VIVOTEK's FD8173-H network camera features a 3-Megapixel WDR CMOS sensor to cope with challenging lighting conditions. The WDR Pro feature allows the camera to capture both the dark and bright areas of an image and combine the differences to generate a highly realistic representation of the original scene. This feature enables the camera to provide video quality very close to the capabilities of the human eye. The FD8173-H can be deployed widely in high contrast environments such as lobby entrances, hotel alleys and more. The P-iris lens controls the iris with extreme precision; with its built-in stepper motor, it maintains the iris opening at an optimal level at all times, resulting in superior image clarity and depth of field.
