The S14 FlexMount from Mobotix, a flexible double hemispheric camera, is now available. The camera, which is available in both mono (S14M) and dual (S14D) versions, features miniature lens units and offers a wide range of application opportunities. For instance, the S14D can be equipped with two hemispheric lens units with integrated microphone that are connected to the main housing via cables. This makes it possible to fully secure two rooms located next to or on top of one another with just one S14. The slim design of the module units, which are available in white and black, permit an extremely discreet installation.
The S14 FlexMount offers the option to set up two hemispheric lens units simultaneously in order to completely cover two adjacent rooms. When installed in a certain way, the S14D can also see around corners or secure indoor and outdoor areas at the same time. The two sensors allow the S14 to generate two distortion-corrected, high-resolution 180 panorama images, each with a resolution of 3.1 megapixels. All other Mobotix lenses, from super-wide angle to tele lens, will be available in the near future in day or night versions.
When both modules with black-and-white and colour sensors are mounted directly next to each other and cover the same area, the camera automatically chooses the best available mode depending on the lighting conditions. Panning and zooming into the image is done purely electronically. The user is provided with detail views and other image sections without any mechanical movement, meaning that there is no wear-and-tear to the camera and no maintenance is required.
Both module units and the separate housing with the latest dual camera board are weatherproof in accordance with IP65 and operate in a temperature range of -30oC to +60°C. The flat housing, including flash memory with up to 64 GB and all external connectors (Ethernet, MiniUSB, MxBus), can be installed discreetly and with optimal protection behind a wall or ceiling panel so that only the lens units in their ultra-compact protective housing are visible. Power is supplied cost effectively via a network cable (PoE). At less than five watt-hours, the energy consumption is extremely low.
The software for configuration and operation of the camera is integrated directly into the camera. Additionally, professional video management software can be downloaded from the website free of charge.
