MOBOTIX M12 overview

  • 1Description

The MOBOTIX M12 DualNight Surveillance Camera (Day Lens: 135mm, Night Lens: 43mm) has two integrated image sensors and two lenses. Depending on the illumination, the camera automatically selects the color image sensor with daylight lens or the more light-sensitive B/W image sensor with IR lens to record the images. With a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels (day sensor) the resolution of the M12 is about 31 times as high as the CIF images from an analog camera. When delivering 3 MEGA (2048 x 1536), MEGA (1280 x 960), VGA (640 x 480) and CIF (320 x 240) images, this camera reaches 8 zoom levels with a low network load (MxPEG: about 1 Mbit, CIF 25 fps). Bidirectional audio, video motion detection and a passive IR sensor are also integrated. The Ethernet, ISDN, and RS232 interfaces of the camera comply with current IT standards, including GSM/GPRS/UMTS (3G).

Digital zoom, panning, video motion detection, event-controlled frame rates, and freely selectable image sections reduce the storage requirements of the M12 to a minimum. The integrated camera software features include alarm management with pre- and post-alarm images, FTP, e-mail, external ring buffer storage on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X computers as well as playback and MultiView functions for up to 40 cameras in the browser. Since the camera does not require additional heating, power can be supplied via the network cabling even in winter. The temperature range is from -22 to 140°F (-30 to 60°C). An ISDN modem is integrated as well.

Live images of up to 1280 x 960 pixels resolution via network, ISDN, GSM, GPRS, UMTS, wireless up to 30 fps (at 640 x 480 resolution), also adapted for PDAs
Digital zoom with three stages (1x, 2x, 4x) and integrated panning (from 2x: clicking in the browser image will move the visible image section in that direction)
True software scaling using the proven and continuously improved MOBOTIX algorithms which delivers brilliant images even with smaller image formats (e.g. 320 x 240)
Audio video recording with three different recording modes: Event recording with audio, continuous recording with variable frame rate and audio as well as event-controlled Snap Shot recording of JPEG images
Telephony functions (SIP and ISDN) for Phone Call-In and remote-controlling from touchtone phones as well as voice phone calls from the camera for alarm messaging purposes
SIP Video (Internet telephony) with support for e.g. Windows Messenger, x-lite/eyebeam and video phones
File server tests can monitor a file server and use one or more of the defined messaging options for error notification
Camera tests where several cameras monitor each other, with failure notification using the defined messaging options
Playback of recorded images/video sequences with audio in the integrated video management system
MultiView screen for displaying multiple cameras or events in one browser window
Event notification by e-mail, SMS (using a provider), voice notification by phone using pre-recorded messages, sounds and by visual alarms (e.g. red frame in Live image) using two separate messaging paths
Object tracing for analyzing the paths of objects that are moving in the image
Logo generator for displaying logos in the camera images with dialogs for managing image files, image and logo profiles for controlling logo display
Logos can have transparent areas and can be displayed partially transparent at the same time (creating a watermark effect), banner rotation and animations are also possible
Time Tables for handling customized days like holidays and vacations. The time tables are used to control the camera's arming, image recording, action, messaging, logo, obscure image and other features
Remote signaling for master/slave cameras, with the master camera controlling the arming status of the slave cameras, allowing you to arm all slave cameras using a key switch that is connected to the master camera
Transfer profiles for improved handling of FTP, E-Mail, phone calls, network transmissions and messages
Multiple possibilities for connecting external devices, sensors and signal lines using the D Sub 15 HD socket of the camera or the MOBOTIX Cam-IO installation box
Speaker phone with talk, listen and intercom modes via Internet telephony (SIP) and ISDN using the integrated microphone and speaker
Phone Call-In to remotely control the camera using a touchtone phone via Internet telephony (SIP) and ISDN (retrieve camera information, establish Internet connection, announcement of retrieved IP address, intercom feature, etc.)
MxPEG video compression using MOBOTIX MxControlCenter. The ActiveX plug-in for Internet Explorer users brings all advantages of MxPEG (including the audio stream from and to the camera) to the browser-based user interface
Routing allows using other network connections besides the standard route
DynDNS client for accessing the camera using a symbolic name (e.g. although the provider is assigning a new IP address every time the camera connects to the Internet
Inerasable backup operating system that is used to restart the camera in the event that a software update has failed, allowing you to restart the update process
Enhanced startup options for the camera (obtain IP address via DHCP, announcement of IP address and other network data, reset to factory default settings)
IP65 weatherproof rating
