The black MX-Q25M-SEC-D12-BL Q25 Hemispheric Network Camera from MOBOTIX is a compact IP65-rated weather-proof camera featuring a 5MP day (color) sensor and a 12mm fisheye lens. When mounted on the ceiling, the camera is capable of providing full 360° view, or a 180° widescreen panorama when mounted on a wall. Thus, a single camera is needed to monitor an entire room up to all four corners. The fisheye distortion is automatically corrected by the integrated camera software in live view. The monitoring capabilities offered by this hemispheric camera not only reduces the number of required cameras, but also minimizes system costs by reducing wiring complexity, emergency power requirements, and number of recording devices required.

The high-sensitivity 5MP sensor captures color images of good quality even in low-light conditions. The images are captured at resolutions up to 2048 x 1536 (QXGA), and you can also select to record in lower resolutions such as Full HD or 720p. The weatherproof MxBus and MiniUSB interfaces of the camera allow attaching MOBOTIX interface boxes and standard devices, such as 3G/UMTS modems and external storage devices (all available separately). The integrated flash memory (4GB microSD card included) provides secure long-term storage and eliminates the need for external storage devices.

Suitable for Discreet Installations
The camera is suitable for applications where a discreet design and an inconspicuous look are important. With the in-ceiling kit (available separately), the camera is suitable for use in hotels, restaurants, public buildings, waiting rooms, and showrooms.
Hemispheric Lens for a 360° View
When mounted on the ceiling, the camera is capable of providing a full 360° all-round view, or a 180° widescreen panorama when mounted on a wall.
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.
Surround View (Quad View)
When ceiling mounted, the Surround mode replaces four cameras and shows 4 directions simultaneously on the monitor in a quad view. The preset North position can be moved to any direction in the image. The camera generates the other three directions (East, South, West) automatically and stores them as separate views. Each of the 4 views features a software-controlled pan/tilt/zoom function (virtual PTZ), allowing it to be customized as necessary.
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.
Reduced Wiring Complexity
The hemispheric camera provides a combined view offered by multiple standard cameras. It not only reduces the number of required cameras, but also minimizes system costs by reducing the wiring complexity, emergency power requirements, and number of recording devices required.
Good Image Quality
The 5MP color sensor captures images of good quality even in bad weather and under low-light conditions. Thanks to its internal pre-processing of the image data, the camera can generate video streams with frame rates up to 30 fps.
MxLEO is an exposure and image optimization program that helps the camera reproduce perceptibly better and more detailed images especially under low-light conditions below 25 lux. It also reduces motion blur due to longer exposure times in low light and provides more image detail for effective identification of faces and license plates.
Regardless of large objects in the foreground or small objects in the background, MxActivitySensor triggers video recording and alarm messaging only if something important is happening. Interference such as trees shaking in the wind, moving shadows and clouds, and snow falling don't lead to false alarms. Since all of this is filtered automatically, only the direction of movement of objects that should trigger alarms has to be set.
Virtual PTZ (vPTZ)
The vPTZ functions are integrated into the camera software. The image from the hemispheric camera can be enlarged using the mouse wheel, a joystick, or a software-controlled PTZ panel, 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.
Simultaneous Corrected Live Image and Full Image Recording
The camera stores the entire image captured by the sensor (without virtual PTZ settings or image correction). When examining the recorded images, the virtual PTZ feature allows zooming into the visible image and use the pan/tilt features to examine every corner of the recorded full image.
Image Distortion Correction
The fisheye distortion is automatically corrected by the camera's built-in software. The PC doesn't bear this load as the image correction and generation of all desired image views take place in the camera itself.
Application-Oriented Image Transfer
The camera transmits only the desired image sections. Only a small part of the image is used, which reduces network usage.
Internal DVR
The camera saves high-resolution video with sound directly to the installed microSD card (4GB card included). This eliminates the need for an external storage device or PC, and doesn't utilize network bandwidth. Old recordings may be overwritten or deleted automatically after a specified period of time. Power failures are not an issue, as the video and image sequences remain safely stored on the microSD card.
Several Image Sections
One or more image sections can be corrected for perspective in the hemispheric view, allowing you to monitor and record several different areas of a room at the same time, something that a mechanical PTZ camera is not capable of doing.
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 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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
