View-DR is a combination of Sony’s full-capture Wide-D technologies, the high-speed “Exmor” CMOS sensor, and Visibility Enhancer (VE) technology. The full-capture Wide-D technology uses an electronic shutter to capture multiple images and reproduce each frame. With the newly developed View-DR algorithm, all of the electrons converted from the captured light are fully used by the imager. As a result, View-DR nearly doubles the sensitivity that is offered by conventional Wide-D technologies.
In order to capture multiple HD resolution images at a very
high speed, the “Exmor” CMOS sensor is used because of
its high-speed readout characteristics. During the process
of combining multiple images, the Visibility Enhancer (VE)
provides a high level of chrominance and luminance. With
View-DR, the monitored images become very visible –
sometimes being even more visible than when viewed with
the naked eye.
