MOBOTIX - The HiRes Video Company
Leading Innovator In Network Camera Technology
In very little time, MOBOTIX has conquered second place in Europe and fourth place worldwide in terms of market share. MOBOTIX has been producing only megapixel cameras for years and, in this area, ranks as the global market leader in high-resolution video systems with a market share of over 60%.See the DIFFERENCE!
Why Use High-Resolution Systems?
The higher the resolution, the more details are in an image. Using traditional (analog) technology, a live image has no more than 0.4 megapixels and a recorded image only has 0.1 megapixels (CIF). On the contrary, a MOBOTIX camera with 3.1 megapixels records around 30 times more detail. As a result, larger image areas with up to 360° panorama are possible, thus reducing the number of cameras and therefore the costs. For example, four lanes of a gas station can be recorded using one MOBOTIX camera instead of four conventional cameras.
The Decentralized MOBOTIX Concept
Unlike other systems, the decentralized MOBOTIX concept incorporates a high-speed computer and, if necessary, a digital memory (SD card) for long-term recording in every camera. The PC is now used only for viewing, not for analysis or recording. As a result, MOBOTIX cameras can record events even without a running PC and digitally record videos with sound for archiving purposes.
MOBOTIX video solutions therefore require significantly:
- fewer cameras due to the more accurate detail of wide-angle images with megapixel technology,
- fewer PCs/DVRs, because around 40 cameras can store high-resolution video with sound efficiently on a single PC, or no PC at all when recording on the camera's digital storage (USB, SD card),
- lower network bandwidth, because everything is processed in the camera itself and the high-resolution images therefore do not have to be constantly transferred for analysis.
Robust & Low-Maintenance
MOBOTIX cameras do not require any lens or positioning motors. Without any moving parts, they are so robust that maintenance is reduced to a minimum. The unique temperature range from -30° to +60°C (-22° to +140°F) is achieved without heating or fan at only 3 watts power consumption. Since no PC hard disk is required for recording, there are no parts that wear out in the entire video system.
Software Included — For Life
There are no software or licensing costs with MOBOTIX, because the software is always supplied within the camera - for an unlimited number of cameras and users. The software package supplied with the camera also includes a professional control center software used at soccer stadiums, for example. Updates are supplied free of charge on the website. The system price for a weatherproof camera including lens, query software and day-to-day recording on the SD card costs under 1,000 Euros.
The German company MOBOTIX is known as the leading pioneer in network camera technology and its decentralized concept has made high-resolution video systems cost efficient.
