Still offering analogue solutions, LiveView now also offer High Resolution solutions. High Resolution shows more detail and Reduces Costs. The higher the resolution, the more accurate the image detail. Whereas an analogue recorded image generally has no more than 0.1 megapixels (CIF), one single MOBOTIX camera with 3.1 megapixels records around 30 times more detail. As a result, larger image areas with up to 360deg all-round views are possible, thus reducing the number of cameras and therefore the costs. For example four lanes at a petrol station can be recorded with one MOBOTIX camera instead of four conventional analogue cameras.
MOBOTIX also offer innovative hemispherical technology. One single camera can monitor the whole 360 degrees of a room or 180 degree area in front of any building; home or business. Monitoring video from multiple cameras is difficult to track, with overlapping and often gaps between the camera’s field of view. MOBOTIX hemispheric technology can capture and deliver a single 180deg panaromic view with no overlapping or gaps.
The image shown above is from a single, discrete lens module mounted in a box shown in the centre of the picture below. The LED light and motion sensor above the lens provide a degree of light for night conditions.

Viewing is purely software, meaning no motors, no wear. With free PC, tablet or smartphone software you can zoom in on the detail. The vPTZ (virtual pan, tilt, zoom) functions are a standard feature in the integrated camera software. The image from the hemispheric camera can be enlarged using e.g. the mouse wheel, a joystick or a software-controlled PTZ panel, and you can "move" the view to any section of the image. This provides the features of a mechanical PTZ camera without the disadvantages of maintenance and wear.
The camera below was mounted above the entrance to a reception area and delivers a 180° view of the room both live and in recordings. The entire room is really shown from wall to wall, without any blind spots.
Although a premier IP CCTV brand there are many cost advantages to using MOBOTIX cameras based on their decentralised approach. Combining high resolution video with in-camera recording means fewer cameras are needed and direct recording to any type of storage device such as, in-camera SD card, Hard Disk or NAS drive is possible.
The systems are very scalable, as more cameras are added; just add more storage, nothing else. No dedicated servers or recording software licenses are needed. This means no server maintenance and no storage or scaling limitations.
As with other LiveView offerings live and recorded viewing from anywhere in the world is possible on PCs, tablets and smartphones. The MOBOTIX all-in-one platform turns a standard smartphone into an interactive mobile “control-room”, providing instant video playback, with on-demand 2-way audio and video communication with the camera’s surrounding environment – from anywhere in the world.
Whatever the CCTV need you can be sure that LiveView can help.
