Full HD WDR PoE Day/Night Fixed Network Camera



High Resolution Surveillance

The D-Link DCS-3716 is a high-end HD Day & Night Network Camera, equipped with a 1/2.8" 3 Megapixel WDR Progressive Scan CMOS sensor and a 3.1-8mm auto iris lens. The camera can capture Full HD video at resolutions of up to 1920 x 1080 (maximum 2048 x 1536) at frame rates up to 30 fps. Snapshots and video can be saved to a network drive, or to onboard storage through the built-in SD Card slot.

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) Applications

The Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) function provides properly exposed video even under backlit conditions where the intensity of illumination can vary significantly, making the DCS-3716 ideal for high-contrast environments such as such as lobbies, entryways and shipping docks.

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. Each streaming profile can be independently configured with its own resolution, frame rate and compression type. The DCS-3716 also supports full-time analog video out, useful for aiming & focusing the camera or for use with an existing public view monitor.

Flexible Connectivity

The DCS-3716 incorporates Power over Ethernet (PoE), which allows it to be easily installed in a variety of locations, even when no power outlet is nearby. The DCS-3716 also includes input and output ports that allow connectivity to external devices such as IR sensors, switches, and alarm relays. An RS-485 interface provides connectivity to an optional pan/tilt enclosure which effectively adds pan/tilt functionality to the DCS-3716.

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.

Easy to Configure and Operate

This network camera supports the Universal Plug-n-Play feature, which allows computers running on Windows XP/Vista/7 to automatically recognize the camera and add it to the network.

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.
