MOBOTIX, the world's largest manufacturer of megapixel network video surveillance systems, recently unveiled a major update to MxControlCenter, its network video management platform. Focusing on operator usability, MxControlCenter 2.5 introduces a host of new features, including; saved search profiles to make user defined common search queries a single-click operation, unlimited users and groups rights management control with full action audit log, and video motion search on recorded footage to identify critical events quickly.

Playback has been improved, putting common functions in user-friendly locations. MxControlCenter 2.5 also improves initial system setup, allowing recording paths for multiple cameras to be configured in a single operation.

Mike Lewis, MOBOTIX Business Development Director for UK & Ireland, said, "Continuing with the MOBOTIX philosophy of providing the software without charge or ongoing fees further demonstrates why MOBOTIX are able to offer competitive, cost effective, scalable and future-proofed solutions.

Other vendors charge tens of thousands of dollars for their video management platforms. We provide this software to our customers with no per-server or per-camera licenses, no installation fees, unlimited instances, plus phone and e-mail support for the life of the system.

We've introduced some really great features that we think our customers are going to find very useful. Feedback from our customers worldwide has been key in creating the 2.5 release.

ControlCenter allows users to easily manage and monitor their cameras and footage on-the-fly. This new release cements ControlCenter's position as a market leader and strengthens the overall MOBOTIX offering," Mr. Lewis said.

These new features build on MxControlCenter's already strong offering, including; alarm notification and management, system and software configuration management and backup, automatic camera discovery and setup using built-in Bonjour services, and flexible grid and background layouts.

MxControlCenter 2.5 integrates features for managing video walls using cheap and readily available thin client PCs & LCD screens, making command centre setups simple and cost efficient.

The new software has an improved export function, with additional container formats. Live recording of camera streams - even different cameras - as one clip on the local archive, means that someone tracking suspicious persons in an MxCC layout across several cameras can track that group or individual and record it as one clip.

Peter Anderson, IT Manager, The Berkeley Hotel, London UK is already using the new software. "The new MxControlCenter update from MOBOTIX has made my day-to-day use of the system much easier. I've always loved this software, and the new features make it an even more powerful tool for managing our security system," Mr. Anderson said.
