Mobotix releases 360-degree, HD security camera

P camera vendor Mobotix has launched what it claims in the world’s first 360-degree, high-definition fixed security camera with a few local organisations already using it.

The Q22 captures video at 2048 x 1536, is 160mm in diameter and has no moving parts.The camera also has video management capabilities built in with internal storage options up to 16GB using the SD expansion slot.

Derek Priest, director of NSW-based security systems installer AUSTCO IP, said one Q22 covers the same area as two to three CCTV cameras, with higher resolution.

“We have installed the Q22 camera in the foyer area at Canada Bay Club in Five Dock, NSW, which saved the customer enormously on hardware and cabling,” Priest said. “We have also started specifying the Q22 for monitoring lifts and have won a project for a set of high-rise apartments in Sydney. We have saved the client around $8500 per lift in cabling alone, as the Q22 can record locally to a small storage device, without the need for a dedicated computer.”
