High Resolution Surveillance

The D-Link® 3 Megapixel Day & Night Network Camera (DCS-3716) is a high-end megapixel network camera equipped with a Sony Exmor 1/2.8”, 3 Megapixel WDR Progressive Scan CMOS sensor, and a 3.1- 8 mm DC auto iris lens. The DCS-3716 captures video in both dark and light environments, or even subjects shot against a backlight by neutralizing imperfect lighting and generating a realistic image. In addition, the removable IR-cut filter for day/night functionality provides clear detail and high quality video at any point during the day or night. The DCS-3716 incorporates Power over Ethernet (PoE) which allows for easy installation in a variety of locations, an SD card slot for local video recording, and ePTZ for virtual Pan/Tilt/Zoom operation.

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) Applications

The Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) function provides clear images even under backlit conditions where the intensity of illumination can vary significantly, making the DCS- 3716 perfect for extreme high-contrast environments. For example, when placed indoors, the DCS-3716 adjusts itself to intense sunlight that may be streaming in through windows in the background. This makes it an ideal solution for lobbies, retail stores and warehouse shipping bays.

Flexible Connectivity

The DCS-3716 includes input and output ports allowing connectivity to external devices such as IR sensors, switches, and alarm relays. It also comes with an RS-485 interface, providing connectivity to an optional pan/ til enclosure which effectively adds pan/tilt functionality to the DCS-3716. An additional 12V interface provides power for an optional LED illuminator.

D-ViewCam™ for Management

The included D-ViewCam™ IP camera surveillance software is a comprehensive surveillance system designed to centrally manage multiple IP cameras. Supporting up to 32 IP cameras, D-ViewCam™ is compatible with all current D-Link IP cameras and offers digital monitoring and recording capabilities of video, audio, and events for various security applications. The D-ViewCam™ software is included free of charge with the DCS-3716.

Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF)

ONVIF is an open industry forum for the development of a global standard for the interface of IP based physical security products. ONVIF identifies a standard for how IP products within video surveillance and other physical security areas can communicate with each other ensuring interoperability between products regardless of brand. The DCS-3716 is ONVIF-Compliant and therefore compatible with many third party Video Management Software (VMS) solutions.

Multiple Video Streams

The DCS-3716 supports simultaneous streaming of H.264, MPEG-4, and MJPEG video to provide both high-quality and bandwidth-efficient compression formats. MJPEG delivers excellent file integrity, ideal for situations which require high image detail. H.264 and MPEG-4 consumes less bandwidth and storage, useful for megapixel video, extended recording or for use in low-bandwidth networks.
