|MOBOTIX is also demonstrating its remote station for IP video door intercom and introducing new software developments
At this year’s 60th Annual ASIS International Conference and Exhibition, 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 booth is located at 3405.
“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 (colour) 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
“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”
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 visualise 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.
