JPEG Settings

Open the JPEG Settings dialog to activate MxPEG, define the JPEG quality and set other options for the camera's JPEG images.


Description of Parameters

Parameter Description
Video Codec

If you enable MxPEG, the camera creates a stream using MOBOTIX' own video compression scheme. MxPEG allows for large-format live videos 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. Use the same link to download the newest version of MxControlCenter.

JPEG User Comment

Enter your own text which is stored as comment in the header of every JPEG file.


  • The comment will not be visible in the image itself. For entering visible text, open the Text and Display Settings dialog.
  • The comment is limited to 64 characters.
JPEG Comment Text (CT) Text messages received via the serial interface or the IP Receive (RC) event can be integrated in the header of a JPEG image. You can reserve up to 16 characters for the comment.

Storing the Configuration

Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the next reboot of the camera.

Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
