Figure 3-3 Exposure
Brightness
Brightness refers to the brightness of the image.
You can set the brightness value from 1 to 10 to darken
or brighten the image. The higher the value is, the
brighter the image is.
Exposure Mode
You can set the Exposure Mode as Global, BLC, HLC,
and WDR.
 Global
Global refers to the normal exposure mode which
adjusts lighting distribution, variations, and
non-standard processing.
 BLC (Backlight Compensation)
BLC (Backlight Compensation) compensates light to the
object in the front to make it clear, but this may cause
the over-exposure of the background where the light is
strong.
 HLC (High Light Compensation)
HLC (High Light Compensation) masks strong light
sources that usually flare across a scene. This makes it
possible to see the detail of the image that would
normally be hidden.
 WDR (Wide Dynamic Range)
The wide dynamic range helps the camera provide clear
images even under backlight circumstances. WDR
balances the brightness level of the whole image and
provides clear images with details.
When WDR is selected as the exposure mode, you can
set it as low, medium, high or off.
AGC (Automatic Gain Control)
It optimizes the clarity of the image in poor light
conditions. The AGC level can be set as High, Medium,
or Low. Select Off to disable the AGC function.
Note:
The noise will be amplified when the AGC is on.
Slow Shutter
Slow Shutter increases the exposure time on a single
frame, which makes a camera more sensitive to light.
Therefore, it can produce images even under low lux
conditions. You can set the Slow Shutter as Off, x2, x4
under 8 MP@15fps, or 8 MP@12.5fps mode, and as Off,
x2, x4, x6, x8, or x16 under other modes according to
different light conditions.
3.3.2 WB (White Balance)
White balance, the white rendition function of the
camera, is to adjust the color temperature according to
the environment. It can remove unrealistic color casts in
the image. You can set WB mode as Auto, Manual, or
Natural.
Auto
Under Auto mode, white balance is being adjusted
automatically according to the color temperature of the
scene illumination.
Manual
Click Iris+ to enter the submenu, you can set the R


Dà N Threshold (Day to Night Threshold)

Day to Night Threshold is used to control the sensitivity
of switching the day mode to the night mode. You can
set the value from 1 to 9. The larger the value is, the
more sensitive the camera is.

Nà D Threshold (Night to Day Threshold)
Night to Day Threshold is used to control the sensitivity
of switching the night mode to the day mode. You can
set the value from 1 to 9. The larger the value is, the
more sensitive the camera is.

Contrast
This feature enhances the difference in color and light
between parts of an image. You can set the Contrast
value from 1 to 10.

Sharpness determines the amount of detail an imaging
system can reproduce. You can set the Sharpness value
from 1 to 10.
Saturation
Adjust this feature to change the saturation of the color.
The value ranges from 1 to 10.
3D DNR (Digital Noise Reduction)
The 3D DNR function can decrease the noise effect,
especially when capturing moving images in poor light
conditions, and deliver more accurate and sharp image
quality. You can set the 3D DNR value from 1 to 10.
Mirror
Off, H, V, and HV are selectable for mirror.
Off: The mirror function is disabled.
H: The image flips 180° horizontally.
V: The image flips 180° vertically.
HV: The image flips 180° both horizontally and
vertically.
Defog
It is used in special environments such as the foggy or
rainy weather, or in high illumination conditions, in
which the dynamic range is lower than that in the
ordinary environment and the image appears hazy.
Enable the defog function can enhance the subtle
details to display clear images.
