11/06/2015 - MOBOTIX AG Doubles Its Previous Year‘s EBIT

Langmeil, June 11, 2015. The first half of the 2014/15 financial year of MOBOTIX AG saw a very large number of product innovations. Technologically, the 5-Megapixel cameras were replaced with highly light-sensitive 6-Megapixel Moonlight systems, which are around 100 times more light-sensitive than the 3-Megapixel cameras that were still being sold until a year ago. The Moonlight systems give MOBOTIX a significant competitive advantage in the market, even though the process of switching all camera models to this new technology is not due to be completed until the third quarter of the year.

The completely redeveloped and extremely user-friendly video management software was not launched in the first half of the year as originally planned. However, the beta version, which is already available to 2,000 registered users, is being described as a 'game changer' at all international presentations.

The reorganization of the sales function and the market launch of new products in February 2015 enabled MOBOTIX AG to raise revenue in the second quarter by 30 percent compared with the first quarter of the financial year. The increase in revenue and the growth resulting from the technological switch to the new 6-Megapixel Moonlight cameras did not materialize until the second quarter, which meant that the revenue effect was slightly diluted for the reporting period as a whole. Nonetheless, total operating output rose by 4.7 percent to EUR 41.5 million in the first half of the financial year (prior year: EUR 39.6 million). March 2015 saw the highest revenue of any month in the Company's history.

At EUR 4.5 million, EBIT for the first half of the year is already twice as high as for the entire previous financial year (EUR 2.3 million). Due to the high level of demand – and despite the change in technology – inventories were around 6.4 percent lower than at the end of 2013/14 (EUR 10.9 million, compared with EUR 11.6 million as of September 30, 2014). At EUR 24.9 million (September 30, 2014: EUR 22.4 million), receivables and bank balances were significantly higher than the total liabilities of EUR 10.9 million (September 30, 2014: EUR 9.9 million).

There was a successful outcome to patent disputes in the US, and we were able to have several US patents of the plaintiffs revoked as a deterrent against any other potential patent trolls. The acquisition of our competitors Axis and Milestone by the Japanese camera manufacturer Canon at very high business valuations and inquiries in this respect during the reporting period indicate substantial consolidation in the video security market.

09/12/2014 - MOBOTIX Elects Works Council For The First Time

Winnweiler/Langmeil, December 9, 2014. The Management of MOBOTIX AG in Langmeil welcomes the employees' wish to elect a works council for the first time. The works meeting to elect an election committee will take place on Friday, December 19, 2014 at the company headquarters.

"A works council offers a wide range of advantages for a company of our size because this way agreements can be made more efficiently than in one-in-one meetings with hundreds of employees. Moreover, after 15 years MOBOTIX has reached a size of company in which a council can contribute to the corporate culture better than even the best and most employee-oriented HR department actively can. It is a proven means to facilitate communication between the employees and the Management," says Klaus Gesmann, CEO of MOBOTIX AG.

MOBOTIX AG already grants its employees many advantages. In addition to the salary, for example, a monthly child benefit of € 50 per child, a Christmas bonus for each child in the amount of € 250 and monthly travel money are already being paid. Additionally, MOBOTIX has given each employee a set of winter tires several times. Meals and drinks are free-of-charge for the employees at the company‘s own canteen. In the company fitness and sports center, which is led by two physiotherapists, employees are free to use various athletic equipment and engage in different sports activities. In addition to medical offerings, such as eye examinations and workout for the back, employees also have the option of a free massage per month or in case of acute need, even more often. Health plays the biggest role around the PC workstation.

The Management looks forward to numerous applications and active participation of many positive and committed employees whose motivation is the well-being of their colleagues and not their own reputation or ideology. "We are looking forward to a committed and constructive collaboration with the works council," concludes Klaus Gesmann.

04/11/2014 - MOBOTIX Corp. Continues To Prevail In Patent Dispute: USPTO Cancels Three Patents

New York, November 04, 2014. MOBOTIX Corp. was once again successful in a patent dispute with San Antonio, Texas-based e-Watch Inc. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) granted MOBOTIX Corp.’s request and determined that all challenged claims of U.S. Pat. Nos. 7,023,913, 7,228,429 and 7,733,371 are not patentable.

MOBOTIX Corp.’s success story in the patent dispute against e-Watch Inc. continues. In August 2014, the USPTO had determined that U.S. Pat. No. 6,970,183 is not patentable. Shortly after this decision, a  district court in Texas dismissed the patent infringement lawsuit filed by e-Watch Inc. against MOBOTIX Corp. Now three more patents owned by e-Watch Inc. have been successfully challenged by requesting inter partes review at the USPTO.

"Although the three decisions had no relevance to the patent infringement lawsuit any more, it was important for us to carry on with the review proceedings at the USPTO. We have been a successful pioneer in the IP video surveillance market for more than 15 years, and – using documentation on the MOBOTIX camera model M1 published at the CeBIT trade fair in Hanover, Germany, in 2000, as well as third-party documents found through extensive prior art search – have shown that the patents-in-suit are invalid as they claim inventions that were already known well before the filing of the patents-in-suit," explains Keith Jernigan, General Manager at MOBOTIX Corp.

"We are very pleased with our continued success in the patent dispute with e­-Watch Inc. All challenged claims of all four patents have been determined unpatentable and will be canceled. Requesting inter partes review of the patents has proven to be effective and we will follow the same approach in the future to counter patent infringement lawsuits," says Keith Jernigan explaining the company’s corporate strategy.

24/09/2014 - MOBOTIX Presents New IP Video Solutions At Security 2014

Langmeil, Germany - September 24, 2014. At this year’s security in Essen, MOBOTIX presents a new compact sized Hemispheric camera, demonstrates its recent remote station for the IP video door intercom and introduces new software developments. The MOBOTIX technology stand is located at booth 408, Hall 1.0.

"Important highlights at the MOBOTIX stand this year will include previews of the MxMultiViewer, our new video management software, the MxDisplay management station and the all new i25 Hemispheric camera," said Dr. Ralf Hinkel, MOBOTIX’ founder.

i25 - a new compact sized Hemispheric camera

The revolutionary Q25M has given birth to a brand new hemispheric camera, which is nearly half the size. The new indoor camera is a fully featured device and built on the 5MP hardware platform. "We believe customers will love the i25 because it offers many of the same features found within the Q25, but at a much lower price point," said Oliver Gabel, MOBOTIX’ Chief Technology Officer.

The wall mountable i25 captures an entire room with stunning 180˚ wall-to-wall view, without any blind spots. As with all MOBOTIX Hemispheric devices, the virtual PTZ on the live and recorded images is performed by the i25 camera without requiring an additional computer or software.

Available in both Day (color) and Night (B&W) models the i25 caters to the most challenging lighting conditions and a wide range of indoor surveillance applications.

MxMultiViewer – intuitive video management software

The MxMultiViewer video management software is a completely new development for PC, Mac and Linux systems that focuses on ensuring simple and intuitive use. Full screen display at a single mouse click, support for several screens and a transparent view of events and alarm messages are just some of the many advantages of the new software. Particularly outstanding is the automatic configuration of the extensive MxMultiViewer. All MOBOTIX components in a network are detected and pre-installed automatically. Thus, a complete network of cameras and door intercoms can be brought into use in just a few minutes, without a browser or additional software - free of charge, of course, from MOBOTIX.

MxDisplay – building automation server with touchscreen display

The MxDisplay is the fixed remote station for the IP video door intercom and stands out, in particular, for its intuitive and easy use. With only a few swipes, the user can call up, for example, an overview of the cameras in the building and the most recent video messages from the door intercom or generate a new access transponder for a guest. No matter which menu the user is in, a tap on the key icon immediately displays the live image of the door intercom. Keeping the button pressed a while longer will open the door. If necessary, this can be secured further using a PIN or transponder. The MxDisplay can be integrated flush with the wall and is available in black or white.

Another advantage of the MxDisplay is that it can be operated wirelessly. It can also be used as a base station for other displays in the building. Smart phones and computers can be used to log into the display via the network or integrated Wi-Fi in order to use all the functions in the same manner. A ringing at the doorbell is then forwarded to the smartphone or the workstation. Thanks to the Wi-Fi Access Point function, the MxDisplay creates Internet access for these smart phones and computers, which makes it unnecessary to set up an additional Wi-Fi system in the building.

Reliable Detection At Night: M15D-Thermal and S15D-Thermal

A world first innovation, available in both the MOBOTIX M15D and S15D, is the ability to combine both thermal and optical sensor modules in the one camera. While the thermal sensor provides movement detection, the optical sensor provides crisp clear object identification. This enables the M15D and S15D to deliver accurate detection of motion in all lighting conditions and visual verification of who or what triggered the motion event. 
The advantage of using thermal sensor modules is that they can visualize heat radiating from vehicles and persons, for the purpose of accurate movement detection up to 400 meters away from the camera, even under the most challenging lighting and environmental conditions.

The flexible video cabling, weatherproof design and tiny footprint allows the two S15D thermal sensor modules to be installed into any location up to two meters away from a single S15D core unit. 

The MOBOTIX M15D and S15D dual lens cameras come standard with MxActivitySensor, a state of the art intelligent motion detection software. When enabled in the thermal camera, MxActivitySensor registers movement without artificial lighting in pitch black conditions and during the day time, with stunning accuracy.
