Hi-Res Digital Camera

I am getting ready to order a Transit Cargo Van (Hi Roof, EL). My understanding is that the base model van comes with a back-up camera, which provides a B&W display on the small radio screen.
What does the Hi-Resolution Digital Camera do? It's an option that requires upgrading the basic radio to SYNC 4, 12" screen, and costs $930. Would it provide a virtual rear view on the 12" screen as one is driving? IF anyone has it and can describe what the Hi-res camera does, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks.
So the Hi-Res camera alone (not the 360-degree cameras) does not provide full-time virtual rear view, such as when driving forward? Only in reverse, it provides a split screen?

Thank you all for confirming what the Hi-Res Digital Camera package does, and for the info on the Virtual Rearview Mirror, which I see as on option in the 2023 model. It was offered earlier in European models of Transit and its called "Smart Mirror". Two versions: one for vans with rear windows and one for vans without rear windows. Both cost the same (about $550).


I may opt for an after-market digital mirror (dash cam). Now they can display both and front and rear views constantly AND record, even when the vehicle is parked. Depending on resolution (1080P vs 4k), they range in price from $100 to $250.
