Wide Dynamic Range

What is Wide Dynamic Range?

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) processes images to ensure clear recordings in bright and dark light. This allows the Dash Cam to combine multiple images at different levels of brightness to create one superior image.

More details

The benefit of WDR in a Dash Cam is to record more detail in contrasting light areas. WDR increases the capacity to view a greater level of detail and enhances the ability to distinguish important features and shapes.

WDR is designed to be used in situations where there is a large difference in foreground and background light levels (there is a wide dynamic range of light). This is useful when viewing number plates at night, which can be tricky when plates are reflective. WDR helps solve this issue by improving the quality and clarity of the image, which is of vital importance when passing on evidence to an insurance firm or the police in the event of an incident.

Multiple frames combined

WDR captures more detail by taking multiple frames at different contrasts then combining them to create one enhanced image. This provides the best image possible whether it is in direct sunlight or under the heavy contrast of street lights at night. For example, when driving from the shade into direct sunlight, the cam will automatically adjust the recording to make sure it is always recording the optimum image.

Dash Cams with WDR technology have advanced sensors that can produce a wider range of lighting, allowing them to record in a higher light depth. This method requires an extremely fast light sensor, which is only available on advanced Nextbase models. With the implementation of WDR, Dash Cams have an improved ability to provide enhanced images in the most challenging of conditions.
