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, recording more detail in contrasting light areas and enhancing the ability to distinguish important features and shapes.

More details

WDR is designed to be used in applications where there is a large difference in foreground and background light levels, which is useful when viewing license plates at night.

The Technology

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 and light-sensitive 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 conditions.
