In the WDR section I think the vendor must be Dahua instead of Axis ;)

WDR Quality

The Axis N53AJ52 had strong WDR performance in our exterior mandoor scene. Below is an image of the FOV used.

A note - the new AI based algorithms really prove (or disprove) their mettle on 'non uniform' backgrounds. That is - the more varied the background is, the harder it gets. Grass, concrete or plywood floors are relatively easy. If the background is moving (e.g. vegetation) it is even harder.
