The MxControlCenter

If you enable MxPEG in the JPEG Settings dialog, the camera creates a combined audio/video stream using MOBOTIX video encoding. MxPEG allows for large-format live video and audio streaming (audio only if supported by the camera model) at extremely low network load (1% at 100 Mbps).

For viewing and storing the stream, you need MxControlCenter for Windows. You can download the application directly from the MOBOTIX Website in the Support > Software Downloads section or the MxPEG ActiveX Plug-in for Internet Explorer directly from this camera.

MxControlCenter also provides voice transport in both directions via network connections (Voice over IP or VoIP), provided that adequate bandwidth is available.

Notes: If fast movements occur in the image, you may see tiles in the image if MxPEG is activated. If you prefer better image quality, you should deactivate MxPEG as described in The Live Screen under High Resolution and Quality.
  This help page describes the basic features of MxControlCenter. For more detailed information, read the MxControlCenter Help, that is installed with the application.
  For further information on the MxPEG ActiveX Plug-in for Internet Explorer, see The Live Screen.
