HiRes Video Innovations
The German company MOBOTIX AG is known as the leading pioneer in network camera
technology since its founding in 1999, and its decentralized concept has made highresolution video systems cost-efficient. Whether in embassies, airports, railway stations,
ports, gas stations, hotels, or on highways - over one hundred thousand MOBOTIX
video systems have been in operation on every continent for years.
7HFKQRORJ\/HDGHU2I1HWZRUN&DPHUDV
In a short time, MOBOTIX has gained the second place in Europe and the fourth place
worldwide in terms of market share. MOBOTIX has been producing megapixel cameras
exclusively for years and, in this area, ranks as the global market leader in high-resolution
video systems with a market share of over 60%.
:K\+LJK5HVROXWLRQ6\VWHPV"
The higher the resolution, the more accurate the detail in the image. With the old analog
technology, a live image has no more than 0.4 megapixels, and a recorded image generally 0.1 megapixels (CIF). Yet, one MOBOTIX camera with 3.1 megapixels records around
30 times more detail. This means that greater image areas, including 360° panoramas,
are possible, while still reducing the number of cameras, and thereby also the costs. For
example, four lanes of a gas station may be recorded with a single MOBOTIX camera,
instead of the four standard cameras normally necessary for such a task.
'LVDGYDQWDJHV2I7KH2OG&HQWUDOL]HG6ROXWLRQ
Usually, cameras only supply images, while processing and recording take place later on a
central PC using video management software. This traditional centralized structure has many
limitations, since it requires high network bandwidth and the PC processing power is insufficient
when using several cameras. An HDTV MPEG-4 film already puts considerable strain on a PC,
how can it be expected to process dozens of high-resolution live cameras? Traditional centralized systems are therefore
less suitable and more
costly than high-resolution
systems due to the high
number of PCs required.
ũ02%27,;$*š6HFXULW\9LVLRQ6\VWHPVš0DGHLQ*HUPDQ\
ZZZPRERWL[FRPšVDOHV#PRERWL[FRP
7KH'HFHQWUDOL]HG02%27,;&RQFHSW
Unlike other systems, with the decentralized MOBOTIX concept a high-speed computer
and, if requested, digital memory (MicroSD/SD card) is built into every camera for longterm recording. The PC now serves purely for viewing, not for analysis or recording. As a
result, MOBOTIX cameras can record in response to an event, even without the PC being
switched on, and digitally store the videos with sound.
7KH%HQHıWV
MOBOTIX video solutions therefore require significantly:
š IHZHUFDPHUDVdue to the more accurate detail of panoramic images with megapixel technology,
š IHZHU3&V'95V, because around 40 cameras can store high-resolution videos with
sound efficiently on a single PC, or no PC at all when recording in the camera using
digital memory (USB, MicroSD/SD card),
š ORZHUQHWZRUNEDQGZLGWK, because everything is processed in the camera itself
and the high-resolution images therefore do not have to be constantly transported
for analysis.
5REXVW$QG/RZ0DLQWHQDQFH
MOBOTIX cameras have no mechanical motors for lenses or for movement. Without any
moving parts, they are therefore so robust that maintenance is reduced to a minimum.
The unique temperature range from -30°C to +60°C (-22°F to +140°F) is achieved without
heating or a fan at approximately 4 watts. Since no PC hard drive is necessary for recording, there are no parts that wear out in the entire video system.
6RIWZDUH,QFOXGHG)RU/LIH
There are no software or licensing costs with MOBOTIX because the software is always
supplied with the camera for an unlimited number of cameras and users. The software
package supplied with the camera also includes professional control room software similar
to those used in soccer stadiums, for example. Updates are supplied free of charge on
the website. The system price for a weatherproof camera, including lens, query software,
and day-to-day recording on the MicroSD/SD card, is under 1,000 euro.

An entire
e
room can be effectively monitored with innovative MOBOTIX Hemispheric Technology.
For instance, one single hemispheric camera replaces the time-consuming and expensive installation of several standard cameras. The first of its kind in the world, this
camera is evidence of the MOBOTIX commitment to innovation as the global leader
in megapixel video security systems.
+LJK5HVROXWLRQƓ3DQRUDPD
M24M with special
L11 lens and hemispheric technology
When several cameras are monitoring a single room, it is difficult to understand the
room layout in its single view. This makes it hard to comprehend the overall setting. The
new panorama function of the M24M delivers a widescreen image of a high-resolution
180° allround view. High image quality is achieved through the use of a 3.1 megapixel
sensor and the new hemispheric lens.

vPTZ control, also

The M24M also zooms in on detail. The
image of the Hemispheric camera can be
continuously enlarged and any image section
examined using a joystick, for example.
Thus you have a mechanical PTZ-camera
without maintenance or wear and tear.
While zooming into a section in the live
image, a full image can be stored in the
recording for later analysis. No PTZ-camera
in the world that operates with a motor
can do that!

The surround function of the M24M (ceiling mounted) immediately replaces four conventional cameras and shows four different directions simultaneously in quad view on a
monitor. Virtual PTZ is available for each of the four views. Together with the 180° panorama
the M24M can deliver two more views simultaneously, making it possible to see the
overview and to focus on two scenes at the same time (Display Mode “Panorama Focus“).

The full image from a hemispheric lens (Fisheye) is difficult to analyze. MOBOTIX solves this
problem by perfectly straightening the uneven lines in the live image using the camera
software. Since the image distortion correction of the hemispheric view and the generating
of the panoramic view take place in the camera itself, no additional load is placed on the
viewer PC, unlike a “standard” camera. Thus, displaying a large number of panoramic
cameras simultaneously on a single PC is possible.
+LJKO\(ĴFLHQW,PDJH7UDQVIHUULQJ
While other camera systems always transfer the full images via the network for further
analysis, a MOBOTIX camera sends only the relevant image sections. Therefore, a Q24M
panorama image needs only about 1/6 of the original data volume or bandwidth. This
means up to six times more MOBOTIX cameras can transfer images over a network
compared to “standard” cameras.
,QWHUQDO'95:LWKb*%
The M24M stores high-resolution video with sound directly on the integrated Flash memory
without using an external recording device or PC, therefore using no additional network
load. Old recordings can be overwritten automatically or deleted after a predefined period.
The storage capacity is sufficient for around 400,000 panorama images or 33 hours of
film (32 GB MicroSD).

These days, video data is normally pre-processed and stored centrally on a PC or DVR
using video management software. Video and audio streams from all installed cameras
are directed to this central device. This system is comparable to a highway at rush hour:
the more cameras there are, the faster a data jam on the PC or DVR occurs. This means
that despite HiRes cameras, the data is generally not stored in high-resolution format.

The MOBOTIX Flash file system (MxFFS) prevents unauthorized persons from reading or
transferring the internally stored data, even if the card is stolen.
The MOBOTIX system includes three important
additional options that allow more data to be
stored for a longer time:
š Only the relevant image sections are stored
instead of the entire image (for example,
sky or ceiling is removed)
š Video recording only begins when relevant
events occur (such as movement in the image)
š Temporarily increased frame rate during
continuous recording of events
By connecting external memory over the network
(NAS), the system can be expanded without limitations, even while it is running.

The real added value of MOBOTIX products is reflected in
characteristics such as enhanced functionality, ORQJOLIH
and robustness. In general, MOBOTIX cameras have no
moving parts. This makes the cameras very resistant to
wear and tear, and reduces both maintenance costs and
power consumption.

The security barriers that are built into the camera are extremely secure. The camera
images are only accessible to authorized persons and are encrypted via SSL when they
are transferred over the network.

In the event of an alarm, MOBOTIX cameras can turn on their built-in microphones and
record lip-synchronous sound. They are therefore an even greater help in analyzing a
situation and easing clarification. In addition, the video system can be used for bidirectional
communication via a loudspeaker/microphone.

MOBOTIX cameras are not adversely affected by the glare from direct sunlight. They
deliver meaningful, detailed images all the time because the camera software supports
easy programming of independent H[SRVXUHZLQGRZV to cope with specific situations.
This makes them ideal for rooms with large glass fronts.

One M24M camera equipped with a hemispheric or standard wide angle lens is usually
all that is required to monitor either an entire room or the four lanes of a gas station. The
high degree of image detail not only reduces the number of required cameras, but also
minimizes system costs by reducing the wiring complexity, emergency power requirements
and number of recording devices required. All M24M cameras feature direct recording to
integrated MicroSD cards or external USB drives and can therefore be used in standalone
operation with no additional network load.

MOBOTIX M24M cameras are suitable for use in large-scale facilities, such as airports,
given their unlimited scalability and high performance. However, they are equally suitable
for use in small commercial or private buildings thanks to their integrated event, storage,

The 006HF&69DULR is an M24M model that is shipped with a CS mount and a
compact //9DULROHQV. To protect the lens against the weather, this model
comes with a longer lens cover with an integrated glass pane which includes threads for
an external filter. This cover is suitable for lenses with a maximum diameter of 36 mm
and a maximum length of 43 mm. Because of the image sensor's size of 1/2", CS and C
mount lenses for 1/2" sensors or larger that are designed for megapixel image sensors
can be used. In comparison with MOBOTIX fixed lenses, Vario lenses are less robust and
less reliable in the long run. For this reason, Vario lenses are typically used in applications
where recording conditions change frequently, for example, intermittent surveillance of
construction sites.

M24M Overview
<RXFDQFKDQJH all M24M lenses on site whenever necessary (except the hemispheric
L11 lens). Each lens is secured by a lock ring. The ordered lens is factory-aligned and
quality-tested in the camera, which makes on-site camera focusing unnecessary in most
cases. Each M24M is available for delivery with a lens of your choosing or no lens at all.
The image area captured by the camera varies depending on the selected lens (see
Section 1.5). With a 6XSHU:LGH$QJOHOHQV/ZLWKƓ, for example, almost an entire
room can be recorded from just one corner. A /7HOHOHQV enables an M24M with a
high-resolution 3.1 megapixel sensor to clearly record a license plate number, for example, from a distance of approximately 75 meters.

with an L11 or L22

The M24M can also zoom in on detail as well. This vPTZ function (virtual Pan, Tilt, Zoom)
is a standard feature in the integrated M24M camera software. The image from the
hemispheric camera can be enlarged using, for example, 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.

All conventional, motorized PTZ cameras only store the image that is currently viewed as
the live image (OLYHLPDJHUHFRUGLQJ). This has one serious disadvantage as the recording can only show what has happened in the "visible" portion of the image; the rest is
lost and cannot be examined later on. For this reason, MOBOTIX has added the new IXOO
LPDJHUHFRUGLQJ feature to the M24M. This will not store the currently viewed image that
reflects the pan/tilt position and the zoom setting chosen by the user, but the full sensor
image – without vPTZ settings. When examining the recorded images at a later date, the
vPTZ features again come into play, as they allow the visible image to be zoomed and
use the pan/tilt features to examine every corner of the recorded full image.
([DPSOHThe two people indicated by the red circles in the middle image would not have
been recorded by a regular PTZ camera. The full image recording of the M24M allows
you to determine, for example, the exact time at which these people entered the image
area recorded by the camera. A browser, MxControlCenter and MxEasy can be used to
examine the recorded sequences.
Integrated vPTZ functions allow the complete
stored full image to be
analyzed at a later point
in time (in MxEasy and
MxControlCenter)

The M24M features direct recording to integrated MicroSD cards,
which makes the camera fully independent of any external storage media, even for longer periods of time. The camera internally
stores high-resolution video, without requiring an external recording device or PC and therefore without overloading the network
whatsoever. Old recordings may be overwritten automatically or
automatically deleted after a specified period of time. A 32 GB
MicroSD card, for example, allows the camera to store more than
half a million event images in VGA format (640 x 480). For security
reasons, the camera can even encrypt the stored data (available
in future software versions). Power failures are not an issue, as the
video and image sequences remain safely stored on the MicroSD card. Access to stored
video sequences is possible at any time from the camera user interface in the browser,
MxControlCenter or MxEasy. If you would like to archive sequences, you can export the
required data to a PC or USB stick for evidence purposes, for example.

Equipped with the 180° L11 lens, an entire room can be ideally monitored using just one
M24M, which replaces the time-consuming and expensive installation of several standard
cameras. The overview image provided by a single M24M, which may be personalized in
a number of ways according to specific user requirements, not only reduces the number of
required cameras, but also minimizes the system costs by reducing the wiring complexity,
emergency power requirements and number of recording devices required.
//HQV+LJK5HVROXWLRQƓ3DQRUDPD
When several cameras are monitoring a single room, it is difficult to understand the room
layout due to the different viewing directions of each individual camera. This makes it hard
to comprehend the overall setting. The new panorama function of the M24M with the
L11 lens delivers a widescreen, corrected image of a high-resolution 180° allround view.
High image quality is achieved through the use of a 3.1 megapixel color sensor and the
new hemispheric lens of the M24M.
With approximately 0.6 megapixels (1280 x 480 pixels), an M24M panorama image only
requires a fraction of the original data volume or bandwidth of a 3.1 megapixel full image
(1280 x 1536 pixels).

the "panorama correction" function, which has already been integrated into the camera
software (controlling the camera via a web browser). Tilted vertical lines (if the camera is
mounted at an angle) may be optically straightened to the image edges using this function (see Section 3.5). A welcome side effect of this is that the protective cover disappears

While MxControlCenter has been providing virtual PTZ features for some time now, these
features are now available directly in the MOBOTIX camera. This means that you can
continuously zoom into or out of the live image using either the mouse wheel or a joystick.
When storing images or video sequences, you can choose to store either the visible image
area of the live image or the full sensor image (full image storage). This also allows you
to examine parts of an image or video that had not been visible in the live image section
on display at the time of the recording.
$XWRPDWLF,PDJH&RUUHFWLRQ2QO\:LWK/2U//HQVHV
Another problem familiar from the field of photography are the distortions that result from
using wide angle lenses. Straight lines near the image borders are curved. The integrated
distortion correction features of the camera (and of MxControlCenter) allow the curve of
various lenses to be corrected using software functions.
/LYH9LGHR:LWK8S7RISV,QFOXGLQJ$XGLR
MOBOTIX cameras deliver smooth live video with lip-synchronous audio, yet they keep
network load to a minimum. Some analog systems may also be able to deliver this, but the
recording quality is so much higher with MOBOTIX since the cameras efficiently store the
high, live image resolution and frame rate without compromising image quality. MOBOTIX
technology thus provides for continuous recording of simultaneous video from 30 cameras
at 30 frames per second each, including audio, all on one standard PC.
9HU\/RZ1HWZRUN/RDG
MOBOTIX's patent-pending VWUHDPLQJIRUPDW0[3(* enables fast live video with audio
at extremely low network load (1 to 2 Mbps). Since the MOBOTIX camera itself detects
movements in the image (and not the computer), video sequences are only transmitted
when they are being stored externally.

Moreover, MxPEG provides for lip-synchronous live audio and two-way communication
between the camera and a computer. Room surveillance is possible using a browser
(Internet Explorer), MxControlCenter, or MxEasy. Customized alarm notification on your
mobile phone or via Internet telephony is just as easy as event-controlled voice messages
directly from the camera.

Video SIP allows audio/video connections to
be established to the camera using Windows
Messenger or similar applications (for example,
CounterPath X-Lite/Eyebeam). This feature also
allows the camera to be remote controlled
using the phone keys and the camera itself
can place phone calls in case of alarms.

MOBOTIX cameras have an integrated long-term storage system for Linux, Windows, and
Mac OS X computers. Every camera manages its own ring buffer storage to a shared
folder. Thanks to this decentralized approach, 30 live cameras can store images of up to
30 frames per second each, including audio, on a single computer.

MOBOTIX cameras support direct storage on an internal MicroSD/SD/CF card (Basic models
excluded). By using this integrated flash card DVR, the camera is able to offer the following
additional applications:
š Standalone use of the camera without a file server by recording to the MicroSD card
š High-security application with recording on a file server or NAS/SAN in which the
SD card serves as storage buffer. It can thus bridge longer network or file server
failures without losing any video sequences (supported in a future software version).
š Event downloads from the MicroSD card for evaluation of the recorded sequences
on a computer

Just like triggering event-controlled recording upon detecting movements in the image,
the camera can also record when the volume detected by the microphone exceeds a
certain trigger value. Using scheduled daily recording, time tasks can start or stop video
recording, upload images to a website, or send e-mails with video/audio clips. Vacation
times and holidays can be programmed.

In case of an alarm, MOBOTIX cameras can automatically pop up windows or activate
other functions at a remote security control center. The cameras can use network/wi-fi,
GSM/GPRS/UMTS (3G), or Internet connections for this purpose.

No heating required
– PoE is no problem,
even in winter
Power is supplied as Power over Ethernet via the network cabling using the MOBOTIX NPAPoE-Set or from a PoE-compatible switch (both according to the IEEE 802.3af PoE standard).
Caution
Previous MOBOTIX network power accessories such as the NPA Set, Power Box,
and Power Rack (MX-NPA-Set, MX-NPR-4, and MX-NPR8/20) are not suitable for
use with the M24M.
No heating is necessary thanks to the well-insulated plastic housing and anti-fogging
properties. Due to their low power consumption (approximately 3 watts), MOBOTIX cameras, unlike those of other manufacturers, may be operated both indoors and outdoors
using a PoE power supply.

Notes
The specified focal lengths of MOBOTIX lenses do not reflect the actual focal length
of the lenses, but the focal length (Lxx mm) converted to 35 mm camera format. For
example, the MOBOTIX L22 Super Wide Angle lens has an actual focal length of
4 mm. This would be the equivalent of 22 mm on a 35 mm camera. It is therefore
referred to as an L22. Since the image sensors in digital cameras have different
sizes, converting the focal lengths to 35 mm camera as a known format allows the
image formats and the fields of vision of the different lenses to be calculated and
compared more easily. Another benefit is that you can easily set a 35 mm camera
(analog or digital) to the same focal length as the MOBOTIX lens (Lxx) to obtain the
same field of vision. This approach greatly facilitates lens selection.

can be installed. An M24M can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications. In fixed
or mobile applications - constantly changing locations or in/on vehicles of any kind. The
M24M cameras have been certified ZHDWKHUSURRIDFFRUGLQJWR,3 and can work reliably in temperature ranges from -30 °C to +60°C (-22°F to +140°F) without extra housing,
heating or fan. A practical sun protective cover is integrated into the extremely resistant
housing, which is made of UV-resistant special-purpose plastic.
Thanks to the camera’s unique VarioFlex mounting system (supplied as standard), the
M24M camera can be mounted quickly and easily on any wall, ceiling or even a round
pole of up to 18 cm in diameter (when combined with the stainless steel pole mount). The
VarioFlex mounting system allows a wide positioning range in both the horizontal and
vertical directions (rotating and tilting) to enable precise adjustment to suit the area to
be monitored. 7KHPRXQWDOVRıWVGLUHFWO\RYHUIJXVKPRXQWHG5-VRFNHWVZLWKRXW

Weather protection
The VarioFlex mount consists of a central joint, which is directly screwed into place with
the weatherproof housing, and a wall and ceiling mount, which is fastened to the central
joint with just one screw. In addition to being easy to install, the VarioFlex mount enjoys
the advantage of FRPSOHWHO\FRQFHDOHGFDEOLQJ and high impermeability to water and
dust (IP66). Wall and ceiling mounts are designed so that they can be mounted over
conventional flush-mounted sockets (without the frame) or cavity sockets and conceal
them completely.

Make sure that you have found the best camera position before mounting the camera. It
is important that the camera's field of view is not obstructed in any way. Once the camera
has been mounted to a wall or ceiling, you can fine-tune its position. If the monitored
area changes from time to time or the camera has to be installed in a different location,
the camera lens can be exchanged in just a few easy steps and used, without having to
upgrade to new video software (does not apply to the M24M-Sec with hemispheric L11 lens).

Allround View
The allround view of the
M24M is restricted by the
weatherproof cover, which
can be offset by panning/
tilting/zooming the image
MOBOTIX recommends the Q24M with
optional In-Ceiling Set
as a discreet and powerful overview camera with
a 360° allround view
Thanks to its hemispheric lens, a single M24M can monitor an entire room right into each
of the four corners (360° Allround View). The camera's ideal position is on the ceiling in the
center of the room at an angle of 90°. Due to its inherent physical and optical properties, the
precision of the lens decreases as the distance from the lens grows. This means
that the maximum usable image area
greatly varies with the purpose of the
camera. Rooms with a square floor area
of up to approx. 40 m² (48 yd²) in general
allow details to be identified even at the
borders of the full image. If you would
only like to know if persons enter a room
or for monitoring specific objects, rooms
with up to 100 m² (120 yd²) floor area
can be monitored using a single M24M.
Furthermore, the "camera view from
top to bottom" can also be achieved
by mounting the camera to a wall or
a pole at a tilt of 90°.
The image quality (precision) diminishes as the
distance of an object to the camera focus point
increases: 1 very good, 2 good, 3 satisfactory
$OOURXQG9LHZ,Q5HFWDQJXODU5RRPV
When viewing a 360° allround image in the browser, you will notice that at the top and
the bottom of the image edge, small part of the image information has been cut off. This
is not a fault of the camera, but an intended behavior that aims at achieving the best
possible utilization of the image sensor by the camera software. Bearing this in mind, it is
advisable to install the M24M in rectangular rooms so that the camera lens is first directed
towards the center of the two longer walls and then vertically tilted towards the ground.

Installation on round poles is frequently used for cameras that are intended for mobile
outdoor use. For this purpose, MOBOTIX recommends using the pole mount, which is
available for the M24M as an accessory and is almost indestructible (MX-MH-SecureFlexESWS). This pole mount is made from rust-proof stainless steel with a white coating and
is used in combination with the pre-installed VarioFlex mount supplied as standard with
the wall mount.
Poles with a diameter between 60 and 180 mm can be used. It is particularly advisable
to use cavity (metal) poles, in which the network cable is not visible and can be protected
from attacks. For more detailed information on the installation process, see Sections 2.6
and below. The appropriate drilling templates can be found at the end of the manual.

In order to maintain a continuous power supply even when utility power fails, you should
install an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). These devices also provide full protection
against electrical surges and voltage fluctuations and thus enhance the reliability of the
system as a whole.
When using a more powerful 19" rack-mounted UPS, you can also protect all other network
components (for example, switches, routers, PoE switches, etc.).
UPS not only protect
against power failures,
they also protect all
other connected network devices against
damage from voltage peaks and lows
Since MOBOTIX cameras do not require any heating, even during winter, the average
power consumption of approximately 3 watts is very low. This in turn means that you can
centralize the UPS-protected power supply by injecting power into the network cables
(max. 100 m/109.36 yd). This kind of protected power supply can be used either with
MOBOTIX PoE products (MX-NPA-PoE + Universal Power Supply) or with PoE-compliant
switches according to IEEE 802.3af.

When installing the wiring inside or outside of buildings, make sure you always adhere
to the relevant regulations on wiring, fire prevention, and protection against lightning.
MOBOTIX cameras are protected against the effects of small electrical surges by a range
of measures. These measures, however, cannot prevent the camera from being damaged
when stronger electrical surges occur. Particular care should be taken when installing the
camera outside to ensure proper SURWHFWLRQDJDLQVWOLJKWQLQJ, as this also protects the
building and the entire network infrastructure.
MOBOTIX recommends having MOBOTIX cameras installed only by certified specialists
accustomed to installing network devices and having proper respect for the applicable
regulations regarding lightning protection and fire prevention as well as the current technology for preventing damages from electrical surges.

The MOBOTIX Network Power Adapter Set (NPA-PoE set) is a high-quality, robust, ultracompact, and, above all, multifunctional PoE injector with three connectors (network,
camera/PoE device, PC) and a universal power
supply unit with adapter plugs. The Network Power
Adapter Set remotely supplies the M24M and all
other PoE devices with power in accordance with
the IEEE 802.3af standard. This makes it possible to
use the network cable to both connect the camera
and remotely supply power (up to 100 m). As a result,
the M24M can be supplied with PoE power via the
adapter and connected directly to your PC (integrated
crossover function).
A further advantage of this product is its versatility. The
blue adapter can be connected to the different power outlet systems around the world using
the power supply unit. The device can also be directly connected to network-independent
power sources between 12 V and 42 V. This is ideal for the battery-operated, standalone
operation of a network camera. This device is especially practical because the supplied
power supply unit can be used around the world by changing the adapters as required
in just two simple steps. The "EU" version of the NPA-PoE Set is supplied as standard with
a European adapter, while the "INT" version includes 4 adapters (EU, USA, UK, AUS).
/HQV&RYHU:LWK*ODVV3DQH (MX-M24M-OPT-LCSG)
As an additional accessory, the M24M with standard lens
(M14 thread) can be supplied with a protective cover that
has a glass pane instead of one made of plastic. This
will improve the durability of the lens cover when used in
extremely rough conditions (at sea, in sand storms, etc.).
This lens cover also has a thread size that fits external
filters (40.5 mm x 0.5 mm) available from photo shops.
For example, you could install a polarization filter to cancel
out the reflections from windowpanes or windshields.
Using this lens cover together with the L22 Super Wide
Angle lens is not recommended, since this lens cover
produces shadows at the image borders. The (longer)
cover supplied with M24M models with the CSVario lens
is equipped with the glass pane as standard.

&DP,2)RU00 - Available In 2010
CamIO is an extension module for MOBOTIX cameras
that provides numerous connectors for external devices
and expands the scope of the camera to include
various control and switching features.
The CamIO Box (MX-CAM-IO), which is still available
for M12/M22 cameras, is no longer compatible with
the M24M due to the modified system platform.
A new CamIO especially revised for this camera
series is currently in the planning stages and will
be available in 2010.

buttons. It is ideal for door communication, elevators,
access control, etc.
The ExtIO can be operated directly with the M24M over
a separately available MOBOTIX USB cable. The ExtIO
can operate in two different modes:
š Mini USB: Directly connected to the camera using
a separately available cable (max. 5 m)

Mx2wire Media Converter (MX-2wire-Set-PW)
Antenna or coaxial
cable
The Mx2wire system allows you to set up an Ethernet
network with PoE via two-wire cables of up to 500 m in
length. This allows an existing two-wire analog telephone
line to be connected to a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet device
(for example, PC, WLAN, IP camera, IP telephone, or IP
door station). The achievable data rate is up to 30 Mbps.
Around 15 Mbps can be reached even with 500 m of
antenna cable.
Telephone line
or bell wire
An identical Mx2wire device is placed at the beginning
and the end of the line. Configuration as sender or receiver
is automatic. The Mx2wire units are supplied with power
by the feeding network cable. The connected devices
are supplied with up to 7 watts over PoE, as the injected
PoE signal is transmitted parallel to the network signal.
Mx2wire is delivered in the standard wall outlet frame
in different designs, however, it can also be used with
the available surface-mounted socket that is included.

If you are intending to mount the camera on a pole, you should consider using the MOBOTIX
M24M Pole Mount. This mount is made of 3 mm powder-coated stainless steel (white) and
has been designed specifically for outdoor use. The supplied stainless steel straps allow
the mount to be attached to poles with diameters between 60 mm and 180 mm (2.4 in to

Using Bonjour, MxEasy finds not only cameras on the same network as your computer,
but also MOBOTIX cameras located in other subnets (Status ,QYDOLG1HWZRUN). In such a
case, you would not be able to establish any connection to cameras in a different network
or subnet (without going into much further detail about the specific details of TCP/IP
network configurations). This is possible, for example, when a camera with a factory IP
address is connected to a network in which a DHCP server automatically assigns the IP
addresses. MxEasy can automatically configure such a camera so that it is "integrated"
into your existing network. To do so, simply highlight the desired camera in the list.
Clicking Next displays a security
prompt; if you click OK, the dialog for
reconfiguring the selected camera
will appear.
If your computer automatically obtains
its IP address from a DHCP server,
then this is certainly the best choice
for that specific camera and most likely for all other cameras that have been found in a
different subnet (*HW,3DGGUHVVDXWRPDWLFDOO\ option).

If your network has a DHCP server, you can start the MOBOTIX camera with DHCP
support. In this case, the DHCP server automatically assigns and announces an IP address.
Note that this announcement function can be deactivated ($GPLQ0HQXb!/RXGVSHDNHU

Carry out the following steps to start the camera with a DHCP address:
1. If the camera is running, disconnect the camera's power supply.
2. Reconnect the power supply of the camera.
3. Wait until both LEDs light up simultaneously for the first time. Press the camera's

address and will use its last IP address.
You should also make sure that the cameras always obtain the same IP addresses
by assigning the MAC addresses of the cameras to the desired IP addresses.

If you are using an M24M with the /Ɠ:LGH$QJOHOHQV, the image, particularly the
edges, may be slightly distorted due to the extreme angle of the lens.
You can suppress this effect using software (for example, in the browser) so that a new
and appropriately corrected image can be displayed live. A side effect of this correction,
however, is that a cushion shape appears around the edges of the image.
To hide this cushion effect, you simply have to ]RRP in on the image slightly. Although
this reduces the size of the captured area, the image is almost distortion-free compared
to the original.

Since activated lens distortion correction requires additional processing power, you should
consider disabling it in situations where it is not really necessary. You will only notice a
minimal distortion of the image, especially if you use the zoom. However, the maximum
frames rate for high resolution may be reduced, which means you have to choose between
maximum distortion correction or maximum frame rate.

&RUUHFWHGLPDJH]RRP
We recommend activating lens distortion correction, especially for applications with a low
frame rate and non-zoomed images (for example, when using the M24M as a webcam).
However, images can usually be corrected at a later point in time when searching recorded
images. This saves on processing power during recording and increases the frame rate.
The more you zoom in on the image, the less distorted the image should appear.

Introduction
More reliable than
KDUGGULYHVÁDVK
memory devices
Flash-based storage devices (MicroSD cards, CF cards, USB sticks,
and solid-state drives) do not contain any moving parts as compared
to the commonly used hard drives. Flash-based devices are compact,
extremely resistant to humidity and shock, use very little energy, do
not lose data during power failures, and are becoming less expensive. They are thus ideally suited for use with MOBOTIX cameras.
1XPEHU2I:ULWH'HOHWH&\FOHV3HU)ODVK6WRUDJH&HOO
The number of write/delete cycles of every storage cell of a flash
device is limited (for example, 10,000, 100,000 or more, depending on the quality). The
controller of the flash device automatically detects individual flash cells that are no longer
functioning. The contents of the faulty cell will then be rebuilt using a checksum and will
be moved to a properly working spare cell. The faulty storage cell will be marked as "bad"
and will no longer be used. No data is lost in this process.
In addition, MOBOTIX cameras constantly monitor activated flash storage devices. MOBOTIX
has developed a technology to test the wear of the flash device by logging the number of
write/delete cycles (patent pending). The flash memory wear is automatically displayed in
the status bar in the live camera image but it can also be viewed at anytime in the Admin
0HQXb!&DPHUD6WDWXV dialog.
&RQVHUYDWLYH0HPRU\8VDJH7KDQNV7R02%27,;0[))6)LOH6\VWHP
MxFFS formatting of the MicroSD card means that the MOBOTIX camera software will use
the flash device as evenly as possible, thus allowing for the maximum possible number of
write/delete cycles. This also means that all storage cells of the flash device will be written
and deleted with the same frequency, if possible. The MOBOTIX technology increases the
life of the flash device considerably and also improves the security and the reliability of
the storage process.
6WRUDJH5HTXLUHPHQWV$QG/LIH([SHFWDQF\2I0LFUR6'&DUGV
The life expectancy of a MicroSD card increases proportionally to the storage capacity,
since the camera software will execute fewer write/delete cycles on each storage cell.
The first deletion will begin once the SD card has been filled to capacity (first full cycle).
The theoretical life expectancy of a 16 GB MicroSD card is between 10 and 35 years,
depending on the degree of use.

Caution
It is recommended to use only high-grade MicroSD cards that are new.
For security applications, it is highly recommended to exchange the MicroSD card
for a new one after one year of operation.

MOBOTIX uses its own technology for this purpose and has a pending patent. You can
view the flash wear in the status bar of the live image or by opening $GPLQ0HQXb!

send a warning message (for example, via
e-mail) if the flash cell wear reaches a critical
value ($GPLQ0HQXb!6WRUDJHRQ([WHUQDO

Server / Flash Device
Before a MOBOTIX camera can store image and video sequences on a MicroSD card, it
needs to be formatted as MxFFS (MicroSD cards delivered with MOBOTIX cameras are
already MxFFS-formatted). The following steps are necessary to format a storage device
($GPLQ0HQXb!6WRUDJHRQ([WHUQDO)LOH6HUYHU)ODVK'HYLFH):
1. Make sure that there is a MicroSD card in the card slot of the MOBOTIX camera.
2. Click on the )RUPDW button under 6'
)ODVK&DUG.
The Safe Format option
takes several hours. You
can also use suitable
applications on Windows,
Linux/UNIX and
Mac OS X computers
to safely format the
MicroSD card
3. Select the Quick Format option and
confirm by clicking OK.
Note: In contrast to the Quick Format
option, the Safe Format option will make
sure that the data on the MicroSD card
is overwritten completely so that the data
cannot be recovered in any way. However,
keep in mind that the Safe Format takes
considerably more time.
4. Enter the user name and the password of
a user of the admins group in the dialog
that opens and click on OK to confirm.
The MOBOTIX camera now starts formatting
the card. It usually takes between 5 and
12 minutes to format an 8 GB MicroSD
card using the Quick Format option and 3
to 14 hours using the Safe Format option.
Once the formatting has been completed, you can activate the MicroSD card for recording
(see next section).
Caution
Make sure that you always wait until the formatting process has been completed
before accessing the camera again. This usually takes only a few minutes when
using the Quick Format option! You can only access the MicroSD card once MxFFS
formatting has been completed!
The Safe Format option can take several hours. You can also use suitable applications
on Windows, Linux/UNIX, and Mac OS X computers to safely format the MicroSD card.

Overview
A MOBOTIX camera can be completely configured using a JavaScript-enabled browser
on all common operating systems (such as Windows, Linux, Macintosh, etc.). The camera
provides a HTML-based user interface for this purpose. The camera executes the changes
you make to the camera configuration via HTTP commands using programs and scripts of
the embedded software. The settings are stored in the camera's flash memory.
This section contains an overview of the general browser settings of the MOBOTIX camera,
as well as further configuration options. The Software Camera Manual Part 2 contains
more detailed descriptions of the software features.

(OHFWULFDOVXUJHV can be induced by other electrical appliances, improper wiring, but also
from the outside (for example, lightning strikes to phone or power lines).
MOBOTIX cameras are protected against the effects of small electrical surges by a range
of measures. These measures, however, cannot prevent the camera from being damaged
when stronger electrical surges occur. Particular care should be taken when installing the
camera outside to ensure proper SURWHFWLRQDJDLQVWOLJKWQLQJ, as this also protects the
building and the entire network infrastructure.
MOBOTIX recommends having MOBOTIX cameras installed only by specialists accustomed
to installing network devices and who have proper respect for the pertinent regulations
lightning protection and fire prevention, as well as the current technology for preventing
damages from electrical surges.
Due to the high computing power of the M24M and the corresponding environmental
conditions at the installation site, the WHPSHUDWXUH of the sensor board may rise to a
relatively high level. However, this does not affect the functionality of the camera. The lens
should not be touched directly during live operation.
