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 future-proof 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.
Since 2000, MOBOTIX IP cameras have been known for their high-quality video performance and low bandwidth consumption thanks to their “decentralized architecture”. 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.
