Sony provides many different camera options and configurations.


View-DR is Sony's latest Wide-D technology that is used in security cameras to produce images with an extremely wide dynamic range. With View-DR, the camera uses an electronic shutter to capture multiple images, to reproduce each frame. One image is taken using a 'standard' exposure time and either one or three images are taken using very short exposure times depending on the camera type.


Visibility Enhancer is a new Sony technology that optimizes the brightness and the color reproduction of an image dynamically on a pixel-by-pixel basis while adapting to the scene. If an image consists of very bright areas and very dark areas, VE makes the entire image easy to see by stretching the contrast in both the backlit portions and the shadows.


When performing IP conversion, Sony incorporates a technology called Dynamic Frame Integration (DFI) in some of its interlaced scan CCD network cameras so that both moving objects and still objects are clearly reproduced while taking advantage of the relatively high sensitivity inherent in interlaced scanning CCDs. IR illuminators allow operation even in complete darkness (0 lx)* without being noticed by the human eye. It is very effective where the environment cannot be lightened, but requires clear images in the dark.
