MOBOTIX has launched its new Mx6 6MP camera line with the outdoor dual cameras M16, D16, S16 and V16. These models feature the same robust poly housings but look the same as the still available x15 cameras but have innovations to main board and camera software.
Mx6 cameras use a new, more powerful CPU that delivers up to twice as many images per second at the same resolution – up to 34 frames per second in full HD. This allows for even better capture of quick movements. The new camera line is not only faster, but has more capacity for software applications such as 3D motion analysis and license plate capture in the camera. Regular software updates ensure that the performance of the intelligent camera system continually improves.
Mx6 cameras simultaneously deliver video data in up to three different formats: MxPEG, MJPEG and, for the first time, H.264. This allows MOBOTIX users to choose the right codec for their application; for example, they can use MxPEG to fulfill requirements for high image quality or use H.264 to achieve compatibility with the industry standard. Mx6 cameras also offer basic functions in keeping with ONVIF, a global open interface standard. The next firmware update will achieve complete ONVIF compatibility (www.onvif.org). There’s also RTSP/Multicast, which enables simultaneous camera access for any number of users without reducing the frame rate.
The first step will be to introduce the dual camera models D16, M16, S16 and V16, which offer the greatest scope of functionality and, thanks to their robust design, are particularly well suited for use outdoors. A modular system with various sensor and lens options allows the MOBOTIX dual cameras to be customized. ♦
