22/10/2015 - New Thermal Radiometry Helps To Prevent Fire

First MOBOTIX Thermal cameras to create automatic temperature alarms

Langmeil, October 22, 2015. MOBOTIX has launched a new series of thermal camera products, equipped with a new type of thermal sensing technology to realize automatic events, based on absolute temperature within -40°C to +550°C. This new technology is perfect to generate automatic alarms, defined by temperatures limits or temperature ranges, which is vital to detect potential fire or heat sources. At the same time, MOBOTIX provides a software update free of charge to upgrade existing thermal cameras with thermal spot metering in the image center.

Waste disposal

Within the available temperature range of -40°C to +550°C and a thermal sensitivity of 0.05°C (NETD=50mK), different temperature conditions can be easily defined within the new TR (Thermal Radiometry) window or over the whole sensor image with a typical accuracy of ±10°C. Up to 20 multiple temperature events can be defined at the same time. Spot metering, which measures temperature related to 4 pixels at the image center, is also improved in the new thermal TR products with a typical accuracy of ±10°C. These new releases will help to prevent bigger damages in industrial and commercial premises, at manufacturing and logistic sites, recycling facilities, forests, etc.

MOBOTIX Thermal Radiometry (TR) is available in its popular  M15, and as a sensor module in the S15 dual camera system.  Furthermore, TR is also available as S15 PT-mount sensor head.  Both S15 thermal modules can be set up as dual thermal system  for most flexible usage or as the perfect combination of thermal  and optical sensor technology to ensure the most reliable  detection results and visual verification at the same time.

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.
