The new Mobotix Q24M hemispheric camera
Q24M features a double frame rate, a distortion-corrected 180° panorama view and integrated video storage
Mobotix, a manufacturer of complete high-resolution IP video systems, presents the new Q24M hemispheric camera which replaces the Q22M model.

Special features include a more powerful microprocessor and an optimised system platform attaining twice the image frame rate as before. Even 3.1 megapixel camera images can now be transferred at a rate of up to 20 frames per second and megapixel images at a rate of up to 30 frames per second. In addition to a 3.1 megapixel color sensor, the hemispheric camera also includes an internal DVR (digital video recorder) with a maximum memory capacity of 32 GB. The DVR is based on Flash memory technology for improved reliability and extended service life.

The combination of a high-resolution sensor, hemispheric lens and internal DVR allow you to view an entire room with just one Q24M camera and save the images in the camera as a high-resolution video sequence. The new Q24M hemispheric camera is available either as a basic or secure model. The Q24M Secure comes with a 4 GB MicroSD card that can record about 50,000 panorama images or four hours of video.

Distortion correction included

Like its predecessor, the Q22M hemispheric model, the Q24M includes an integrated distortion correction feature. This feature allows the perspective distortion of the image data to be corrected either in real time or during a subsequent search. The correction of the lens distortion automatically provides the viewer with an image that appears natural. One new feature of the Q24M is the "panorama correction". In just seconds, the user can independently fine-tune the live image in the panorama image generated by the camera.

The full image can optionally be saved for later research purposes: While you closely analyze image sections in the live image using the virtual, digital pan/tilt/zoom feature (PTZ), the camera continues to run in the background and record the entire room internally as a full image.

Discreet design - reliable in extreme situations

Q24M Secure comes with a 4 GB MicroSD card that can record about 50,000 panorama images or four hours of video

The camera can be connected via a network cable. A mini USB connector is available for extension modules such as the ExtIO. The connector cables are connected directly to the back of the camera using specially sealed plug-in connectors which have also been developed by Mobotix. Like all Mobotix cameras, the new Q24M has no moving parts and achieves therefore a very long service life with minimum maintenance. Thanks to its elegant and compact design, the camera can be discreetly integrated into any environment. The weatherproof housing allows the camera to be used outdoors in temperatures from -30 to +60°C (-22 to +140°F). Despite the powerful processor, the average power consumption of the Q24M with activated MicroSD card recording is very low at 4.5 watts.

Price, availability and accessories

The Q24M Basic is priced at £548 net while the secure version costs £748 net. The new models are available for immediate delivery.

The extensive range of camera accessories includes various mounting sets for multiple installation options (in-ceiling mounting, on-wall, on-wall at 10°, vandalism set, as well as wall, corner and pole mounts).

First award: Red Dot Design Award: product design 2009

This year the MOBOTIX Hemispheric Camera was given an honorable mention at the Red Dot Design Awards, one of the most renowned and competitive international design competitions. This was the first time that a security and surveillance camera received the award for its particularly exceptional detailed solution. Over 3,200 products from 49 countries took part in the competition.
