1. WDR(Wide Dynamic Range)
WDR function make the light area and dark area clearer.WDR is the ratio of lightest signal and
Darkest signal with DB as one unit.

Previously the WDR function is caused by CCD which has special DSP circuit.The special circuit is able to process the light exposure and dark exposure together and make pefect picture or video.
Due to the limitation of CCD sensitive,it is difficult to make a backthrough.
However,so far WDR of CMOS can be up to 160DB.120DB is real WDR.Less than 120DB is DWDR(Digital WDR).In future,the WDR from CMOS tech will capture the market of CCTV Camera.By the way DWDR function is that the picture is processed by the software not CCD or CMOS components.
