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 Colour 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 colour 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 SuperExwave TM 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 colour 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 the camera will not detract from the natural decor of the room in which they are installed.

Wide Auto Tracing White (ATW) Range

ATW is a feature that automatically adjusts the camera's white balance to adapt to changing light conditions. The SSC-E470 Series provides an extremely wide ATW range of 2,000 K to 10,000 K, allowing adjustment-free operation under a variety of light conditions. Users can choose from two modes: ATW Pro and ATW. ATW Pro mode is particularly suited to applications where the operator needs to see objects as they appear to the eye. This ensures that a precise colour image is always obtained.

Turbo AGC

The SSC-E470 series cameras are equipped with an advanced Turbo AGC function. This allows the user to boost camera gain to 24 dB, enabling viewers of the image to distinguish the subject more easily - even if it is shot in low light. The AGC mode is switchable between OFF and TURBO.

Back-Light Compensation (BLC)

Unwanted backlighting can often cause the subject matter of an image to be cast into shadow. The BLC function incorporated in these cameras automatically compensates for such conditions and allows the subject to be more visible.


The CCD IRIS function allows the use of a manual iris lens instead of a more costly automatic iris lens. As the image brightness increases, the camera adjusts the exposure by automatically reducing the CCD photo sensor's exposure time (charge accumulation time). This is achieved by using the CCD electronics shutter, which has a range of 1/60 (NTSC) / 1/50 (PAL) to 1/100,000 second.

DC-Servo Lens Connection Capability

The SSC-E470 series cameras supports the widely available DC servo lenses.


These cameras are equipped with a CS-mount, which provides compatibility with industry-standard CS-mount lenses.

Sync System

The sync system of these cameras can be switched between internal lock and AC line lock. When AC line lock is selected, the V-phase can be adjusted by ± 90°C.
