Overview of the Mobotix Q25

The Mobotix Q25 is a 360 hemispheric camera with great light sensitivity and advanced on-board functionality.

It includes efficient on-camera video recording and storage, as well as intelligent video analytics for more reliable and accurate alarm detection. The design aims to improve Mobotixs' concept of de-centralised (at the edge) image processing and management, which is economical on bandwidth use and does not require the deployment of an expensive recording or management server. In addition to on-camera recording, NAS storage is also supported, making Mobotix cameras suitable for installations of any size and allowing easy system expansion over time.

Ultra-compact and weatherproof, the Q25 can be installed indoor as well as outdoor able to deliver high resolution 360 all-round views of small and large spaces (when ceiling-mounted) or wide 180 panoramic views (when wall-mounted), whilst on-camera 'de-warping' of the 'fish-eyed' image provides a fully usable quad view from all four directions simultaneously (i.e. four individual views are generated from the single fish-eyed image). The camera's digital pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) function works very well within such wide area coverage, allowing the user to zoom in on any specific area of the scene observing real-time activity in detail whilst the full scene is being recorded in the background at the same time. This ensures that no activity in the camera's hemispheric field of view will be missed, providing 100% CCTV coverage at all times. Digital PTZ can also be used when analysing recorded footage, enabling detailed scrutiny of evidence.

Featuring a 6 megapixel 1/2.5" progressive scan CMOS sensor, Lowlight Exposure Optimization technology and backlight compensation, the Q25M-SEC hemispheric camera provides enhanced light sensitivity with minimal motion blur and image noise, producing clear high resolution 6 megapixel full colour video of the whole scene at 20 frames per second (fps). The Mobotix Q25M-SEC also features an integrated microphone and speaker, which can be used to automatically play a pre-recorded warning message on motion trigger, record lip-sync audio or function as an intercom system allowing two way conversation.

Further usability is provided by the camera's advanced Mobotix MxActivitySensor intelligent video capability, which out-of-the box (i.e. without time-consuming configuration and adjustments) can 'learn' the scene and over time is able to distinguish between environmental noise elements (such as shadows or light changes, swaying trees or rain) and activity caused by humans or moving vehicles (e.g. in a car park). This smart piece of on-camera software delivers highly accurate alert detection, significantly reducing false alarms, which not only removes a lot of nuisance but also significantly saves on storage space since undesirable footage from false alarms no longer will be recorded, not in any large amounts anyway. With all the video analytics processing and recording of footage taking place on the camera ifself (at the edge), no bandwidth is used for these functions to take place, contrary to the constant data transfer that takes place when using a server-based (central) video management system. In addition to on-camera video storage, recording can also take place directly from the camera to a NAS, making a Mobotix system cost-effective when scaling up.

Using a Mobotix camera system is easy through the freely downloadable MXControlCenter video management software suitable for larger camera systems or the freely available MXEasy software suited to smaller systems up to 16 cameras. Essentially, both these software products act as a client and provide a user-friendly interface, whilst the processor intensive tasks and video recording is taking place on the cameras, meaning that both MXControlCenter and MXEasy can be run on a standard PC. MXEasy is also available for MAC and Linux. Mobile access with a number of handy features is available for iOS using the Mobotix App.

The ultra-compact, low profile Mobotix Q25 has PoE support for easy installation. IP65-rated, the Q25 camera can be used outdoors and it can withstand temperatures down to -30° without the need for an additional heater, keeping power consumption to a minimum. Core to the Mobotix concept is that there are no moving parts, fans or heaters in any of its cameras, improving reliability and durability.

Please note: no power supply included with this camera. Please use the above drop down menu to select a PoE midspan, if required.

Key features & benefits

  • Provides 360 hemispheric or 180 panoramic very wide area coverage, reducing the number of cameras required to monitor an area and therefore offering significant cost-savings, both in terms of hardware cost as well as cost of installation and maintenance
  • 6 megapixel sensor producing high-quality, clear and detailed video at 20 frames per second (or 30fps at 2 megapixel resolution)
  • Digital PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) provides effective area coverage with close-up viewing of an area of interest in high detail, whilst the full width of the scene is being recorded at any time to prevent activity from being missed; auto-touring also available, allowing the camera to move between programmed views of interest
  • Mobotix MxLEO (Lowlight Exposure Optimization) enhances low light performance and sharpness with minimum motion blur and image noise by using the unused 2,000,000 pixels (approx) on the 6 megapixel sensor to improve light capture
  • Mobotix MxActivitySensor intelligent video motion detection built into the camera can 'learn' a scene and reduces false alarms, increasing accuracy and reliability of alarm triggers, whilst also saving on storage space
  • De-centralised system with video processing and recording taking place on the camera (at the edge), reducing bandwidth usage and negating the need for a high specification recording server
  • MxControlCenter and MxEasy management software included free of charge, only requiring a basic PC to run on. No need to invest in additional video management software or expensive server infrastructure. Software updates are free of charge.
  • Mac and Linux compatible when using MxEasy management software, suitable for systems up to 16 cameras
  • Mobotix App available for mobile access from iOS devices, featuring a multi-camera view and access to live and recorded video footage
  • Suitable for any system size, from one stand-alone camera operation to enterprise-level installation incorporating tens or hundreds of cameras
  • 4 modes of compression provide flexible bandwidth and storage management (MxPEG, M-JPEG, JPEG and H.264 (SIP only)
  • 4GB MicroSD card included (higher capacity storage cards available - please select from above drop down menu)
  • An integrated speaker and microphone provide two-way audio communication plus also the capability to automatically play a warning message when triggered by detection
  • IP66-rated casing enables the camera to be used outside. Housing made from high-resistance composite (PBT)
  • No moving parts or heaters: reducing power consumption, increasing durability and lowering maintenance costs
  • PoE supports reduces installation time and costs
  • Bracket included for wall and ceiling mounting. Cable fully concealed through a hidden cable channel.
