News: Flovel to Introduce High-Sensitivity HD Camera at NAB 2014
Camera's 3 HbCMOS Color Sensor Offers Supreme Color Fidelity, Reduced Noise, and Enhanced Sensitivity
(Tokyo, Japan--March 28, 2014) At next month’s NAB Show in Las Vegas, FLOVEL Company Japan, a FOR-A Corporation group company, will unveil its new FZ-B3 ultra high-sensitivity HD camera. The company will showcase the FZ-B3 within FOR-A’s NAB booth (C5117).
FLOVEL FZ-B3 camera has an unprecedented low-light sensitivity of 0.003 lux for color motion shooting. Employing 3 HbCMOS technology, its three CMOS color image sensor enables operators to capture high-fidelity color images with low noise at high sensitivity. The new compact camera records in 1080i (59.94Hz or 50Hz) and 720p (59.94Hz or 50Hz) HD-SDI formats.
Superior color fidelity combined with enhanced low-light sensitivity makes the FZ-B3 ideal for demanding high-resolution applications, such as: surveillance, microscopy, ecology observation, day/night policing and traffic control.
“Our new HD camera employs state-of-the-art imaging technology to produce high-quality HD color video reproduction at light levels as low as mere moonlight,” said Mr. Susumu Hotta, Senior Managing Director, FLOVEL. “We’re looking forward to showcasing this new camera at NAB, and are proud to offer it for use in a variety of demanding HD imaging applications throughout the world.”
The FZ-B3 marks FLOVEL’s latest addition to its high-end HD specialty camera line, which includes the FZ-B1 ultra high-sensitivity camera for day and night observation. The FZ-B1 has been used for Aurora observation in Alaska, night time observation from a space station, and deep sea shooting.
The FZ-B3 will be available in June of this year. FOR-A is the exclusive distributor of FLOVEL brand cameras in the U.S., Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
