Press release date: Jul 23, 2014

Surveillance Cameras Offer Professional Quality, Advanced Features and Small Form Factors

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., – D-Link today introduced two new IP cameras - a two megapixel Full HD Indoor Pan/Tilt Dome Camera (DCS-5615) and a one megapixel HD Outdoor Dome Camera with Color Night Vision (DCS-6315), both delivering high definition resolution and a full suite of image and management features designed to meet a range of customer surveillance needs.

"Dome cameras continue to be the most popular form factor in the surveillance market," said Vance Kozik, director of marketing for IP Surveillance, D-Link Systems, Inc. "The introduction of these two new IP cameras expands the range of offerings and performance capabilities available with D-Link's line-up of dome cameras, offering high definition video and an advanced feature set within a smaller form factor for a great overall value."

Boasting 1920 x 1080 resolution, the DCS-5615 features a motorized pan/tilt mechanism and wide angle lens within a compact indoor dome. Well suited for small business applications where remote viewing requires the ability to pan and tilt the camera, the DCS-5615 is an attractively priced solution in a compact form factor that blends well into any indoor environment. An integrated microphone allows users to optionally listen and record audio in addition to video(1).

The DCS-6315 rugged outdoor network camera offers 1280 x 720 resolution with enhanced imaging sensitivity, allowing users to see greater detail in low light while remaining in color. For very low light or completely dark environments, the DCS-6315 can operate in black and white mode and illuminate the scene with its built-in infrared LED illuminators.

For added flexibility, both cameras include an integrated microSD card slot for local "in camera" recording of event-triggered video clips and snapshots for later review using a web browser. Also featured in both cameras is H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG compression, multiple independent streaming profiles and ONVIF compliance. With the included D-ViewCam™ software, users can also view, manage and record up to 32 cameras on a single computer in a central location, as well as receive e-mail alerts if motion or digital input devices are detected.
