13/07/2017 - The Mx6 Camera Line Is Complete: Indoor Models With More Performance Now Also Available

Higher Performance And Greater Flexibility For Indoors

Langmeil, Germany, 13 July 2017 MOBOTIX has introduced the new indoor models c26, i26, p26 and v26, thereby completing the successful Mx6 6MP camera line. The new, higher performing processor delivers up to twice as many images per second as before – at the same resolution. The video data is simultaneously offered in three formats (MxPEG, MJPEG and H.264), as well as in a range of different resolutions. RTSP/multicast makes the Mx6 cameras more flexible. All of the models come standard with intelligent motion detection directly on the camera, and thereby offer more capacity for additional software applications.

More Power, Easily Integrated

As with the Mx6 outdoor cameras, now Mx6 indoor models are also available with a more powerful CPU as well as an H.264 encoder. The new processor architecture significantly increases the frame rate, which allows the cameras to do an even better job of capturing fast movements. Moreover, intelligent motion detection is integrated as a standard, and more capacity is available on the camera for additional software applications. The new Mx6 camera system is far more flexible and higher performing, thanks to RTSP/Multicast. The video stream can be displayed on multiple clients simultaneously without reducing the frame rate. Alongside the MxPEG video codec, which was specially developed for security applications, H.264 is available for the first time, ensuring compatibility with the industry standard. Depending on requirements, the focus can be set on high image quality with MxPEG, or the industry standard for video transmission and camera integration can be used. Moreover, Mx6 cameras also offer basic functions in keeping with ONVIF *, a global open interface standard. In this way, the new camera system opens up far more application and integration options for our partners and end customers. Regular software updates ensure that the performance of the Mx6 range continually improves, which in turn guarantees a maximum return on investment.

"We will continue to remain true to our decentralized concept – storing maximum intelligence in a camera – and thereby offer solutions that go above and beyond traditional applications. At the same time, we are open to generally used technologies such as H.264 and participation in standard forums such as ONVIF. We do not consider these two parts of our approach to be in conflict with each other; instead, they help our range prepare for the future and stay solution-oriented," explains MOBOTIX CTO Dr. Oliver Gabel.

Flexibly Protect Interior Spaces

With a diameter of only 12 centimeters and a weight of approximately 200 grams, the c26 is the smallest and lightest MOBOTIX 360° camera yet for fast ceiling mounting in suspended ceilings. The i26 is ideally suited for corresponding wall mounting, as it is just as compact and discreet. Thanks to its tilt angle of 15°, it provides a complete overview of the room and can thereby replace up to four conventional cameras. The p26 provides maximum flexibility during installation thanks to its manual swivel and tilt functions, and can also completely secure an entire room when it is installed in a corner area, thanks to its 90° lens. The v26 is the first vandalism indoor camera to also offer all MOBOTIX functions. Alongside the standard lenses, an on-wall audio set and suitable vandalism sets are available for optimum protection. All of the indoor models are fitted with 6-megapixel Moonlight sensors and deliver sharp, richly detailed videos, even under poor light conditions (>1 Lux).

27/03/2017 - Mx6 Dual Cameras Open Up New Opportunities

Intelligent, Powerful And Flexible: The Mx6 Camera Line Is The Most Powerful 6MP MOBOTIX Camera System And The First To Support The H.264/ONVIF* Industry Standard.

Langmeil, Germany, 27 March 2017. MOBOTIX is starting series production of their new Mx6 6MP camera line with the outdoor dual cameras M16, D16, S16 and V16. In terms of their outer appearance, these models look exactly the same as the x15 cameras (which are still available); all the innovations in these new cameras have been made to the mainboard and camera software.

Higher-performing And More Intelligent

Mx6 cameras use a new, more powerful CPU that delivers up to twice as many images per second – at the same resolution. For example, they deliver up to 34 frames per second in full HD. This allows for even better capture of quick movements. The new camera line is not only faster, but also has more capacity for software applications such as 3D motion analysis and license plate capture in the camera. Regular software updates ensure that the performance of the intelligent camera system continually improves. This makes the Mx6 camera system a smart investment.

Sharp Images In MxPEG And H.264

Mx6 cameras simultaneously deliver video data in up to three different formats: MxPEG, MJPEG and, for the first time, H.264. This allows MOBOTIX users to choose the right codec for their application; for example, they can use MxPEG to fulfill requirements for high image quality or use H.264 to achieve compatibility with the industry standard. Moreover, Mx6 cameras also offer basic functions in keeping with ONVIF, a global open interface standard. The next firmware update will achieve complete ONVIF compatibility (www.onvif.org). The new Mx6 camera system is far more flexible and higher performing, thanks to RTSP/Multicast. Multicast enables simultaneous camera access for any number of users without reducing the frame rate. "The new camera system with H.264/ONVIF opens up new application and integration options for our partners and end customers. The Mx6 system makes much of what makes MOBOTIX unique even better. The new dual core processor architecture has allowed us to achieve the most processing power that a MOBOTIX camera system has ever had, the highest MOBOTIX frame rate, intelligent 3D motion detection and even more capacity for software applications on the camera," explains MOBOTIX CTO Dr. Oliver Gabel.

Step-by-step Introduction Of The New Camera Line

The first step will be to introduce the dual camera models D16, M16, S16 and V16, which offer the greatest scope of functionality and, thanks to their robust design, are particularly well suited for use outdoors. A modular system with various sensor and lens options allows the MOBOTIX dual cameras to be customized.

The standard version of the M16 AllroundDual features two light-sensitive sensor modules to deliver sharp color videos and high-contrast black and white videos, even in poor light conditions. The electronic switching between the day and night systems is automatic (with no moving parts) and reliable at any temperature and in any weather. The M16 Thermal is equipped with a high-performance thermal image sensor that detects moving objects, even in total darkness. A second image sensor module can be added at any time to reliably identify objects, even in poor lighting. The thermal radiometry (TR) function enables temperature events to be initiated automatically to detect fire or heat sources. MOBOTIX thermal cameras also offer the thermal overlay function to identify so-called "hotspots" in a visible image. Thanks to the unique combination of a modular double-sensor and DualFlex technologies, the S16 DualFlex covers two areas and remains virtually invisible. The S16 is used wherever customized solutions and installation methods are required, where standard cameras are pushed to their limits. The D16 is a DualDome camera with two image sensors that are suitable for a wide range of applications, thanks to the large number of viewing options. It is available in a completely modular version as a Standard DualDome, a 180° version with an extra-wide panorama view or as a day/night model. As a next step, MOBOTIX plans to introduce the single lens model.

Intelligent Prevention Is The Future

Decentralized system architecture also entails additional advantages for the new Mx6 dual cameras: Alongside higher image quality, robustness and reliability, intelligent MOBOTIX cameras enable reliable alarm management. The cameras not only deliver sharp images, but also analyze the collected data, recognize hazards, automatically trigger actions to protect against risks and prevent financial loss through theft, vandalism or fire.
