System Information

Backup Operating System: Open Help

A camera that has booted using its backup operating (e.g. after Updating the System Software has failed) will display its name and type on a red background.


Web Server Logfile: Open Help

The Web Server Logfile dialog logs all accesses to the camera and thus allows detecting unauthorized and failed access attempts.

Network Setup

Ethernet Packet Statistics

The Camera Status dialog (Show Camera Info button) now also contains statistical information on lost IP packets and collisions.

Transfer Profiles

Enhanced E-Mail Profiles: Open Help

The E-Mail Profiles dialog allows sending JPEG comments (image data from the JPEG header), JPEG images, MxPEG video clips with audio data and system messages (from a specific time range) as attachment.

Enhanced IP Notify Profiles: Open Help

The IP Notify Profiles dialog allows sending data as text or as HTTP data. As with e-mail profiles, IP messages can now include JPEG comments (image data from the JPEG header), JPEG images, MxPEG video clips with audio data and system messages (from a specific time range) as attachment.


Remote-Controlling the Camera Using Phone Keys Open Help

If the camera calls a phone or when calling the camera (see the ISDN Audio Call-In), pressing the "3" key on the phone will toggle camera arming and the complete event control on or off, just like the Arming parameter in the General Event Settings dialog.

The "2" phone key establishes an ISDN dial-out connection (as before); pressing "2" again will close an existing connection.

General Administration

NTP Time Server: Open Help

The Time and Date dialog allows setting up to three time servers that provide NTP (Network Time Protocol). The NTP client of the MOBOTIX uses the time server(s) to adjust its real-time clock.

Image controls

New Image Format VGA2: Open Help

The new VGA2 image format (640x240 pixels) can be selected using the drop-down menu of the Live screen or in the General Image Settings dialog. This image format offers higher frame rates than VGA (640x480) while requiring about half the bandwidth.

Event Control

New Events: Open Help

The Event Settings dialog provides the following new events:

RB Recording Begin Triggered when a recording begins
RE Recording End Triggered when a recording ends
RT Recording Terminate Triggered when the Recording Terminate functions exits
RH Recording History Triggered when storing a History Recording (HR) image

Recording in MxPEG format With Audio: Open Help

The Recording dialog offers three different recording modes:

In Event Recording mode, the camera can automatically retrigger the recording or it can explicitly stop the recording if a certain event occurs.

Separate Arming Switches for Complete Event Control, Recording, Actions, Messages and Messages 2

All of these dialogs now have their own arming switches, which can be set manually in the dialog or automatically, using the camera's Time Tables. The Arming switch in the General Event Settings dialog is special as it represents the master switch to control event control as a whole and also allows using the signal input. In this way, you could activate/deactivate camera arming using a key switch or reed contact, for example.

On top, arming can be toggled on or off from a touchtone phone using the "3" key and the ISDN Audio Call-In features.

History Recording: Open Help

If Event Recording or Snap Shot Recording have been set as Recording Mode in the Recording dialog, the camera can store history images at regular intervals. These images can then be viewed in the camera Player and can also be combined to time-lapse recordings using the appropriate tools.

Improvements of the User Interface

Novelties of the ActiveX Component

The ActiveX component of the Live screen has been enhanced and is now also used in the Player screen to play back MxPEG clips with audio data that have been recorded using one of the Recording Modes Event Recording or Continuous Recording.

Automatic Image Update for PDA Screen:

The camera's PDA screen automatically updates the live images of the camera, if the PDA browser supports JavaScript. Clicking into the image will start/stop updating the images.


Layout Editor

The layout editor provides for easy setup of site plans for buildings as it allows importing images as background images. The defined cameras are simply placed on the plan using Drag&Drop.

Quick Events

Direct File Server Access

The Options > <camera name> tab has a selection box that allows pulling the images directly from the file server (Windows server or Linux/Unix server with Samba) or via the camera.
