MOBOTIX AG (MBQ: Xetra) and Dover Energy Automation, an operating company within Dover Corporation (NYSE: DOV) announce that they have partnered to create the “Sight Optimization” solution for oil and gas well sites. The partnership integrates MOBOTIX’s suite of smart cameras with Dover Energy Automation Production Optimization’s XSPOC artificial-lift optimization software platform.
The partnership between Dover Energy Automation and MOBOTIX creates a comprehensive well-site surveillance solution that offers scalability, analytics and efficient data management. The powerful xVision module within Dover Energy Automation’s XSPOC artificial-lift optimization software integrates audio/video feeds and detection events from MOBOTIX’s line of smart IP cameras.
The intelligent 3D motion detection, low-bandwidth, high-quality image capabilities of MOBOTIX’s smart IP and autonomous cameras, combined with the well-site artificial-lift intelligence built into Dover Energy Automation’s XSPOC optimization software, will allow production-optimization personnel to realize increased levels of situational well-site awareness, reduce “windshield time,” and streamline responses to well-site events and incidents.
“Today, Dover Energy Automation took a critical step forward in enabling personnel to better optimize production by adding human senses to their optimization routines – sight and sound,” said Tim Marvel, Vice President, Production Optimization, Dover Energy Automation. “This solution brings the wellsite to our customers’ fingertips, providing optimized production safely, securely and in an environmentally responsible way.”
“MOBOTIX is once again at the forefront of IIoT by leveraging decentralized concept and effective event logic for mission-critical industrial applications,” stated Mike Bomas, General Manager, MOBOTIX Corp. “We are very excited to join forces and share technical expertise with Dover Energy Automation in a Strategic Partnership that enables proactive event-management tools within the XSPOC artificial-lift optimization software platform”.

About MOBOTIX AG
MOBOTIX AG (www.MOBOTIX.com) is a manufacturer of digital high-resolution and network-based digital video security systems. Headquartered in Langmeil, Germany, the company was founded as an Aktiengesellschaft (stock corporation) in 1999. To market the solutions worldwide, MOBOTIX uses distributors and qualified sales partners in more than 70 countries. MOBOTIX AG currently employs more than 400 people. Sales revenue amounted to approximately EUR 78 million in the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 2014.
MOBOTIX camera systems use digital data transfer over computer networks and are not restricted by the low 0.4 megapixel image resolutions of the old analog video standard. The decentralized system architecture developed by MOBOTIX provides for image processing to take place in the actual cameras rather than in the central PC. This means that each camera independently detects movements in the image, stores them in a database and reports the event via email or a VoIP telephone call. This decentralized structure reduces the load on the network, and the central video management system permits higher image rates and reduces the storage capacity required to record high-resolution video.
Their intelligent decentralized architecture makes MOBOTIX video security systems ideal for a wide range of different applications from smaller installations of just a few cameras linked via the internet to large-scale surveillance applications involving hundreds of cameras using central control centers. MOBOTIX systems are already in use at airports, train stations, universities and logistics centers, as well as in industrial applications for remote monitoring and automation. There are currently more than 1,000,000 MOBOTIX cameras at work around the world.
