The new MOBOTIX 6 Megapixel image sensors (available as a day & night for colour & B/W images) feature even better light sensitivity, making these the best MOBOTIX cameras and IP systems ever. In addition to the standard 4:3 image formats with maximised 5 MP resolution, this new technology now also supports images with upto 6 Megapixels in the special 3:2 format (3072 x 2048 pixels), both as a day and night sensor module. In dual image display mode, a MOBOTIX 6MP dual camera can generate images up to 12 Megapixels in size.
Thanks to the fact that a 6 Megapixel night sensor module MOBOTIX camera is now able to deliver high-quality images on full moon nights (illumination of approx. 0.25 lux) without any additional lighting, this new moonlight technology is suitable for applications with illumination levels below 5 lux (in compariosn, street light seldom drops below 10 lux). for senarios with normal lighting conditions, such as illuminated indoor and outdoor areas, the available 5 Megapixel camera models are sufficient.
The greatly increased light sensitivity of the new sensor technology is further enhanced by the HD Premium lenses also built into the 5 Megapixel cameras. These ne HD Premium lenses with a f/1.8 aperture are often in six different focal lengths. This technology, in connection with the new 6 Megapixel sensor modules (1/1.8" CMOS), delivers horizontal image angle between 15˚ and 105˚ for an image format of 4:3.
The entire range of camera models will ship with 6 Megapixel sensor modules/lens units as standard. All sensor modules and the remaining camera models (single lens and dual lens) will be available as 5MP & 6 MP versions. It is also be possible to update the firmware of current M15D, D15D & S15D camera modules to make them compatible with 5MP & 6MP sensor technology.
