LT Security posted this on May 5, 2014

Wide dynamic range (WDR) describes an attribute of an imaging system that can record greater scene details, from shadows to highlights than normal. Having "wide dynamic range" is a relative term that can describe both the capability of a sensor or other imaging system, as well as the contents of an image file containing such data. The amount of dynamic range in an image which would qualify as "wide" changes over time as new systems are developed.
