Sony SSCE478 Day/Night Camera

Sony introduces new SSC-E478 series camera in order to further strengthen Sony's analogue security camera line-up. This new SSC-E478 series is included in the category called CS-Mount Color High Resolution type with Day/Night function which is expected to show CAGR of sixteen percent between year 2002 and 2006 in terms of world wide quantity base.

Day/Night function

SSC-E478 Series features a "Day/Night" capability, which provides optimized sensitivity in both day and night shooting applications. Under low light condition, SSC-E478 series automatically switches the infrared cut filter to a clear dummy filter and changes to B/W mode. This results in minimum illumination of 0.05 lx which is a drastic improvement from 0.55 lx in color mode. The refractive index of the dummy filter is adjusted to visible spectrum, considering that there is some visible light even under dark circumstances in the majority of cases. Therefore, if only infrared illuminator is available as light source, the object will become out of focus with standard lens. There are some near-infrared compatible lenses available from several manufacturers including Cosmicar to avoid it.

State-of-the-Art SuperExwaveTM Technology

SSC-E478 Series incorporates a newly developed 1/3-type CCD with SuperExwaveTM technology that achieves extremely high sensitivity levels and produces high quality images. This CCD imager provides a minimum illumination of 0.55 lx at F1.2, enabling cameras to capture clear and detailed images even under low light conditions. What's more, these cameras reproduce images with a high picture quality of 380,000 pixels (SSC-E473) / 440,000 pixels (SSC-E473P/E478P) and have an excellent S/N ratio of more than 50 dB.

Newly developed innovative DSP Technology

Unlike conventional DSP's, the newly developed DSP technology employed in these cameras increases the horizontal resolution attainable by the CCD. Thanks to a combination of this DSP technology and the SuperExwave CCD technology, these cameras offer a high-horizontal resolution of 540 TV lines, providing amazingly clear and detailed images.

Slim and stylish design

These slim and lightweight color cameras can easily be installed in places where space is limited and where installation was previously difficult for larger cameras. A stylish rear panel cover and transparent lens cap come as standard on these cameras so that they will not detract from the natural d
