MxThinClient Features

Using the MxThinClient, you can show live streams of MOBOTIX x4/x5 or Mx6 cameras or static images (JPEG or PNG) on a TV or monitor with HDMI input. The maximum display resolution is Full HD. If the camera or images are too large, MxThinClient can downscale the images to the desired size.

The software of the MxThinClient has the following features:

Software Releases—Overview

Software Release V1.1.1.3 of MxThinClient

Creation Date: 2019-04-12

Publishing Date: 2019-04-15

Important Note

This software will force you to change the factory default password "meinsm".

Enhancements and Improvements

Integration of H.264 and MOBOTIX MOVE Cameras

Besides MOBOTIX IoT cameras using MxPEG, MxThinClient can now show live images of MOBOTIX IoT and MOVE cameras using H.264. For this purpose, the Configuration > Image Sources dialog has been extended in the New Image Source section to show the new Type field with these options: MxPEG (for MOBOTIX IoT cameras), H264 (for MOBOTIX IoT- and MOVE cameras), and Remote Image (for showing images). When selecting MxPEG or Remote Image, no additional settings as compared to the predecessor release are required. Using H264 allows setting the desired protocol and – if MOVE cameras are involved (MOBOTIX MOVE Camera) – you can also select the desired stream. All other settings that apply to establishing connections and displaying these cameras are identical to the integration of IoT cameras using MxPEG.

Additional languages

In the Web UI for configuring the MxThinClient, the languages Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Turkish can now also be set. 


Known Limitations


Software Release V1.1.0.3 of MxThinClient

Creation Date: 2018-01-31

Publishing Date: 2018-02-14

Important Note

This software will force you to change the factory default password "meinsm".

Enhancements and Improvements

Integration of MxThinClient into MxManagementCenter (Version 1.7 and Higher)

This firmware release allows integrating MxThinClient into MxManagementCenter (MxMC). You can use an MxThinClient thus integrated to show live streams of cameras on a monitor or TV connected to the MxThinClient via HDMI. The communication between MxMC and the MxThinClient uses the MxMessageSystem. Besides setting up the MxThinClient in the device tree of MxMC, you also need to configure the MxMessageSystem in the MxThinClient accordingly. It is also required that the MxMC computer and the MxThinClient are using the same time server to stay in sync. This is a prerequisite for successful operation of the MxMessageSystem.

Checking the Standard Access Credentials

When setting up an MxThinClient device with this software release for the first time or after updating from release 1.0 to this release, the device will check the access credentials and will force you to change the default password ("meinsm") if this password is still used.

Other Improvements

Connections to Camera via HTTPS Protocol

To access the images from cameras via https and the secure SSL protocol, you can activate the additional SSL/TLS support option.

Optional Suppression of Connection Errors

If you want to skip error messages of connection failures in sequencer mode, you can now open the Images Sources dialog and activate the new Skip Errors option.

Loading Image Sources

While configuring the image sources in MxThinClient, the device now shows a "Loading..." message, since this process may take several seconds for many image sources.
