MOBOTIX is starting series production of the new Mx6 6MP camera line with the outdoor dual cameras M16, D16, S16 and V16. In terms of their outer appearance, these models look exactly the same as the x15 cameras (which are still available); all the innovations in these new cameras have been made to the mainboard 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. For example, they deliver 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 also has more capacity for software applications such as 3D motion analysis and licence plate capture (ANPR) in the camera. Regular software updates ensure that the performance of the intelligent camera system continually improves. This makes the Mx6 camera system a smart investment.
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. Moreover, Mx6 cameras also offer basic functions in keeping with ONVIF, a global open interface standard. The next firmware update will achieve complete ONVIF compatibility. The new Mx6 camera system is far more flexible and higher performing, thanks to RTSP/Multicast. Multicast enables simultaneous camera access for any number of users without reducing the frame rate.
