Visitors can get up-close with the advantages and possible uses of MOBOTIX M15D-Thermal weatherproof day and night camera
MOBOTIX also demonstrated its new MxMultiViewer VMS, T25 IP video door station and MxDisplay video remote station

At Light+Building 2014 in Frankfurt, MOBOTIX presents its first thermographic camera M15D-Thermal, demonstrates its current camera platform with 5-megapixel technology and introduces new software developments as well as solutions in the area of building technology.

From 30 March to 4 April, at the MOBOTIX exhibition stand D40 in hall 9.0, visitors can get up-close with the advantages and possible uses of the M15D-Thermal weatherproof day and night camera. Other product highlights include, for example, the new, intuitive MxMultiViewer video management software, the T25 IP Video Door Station and the MxDisplay video remote station.

Reliable detection at night: M15D-Thermal

The new modules of the thermographic camera measure the thermal radiation of objects and persons and therefore work even in complete darkness. In connection with the MOBOTIX MxActivitySensor motion detection software, it is possible to detect movements in the image reliably also at night. Only changes in location trigger a signal, while objects moving in place do not.

Also at daytime, thermal modules provide an advantage, because they also capture objects moving in the shadows, in twilight or behind bushes. The advantages of an M15-Dual camera with a thermal module and daylight sensor originate from the combination of both images: images taken by day or also in the twilight produce high-resolution 5-megapixel images, while movements at night are detected reliably. The MOBOTIX thermal modules have been certified as weatherproof according to IP65. Like daylight modules, they are available in different focal lengths.

Intuitive video management software: MxMultiViewer

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.

Modular system for building technology: T25 IP Video Door Station

The T25 IP Video Door Station from MOBOTIX is a modular system for door communication and access control. The system supports the VoIP/SIP video telephony standard and can be upgraded or modified at any time. The camera module featuring innovative MOBOTIX 5-megapixel technology records all events taking place in front of the building or gate. Thanks to the special hemispheric technology, it provides a view without blind spots from wall to wall and from floor to ceiling. The T25 allows for all events in front of the door to be recorded with sound. It also provides for intercom communication and remote opening function - accessible anywhere in the world, for example using a PC or the MOBOTIX App. An integrated message function makes it possible to leave and listen to messages directly at the door. Further features include keyless entry via a PIN code, RFID transponder or, conveniently while away from home, via the MOBOTIX App. In combination with other installed MOBOTIX cameras and system accessories, the T25 can be expanded into a multifunctional comprehensive system.

Sees everything: MxDisplay Video Remote Station

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.

Smartphones 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 smartphones and computers, which makes it unnecessary to set up an additional Wi-Fi system in the building.

Additional Information:

10 To 20 times more light sensitive: New 5-Megapixel cameras

The new camera line with 5-megapixel sensors - S15, M15, D15, M25, D25, T25 and Q25 - is considerably more light sensitive than previous 3-megapixel models. As a result, a significantly shorter exposure time can be selected even in poor lighting conditions. This way, the motion blur is reduced drastically.

Image improvement through noise suppression: MxLEO

With MxLEO, the new 5-megapixel camera line has, for the first time, software for image improvement in very dark settings and therefore minimises motion blur significantly

With MxLEO, the new 5-megapixel camera line has, for the first time, software for image improvement in very dark settings and therefore minimises motion blur significantly. In addition, the new models feature directly on the image sensor a hardware-based noise filter that minimises image noise, thus allowing for shorter exposure times and also sharper images. Depending on the requirements, it is now possible to select whether the automatic exposure is to extend the calculated exposure time, for example, to create night recordings for web images rich in contrast, or whether to shorten it in order to create sharp images of especially fast movements.

Massive reduction of false alarms: MxActivitySensor Motion Detection Software

Particularly in outdoor areas with difficult environmental conditions, such as trees moving in the wind, shadows, clouds or snowfall, detecting objects represents a huge challenge. If every movement is captured and recorded, they will lead to false alarms and unnecessary recordings. A lot of memory will be used up and the user will have to search through the entire area to find the important scenes. By contrast, MxActivitySensor only records video or triggers an alarm if something relevant actually occurs in the image. It blocks out any interference, and apart from selecting an image area, it can also select the direction of motion for objects that are to trigger a recording or alarm. This way, much less memory is used, and the user saves an enormous amount of time, because only relevant scenes have to be evaluated.
