Cameras play a crucial role in the field of security monitoring, and the SONY FCB series of integrated autofocus cameras are highly respected for their superior performance and advanced technology. Among them, day and night switching function is one of its more prominent features. Today, we will talk about the day and night switching function of SONY FCB camera and its important role in security monitoring.
01 Classification of Day and night switching
First, the SONY FCB all-in-one autofocus camera is equipped with a highly sensitive, ultra-low illumination CMOS sensor, which is able to capture more light in low-light environments and produce brighter images. The application of this sensor makes the camera have the ability to obtain clear images in the night or low light environment, which provides strong support for security monitoring.
Secondly, there are two ways for SONY FCB cameras to achieve day and night switching: automatic switching and manual switching.
The camera is equipped with infrared switching filters. During the day, filters filter out infrared light, making the image more realistic and natural; At night or in low light, the filter automatically switches to allow more infrared light to enter the sensor, improving image quality in low light. Manual switching ensures the authenticity and clarity of images under different lighting conditions, providing more accurate information for security monitoring.
SONY FCB cameras are usually equipped with an automatic switching function, which automatically selects the appropriate mode according to the lighting conditions of the environment. This means that users do not need to manually intervene, and the camera can automatically switch between day and night, ensuring the best quality of images.
02 Function of day and night switch
Provide clear surveillance images: Autofocus cameras can automatically adjust the aperture, shutter and gain according to changes in light, so that clear surveillance images can be obtained in the day and night. At night, the camera will switch to black and white mode, and use the infrared light emitted by the object itself, or infrared light illumination, to ensure the clarity and detail of the monitoring picture.
Improve monitoring reliability: The day and night switching function of the auto-focus camera ensures that the monitoring system can work properly under different lighting conditions. Whether it is day or night, the camera can automatically adjust the aperture, shutter, gain, to ensure the clarity and accuracy of the monitoring picture, improve the reliability of monitoring.
Reduce human intervention: The auto-focus camera’s day-night switching function reduces the need for human intervention in the camera. Traditional cameras need to manually adjust the focal length to adapt to different lighting conditions, but the automatic focus camera can automatically adjust the focal length according to the change of light, reducing the workload of manual operation.
Improved safety and efficiency: The auto-focus camera’s day-night switching function improves safety and productivity. At night, the camera switches to black and white mode, and uses the infrared light emitted by the object itself, or the irradiation of the infrared fill light, to obtain a clearer night monitoring picture and improve the security effect. At the same time, the automatic focus function can ensure the clarity and accuracy of the monitoring picture, and improve the efficiency of the monitoring system.
03 SONY FCB-9500 series ICR ON mode
SONY FCB-EW9500H,SONY FCB-EV9500M,SONY FCB-EV9500L feature ICR ON mode, the new ICR ON COLOR(night sensing infrared color mode) function allows the camera to shoot color images even when the infrared filter is removed to sense infrared light. Color images can be obtained effectively in dark environments.
To sum up
The day/night switching function of the SONY FCB camera enables the camera to automatically adjust the image in different lighting conditions through a highly sensitive sensor, intelligent algorithms and infrared switching filters, providing clear and realistic image performance. This makes them very useful in 24-hour monitoring and security applications.
