  • High Resolution Surveillance

    The D-Link® 3 Megapixel Day & Night Network Camera (DCS-3716) is a high-end megapixel network camera equipped with a Sony Exmor 1/2.8”, 3 Megapixel WDR Progressive Scan CMOS sensor, and a 3.1- 8 mm DC auto iris lens. The DCS-3716 captures video in both dark and light environments, or even subjects shot against a backlight by neutralizing imperfect lighting and generating a realistic image. In addition, the removable IR-cut filter for day/night functionality provides clear detail and high quality video at any point during the day or night. The DCS-3716 incorporates Power over Ethernet (PoE) which allows for easy installation in a variety of locations, an SD card slot for local video recording, and ePTZ for virtual Pan/Tilt/ Zoom operation.
  • Product Highlights

    • 3 Megapixel Resolution- Sony image sensor provides up to 9 times higher resolution than the best analog CCTV camera
    • Wide Dynamic Range- Wide Dynamic Range technology neutralizes imperfect lighting, providing clear images with the right amount of contrast even when a subject is backlit
    • Triple Codec Streaming- Real-time video compression with H.264, MPEG-4, and M-JPEG codecs


  • Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) Applications

    The Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) function provides clear images even under backlit conditions where the intensity of illumination can vary significantly, making the DCS- 3716
    perfect for extreme high-contrast environments. For example, when placed indoors, the
    DCS-3716 adjusts itself to intense sunlight that may be streaming in through windows in the background. This makes it an ideal solution for lobbies, retail stores and warehouse shipping bays.
  • Flexible Connectivity

    The DCS-3716 includes input and output ports allowing connectivity to external devices such as IR sensors, switches, and alarm relays. It also comes with an RS-485 interface, providing connectivity to an optional pan/ til enclosure which effectively adds pan/tilt functionalityto the DCS-3716. An additional 12V interface provides power for an optional LED illuminator.

    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. MJPEG delivers excellent file integrity, ideal for situations which require high image detail. H.264 and MPEG-4 consumes less bandwidth and storage, useful for megapixel video, extended recording or for use in low-bandwidth networks. Additionally, the DCS-3716 supports multicast H.264/MPEG-4 streaming, allowing users to view the camera feed by subscribing to a multicast IP address on the network, eliminating redundant bandwidth consumption.
  • 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.
  • 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.
