A High-Performance Surveillance Solution
The DCS-5605 iis a high performance camera for professional surveillance and remote monitoring. This network camera features motorized pan, tilt, and optical/digitalzoom for ultimate versatility. The 10x optical zoom lens delivers the level of detail necessaryto identify faces, license plate numbers, and other important details that are difficult to clearly distinguish using digital zoom alone. In addition, the DCS-5635 is equipped with Wireless N. The built-in antennas enable the camera to have versatile placement in more places without the hassle of additional wires.

Advanced Video Encoding
To maximize bandwidth efficiency and improve image quality, the DCS-5605 offers real-time video compression in H.264, MJPEG, and MPEG-4 formats. The H.264 codec can reduce the size of a video stream by up to 80% compared to Motion JPEG (MJPEG). Thus, less network bandwidth and storage space is required.

Surveillance on the Go
The DCS-5605 supports 3GPP mobile surveillance1. A live feed from the camera can be accessed on a 3G cellular network using a compatible phone, PDA or mobile device capable of RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) streaming. This enables you to monitor your home or office space in real time even when you are on the go.

Easy to Install and Simple to Manage
The DCS-5605 can be mounted on a flat surface or with a metal wall mount. Manage and monitor up to 32 cameras using the D-Link D-ViewCam software.
