  • 1Description

The high-resolution AllroundMono M25M Sec Hemispheric IP Camera with Day Sensor & L12 Fisheye Lens from MOBOTIX is a universally deployable and easily concealable camera system. It features a 1/2.5" 5MP CMOS day (color) image sensor and L12 fisheye lens, which is secured by a lock ring. The 5MP sensor has a resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels (QXGA). In combination with the hemispheric L12 lens (180° horizontal image angle), the M25M becomes a hemispheric camera. Thanks to the fisheye technology with integrated distortion correction, the camera provides a wide overview.

The correction of the distorted hemispheric image happens directly in the camera and not on the computer, thus drastically reducing the size of the image before it is transferred and stored. This reduces the network load and allows the display of multiple hemispheric cameras on a computer or smartphone.

Thanks to the proprietary MxPEG video codec, the camera offers the advantage of pausing the recording at any given point and still providing meaningful and useful snapshots without distortion. You can use the MxEasy and MxControlCenter software free of charge and with an unlimited user and camera license.

The MxLEO Lowlight Exposure Optimization technology provides digital image optimization. It generates perceptibly better and more detailed images especially under low-light conditions below 25 lux. The vPTZ function (virtual Pan, Tilt, Zoom) is a standard feature in the integrated M25M camera software. Depending on the platform used to operate the camera (Internet browser, MxEasy, MxControlCenter), the vPTZ function may work in a different manner.

The M25M features direct recording to the integrated 4GB microSD card, making the camera fully independent of any external storage media, even for longer periods of time. The camera internally stores high-resolution video, without requiring an external recording device or PC and therefore does not overload the network. Old recordings can be automatically overwritten or deleted after a specified period of time.

The camera features MxActivitySensor, an activity-controlled, software-based image analysis function for detecting movement of people and objects in a monitored area (full image or section). Whether large objects in the foreground or small ones in the background, MxActivitySensor only records video or triggers an alarm if an important event actually occurs. This IP camera is powered via the network cabling using standard PoE (IEEE 802.3af) products (available separately). Adjusting the PoE class via the camera software enables the use of PoE switches that cannot be operated on all ports with PoE class 3 (up to 12.95V).

The camera is resistant against water jets and ingress of dust (IP66-rated). In combination with the supplied VarioFlex wall and ceiling mount, you can use the camera in outdoor applications and installation over flush-mounted sockets so that the cabling remains perfectly concealed.

5MP Image Sensor

The camera features a 1/2.5" 5MP CMOS day (color) sensor. The light sensitivity of the 5MP color sensor enhances the overall image quality while zooming even in bad weather or low-light conditions.

More Details When Zooming

Thanks to its zooming capability and high resolution, the camera can be installed even further away from the objects and areas to be monitored.

Conclusive Still Images

Thanks to the proprietary MxPEG video codec, the camera offers the advantage that a 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.

Smooth HiRes Video Streams

The modified hardware of the M25M transmits the camera's video streams smoothly, even when high resolution is required. Since image streams of 16 fps and higher are perceived as smooth video 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. Thanks to its internal pre-processing of the image data, the camera can generate video streams with up to 30 fps.

Simultaneous Corrected Live Image and Full Image Recording

The Full Image Recording feature does not store the currently viewed image that reflects the pan/tilt position and the zoom setting chosen, but the full sensor image, without vPTZ settings or image correction. When examining the recorded images, the vPTZ features again come into play, as they allow zooming the visible image and using the pan/tilt features to examine every corner of the recorded full image.

MxLEO: Exposure Optimization and Reduced Image Noise

MxLEO-MOBOTIX Lowlight Exposure Optimization-is an innovative technology that provides digital image optimization. On the one hand, the improved light sensitivity of the MOBOTIX 5MP sensor drastically reduces exposure times. MxLEO generates perceptibly better and more detailed images especially under low-light conditions below 25 lux. Such conditions are typical at a parking lot at night that is illuminated by regular lights (approximately 10 to 25 lux), or in a building after hours, in which the emergency lights are burning (approximately 5 lux). This significantly reduces motion blur that is typical of longer exposure times with little light and thus provides much more image detail (faces, license plates, etc.) for proper identification.

Lens

The camera comes pre-installed with an L12 hemispheric fisheye lens. The lens is secured by a lock ring. It is factory-aligned and quality-tested in the camera, which makes on-site camera focusing unnecessary in most cases. Due to extreme distortion when the camera is used with a hemispheric lens that is especially challenging where the adjustment of hardware and software is concerned, the L12 lens of this camera is not replaceable.

Hemispheric Technology

In combination with the hemispheric L12 lens (180° horizontal image angle), the M25M becomes a hemispheric camera. Thanks to the fisheye technology with integrated distortion correction, the camera with its L12 lens provides a wide overview. Meaningful 180° panorama images from wall-to-wall and from the floor to the ceiling don't leave any corners of the room unmonitored. The correction of the distorted hemispheric image happens directly in the camera and not on the computer, thus drastically reducing the size of the image before it is transferred and stored. This reduces the network load and allows the display of multiple hemispheric cameras on a computer or smartphone.

Software

Furthermore, you can use the MxEasy and MxControlCenter software free of charge and with an unlimited user and camera license. If required, the camera can be upgraded to function as a powerful intercom system by adding the MOBOTIX ExtIO module (available separately).

Virtual PTZ (vPTZ)-Without Motor

The vPTZ function (virtual Pan, Tilt, Zoom) is a standard feature in the integrated M25M camera software. The image from the hemispheric camera can be enlarged using, for example, the mouse wheel, a joystick, or a software-controlled PTZ panel (all available separately) and you can move the view to any section of the image. This provides the features of a mechanical PTZ camera without the disadvantages of maintenance and wear.

Depending on the platform used to operate the camera (Internet browser, MxEasy, MxControlCenter), the vPTZ function may work in a different manner. When using MxEasy or MxControlCenter, for example, specific software tools and an optional joystick make virtually zooming, panning and tilting much more comfortable. Even if you are using only Internet Explorer (with activated ActiveX plug-in), you can use an optionally attached joystick.

Internal DVR

The M25M-Secure features direct recording to the integrated microSD card, which makes the camera fully independent of any external storage media, even for longer periods of time. The camera internally stores high-resolution video, without requiring an external recording device or PC and therefore does not overload the network. Old recordings can be overwritten automatically or automatically deleted after a specified period of time. When using a 16GB SD card, for example, the camera can store more than a quarter million event images in VGA format (640 x 480). For security reasons, the camera can even encrypt the stored data.

Power failures are not an issue, since the video and image sequences remain safely stored on the SD card. Access to stored video sequences is possible at any time from the camera user interface in the browser, MxControlCenter, or MxEasy. If you would like to archive sequences, you can export the required data to a PC or USB stick for evidence purposes, for example.

MxActivitySensor Video Motion Analysis: Secure Detection, Avoiding False Alarms

Regardless if there are large objects in the foreground or small objects in the background, MxActivitySensor will only trigger video recording and alarm messaging if something important is happening. Interference such as trees shaking in the wind, moving shadows and clouds, and snow falling will not lead to false alarms. Since all of this is filtered automatically, all that remains is to set the direction of movement of objects that should trigger alarms.

High-Resolution 180° Panorama

When several cameras are monitoring a single room, it is difficult to understand the room layout due to the different viewing directions of each individual camera. This makes it hard to comprehend the overall setting. The panorama function of the camera with the L12 lens delivers a widescreen, corrected image of a high-resolution 180° allround view. With approximately 0.6MP (1280 x 480 pixels), the panorama image only requires a fraction of the original data volume or bandwidth of a QXGA full image (1280 x 1536 pixels). 1

Optimizing the M25M Panorama Image

In order to hide the protective cover in the panorama image, all that is often required is the panorama correction function, which has already been integrated into the camera software. Tilted vertical lines (if the camera is mounted at an angle) may be optically straightened to the image edges using this function. This makes the protective cover disappear from the image. Note: If this measure does not work in some special cases (camera tilt of approximately 0°), the protective cover can be removed from the image by zooming and, if necessary, by using the purely software-based downward panning function. The displayed image section or the panorama, as the case may be, is reduced slightly but the image details are enlarged as a result of zooming.

Panorama Focus-One Camera, Three Views

The M25M is capable of providing two more views simultaneously with the 180° panorama, allowing you to focus on two scenes in parallel (Panorama Focus display mode).

Double Panorama for a Simultaneous View in Two Directions

The Double Panorama display mode provides a panorama image of both halves of the area captured by the full image. Using the vPTZ functions, the panorama images can be changed as desired.

Surround View (Quad View)

The Surround display mode of the M25M replaces 4 cameras all at once and simultaneously delivers four different directions at a glance. If the camera is installed in the ceiling and is looking straight down, all 4 cardinal directions can be displayed.

Each of the four views features a software-controlled pan/tilt/zoom function (virtual PTZ), allowing it to be customized as necessary. In order to facilitate camera operation, the M25M can store, in addition to the preset standard views, a total of 256 user-defined camera views using the vPTZ function, which can easily be brought up using joystick keys or soft buttons. Besides being able to manually move the virtual camera to specific positions and zoom settings, the camera can also move automatically. It does so by moving through the standard views or by showing the first 16 saved camera views (one after the other like in a slide show).

Full Image and Normal View

In addition to Panorama, Double Panorama, Panorama Focus, and Surround views, the camera image can be displayed on a monitor as the original fisheye version (Full Image display mode) or as the camera-corrected image section (Normal display mode). Switching between display modes is possible at any time within seconds.

Robust and Maintenance-Free

Thanks to its low power consumption of about 4.5W and the complete absence of mechanically moving parts, the camera features a wide operating temperature range of -22 to +122°F. Since the camera neither fogs up nor requires heating, power can be supplied via the network cabling using standard PoE (IEEE 802.3af) products (available separately). Adjusting the PoE class via the camera software also enables the use of PoE switches that cannot be operated on all ports with PoE class 3 (up to 12.95V).

The camera is resistant against water jets and ingress of dust (IP66-rated). In combination with the supplied wall and ceiling mount, you can use the camera in outdoor applications and installation over flush-mounted sockets so that the cabling remains perfectly concealed.

Environment Friendly

Since the camera is supplied with PoE, the expenses for power are reduced and, in addition, copper and other important raw material use is also reduced as less power cabling is necessary. Thanks to the integrated flash storage, energy-consuming servers and storage devices become unnecessary.
