ACTi NVRs are popular components to any ACTi system. It’s sad to see a few of their models go, but the replacements are making the parting of ways a little sweeter.

Join Grandstream on May 28th for this to view Grandstream’s updated IP Surveillance line and learn how their security solution can fit your needs.

By now you’ve probably seen plenty regarding Grandstream. Not only are they an evergreen presence in voice over IP endpoints, but they’ve also made quite a splash in the video over IP as well.

From humble beginnings, with their GXV3615 indoor cube IP camera, Grandstream has made their presence known with their award winning GXV3672 outdoor day/night IP Camera and more recent outdoor day/night vari-focal lens GXV3674_HD_VF.

The VoIP Supply President, Paula Griffo, and I just got back from the MOBOTIX East Coast Partner Conference on Friday and are we excited where this security company is going!

VOIP Supply and MOBOTIX have had a beautiful relationship for years. When the MOBOTIX Partner Program went into effect last year, VoIP Supply was immediately an Advanced Partner. We’ve been trained on the products and we can get directly on the phone with MOBOTIX, which is a huge benefit to you, our customers.

If you’re not familiar with MOBOTIX, they are a full solution surveillance company. Dr. Ralf Hinkle founded the company back in 1999 in Germany by building a DVR directly into an IP camera. This decentralized system was revolutionary, and since then MOBOTIX …

If you’ve been looking at a MOBOTIX solution, chances are you’ve noticed MOBOTIX cameras record in all the expected compression’s, and then in an extra compression: MxPEG. You may be asking yourself ‘What is this MxPEG? How does it compare to H.264?’ Let me help you out with that.

Video recorded in HDTV (1920 x 1080) is compressed in H.264. It was created for broadcasting high definition video, which is why nowadays it’s the most common video compression out there. While it’s ideal for bandwidth conservation, when paused on a frame, there is a fuzziness to the image. A minor inconvenience really. It’s usually acceptable, which is why most surveillance companies allow H.264 as one of their compression options, but MOBOTIX wasn’t satisfied.

The new MOBOTIX MX-M15D-Thermal is an AllroundDual IP Camera perfect for situations that require a decentralized system in an environment that usually has poor visibility.
