The New Benchmark in Lowlight for Objects in Motion
Outstanding Light Sensitivity With 6MP Sensor Technology = MOBOTIX Moonlight Technology
The brand-new MOBOTIX 6MP cameras have an outstanding increase of light sensitivity of more than 100-times than the former 3MP cameras. The monochrome version reaches even a 300-times higher sensitivity than the previous series. Instead of one full second of exposure time the new 6MP systems can select only 1/100 s which results in capturing even fast moving objects in low light conditions.
Short Exposure Times are Essential
In security monitoring every moment and therefore every single frame of a video recording has to be as sharp as possible. For moving objects this implies the necessity of short instead of long exposure times. Unfortunately a short exposure time of 1/100 s grabs 10-times less light than a 1/10 s. Especially in low light conditions, the lens, the image sensor itself and the image processing for sure have to be very sophisticated to generate a sharp and crisp image of the moving object.
Only a Sharp Image is a Proof
In dark scenes long exposure times of up to 1 second create bright images and visible static objects. Perfect to acknowledge objects in darkness. But if objects are moving, long exposure times will create blurring or ghost images, and make verification of moving objects nearly impossible.In security applications moving objects are of utmost importance, therefore short exposure times are essential to understand what‘s going on. Some manufacturers are using a combination of technologies like adding frames to generate a brighter image (e. g. Lightfinder, HDR, etc.). However, with this adding and overlaying of subsequent frames, small details or objects in the scene could be suppressed or distorted, which is inacceptable in security applications.
Optimized for Best Performance
This huge increase in light sensitivity was achieved by several means: wider sensor with bigger pixels to catch more light, a hardware noise reduction filter directly at the sensor, a new sophisticated lens with a better light transmission, and an improved image processing software reducing the noise of low light images. This is called the new MOBOTIX Moonlight Technology.
Automatic Temperature Alarms • Incl. 6MP Moonlight
MOBOTIX has perfectly combined thermal and optical sensor technology with an intelligent onboard video sensor "MxActivitySensor" to detect objects and persons in complete darkness over hundreds of meters automatically. Recently, MOBOTIX provided a software update free of charge to upgrade existing thermal cameras with thermal spot metering in the image center. This allows absolute temperature measurement within the total range of -40 °C to +550 °C and a typical accuracy of ±10 °C.
On top, MOBOTIX has launched a new series of thermal radiometry (TR) models (M15, S15, S15 PTMount) to generate automatic alarms, defined by temperature limits or temperature ranges, which is vital to detect potential fire or heat sources. Up to 20 different temperature triggers can be easily defined within the new TR (Thermal Radiometry) window or the whole sensor image can be used with a typical accuracy of ±10 °C. MOBOTIX thermal dual camera systems offer also thermal overlay to localize the hot spot in the visual image and to prevent bigger damages. The standard Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) compatibility and the market leading low power consumption of only 6 watt allows operation of MOBOTIX thermal camera systems in every situation.
Cost Effective Perimeter Solution
Only one thermal MOBOTIX camera is required to protect a huge outdoor area without the need of any additional illumination. The combination of thermal, video sensor and intelligent software based motion detection like MxActivitySensor are perfectly suited to cover wide perimeter situations efficiently without any secondary equipment like IR-conventional light or additional sensors even in complete darkness.
A thermal camera can guarantee perfect privacy in exclusive residence situations or in public areas. This privacy feature will help to increase the acceptance of video surveillance in public and sensitive environments like pool areas, hospitality or sport facilities.
A MOBOTIX dual camera system can automatically switch from thermal sensor to the optical sensor, producing visible high resolution video in the case a moving object was detected within a certain predefined area of interest or non-privacy zone. This unique MOBOTIX feature
combines two aspects, first to ensure the privacy aspect during standard video monitoring, but secondly gives full access to high resolution video in the case of relevant or critical events like motion.
Achieve unique advantages thanks to the combination of MxActivitySensor 2.0 and the event logic of MOBOTIX:
•Detects motion in predefined areas and notifies relevant and important events
•Differentiates objects depending on size and perspective, thus reducing false alarms caused by birds and small animals
•Reduces false alarms caused by rain, snow or shaking trees and camera poles
•Enables an event based recording and reduces storage and bandwidth requirements
•In the case of an alarm, the camera reacts autonomously and for example, can notify security services, broadcast an audio message or can switch on any illumination.
•In order to restrict relevant security events even further, it is possible to combine other sensor technologies
•Easy configuration via reference windows in near and far distance range
•This 3D motion detection is a standard feature in every non-hemispheric camera from 2017 onwards and available for all x14/24 and x15/25 models via firmware upgrade.
Whether large objects in the foreground or small ones in the background, MxActivitySensor only records video or triggers an alarm if an important event actually occurs. Interference caused, for instance, by trees moving in the wind, shadows, passing clouds or snowfall is consistently ignored. Automatic configuration means only the objects' direction of movement needs to be selected.
Count People And Objects (Counting Corridors)
You can define counting corridors in appropriate locations in the camera feed to find out, for example, how many people walk in and out of each entrance of a shop over the course of a week (the system always generates two counts). The camera records how often each counting corridor is crossed within a specified period. The reliability of the count depends (a) on the similarity of the sizes and shapes of the persons or objects in the image, (b) on the distance between these (in terms or time or spatial distance), (c) on how effectively they can be visually distinguished from the underlying back-ground, and (d) how close the counting corridor is to the center of the image (camera focus).
"Undesired" motion patterns of objects and people can now trigger events, when using a 6MP camera c25, Q25 and S15M in-ceiling installations:
•Corridor: If an object crosses a defined counting corridor, an event is triggered (e.g. for recording, alarm triggering and/or notification)
•Duration of stay: Object/person exceeds a defined time staying in the image area
•Opposite direction: Object moves against main direction
•Turn: Object changes direction between 45° and 135°
•U-Turn: Object suddenly reverses direction
•Speed: Object/person exceeds the defined speed (m/s)
The enlarged image section shows a counting corridor of a reception area, indicated by two yellow arrows with a total of three counting corridors. Since the counting started, 264 objects crossed the corridor (green number) and 370 crossed in the opposite direction (red number).
All movements of objects of a particular size are recorded and evaluated, either in the live image or in a previously defined detection area, to provide answers to questions like these. The frequency of the movements is shown visually by means of different colors in a heat map. The areas with the most movement are shown in red, and those with little movement in blue.
