D-Link (Austin, TX) offers two new 5-Megapixel day/night IP cameras. The indoor/outdoor dome (DCS- 6517) and indoor/outdoor bullet (DCS-7517) support 2560x1920 resolution and digital wide dynamic range (WDR) image enhancement. Both cameras provide realtime video compression using the H.264 and MJPEG codecs.

Three separate profiles can be simultaneously video-streamed and recorded. The cameras’ WDR video enhancement provides improved image quality in environments with uneven or difficult lighting. In low-light situations, the IR cut filter automatically slides out of the way to use all available light.

Both cameras also have built-in IR LED illuminators, allowing the cameras to keep watch even in complete darkness. The products use rugged IP66-rated weatherproof housings, along with heating and cooling capabilities, to ensure reliable operation from -40 °F to 122 °F.
