The DCS-6815 High Speed 18x High Speed Dome Network Camera is a professional outdoor IP surveillance solution which connects to your network to provide high-quality live video over the Internet. The inconspicuous dome enclosure can be mounted in a variety of positions based on your needs.
Day & night powerful surveillance
Equipped with Sony’s proprietary EX-View technology, the camera’s sensor shows a drastically improved light sensitivity, so that it can deliver excellent image quality and levels of detail. In addition, the camera includes a built-in Infrared Cut Removable (ICR) filter, which allows the camera to capture crisp colour images during the daytime, and clear grayscale images in low-light. It also includes Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology, which provides clear images with a good level of detail even when the camera is hit with strong backlight, for example when facing intense sunlight that may be streaming in through a nearby window.
Effective monitoring with Pan, Tilt, and Zoom (PTZ) functions
The pan function provides a 360° range of motion. Pan and tilt speeds are proportional to the optical zoom ratio of the camera, so when the camera zooms in, the panning speed is automatically slowed to improve camera tracking and controllability. You can program the camera to automatically sweep areas of interest by defining routes with specific pan, tilt, zoom and focus features.
The camera is housed in an IP66 certified weatherproof casing, which protects it against rain and dust. A built-in heater and fan allows the camera to operate in extreme environments at temperatures ranging from -40°C to 50°C.
Recording & storage
Embedded with a powerful SoC (System-on-Chip), the camera provides high-quality, real-time video compression in MPEG-4 or Motion JPEG formats.
You can record directly onto an FTP server located off-site or a Network Video Recorder (NVR), such as D-Link’s DNS-722-4 or DNS-726-4. These devices can control multiple cameras and support RAID-1 for backup of the video footage.
A complete surveillance solution
The camera provides eight alarm inputs and one alarm output to connect alarm devices. With this function, alarm systems distributed across an area to monitor can initiate swift camera movements to catch event images, a cost-effective alternative to multiple fixed cameras overseeing the same area.
Snapshots may be sent via e-mail, based on motion detection or D/I signal.
With the free D-ViewCam software included, up to 32 cameras may be monitored on a single computer screen at one central location.
