M16 Wins Golden PROTECTOR Award

26 July 2017


Just a few weeks after the release of the new Mx6 camera line, the M16 has landed on the winner’s podium. The MOBOTIX outdoor camera won the golden PROTECTOR award in the “Video surveillance” category at this year’s SecurityExpo in Munich, Germany. The camera won out over 30 other renowned security solutions competing in this category. The M16 gained the most votes from readers of the PROTECTOR & WIK trade journal and users of the sicherheit.info online portal - a key security site in Germany.

The M16 6MP dual-lens camera features two optical sensor modules that allow the camera to generate sharp color videos and high-contrast B/W 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. Featuring a new, higher performing processor delivers up to twice as many images per second than previous models at the same resolution. The video data is simultaneously offered in three formats: MxPEG, MJPEG and H.264. Moreover, as with all MOBOTIX Mx6 models, the M16 comes standard with intelligent motion analysis integrated in the camera and offers already more capacity for additional future software applications.

"We are proud to have been honored with the golden PROTECTOR award, and would like to express our heartfelt thanks for the readers’ votes," says Dr. Tristan Haage, CSO of MOBOTIX AG. "Our new Mx6 camera line makes more possible. It delivers more than just sharp images – it also offers users the greatest possible flexibility and supports them in averting dangers before they arise. We are pleased with the positive feedback these cameras have received. This confirms that we are continuing to act as a pioneer in the field of intelligent IP video cameras, paving the way for the future."

The trade journal PROTECTOR & WIK magazine and sicherheit.info have presented an award for security technology for the fifth time. The three best products in each of the four categories of video surveillance, access control, alarm technologies and smart home security were awarded a gold, silver and a bronze PROTECTOR, respectively.
