MOBOTIX – Security-Vision-Systems
Innovative German IP Camera Manufacturer since 2000
Beside the professional VMS and video analysis software, MOBOTIX is known as an innovative
producer of smart and autonomous IP cameras since the year 2000. From the beginning,
cameras were equipped with CMOS sensors without any moving parts to improve backlight
situations and longterm reliability. The camera itself runs the software for automatic event
detection, alarm messaging, video analysis, direct NAS ring buffer storage and remote functions.
Two-way audio with VoIP messaging and phone connectivity using the SIP standard is included
in all MOBOTIX cameras. From the first day, MOBOTIX cameras are produced weatherproof and
IP66 protected with one of the highest quality standards. In 2015, a new range of competitive 6-
megapixel indoor cameras for flexible ceiling and wall-mount installations was launched.
MOBOTIX is located near the highway A63 approx. 90 km south west of Frankfurt Airport in
German System Manufacturer of Professional Video Management (VMS) and Smart IP
In short, MOBOTIX is a software company with own IP camera products, all made in Germany.
In 2005, MOBOTIX launched its first professional video management system which is still being
used in thousands of installations around the globe. These even include high-security
applications like prisons, airports or soccer stadiums because MOBOTIX systems have no
restrictions in terms of number of users or cameras. The professional VMS and the video
analysis are parts of the system offering and free of charge without any license fees. In addition,
software updates are free via download and transform every MOBOTIX product into a futureproof
investment with one of the highest returns on investment. Since 2015, all MOBOTX
cameras have used 6MP “Moonlight Sensor Technology”, which is very light sensitive and
produces brilliant videos even in difficult low-light conditions without any motion blur.
Decentralized Architecture Increases Reliability and Reduces System Costs
Since 2000, MOBOTIX IP cameras have been known for their high-quality video performance
and low bandwidth consumption thanks to their “decentralized architecturerdquo;. The cameras
themselves execute video analysis & event detection internally, and manage their video ring
buffer on a NAS or server by themselves. This reduces the workload of the VMS workstation and
network dramatically. Network fluctuations or longer interruptions are compensated by an
onboard video buffer (SD card). As a result, MOBOTIX video systems are very reliable and need
fewer servers, fewer workstations and less network infrastructure than other brands. This
reduces the overall system costs as well as power consumption and the total energy bill.
Encrypted recording by the camera itself guarantees data security and privacy.
The Perfect Solution for the Cloud is Decentralization
Since 2000, MOBOTIX IP cameras have been optimized for remote applications and cloudbased
technology because the cameras can reduce the bandwidth of the video by scaling the
size and the frame rate. Image details are still available thanks to the onboard virtual PTZ
functionality. So the cameras store high-resolution video onboard and deliver on demand lowbandwidth
live images and also low-bandwidth playback. Additionally, MOBOTIX cameras can
manage an event-driven video ring buffer via network or Internet. The live channel and the
recorded video are highly secured because the video encryption is already done inside the
