Full HD Outdoor Speed Dome IP Camera



The DCS-6915 20x Full HD High Speed Dome Network Camera is a high-definition professional surveillance and security solution suitable for small, medium, and large enterprises. The DCS-6915 features a 3 megapixel sensor capable of Full HD 1080P resolution, allowing for very clear surveillance footage to be taken. The powerful 20x optical zoom and 8X digital zoom ensure that you can see even the smallest details with ease.

Proportional Pan, Tilt, and Zoom Speeds

Proportional pan and tilt make it easy to precisely adjust the camera’s view. When the camera zooms in, the panning speed is automatically slowed to improve camera tracking and control. PTZ presets allow the camera to monitor specified areas along predefined paths.

Built for Tough Environments

Specially designed for use in challenging environments the DCS-6915 has a toughened metal, industry-certified IK10 (vandalproof) and IP66 (weatherproof) housing. This means that it is able to withstand sudden high impacts, as well as adverse weather conditions. Additionally, the DCS-6915 features a built-in heater and fan which enable the camera to operate in extreme environments at temperatures ranging from -40° to 122 °F (-40° to 50 °C).

Wide Dynamic Range

IP surveillance cameras are often installed in areas with consistent lighting, like offices, banks or stores. This makes it easy to set exposure levels for optimal image quality. At other times, surveillance personnel are not so lucky. Doorways, glass walls or other areas that are exposed to direct or varying sunlight can create backlit or high contrast scenes. In such conditions, detail is lost in bright areas because of over-exposure and in dark areas because of low light. Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology overcomes these conditions by merging two images, one with a short exposure time to capture detail in the brighter parts of the image, and one with a longer exposure time to reveal detail in the darker areas. The resulting WDR image provides natural, balanced detail – a must in critical surveillance applications with tricky lighting conditions.

Mechanical IR Filter for True Day & Night Operation

The IR Cut Filter can be manually applied, or set to automatically adjust based on lighting conditions. This feature enables the camera to capture crisp color images during the daytime, and grayscale images in low-light.

Robust Management Software

The included D-ViewCam camera management software allows you to view up to 32 cameras on a single computer screen from a central location. Motion detection and digital input devices trigger automated e-mail alerts that can instantly inform administrators of unusual activities.

Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF)

ONVIF is an open industry forum for the development of a global standard forthe interface of IP based physical security products. ONVIF identifies a standardfor how IP products within video surveillance and other physical security areascan communicate with each other ensuring interoperability between productsregardless of brand. The DCS-6915 is ONVIF compliant and therefore compatiblewith many third party Video Management Software (VMS) solutions.
