The D-Link DCS-3716 is a high-end Full HD Day & Night WDR Network Camera, equipped with a 1/2.8” 3 Megapixel WDR Progressive Scan CMOS sensor and a 3.1-8.0 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 hour of the day. The DCS-3716 incorporates Power over Ethernet (PoE) and an SD card slot, allowing it to be easily installed in a variety of locations.
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 produce a small file size, useful for extended recording or for use in low-bandwidth networks. Additionally, the DCS-3716 supports multicast H.264 MPEG-4 streaming, allowing users to view the camera feed by subscribing to a multicast IP address on the network.
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/tilt enclosure which effectively adds pan/tilt functionality to the DCS-3716. An additional 12 V interface provides power for an optional LED illuminator.
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 will adjust itself to the intense sunlight that may be streaming in through a nearby window. This makes it an ideal solution for security applications.
Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) compliant
The Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) is standards relating to open IP video networking. The DCS-3716 is ONVIF compliant and therefore interoperable with other manufacturer’s products on the same network such as cameras, storage systems, video analytics products and Video Management Systems.
