  • Page 31: Understanding Wide Dynamic Range

    Understanding Wide Dynamic Range Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) is a feature that allows clear viewing of both bright and low light areas in a scene. Use this feature if you need to view both indoor and outdoor lighting conditions simultaneously. For example, a dome is installed in the loading dock area of a building.

  • Page 32

    Figure 3–3: Example scene with loading dock door open and iris open adjustment. With WDR enabled, you can see the scenes both inside and outside the loading dock area. In Figure 3–4, you can see the boxes stacked inside the loading dock area and the car approaching the door. Figure 3–4: Example scene with loading dock door open and WDR enabled.

  • Page 33: Working With Agc And Open Shutter Settings

    Working with AGC and Open Shutter Settings The SpeedDome Ultra VII Day/Night dome provides settings for compensating for low-light scenes in color: Automatic Gain Control and Open Shutter. Automatic Gain Control (AGC) amplifies the video signal in scenes with minimal light. Many low-light scenes result in picture noise. As gain is increased, the picture noise is also amplified.

  • Page 34

    In this example, the dome receives information about the color of the traffic light. While the light is red, the image is relatively static. With the shutter limit set to 1/4 second (250 milliseconds), updated red light information is transmitted at 1/4-second intervals. When the light changes from red to green, updated light color information becomes available.

  • Page 35

    Configuring AGC and Open Shutter Settings Tip: The current IR mode setting affects which AGC Gain and Open Shutter settings are available. The Relationship between IR Mode and AGC and Open Shutter Settings chart on page 3–8 describes which settings are available. 1.
