full automatic white balance (FAW)

Automatic white balance is used to adjust video cameras and camcorders to the color temperatures of the lighting, which are completely different in tungsten light

and daylight. There are different white balance methods: manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic white balance. In the case of fully automatic white balance (FAW), the brightest image detail is detected and the white balance is adjusted accordingly. The rest of the color space is adjusted to the white balance value. If the lighting or daylight changes, the FAW process adjusts the white balance to the changed lighting conditions.
