Introducing MOBOTIX's New v25

Available shortly is the newest member of MOBOTIX's indoor family: the v25. With the new v25, MOBOTIX is now offering a compact, all-round indoor camera in a classic dome design. The v25 is only suitable for ceiling mounting and has a tiltable lens mount. The lens tilt angle in relation to the ceiling can be adjusted between 0° and -90° using just two screws. The v25 is available with optional vandalism protection (stainless steel ring and reinforced dome). It can be quickly and easily mounted on all ceilings using the mounting materials included and it can be equipped with a small cable guide opening for hidden ethernet/PoE cables (behind ceiling tiles, for instance) and two-wire connections.

To mount the camera on a ceiling where the cable(s) cannot be hidden/laid under plaster (like a concrete ceiling), and/or to expand the system to include a two-way communication function, MOBOTIX offers an on-wall set with integrated microphone and speaker for the v25. Another advantage of this on-wall set is that the housing includes access-protected connectors for any two boards from the MOBOTIX interface boxes, allowing for expanded functionality. With the new MxTubeMount, the v25 (with or without on-wall set with audio) can be mounted to hang from unstructured ceilings such as in supermarkets, airports, warehouses, etc.

Top-notch protective equipment makes the v25 an attractive, affordable indoor vandalism camera for public buildings and high-security environments like prisons or military facilities. MOBOTIX also offers a vandalism set for the v25 that includes a sturdy stainless steel ring (matt), a reinforced 3-mm polycarbonate dome and security screws. The optional protective equipment provides complete, reliable protection for the housing and is available in two versions, for a v25 with or without an on-wall set. The stainless steel ring for the on-wall system is designed to ensure that the audio functions remain available.

What's MOBOTIX Have to Say?

Konica Minolta and MOBOTIX

Within the past month, MOBOTIX has announced that Konica Minolta will acquire a majority stake in MOBOTIX. Although this news has come as a shock to many, it makes perfect sense. MOBOTIX provides cutting edge, smart IP video cameras in a true decentralized architecture. Coupled with their professional video management software, MOBOTIX provides an end to end IP video solution that is second to none in the industry.

Konica Minolta is known for high-resolution imaging sensors and high grade lenses. They also have industrial optical systems including 3D-LiDAR which can generate 3D images, determine distance, size and speed of moving objects. When the technologies of both companies are combined, you can expect further development on intelligent security solutions that will re-define the space.

The goal of both companies is to drive end user demand which will certainly benefit you, our integrators and partners. Also, MOBOTIX will continue to operate under the MOBOTIX brand. So expect business as usual from ABP Tech and the MOBOTIX team, but keep an eye open to exciting new enhancements that are sure to follow.
