MOBOTIX has announced the launch of MOBOTIX MOVE, a new video surveillance camera family that supplements its current portfolio allowing end customers to benefit from additional features to meet a wider range of indoor and outdoor use cases. Customers can now obtain MOBOTIX MOVE products as they provide standards-based technology as well as products with unique MOBOTIX features from a single trusted source backed by industry leading quality and reliability.

The new MOBOTIX MOVE series are the first MOBOTIX cameras to support both the ONVIF S and G profiles with video streaming at 3 and 4 MP resolution up to 30 frames per second. Available in 4 models including bullet, vandal proof bullet and fixed dome and two speed domes; all models are PoE powered and IP66/IK10 rated for flexible deployment.

“MOBOTIX MOVE is a recognition that we need to bring the same level of MOBOTIX expertise to a wider range of projects that have a specific requirement,” explains Thomas Lausten, Chief Executive Officer of MOBOTIX. “We listened to our global customers and integrators and created a new product family that delivers standards-based features while retaining the build quality, reliability and innovation that MOBOTIX is renowned for within the security and access control market.”

MOBOTIX MOVE also is the first MOBOTIX camera range with motorised varifocal lenses, high speed mechanical Pan-Tilt-Zoom, Speed Domes and Wide Dynamic Range sensors at up to 4MP resolution. The built-in software offers Smart Event functions, remote zoom and focus plus iris control on Autofocus Lens.

Each device includes a built-in SD card slot and certain models have integrated IR LED illumination. The true day/night feature with integrated movable IR cut filter technology provides colour images at day time and monochrome infrared sensitive images at night.

With full ONVIF support, MOBOTIX MOVE cameras can natively support the widest range of video management software and NVR devices including PTZ control, audio, multicasting and relay outputs.

“With the addition of MOBOTIX MOVE, our customers now have more choice without compromising on quality,” says Lausten, “All MOBOTIX MOVE products are specified and tested by MOBOTIX in Germany and manufactured under supervision. Our customers can be sure that we won’t lose our product DNA and all MOBOTIX MOVE branded devices are delivered and supported according to the same high-quality standards our customers expect,” Lausten adds.

All MOBOTIX MOVE devices can be controlled via integrated web GUI using PC based browsers and will also be natively supported in the upcoming 2.0 version of MOBOTIX Management Center due for release in Q4 of 2018. MOBOTIX MOVE will be available from MOBOTIX distributors at the end of July and will be supported by technical training events for registered partners.

    As a Mobotix partner I must say that I am very concerned with this announcement since finding out that the MOVE range is a Dynacolor OEM rebadge. Yes of course a PTZ addition to the Mobotix range now provides us with the ability to now make a bid for projects requiring mechanical zoom cameras, but it does not provide us with an innovative differentiator.

    And then there is the elephant in the room that Mobotix doesn’t want to talk about – pricing. The same Dynacolor products can be purchased at a much lower discount through Dynacolor’s premium distributors. We did the math yesterday and worked out that it would be cheaper for an installer to buy the Dynacolor equivalent with Milestone VMS camera licensing through a Dynacolor distributor than it is to buy the same rebadged cameras through a Mobotix distributor.

    Price aside, the the technology is disappointing. Mobotix built its early success on the back of innovation and an array of unique differentiators, so the decision to rebrand a Taiwanese mass produced technology feels like Mobotix is diluting their market positioning.

    Also because the MOVE range is Dynacolor technology, it does not include any of the Mobotix key differentiators — “MxPEG”, “decentralized video” and “made in Germany”.

    Additionally the Mobotix VMS, MxManagmentCenter, does not support the new Mobotix Move devices so they cannot coexist on the same system with the current Mobotix cameras, unless you buy Milestone licenses. A strategy which is more than bizarre to say the least.

    In light of the plummeting Mobotix share price since 2016, it would appear this has been a decision of desperation rather than a strategic move, as a way to garner quick sales, bearing in mind that no meaningful development has been released for Mobotix Move with Mobotix VMS platform.

    For the reasons outlined above it is difficult to see how this announcement is a positive move for Mobotix partners or the end customers, in the long term.
