MOBOTIX M26: Cutting cost not quality

Product Profile

The old saying, “You get what you pay for!” is a common refrain by considered shoppers, yet an innovative tweak can help make budgets go further, as is the case of the new MOBOTIX M26 outdoor camera family.

Single sensor mounting

Designed as a compact, cost-efficient and extremely powerful all-round model; the M26 features 6MP Moonlight technology and in common with the MOBOTIX heritage, is designed with no moving parts and housed within an IP66-certified chassis, plus long-term internal storage on a MicroSD card. The biggest change is the use of a single sensor mounting for lens ranging from Super-Tele (8°) to Ultra-Wide (103°).

180° hemispheric lens

For hemispheric models, the unit comes with a factory installed 180° hemispheric lens. The camera includes the full MOBOTIX built-in software suite and is designed for outdoor use when only a single colour, mono or hemispheric image is required without the need for a second lens. With the addition of the M26, MOBOTIX completes its new Mx6 Outdoor Camera series, which is far more flexible and higher-performing, thanks to RTSP/Multicast. Multicast enables simultaneous camera access for any number of users without reducing the frame rate.
