MOBOTIX Corp., an industry-leading provider of high-resolution, network-based surveillance systems, recently announced its enhanced integration with Wavestore V5 video management software. The technical collaboration allows MOBOTIX to pursue opportunities within the hybrid and legacy systems market due to Wavestore’s support of analogue surveillance cameras.

The integration offers MOBOTIX resellers and customers the opportunity to leverage existing investments as they transition to IP technologies. WavestoreUSA clients can now take advantage of the cost savings derived from hemispheric and 360-degree cameras from MOBOTIX. A single 360-degree camera enables customers to save on infrastructure and security personnel because it reduces the number of cameras required for a typical surveillance installation.

Wavestore V5 facilitates the viewing and recording of original fisheye images captured by the MOBOTIX Q24 hemispheric camera, and simultaneously displays dewarped views alongside captured images from other cameras in a multi-image display. The original pictures captured by the 360-degree cameras are stored unaltered in case video data must be presented in a court of law. A single 360-degree image is transmitted regardless of how many dewarped views are being displayed on the WaveView client, saving bandwidth and ensuring very fast image updates and a streamlined user experience.

Joint customers will also benefit from the decentralised MOBOTIX concept, which incorporates a high-speed computer into every camera to reduce network bandwidth. Video is processed in the camera itself, and images do not have to be transferred continuously. The integration between WavestoreUSA and MOBOTIX allows for the combination of high-resolution and decentralised storage benefits with the open architecture, scalability and reliability of advanced VMS functionality.

“This technical relationship demonstrates our commitment to the industry and market demands,” said Mike Scirica, Vice President of Marketing and Sales, WavestoreUSA. “As an open-platform solution, V5 can combine MOBOTIX cameras, including hemispheric cameras with legacy analogue or new IP video cameras, into a single, user-friendly platform to provide greater functionality and ease of use. Our integration with MOBOTIX is an important step toward delivering customers with more flexible and scalable recording and processing options.”

“Our partnership with Wavestore demonstrates our collective commitment to providing customers with a variety of surveillance options that deliver unmatched video quality, ease of management and integration, while allowing users to maximise existing investments,” said Steve Gorski, General Manager, Americas, MOBOTIX Corp.
