The German company MOBOTIX is known as the leading pioneer in network camera technology and its decentralized concept has made high-resolution video systems cost efficient.
Why Use High-Resolution Systems?
The higher the resolution, the more details are in an image. Using traditional (analogue) technology, a live image has
no more than 0.4 megapixels and a recorded image only has 0.1 megapixels (CIF). On the contrary, a MOBOTIX camera with 3.1 megapixels records around 30 times more detail. As a result, larger image areas with up to 360° panorama are possible, thus reducing the number of cameras and therefore the costs. For example, four lanes of a gas station can
be recorded using one MOBOTIX camera instead of four conventional cameras.
MOBOTIX video solutions therefore require significantly
- fewer cameras due to the more accurate detail of wide-angle images with megapixel technology,
- fewer PCs/DVRs, because around 40 cameras can store high-resolution video with sound efficiently on a single PC, or no PC at all when recording on the camera's digital storage (USB, SD card),
- lower network bandwidth, because everything is processed in the camera itself and the high-resolution images therefore do not have to be constantly transferred for analysis.
