MxPEG Viewer

 

When you set the MxPEG parameter in the JPEG Settings dialog to enable, the camera creates a stream using MOBOTIX video encoding. MxPEG allows for large-format live videos at extremely low network load (1% at 100 Mbps).

For viewing and storing the stream, you need MxPEG Viewer for Windows. You can download the application directly from this camera.

Find the latest version of MxPEG Viewer on the MOBOTIX homepage.
