We often get questions about why the difference between Mobotix and other brands especially the ones produced in Asia. Clearly InSight has supplied and installed a number of brands over the years and here are a few of the reasons why we are now a Mobotix Advanced Partner.
We now sell a product that we know will work right out of the box and continue to give a decade and more of dependable security. They are designed to work for at least 80,000 hours.
A product that is designed to work in an environment from Antarctica to the Tropics. There are many examples of Mobotix cameras surviving incidences that destroy others such as recording right through a hurricane recently on the West coast of Mexico.
Remarkable clarity, up to 6MegaPixels. To put that in perspective your 720p (1,280 × 720) HDTV is .92MP and your 1080p (1920 x 1080) is just over 2MP.
Further about clarity, Mobotix has developed their own codec called MxPeg designed for video security. The standard H.264 was developed for Hollywood movies and does work well until you need a still picture. Remember how you paused your VCR and the picture shook? That hasn’t changed. If you need to see a face, a license plate or even a bee’s wing when hovering in front of the camera MxPeg is by far the better method.
Environmental concerns including energy reduction are important issues. Mobotix has been designed to be the greenest security system using about 30% of the energy other system use. That is 70% less energy 24/7/365. The difference in power usage is like the difference between a 100watt incandescent light bulb and a 30watt LED light bulb.
These are just a few of the differences. In future articles of Talking Mobotix look for more information on the benefits and reasons why Mobotix is #1 in IP Video Security.
