– free control program for Mobotix cameras without interfaces (direct positioning)
– direct driving to the reference point (leftmost position)
– setting of zero position as reference point
– direct driving to new positions
– cam control directly in context menu (you don’t need to open the program)
– saving of pictures to camera without interface (select the directory)
– No interface of the camera (direct control)
– Small form factor (only desktop mode)
A compressed version of this files are available in the original format (rar-folder), in case of problems you must unpack it and copy every file.
Aperture and focus/zoom can be set directly with Mobotix camera on web-site.
With an rtsp stream you can display the web site directly (here streaming is obligatory) and the web site should contain a url to the camera web-site.
An option shall be set to stream video and audio directly without a web site which is build by the customer.
If there is more than one camera the user can pick up the camera with the mouse or drag the camera to the program. The control program works in fullscreen mode only. You must close the program. The program will restart if you reinstall it.
Web-site support (set the url to the webcam) can be found here
Yes, that’s correct. If the camera was focused and stationary then the image is a bit soft and the contrast is a bit faded. I think they would be more useful if we first of all had better camera control
I can’t see anything wrong with this. We at Mobotix thought the same way and it has been discussed as well that we should use camera control and preferably some feature to make life easier for people. Maybe someone in your team can be convinced for it. I think there are other more important things, when we will release a new product.
It’s a very convenient and quick tool for me to use, which I was looking for a long time. But I have some problems:
1. Image quality is not good compared to the picture of the Mobotix software. Especially when I try to zoom, soft edges and color changes are to be seen.
2. I have to work directly on the RTSP server (which I do not want) and get the video to the Mobotix website.
CamControl is a free and useful control program for Mobotix cameras without interfaces for direct positioning. First you must move the camera position to the reference point. The referencepoint is the leftmost position. After that you must set the nullposition using the button : ‘Set Null’. Now you can drive to any positions and take them into the list by using the ‘New’ – button. It is the same procedure for updating positions. You can drive to positions directly by using the contextmenu.
In minmized mode the program will stop the live-stream for optimizing the system. The pictures will be saved over the camera directly.
CamControl (Mobotix) Features:This application is a request for a Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award entitled “Building confidence for parenthood: how human capital shapes maternity care.” The overarching goal of this proposal is to develop the candidate into an independent researcher who conducts and evaluates quantitative studies of the links among human capital, parent-infant attachment, and postpartum maternal health. The proposed research program is guided by a comprehensive theoretical framework and examines the effect of two dimensions of human capital — financial status and social support — on parent-infant attachment in the first and third trimesters of the infant’s life, respectively, and on postpartum maternal health, in each of the first and third trimesters. The independent variables (financial status and social support) are drawn from two distinct realms of family income (i.e., family financial resources and parental psychological resources) and from the social support domain (i.e., family and partner relationships). The dependent variables (parent-infant attachment and postpartum maternal health) are drawn from the parent-infant attachment and general health domains of the Infant Characteristics Questionnaire and from the Postpartum Health Care Attitudes and Practices questionnaire, respectively. Data from the National Survey of Family Growth (a large, representative sample of U.S. women and their infants) will be used to evaluate the proposed research plan. Specific aims are to: 1) test, in the first and third trimesters, the hypothesized effects of family financial resources and social support, respectively, on attachment during pregnancy and postpartum maternal health; 2) test, in the first and third trimesters, the hypothesized effects of family financial resources and social support, respectively, on parental attachment during pregnancy and postpartum maternal health; and 3) test, in the first and third trimesters
(28.01.2009) Final Version 0.9 for the RT and RC models are available: (check resources for download).
Even is there now a version for RC1? The official website of Mobotix is so strange to me: The RC1 firmware is now a version 2, not a version 1 as it was announced at the beginning of 2009.
(28.01.2009) Final Version 0.9 for the RC1 are available: (check resources for download).
The RC1 and the M9 are different right now. As the M9 has been sold out for 6 months now in Germany (minmum order: 1,000 units for 2,300 Euro), the RC1 is a main dealer item.
(03.01.2009) Final Version 0.9 for the M9 are available: (check resources for download).
In Germany now only four dealers are still selling the M9. This is a bit disappointing, because the order and delivery cycle was really big, the deadline was 27th December and now the delivery will be very tight.
(26.12.2008) Final Version 0.9 for the M4 and M7 are available: (check resources for download).
In Germany now only two dealers are still selling the M4 and the M7. These are two extreme cases: In M7 the inventory of the M7 went down to zero when the order was made and the deadline was 27th December (not existing any more), and another dealer is making a slight big order directly, and then he ends with a 50% order amout. We are still wondering, how the Austrian dealer had the same situation. The inventory in Austria is still at about 50 units M7 and M4.
(25.12.2008) Final Version 0.9 for the M9 and M4 are available: (check resources for download).
The delivery of the order for the M9 and M4 had been too fast again. We hope the order of about 1,000 units for 2,300 Euro and 1,000 units for 1,600 Euro has been well taken.
The M7 is out of stock again. But again there is no order in it, so we wonder if it can be sold for the new year.
(23.12.2008) Final Version 0.9 for the M3 and the M6 are available: (check resources for download
