iShot® Sony FCB-ER8530 w/ Atomas Duo HDMI Kit

The Sony FCB-ER8530 w/ Atomas DUO HDMI Kit encoder platform is for systems requiring flexibility in their configuration. This package is ready for dual-camera systems with the SONY FCB-ER8530 Zoom Block Camera. This attachment board provides secondary input (digital or analog) such as a thermal camera like the FLIR Boson or Tenum 640 Module.

Items Included:

Super Resolution Zoom

  • FCB-ER8530 has 30x zoom, in sync with an optical 20 x zoom lens.
  • "By Pixel Super Resolution Technology" suppresses image degradation when an image is enlarged, providing excellent images at their original resolution.

4K @30fps images

The 1/2.5-type Exmor R CMOS image sensor successfully brings superb 4K (QFHD) picture quality. The FCB-ER8530 produces high-quality images using Sony's latest sensor technology in low-light conditions. 

20x optical zoom

The high-quality lens features an F2.0 maximum aperture and a 20x optical zoom range. Zoom operation is ideal for smooth, rapid transitions from wide area coverage to detailed close-ups in security and surveillance applications.

Image stabilizer

The Sony FCB-ER8530 features a built-in image stabilizer function that counters low-frequency vibrations. Applications include traffic monitoring and outdoor surveillance, where exposure to the elements can lead to shaking, such as on a bridge or tall structures. It ensures no compromise in image size and blur reduction.

Advanced 2D/3D Noise Reduction

Noise reduction technology filters noise from the images for precise results, especially in low light conditions. Noise reduction settings range from five different levels, and it suits a wide range of operating conditions.


The benefits of optimized picture quality in changing light conditions are frequent challenges in round-the-clock security operations. The Sony FCB-ER8530 operates effectively in lighting levels low as 0.21lx (50%, ICR off, Slow Shutter 1/4s, when High sensitivity is off) and 0.06 lx (50%, ICR off, Slow Shutter 1/4s, when High sensitivity is on). 

Visibility Enhancer and De-fog

This feature enhances Picture quality dynamically and adaptively on a pixel-by-pixel basis while continuously adapting to the scene within the given dynamic range. The de-fog features in the Sony FCB-ER8530 allow more precise viewing in foggy or misty settings.

Auto ICR (Auto IR-cut Filter Removal)

The Sony FCB-ER8530 automatically switches from day to night mode in low light conditions; removing the IR-cut filter boosts sensitivity for clear pictures in low-light conditions.

Wide range of features for versatile operation

The Versatile Sony FCB-ER8530 camera operation ensures a wide range of functions and adjustments, including White Balance modes; Picture effects (E-Flip, Black & White, Mirror Image, Gamma, Color Enhancement); Privacy Zone Masking; Picture freeze; Shutter Priority; Iris Priority (26 steps) Slow AE response, etc.
