The D-Link DCS-6517 5 Megapixel H.265 Outdoor Dome Network Camera is a high definition
professional surveillance and security solution suitable for small, medium, and large enterprises.
The camera features a progressive scan CMOS sensor and support for H.265 to deliver truly
superior quality video in all conditions. Power over Ethernet (PoE) and a rugged, weatherproof
design makes this camera extremely reliable and ideal for deployment in any surveillance
Built for the Outdoors
Specifically designed for outdoor environments, the DCS-6517 is IP67 certified – one of the
toughest Ingress Protection (IP) ratings that is given to products tested to protect against dust
and long-term water immersion. A sunshield provides added protection against the elements
while blocking out glare, and various mounting options gives installers maximum flexibility
for any location. Most importantly, support for Power over Ethernet (PoE) provides power and
network connectivity via a single cable – making the DCS-6517 a truly versatile solution that
can be used in a wide range of applications.
Advanced Monitoring with H.265 Support
In low-light situations, the IR cut filter automatically slides out of the way to use all available
light. The DCS-6517 also has built-in smart IR LED illuminators with a 65 ft. range, allowing
the camera to keep watch even in complete darkness. To maximize bandwidth efficiency and
improve image quality, the DCS-6517 provides real-time video compression using the H.265
and MJPEG codecs. The H.265 codec, or High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), uses the latest
compression algorithms to save even more space than H.264, for better visual quality and
recording performance. These features work together to give you a reliable surveillance camera
capable of monitoring an area 24 hours a day – no matter the environment or the application.
Video Management Software
The DCS-6517 5 Megapixel H.265 Outdoor Dome Network Camera includes D-ViewCam, a complete surveillance software package that enables you to view, manage, and record from up to 32 cameras on a single computer in a central location. Recordings and e-mail alerts can be triggered through motion detection or events triggered by digital input devices, keeping administrators informed of any unusual activity.
The DCS-6517 has a built-in 802.3af compliant PoE module that simplifies installation by providing power and networking connectivity with a single cable, reducing the need to drill holes or lay additional cabling.
