steps) and gain (15 steps) can be set freely by the user.

AE – Bright

The bright control function adjusts both gain and iris using an internal algorithm, according to a brightness level freely set by the user. Exposure is controlled by gain when dark, and by iris when bright. As both gain and iris are fixed, this mode is used when
exposing at a fixed camera sensitivity. When switching from Full Auto or Shutter Priority Mode to Bright Mode, the current status will be retained for a short period of time. Only when the AE mode is set to “Full Auto” or “Shutter Priority,” can you switch it to “Bright.”

When switching from the Shutter Priority mode to the Bright mode, the shutter speed set in the Shutter Priority mode is maintained.

Spot Exposure Mode

In Full Auto AE, the level for the entire screen is computed and the optimum Auto Iris and Gain levels are determined. In Spot AE, a particular section of the subject can be designated, and then that portion of the image can be weighted and a value computed so that Iris and Gain can be optimized to obtain an image. For example, in an image with a lot of movement and with varying levels of brightness, portions without much change can be designated as such a “spot,” and changes to the screen can be minimized in that area. Exposure Compensation

Exposure compensation is a function which offsets the internal reference brightness level used in the AE mode, by steps of 1.5 dB.


Slow AE (Automatic Exposure)

The slow AE Response (automatic exposure) function allows you to reduce the exposure response speed. Usually the FCB-EV7500 camera is set up so that the optimum exposure can be obtained automatically within about 1 second. However, using the slow AE response function allows you to lengthen the automatic exposure response speed from the factory setup speed (01h to approx. 10 minutes (30h (at normal shutter speed)). For example, with the normal setting (about 1 second), if the headlights of a car are caught by the camera, the camera automatically adjusts the exposure so that it can shoot a high-intensity subject (in this case, the headlights). As a result, images around the headlights, that is, the rest of the subject, except the headlights, becomes relatively dark, and poorly distinguished. However, using the slow AE function means the AE response speed will be slower, and response time will be longer. As a result, even if the camera catches a highintensity subject (e.g., the headlights) for a moment, you can still easily distinguish the portions of the image surrounding the headlights.


High Resolution Mode

This mode enhances edges and produces higher definition images.


Aperture Control

Aperture control is a function which adjusts the enhancement of the edges of objects in the picture. There are 16 levels of adjustment, starting from “no enhancement.” When shooting text, this control may help by making them sharper.


Back Light Compensation

When the background of the subject is too bright, or when the subject is too dark due to shooting in the AE mode, back light compensation will make the subject appear clearer.


Wide Dynamic Range Mode (WD)

The Wide Dynamic Range mode is a function for dividing an image into several blocks and correcting blocked-up shadows and blown-out highlights in accordance with the intensity difference. It enables you to obtain images in which portions ranging from dark to light can be recognized, even when capturing a subject with a large intensity difference that is backlit or includes extremely light portions.

Images with wide dynamic range are produced by combining long-exposure signals (normal shutter) with the signals of the high-intensity portions obtained with a short exposure (high-speed shutter).
About WD Set Parameter (Command: 8x 01 04 2D 00 0q 0r 0s 00 00 00 00 FF)

  • q: Display brightness
    • (0: Dark to 6: Bright)
    • The brightness and the darkness can be adjusted to seven levels. The normal brightness is set to 3.
    • Default value: 3
  • r: Brightness compensation selection
    • (0: Darker, 1: Dark, 2: Standard, 3: Bright)
    • Set the area which you want to adjust the brightness of the image with WD mode effect.
    • Default value: 2
  • S: Compensation level
    • (0: Low, 1: Mid, 2: High)
    • The compensation of the brightness, which you select from the parameter, can be set to three levels.
    • Default value: 1

Notes

  • When the wide dynamic range mode is ON, false colors may appear in some parts of the image. This phenomenon is unique to wide dynamic range mode, and is not an indication of a camera malfunction.
  • When switching WD mode, images are shown at a maximum of 8 frames at the same time.

Visibility Enhancer (VE)

Using the Visibility Enhancer function will make the darker part of a camera image brighter as well as automatically correct brightness and contrast to show bright parts clearly without overexposure.


Defog Mode

When the surrounding area of the subject is foggy and low contrast, the defog mode will make the subject appear clearer.


Noise Reduction

The NR (Noise Reduction) function removes noise (both random and non-random) to provide clearer images. This function has six steps: levels 1 to 5, plus off. The NR effect is applied in levels based on the gain, and this setting value determines the limit of the effect. In bright conditions, changing the NR level will not have an effect.


High Sensitivity Mode

In this mode, higher sensitivity gain is applied as standard gain increases, reaching a gain level at MAX gain of up to 4x the standard gain. In such cases, however, there will be a high volume noise in the image.


Custom Gamma Mode

Gamma correction can be changed in this mode. The following two options are available.

  • 0: Standard
  • 1: Straight gamma

Tip - You can set the brightness from -16 (0h) to +64 (40h) for each mode in Offset.


Color Enhancement

A color image can be created two colors brighter and darker than the threshold value. (The threshold level can be set.)

Color Specifications

  • You can select from nine colors to specify for the high-intensity and low-intensity colors.
    • Color options: Yellow, cyan, green, white, magenta, red, blue, black, gray
  • The default settings for color specification are “green” for high-intensity and “white” for low-intensity.

Threshold Values

  • You can set the threshold value that determines high or low intensity.
  • The minimum threshold value is 1h (decimal: 1), and the maximum threshold value is FE1h (decimal: 4065).
  • The default setting for the threshold value is 200h (decimal: 512).

Note - Flicker on images with color enhancement is not a malfunction of the camera. Flicker can be reduced by setting the aperture control.


Temperature Reading Function

The conversion value (hex) of the temperature sensor built into to the camera can be read by using a query command. The conversion value has an error of ±3 C, and because the temperature sensor is inside the camera, this value is not the ambient temperature. Use it as a reference value.


StableZoom™

StableZoom is a function for performing correction using the Image Stabilizer function in accordance with the zoom ratio, and smoothly zooming up to approximately ×36 using a combination of the optical zoom and digital zoom. The digital zoom can be further used to zoom up to ×360. At the wide end, you can obtain images without any reduction in the resolution because the digital zoom is not switched ON. On the other hand, at the tele end, the correction effect by the Image Stabilizer function is at its maximum so blurring is reduced. The StableZoom function can be switched ON/OFF in the register settings.


Image Stabilizer

Switching ON the Image Stabilizer function reduces image blurring caused by, for example, vibration, which allows you to obtain images without much blurring. A correction effect is possible for a vibration frequency of around 10 Hz. The Image Stabilizer function employs the digital zoom system, so the angle of view and resolution are changed, but the sensitivity is maintained.

Hold Function of Image Stabilizer

With the Image Stabilizer function, suddenly stopping high-speed movement (pan, tilt, etc.) of the camera produces a blur sensor counteraction that may cause image movement. In such a case, you can use a command setting (hold) to maintain the correction of the Image Stabilizer function. In this case the image stabilizer is off, but there is no change in the angle of view.

Note

The hand shake correction function may not work correctly under the condition that high-frequency vibration component exits. In such a case, set the image stabilizer function to OFF.


Auto Slow Shutter On/Off

When set to “On,” the slow shutter functions automatically when the light darkens. This setting is available only when the AE mode is set to “Full Auto.” The default setting is “Auto Slow Shutter Off.”


Low-Illumination Chroma Suppress Mode

You can configure a chroma suppress mode for lowillumination conditions. This can be useful when color noise is particularly noticeable in such conditions. Four levels (disabled and three levels) are available for the low-illumination chroma suppress mode.


ICR (IR Cut-Removable) Mode

An infrared (IR) Cut-Filter can be disengaged from the image path for increased sensitivity in low light environments. The ICR will automatically engage depending on the ambient light, allowing the camera to be effective in day/night environments. When the auto ICR mode is set to ON, the image becomes black and white.


Custom Color Gain

You can customize and configure the color gain. Use this setting when bright color is particularly important. The initial setting 100% (4h) can be set to range from approx. 60% (0h) to 200% (Eh) with 15 stages.


Custom Color Phase

You can customize and configure the color phase. The initial setting 0 degrees (7h) is adjustable between approx. −14 degrees (0h) and +14 degrees (Eh), in 15 increments.


Auto ICR Mode

Auto ICR Mode automatically switches the settings needed for attaching or removing the IR Cut Filter. With a set level of darkness, the IR Cut Filter is automatically disabled (ICR ON), and the infrared sensitivity is increased. With a set level of brightness, the IR Cut Filter is automatically enabled (ICR OFF). Also, on systems equipped with an IR light, the internal data of the camera is used to make the proper decisions to avoid malfunctions. Auto ICR Mode operates with the AE Full Auto setting.

Note

Depending on the information such as brightness, etc., in the ON/ OFF settings condition, a malfunction may occur when the subjects largely consisting of blue and green colors are taken.
