Sony FCB-EV9500M 30x MIPI Block Camera

The Sony FCB-EV9500M 30x Block Camera produces Full HD 1080p/60 video output in the digital mobile processor industry interface (MIPI®) signal. This OEM block camera produces high-quality HD images ideal for mobile phones, tablets, and laptop displays. Complete with high sensitivity in low-light environments and image stabilization, the FCB-EV9500M is suited for many applications, including fixed-position surveillance, UAV drone surveillance and inspection, or automatic license plate recognition (ALPR).

High Resolution   

The sharp lens and 2MP sensor achieve accurate image representation and superior resolution. The superior AF/AE/ AWB functions even in low-light conditions.

30x Optical Zoom

There is no image deterioration with the 30x optical zoom alongside full sharpness and dramatically reduced chromatic aberration in Full HD output, and achieved images with a sharp resolution during 4MP output.

Super Image Stabilizer

Enables capturing exact video with reduced blurring even in harsh environments with vibrations by significantly improving image stabilizer.

  • Available during full HD or HD output
  • With the “Super” and “Super+ (plus)”* modes

Color image acquisition when ICR ON

Only black and white images are achieved on conventional models while the IR cut filter is off.

The new ICR ON COLOR function allows the camera to capture images with color even with the IR cut filter removed, making it practical for color rendering in darker conditions.

  • The accuracy of color reproduction ranges depending on the light source and brightness.

Super Image Stabilizer

Applies a wide correction area using 4MP; this camera series suppresses blurs from vibrations and rotational vibrations compared to conventional models. Two modes are available to select from based on the scale of vibrations.

  • Super

This feature suppresses strong vibrations with a wider correction area than conventional electronic vibration suppressors.

  • Super+

Employs a wider correction area than “Super,” “Super+” suppresses intense vibrations that the “Super” feature cannot stop.

  • Potential applications include Shipboard, attachments for ITS surveillance, bridges, drones, vehicles, etc.

Wide Dynamic Range (Wide-D)

The Wide Dynamic Range divides an image into several blocks for correcting blocked-up shadows and blown-out highlights by the intensity difference. 

Spot Focus · Spot AE · Spot AWB

This feature Enables AF, AE, and AWB only in specified areas within the screen. It also allows for the independent specification of any rectangle of the entire screen divided into 6 x 8.
