Spytek Security is a certified Mobotix Solution Provider.
MOBOTIX is the most advanced Innovative IP Digital Camera Technology from Germany. Experience the power of German Engineering.
In very little time, MOBOTIX has conquered second place in Europe and fourth place worldwide in terms of market share. MOBOTIX has been producing only megapixel cameras for years and, in this area, ranks as the global market leader in high-resolution video systems with a market share of over 60%.
Why Use High-Resolution Mobotix Systems?
The higher the resolution, the more details are in an image. Using traditional (analog) technology, a live image has no more than 0.4 megapixels and a recorded image only has 0.1 megapixels (CIF). On the contrary, a MOBOTIX camera with 3.1 megapixels records around 30 times more detail. As a result, larger image areas with up to 360° panorama are possible, thus reducing the number of cameras and therefore the costs. For example, four lanes of a gas station can be recorded using one MOBOTIX camera instead of four conventional cameras.
Disadvantages Of The Old Centralized Solution
Usually cameras only supply the images while the processing and recording is done later on a central PC using video management software. This traditional centralized structure is unsuitable for high-resolution video systems, since it requires not only high network bandwidth, but also needs enormous PC processing power to support several cameras. An HDTV MPEG4 film already puts considerable strain on a PC, so how can it be expected to process dozens of high-resolution live cameras? Traditional centralised systems are therefore neither cost-efficient nor suitable due to the large number of PCs required for high-resolution systems.
The Decentralized MOBOTIX Concept
Unlike other systems, the decentralized MOBOTIX concept incorporates a high-speed computer and, if necessary, a digital memory (SD card) for long-term recording in every camera. The PC is now used only for viewing, not for analysis or recording. As a result, MOBOTIX cameras can record events even without a running PC and digitally record videos with sound for archiving purposes.
MOBOTIX video solutions therefore require significantly:
• Fewer cameras due to the more accurate detail of wide-angle images
• Fewer PCs/DVDs, because around 40 cameras can store high-resolution video with sound efficiently on a single PC
• Lower network bandwidth, because everything is processed in the camera
• Microphone and speaker with improved audio quality
• Digital continuous zoom, pan and tilt – Digital PTZ.
Robust Low-Maintenance (Solid State)
MOBOTIX cameras do not require any lens or positioning motors similar to Solid State Drives (SSD). Without any moving parts, they are so robust that maintenance is reduced to a absolute minimum. The unique temperature range from -30° to +60°C
(-22° to +140°F) is achieved without heating or fan at only 3 watts power consumption. Since no PC hard disk is required for recording, there are no parts that wear out in the entire video system.
