Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

Wide Dynamic Range technology mechanically allows capturing an entire scene in challenging lighting conditions. One shutter is set to a short exposure, capturing the bright areas in the FoV, while the other is set for a long exposure, capturing the dark areas in the FoV. The camera then interlaces the images and combines them, capturing both areas with no loss of detail. This allows for an image capture even when there are very bright and dark areas in the camera’s field of view or images are distorted by a strong backlight.

  1. Enter camera's setup menu
  2. Go to Exposure
  3. Go to Backlight and select WDR
  4. Enter WDR submenu to adjust the level
  5. Save & Exit

Dynamic Range Compressor (DRC)

DRC enables dark areas in images to become more visible without overexposing the bright areas to create one perfect image

  1. Enter camera's setup menu
  2. Go to Exposure
  3. Select DRC
  4. Enter DRC submenu to adjust the level
  5. Save & Exit

Q. There are horizontal rolling bars on the monitor.
A.

This is a video ground loop due to more than one ground between camera and monitor/head-end

Ground Loop problems can be resolved by making sure that only one end of any video cable is
connected to a local ground. Make sure the video cable shields do not come into direct contact with
each other to prevent unintentional local grounding.

  1. Tape all connectors in such situations to minimize this risk.
  2. Keep camera runs as short as possible with all video cables cut to fit. Excess cable left along any run can increase the risk of interference.
  3. At the monitor end make sure all the CCTV equipment is connected to same power point to provide a common local ground.
  4. Implement a ground loop isolator
