3 Megapixel Vigilance PoE Dome Camera


The D-Link DCS-4603 camera is a high-definition professional surveillance and security solution suitable for small, medium, and large enterprises. The camera uses a high-sensitivity 1/3” 3 megapixel progressive scan CMOS sensor with onboard WDR image enhancement to deliver truly superior quality video in all conditions. The all-in-one design makes this camera extremely reliable and ideal for deployment in surveillance applications without the need for additional accessories.
High-Quality Streaming & Recording
To maximize bandwidth efficiency and improve image capture, the DCS-4603 supports real-time video compression using the H.264 and MJPEG codecs, providing the highest quality and video recording possible. Separate profiles for simultaneous video streaming and recording allows for a wide variety of security applications, such as monitoring public areas to detect incidents and to coordinate responses, enforcing access control to restricted areas, deterring criminal activity, or monitoring inventory.
Flexible Connectivity
The DCS-4603 has a built-in 802.3af-compliant PoE module that simplifies installation by providing power and networking connectivity over a single cable, reducing the need to install additional cabling. Optional mounting hardware is also available for applications and environments that require special mounts for the most effective surveillance of any area.
Versatile Monitoring Options
The DCS-4603’s Wide Dynamic Range image enhancement gives you improved image quality in
environments with uneven or difficult lighting, so you can identify subjects that are backlit or
in brightly lit areas. In low-light situations, the IR-cut filter automatically slides out of the way to use all available light. The DCS-4603 also has built-in IR LED illuminators with a 10-meter range, allowing the camera to keep watch even in complete darkness. These features work together to provide a reliable surveillance camera capable of monitoring an area 24 hours a day.
Robust Management Software
The DCS-4603 camera includes D-ViewCam, a complete surveillance software package that enables you to view, manage, and record from up to 32 cameras on a single computer in a central location. Recordings and e-mail alerts can be triggered through motion detection or events triggered by digital input devices, keeping administrators informed of any unusual activity.
