automatic white balance (video) (AWB)
Automatic White Balance(AWB) is a process that automatically adjusts video cameras and camcorders to lighting conditions.
In automatic white balance, the AWB process searches for the brightest area of the image and takes this as the white balance value. The rest of the color space is adjusted to this white balance value. In contrast to the fully automatic white balance, the Full Automatic White Balance( FAW), the white balance is not adjusted during the exposure.
