Launch the camera webpage
Click “Setting” and select the desired channel to be the cameras “Exposure Reference Channel” (see
Image 16). Setting an Exposure Reference Channel will reduce the color and brightness variations
among channels. Channel numbers are shown in Image 17.

NOTE: The default setting for the “Exposure Reference Channel” is “Auto”, which means that each channel
is automatically adjusted to provide the best WDR scene. This may cause variations from image to image,
however the camera is providing the best image for each channel. When different channels are under
different lighting conditions, there will be some color or brightness variation among the channels. See below
for an example on how to adjust different reference channels to minimize brightness and color differences.
NOTE: Using Exposure Reference Channel Setting may result in abnormal noise which can’t be resolved!
