MOBOTIX S15D overview

  • 1Description

The S15D FlexMount Hemispheric Network Camera Complete Set 3 from MOBOTIX consists of the S15D FlexMount Core, two 5MP sensor modules (day and night) each with a 12mm fisheye lens, two 6.6' extension cables, two extension sets, a 1.65' (0.5m) Ethernet cable, and two white replacement domes.

The compact S15D FlexMount is a universally deployable, easily concealable video system with a highly detailed resolution of up to 6MP. The day sensors connect to the camera housing with the 6.6' extension cables. The flat housing, including integrated long-term flash memory (microSD card, 4GB card included), and external connectors (Ethernet, MiniUSB, MxBus, audio) can be installed discreetly and with optimal protection behind a wall or ceiling panel so that only the lenses are visible in the room.

This PoE camera requires just one cable for data and power, and connects to any expandable Ethernet network. The entire system including the cables and sensor modules are weatherproof and can operate in a temperature range of -22 to 140°F (-30 to 60°C). Because the camera never fogs up and does not require any heating, it can be operated all year round with power supplied via a standard PoE network cable. The power consumption is less than 5W.

Each 5MP hemispheric sensor module features a 12mm ultra-wide angle fisheye lens, which enables the camera to capture 180° hemispheric images. When ceiling mounted, the image area covers the entire room. However, the captured hemispheric image is convex, particularly near the corners. These convex areas of the images are de-warped by the integrated distortion correction software, thereby providing a view of the scene from the usual perspective.

Each hemispheric sensor module comes with an integrated microphone and 2 status LEDs. It is supplied preassembled for ceiling or wall mounting and features a white exterior, enabling it to blend into most installation environments. The increased light sensitivity of the sensor module ensures 3MEGA live color images that can be enlarged to show clear details even under low lighting conditions.

The two hemispheric sensors can be installed in different mounting positions (ceiling, wall, floor), even in different rooms, if needed. Each sensor module offers the full range of functions provided by a hemispheric camera. Alternatively, the black-and-white and color sensor modules are mounted directly next to each other so they cover the same area. The camera automatically chooses the best available mode depending on the lighting conditions-either the day (color) or the night (black & white) sensor.

The flexible and future-proof design allows for configuring the system to suit the location's requirements. Replacing the sensor modules at a later stage to change the focal length is quick and easy, as is adding a second sensor module.

A number of additional devices can be used together with the S15D system. They can be connected via a network switch or directly to the camera housing via MxBus or MiniUSB (for example, ExtIO, MOBOTIX interface boxes, audio devices, flash drives, or UMTS/Wi-Fi USB modems, all available separately). If the network switch features Internet connectivity, it can be used for encrypted access to the camera footage from virtually anywhere in the world.

Discreet Modules and Flexible Installation
The camera can be installed discreetly and with optimal protection behind a wall or ceiling panel so that only the lenses are visible in the room. Thanks to the included 6.6' extension cable, the sensor modules can be placed away from the camera housing. The system can be enhanced by adding devices such as ExtIO, MOBOTIX interface boxes, audio devices, flash drives or UMTS/Wi-Fi USB modems (all sold separately) using the MiniUSB and MxBus interfaces. This video system is suitable for buses, trains, and other types of vehicles with minimal technical requirements.
Dual Images up to 6MP
The S15D FlexMount Core supports two 5MP sensor modules (included) which can be combined to output a color dual image up to 6MP in size. Each sensor module comes with an integrated microphone and two status LEDs, which can be connected to the core module via cables up to 6' long. The visible external part of the sensor module is white in color, enabling it to blend into most installation environments. The system can be fitted with two day or two night sensor modules. The maximum frame rate can be up to 30 fps, depending on the resolution selected.
Double Hemispheric Camera
The two hemispheric sensors can be installed in different mounting positions (ceiling, wall, floor), even in different rooms, if needed. Each sensor module offers the full range of functions provided by a hemispheric camera. Alternatively, the black-and-white and color sensor modules are mounted directly next to each other so they cover the same area. The camera automatically chooses the best available mode depending on the lighting conditions-either the day (color) or the night (black & white) sensor. The image in the hemisphere is convex, particularly near the image borders. These image sections are corrected for the viewer by the integrated distortion correction software, allowing a view of the scene from the usual perspective.
Integrated Sensors
The sensors enable the camera to automatically detect when an event has occurred. If necessary, the camera will respond immediately with an alarm sound and will establish a direct video and sound connection to a control room. In addition, when the camera housing receives a blow, the integrated shock detector enables the camera to capture a video of the offender, trigger a sound alarm, and notify the security company by an SIP call.
IP65-Rated Weatherproof Solution
There are two options for a weatherproof connection of the network cable to the housing. A MOBOTIX patch cable up to 3.3' (10m) in length can be plugged externally into the housing from below and secured with a weatherproof bayonet catch, or the eight individual strands of the cable can be attached directly to the LSA cutting clamp inside the camera housing. This IP65-rated camera is suitable for wide range of indoor/outdoor applications thanks to its operating temperature range of -22 to 140°F (-30 to 60°C) without heater or fan.
Decentralized Video System
The camera is equipped with a high-speed processor and flash memory (via microSD card slot, 4GB card included) to provide several days of recording time. The computer or video control center is required only to view and control the cameras. Most of the important video management functions that require a large amount of processing power are integrated into the camera. The on-board image processing ensures minimal network load.
Backlight-Proof for High Contrast Scenarios
The camera is not adversely affected by the glare from direct sunlight. The firmware with independent exposure settings helps the camera capture detailed images even in rooms with large glass fronts.
Panoramic View
The hemispheric image (original full image) can be transformed into an ultra-wide angle panoramic view if the camera is mounted on a wall, providing a view of the room without any blind spots from wall to wall. It offers a substantially wide angle of view, thereby requiring fewer cameras to monitor a room and saving costs.
Panorama Focus
The hemispheric sensor module can also provide two additional views so that you can focus on two areas of the same frame simultaneously in addition to the panoramic view.
Double Panorama
When the camera is mounted in the center of the ceiling in a room, the Double Panorama mode provides a corrected panorama image of both halves of the room.
Virtual PTZ
The virtual PTZ feature allows the user to enlarge or move image sections within the viewable area just like with a PTZ camera, without the need for mechanical moving parts. This allows for silent panning and focusing on a specific image area.
Smooth High Resolution Video Streams
Since image streams of 16 fps and higher are perceived fluid by the human eye, the maximum frame rate is limited to 30 fps (when using MEGA resolution of 1280 x 960) in order to provide sufficient camera processing power for other tasks.
Conclusive Still Images
Thanks to the proprietary MxPEG video codec, the recording can be paused at any given point and still provide meaningful and useful snapshots due to the absence of distortion. This is essential for security applications and allows individuals or license plates to be identified.
Good Color Images Even In Low Light
The high-sensitivity 5MP sensor provides optimal image quality even in low ambient light, such as at dusk or during heavy rainfall.
Good Details When Zooming
The high degree of detail provided by the 5MP sensor provides good detail when zooming. This allows for the camera to be installed far from objects and areas to be monitored.
Up to 3.1MP Black & White Images
The sensor captures B&W images in resolutions up to 3.1MP in size. The digital zoom function of the 5MP sensor provides good magnification of details.
Low Power Consumption with Poe (IEEE 802.3af)
Setting the PoE class via the camera software also allows the use of PoE switches that cannot be operated on all PoE class 3 ports (up to maximum 12.95V). The power consumption is under 5W.
Lip-Synchronous Audio Recording and Bidirectional Communication
In the event of an alarm, the camera can record lip-synchronous audio. Thanks to the integrated microphone and interface for an external speaker, the camera can also be used for bidirectional communication (two-way video communication), so you can easily use the MOBOTIX App with your iPhone or iPad on the road.
Flexible and Future-Proof Design
The camera features MxLEO for optimum exposure and reduced image noise. MxActivitySensor is a software-based activity-controlled image analysis tool for detecting movement of people and objects in a monitored area (full image or section). It is easy to configure and delivers reliable results, even in applications with large amounts of external interference. It is highly secure, as it detects even the smallest movements and reduces the number of false alarms.
