The MOBOTIX Q25 is ultra compact and weatherproof IP dome camera. Thanks to the 360° allround view to capture an entire room, a panorama function and a quad view to show images from four different angles simultaneously, the Q25 can be used in all new scenarios.

When Lexington One School District needed to upgrade to higher resolution cameras and move away from legacy technology that was reaching end-of-life to turned to MOBOTIX technologies including the Q25. Lexington One has deployed a variety of MOBOTIX IP surveillance cameras, including the Q25 with built-in hemispheric, 360° allround view to drastically reduce the required number of cameras. MOBOTIX MxControlCenter is the district-wide video management system, while QNAP NAS servers provide 12-48 terabytes of storage per school.

“We sought a surveillance solution that could take advantage of our current infrastructure while increasing camera coverage by 40 to 50 percent,” said Allen Ray, Network Servies Coordinator, Lexington One. “Integration with audio was also essential. We found surveillance to be a significant deterrent when combined with audio recording. With the MOBOTOX solution, we are able to gather details relating to incidents with high-resolution video and crisp audio, and determine the outcome quickly.”

The MOBOTIX Q25 delivers a variety of valuable features including:

  • High-resolution widescreen panorama from wall to wall, ideal for access control and identification in campus environments
  • Integrated DVR (up to 64 GB) for long-term recording without network load
  • Digital continuous tilting, panning and zooming without mechanically moving the camera
  • Robust and low maintenance with no moving parts
  • Newest MOBOTIX 5MP sensor technology with up to 30 fps and improved zoom
  • Microphone, speaker, MxBus and intelligent movement sensors (MxActivitySensor)
  • Optimized image quality and reduced motion blur even in poor lighting conditions

The hemispheric Q25 delivers 180-degree panorama images, using a single camera to secure an entire room with no blind spots for a better overview than several individual cameras. It offers a digital continuous pan, tilt, zoom functionality. Unlike conventional PTZ cameras, the robust Q25 has no moving parts and is thus regarded as maintenance-free. It is also based on the decentralized concept, with data processing taking place within the camera and recording taking place internally on an SD card, externally on a USB stick, or via the IP network on NAS hard drives. Pioneered by MOBOTIX, the decentralized approach reduces traffic across the network and does not require expensive upgrades to the IT infrastructure.
