Software Release MX-V126.96.36.199 − for M7 Camera Model M73
Creation Date: 2020-02-13
Publishing Date: 2020-02-14
- First released software for completely newly developed M73
This is the first released software version for the new M7 camera line
with quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor. The M73 is the first model of
this new high-performance camera line. In addition to the well-known
functions of the Mx6 camera line, this supports completely new
features such as H.264 streaming with 30 frames/second at 4k
resolution, the use of 3 sensor or function modules, intelligent video
analysis with flexible AI and deep learning-based Apps and
- User interface equals
The software of the new model series based on this system
platform is largely identical in terms of operation, functions and
menu navigation with the software of the previous Mx6 series. This
applies both to the configuration via the user interface of the web
browser as well as to the integration into the
- Support for existing configurations
Existing camera configuration files from corresponding cameras of the
Mx6 model series can be loaded directly and used further. This is
important in the event of a camera being replaced or for the
integration of new cameras into existing systems. The configuration
for the fundamentally changed area of the Integration
Protocols, the completely new functional area of the
Apps and all new detailed functions, such as the setting of the IR cut
filter, must be recreated or adjusted.
The following describes the new features, enhancements and enhancements
compared to the first version 188.8.131.52 delivered with M73 cameras.
Enhancements and Improvements
Support for the new
IR-Cut Day & Night Sensor Modules and IR Light Modules
IR-Cut Day &
Night Sensor Module
supports the use of the new IR-Cut Day & Night sensor modules. These
are color sensor modules with an integrated swivel IR blocking filter
for day and night operation. This filter is automatically switched off
at low illumination, which also provides bright images at night and
using the possibly integrated IR module. This automatic mode is
activated by factory setting and the Lux value used to switch to night
mode can be set in the setup > image control > general
image settings dialog.
In the same dialog, the filter can also be switched manually if
of a possible integrated IR Light module is coupled to the activation of
the "Night Mode" as follows:
an IR-Cut Day & Night sensor module is also used, this is done
when switching the IR blocking filter off (see above).
the IR Light module is used together with a normal day and night
sensor module, the IR Light module is activated when the night sensor
module is activated by the automatic day-night switching.
Additional App for
addition to the A.I. Tech apps AI* the Visage Technology
Face Recognition app for facial recognition is also available
with this version. After installation (see the following notes), the
activation and configuration of this App is done exactly as for the
other apps in the Setup > Certified App
Control > Certified App Settings dialog.
Apps AI* from A.I.
firmware release also includes updated and improved versions of A.I's AI*
Apps. Tech (see below)
installing and using the AI* (A.I. Tech) and Visage
Technology Face Recognition Apps
- These Apps are installed by uploading the file 'MX_preinstalled_apps_7_0120.app'
via the Admin > System Update > Update System
Software dialog in the web browser or using the
MxManagementCenter. You can download this file from the Support >
Download Center > Software Downloads > Certified Apps section
of the MOBOTIX web site. The AI* Apps already included in
version 184.108.40.206 are updated.
- The update to version 220.127.116.11 will delete previously generated
results of the Apps AI* that may have been generated and
stored on the camera's internal SD card.
- By installing the above App package 'MX_preinstalled_apps_7_0120.app',
previously executed configurations of the apps AI* are
overwritten again with the factory settings. The previously performed
configurations can be backed up before installation and reloaded if
Apps and messages from the MxMessagesystem
Activating an App automatically defines a matching message in the
MxMessageSystem, which is sent internally (locally) after a detection of
the App. All App messages that can be used in this way are listed in the
Message Events section of the Setup > Event
Control > Event Overview dialog and can be further
configured from there. Depending on the App, the messages sent when a
detection event occurs also contain parameters that can be used for
event processing. For example, the message can be searched with a
regular expression as a filter for a text (string). In this case, an
action is executed only if the message sent by the App contains the
previously defined text as a parameter. The complete message sent by an
App during detections, including the parameters, can be listed by
entering the command <IP>/api/json/messages
in the web browser, after a previously performed detection.
one of the A.I. Tech Apps was configured with a sensor other than
the one currently shown in the camera live image, the camera could
have done a restart.
the application of some A.I. Tech apps (e.g. AIParking)
a camera restart could occur after a few minutes.
addition, after activating the A.I. Tech apps, there were
performance problems with camera operation in the web browser.
When using the full screen recording, there could be image errors
(stripes in the picture).
If only one image sensor module is connected in the M73, the streaming
mode Raw cannot be selected at this time.
- MOBOTIX ExtIO only supported via USB
The usage of the MX-ExtIO via network (Ethernet) is no longer supported by MOBOTIX with its current camera portfolio. The MX-ExtIO can still be used via a direct USB connection to a MOBOTIX camera.
