5 megapixel sensor

September 2013 Products, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Mobotix has launched three new camera models with higher frame rate, better light sensitivity, and better zoom capability using 5 megapixel technology. The new camera models are the S15, D15 and V15.

"The most visible changes that we have made for the users are that they will experience a clearly better light sensitivity in low light conditions or at night," says Dr. Ralf Hinkel, founder of Mobotix. "The light sensitivity of the overall image quality is up to four times better, which enhances the overall image quality in for instance bad weather conditions and in the dark."

The maximum QXGA resolution is therefore more than 2,5 times higher than full HD. Another major advantage is that the new sensor technology in combination with preprocessing the image data directly in the camera delivers a video stream frame rate of up to 30 frames per second.

"We have increased the zoom option in colour by 27% by using the new sensor technology, and by more than 200% in black-and-white," continues Hinkel. This results in more detailed images and allows for the camera to be positioned further away from the monitored areas.

The new S15, D15 and V15 camera models are equipped with the new, unique MxActivitySensor for camera-integrated video motion analysis.

The new models are available from IAC.
