MOBOTIX developed the first weatherproof web cam
with digital image sensors in 1999. The transmission of video streams
over computer networks has enabled video technology to depart from
the restrictions of the TV standard which has applied for 60 years.
MOBOTIX is currently the only IP
network camera manufacturer that is capable of storing smooth
high-resolution video streams with 1536 lines instead of the usual
288. The new technology has two decisive advantages: it is more
cost-effective than traditional CCTV video technology and more multi-functional
thanks to its integrated computer and network connection.
High Resolution - More Detail, Reduced Cost
The primary benefit of using high-resolution cameras
is that the stored images are more revealing and provide stronger
evidence than other formats. MOBOTIX cameras record approximately
30 times more detail than 95% of all existing video systems worldwide.
In most applications, one MOBOTIX camera
can replace several standard CCTV systems. The high-detail resolution
not only means fewer cameras, but it also reduces the amount of
cabling, backup-power requirement and storage systems, thus minimizing
the overall costs of the system.
