IP Video Surveillance Cheat Sheet from IQinVision

One challenge that often arises with video surveillance systems is the inability of standard IP cameras to capture clear video in situations where there is a significant variance in lighting levels within a single scene. Often a security camera’s field-of-view encompasses both very bright and very dark areas simultaneously. When this occurs, standard surveillance cameras can’t simply adjust their iris settings or shutter speeds to optimize the amount of light that will produce viable image quality. Too much light, and the image is blown out; too little light, and the image is dark.

In this cheat sheet, we will cover the situations that are most appropriate for the deployment of WDR-enabled cameras, as well as some tips and tricks that will help you optimize the performance of your WDR security cameras.
