WDR - Forensic Capture

Many years of research and development also gave us WDR – Forensic Capture, which is available in many of our most advanced cameras. This method uses a set of advanced algorithms to lower noise levels and increase the image signal, in an effort to display every single detail in the best possible way.

The result is video that is highly optimized for forensic purposes, ensuring all details are captured in both dark and bright areas at the same time – even in scenes with very complex lighting conditions.

Furthermore, Axis cameras with WDR – Forensic Capture provide the ability to seamlessly transition between WDR and low-light mode. Compared to other currently available WDR technology, this method makes it easier to detect and identify important details in a scene.

For a better understanding, compare the level of detail in the two images below.
