The D-Link DCS-7517 5 Megapixel Varifocal Outdoor Network Camera is a high definition professional surveillance and security solution. The camera uses a 5 megapixel progressive scan CMOS sensor with a motorized varifocal lens and on-board WDR image enhancement, to deliver truly superior quality video in all conditions.
To maximize bandwidth efficiency and improve image quality, the DCS-7517 provides real-time video compression using the H.264 and MJPEG codecs, and supports three separate profiles for simultaneous video streaming and recording. This versatility enables various security applications, such as monitoring public areas to detect incidents and to coordinate responses, enforcing access control to restricted areas, deterring criminal activity, or monitoring inventory.
The DCS-7517's digital Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) video enhancement gives you improved image quality in environments with uneven or difficult lighting, so you can identify subjects that are backlit or in brightly-lit areas. In low-light situations, the IR cut filter automatically slides out of the way to use all available light. The DCS-7517 also has built-in IR LED illuminators with a 90 foot range, allowing the camera to keep watch even in complete darkness. These features work together to give you a reliable surveillance camera capable of monitoring an area 24 hours a day.
The DCS-7517 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.
