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.  

The Benefits

MOBOTIX video solutions therefore require significantly:


  • fewer cameras due to the more accurate detail of wide-angle images with mega-pixel technology

  • fewer storage devices, because in the decentralized system, 10 times the standard number of cameras can simultaneously store high-resolution HDTV video with sound on one PC/server.

  • lower network bandwidth, because everything is processed in the camera itself and the high-resolution images therefore do not have to be constantly transferred for analysis.


Robust and Low-Maintenance

MOBOTIX cameras do not require any lens or positioning motors. Without any moving parts, they are so robust that maintenance is reduced to a 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.


Software included for life


There are no software or licensing costs with MOBOTIX, because the software is always supplied within the camera for an unlimited number of cameras and users. The software package supplied with the camera also includes a professional control center software used at football stadiums, for example. Updates are supplied free of charge on the website.
