Back Light Compensation BLC
(Key Camera Specification)

Back Light Compensation BLC used in CCD security cameras will automatically bring more detail to darker areas of an image when bright light shining from behind obscures it. The electronic shutter of the camera basically adjusts its exposure to try to allow for more light to be allowed in the darker areas. Most of your better security cameras will have this feature available that you can turn on or off.
