D-LINK now shipping network camera with PAN/TILT/ZOOM and POE SUPPORT


Includes Expanded Surveillance Area, Motion Detection Triggered Alerts, Live Video Feed to Mobile Phone or PDA
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. — D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for consumer and business, today announced it is now shipping a full-featured network surveillance camera designed for whole-room monitoring of the home, office and small business, offering superior management over conventional closed-circuit television (CCTV) security cameras. The new network camera supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) for flexibility to install the camera where coverage is needed rather than where power outlets are available.

The D-Link® SecuriCam™ Pan/Tilt/Zoom Network Camera (DCS-5610) can be configured to record video to a local Network Area Storage (NAS) device such as the D-Link 2-Bay or 4-Bay Enclosures when motion is detected or it can be scheduled to record at certain times throughout the day. The IP-based DCS-5610 offers an auto-start motion detector that can be configured to send an email alert when triggered, and is capable of streaming live feeds to an Internet-ready mobile phone or PDA. The camera features 2.6x optical zoom, 4x digital zoom, SIP 2-way audio, and resolution up to 640x480 at 30 frames per second.

“The feature-rich DCS-5610 network camera provides efficiencies not found in conventional CCTV security cameras, offering remote monitoring, real-time alerts and PoE support,” said Chris Wong, Director of Product Management, D-Link Systems, Inc. “It represents a premiere digital surveillance solution with all of today’s most sought-after features, and includes our free D-ViewCam™ software that lets users manage up to 32 cameras, making it an ideal choice for the home, office or small business.”

The D-Link Pan/Tilt/Zoom Camera is the ideal whole room surveillance camera because it can be mounted on a ceiling or wall for maximum coverage. Additionally, D-Link offers the compatible IP Camera Outdoor Enclosure (DCS-70) to monitor and survey in harsh outdoor environments.

The DCS-5610 provides support for 3GPP Mobile Surveillance that allows the user to view a live video feed from a compatible Internet-ready mobile phone or PDA with a 3GPP player installed. This extends monitoring capability without requiring the use of a computer, allowing on-the-go monitoring of the camera’s video feed. It also includes 2-way audio with a built-in microphone and audio-out port that provides remote communication with anyone within close proximity to the camera.

The DCS-5610 is easily managed using a Web-based interface or with the included D-ViewCam 2.0 management software. D-ViewCam 2.0 management software can manage up to 32 network cameras, send e-mail alert notifications, set recording schedules, and trigger motion detection to record directly to a hard drive on a connected PC or network attached storage device. D-ViewCam 2.0 also allows users to upload a home or office floor plan and create a realistic layout of where the cameras are located, further simplifying the management process.

Offering optimal viewing quality, the DCS-5610 supports simultaneous MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG (MJPEG) to provide both high quality and bandwidth efficient compression formats. Motion JPEG delivers greater file integrity, making it ideal for detailed monitoring situations. MPEG-4 video utilizes compressed files, useful for extended recording periods or for use in low bandwidth networks.
