Mobotix Releases 'Move' Into 21st Century

By: Ethan Ace, Published on Jun 20, 2018

For years, Mobotix stood resolutely against, well, every other manufacturer, selling it as a virtue:

MOBOTIX equipment is designed with no moving parts to provide the best overall return on investment

Now, Mobotix has moved with their new Move line:

In this note, we examine the manufacturing, the feature sets and how it impacts Mobotix's competitive positioning.

looks like Dynacolor from first glance...especially the bullet.

that PTZ with the black body, looks a lot like the ptz on Dynacolor's home page:

 

http://www.dynacolor.com.tw/

 

Looking forward to the new products.  As long as the quality is maintained, these look to be some welcome additions.

I saw a lookalike of the IR PTZ at the Flir booth, same OEM partner?

Mobotix has not disclosed who the manufacturer is, but did specify that it was "not Chinese."

John/IPVM Team, 

Are there any known security flaws with the Dynacolor products?  Anything similar to the AXIS issues, or worse (Dahua and HIK)?  

A search of CVE authorities doesn't turn up anything Dynacolor. 

Whether there were known vulnerabilities or not would be moot anyway if Mobotix is running their own firmware on the cameras.

It's nice to see Mobotix trying to launch a complete solution with the MOVE and a storage/recording platform planned for future release.  I prefer to sell & support the IoT models due to their image quality, intelligence and reliability.    But I can see applications where these might make a good enhancement to an IoT system.

Seems to me that most of the huge advantage Mobotix has in terms of low power requirements, small footprint and ease of outdoor physical installation would go away with their new PTZ models. In the rare occasions where I need that functionality I'd be much more inclined to go with Axis than try out unproven stuff on a customer.
