Hemispheric camera with video analysis tool

October 2012 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products

The Mobotix Q24M-Sec hemispheric camera, which can capture an entire room with no blind spots, now includes the integrated MxAnalytics video analysis tool. MxAnalytics is a tool for process optimisation or marketing purposes and can be used in small retail stores as well as in public buildings such as museums or airports.

Heat map

Which shelves in the shop are attracting the most customers? Which products at the exhibition booth hold the attention of the visitors most? Which waiting areas in the departure hall are preferred on Mondays between 8 am and 12 pm.? MxAnalytics makes it possible to capture and evaluate the movement of people or objects in the live image. The most frequented areas are highlighted in colour on a heat map. The areas with the most movement are displayed in red, and those with little movement in blue.

Counting lines

Using counting lines to count people and objects and generate observation data is a valuable tool. How many people pass by a specific entrance in an hour or a day? And what direction were they coming from? The results of the video motion analysis can be saved as daily, weekly or monthly reports in a table and exported via various interfaces. Whether via Web, e-mail or as a MxControlCenter prompt, the reports are automatically collected in the camera and can be easily accessed or sent at any time. This can take place automatically and individually for any number of addressees.

Reduce costs

In addition to the count feature, the analysis of statistical behaviour data makes an essential contribution to process optimisation, thus further reducing costs.

Mobotix cameras like the Q24M differ from most traditional video systems thanks to their decentralised system architecture. Each camera includes a high-speed computer with long-term memory. It is no longer necessary to use a computer or server to record or analyse image material. Video analysis takes place in the camera, without network load. This reduces total costs and maintains the system’s high performance. MxAnalytics is available free of charge with the latest firmware V.4.1.4.11 and from the Mobotix website with no usage restrictions. It can also be easily integrated into all older Q24M-Sec models via software update.

The new release (2.5.2) of the free MxControlCenter video management software supports MxAnalytics. This allows evaluating the results from different cameras in a more convenient manner. The update enables the configuration of MxAnalytics on a Q24M camera and subsequent analysis of the created and stored data. MxControlCenter 2.5.2 can be downloaded free of charge from the Mobotix Web site.

Mobotix is continuing to develop MxAnalytics for image data processing inside the camera for the Q24 initially. The camera needs little maintenance and can be discreetly integrated into any environment thanks to its elegant design and compact size. The next step will be the integration into further Mobotix camera models.
