The D-Link DCS-6818 36x High Speed Dome Network Camera is a high-performance surveillance unit, ideal for business IP surveillance applications. The DCS-6818 employs Sony 1/4” EX-View CCD technology to deliver exceptional picture quality. High-performance technology provides real-time video compression in H.264 / MPEG4 and MJPEG formats.
Focusing the camera is painless since the pan and tilt speeds are proportional to the optical zoom ratio of the camera. When the camera zooms in, the panning speed is automatically slowed to improve camera tracking and controllability. PTZ presets allow the camera to monitor specified areas along predefined paths.
This dome camera apparatus is housed in a weatherproof enclosure (IP66 standard). A built-in heater and fan allows camera to operate in extreme environments at temperatures ranging from -40 to 122ºF (-40 to 50°C).
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.
The Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) function of a camera provides clear images even under backlit conditions where the intensity of illumination can vary significantly. This camera is recommended for use in high-contrast environments.
D-ViewCam is a software program that 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.
ONVIF is an open industry forum for the development of a global standard for the interface of IP based physical security products. ONVIF codifies the 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 Network Camera is ONVIF compliant and therefore compatible with many third party Video Management Software (VMS) solutions.
