ANPR cameras

Genetec, the Canadian IP security product company, has announced its IP-based automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras, the AutoVu Sharp and AutoVu SharpX.

The new cameras enable the concurrent detection of number plates from more models, capturing number plates from different countries on the same system. Users can also use new vehicle behaviour and characteristic analytics, and deploy up to four high-resolution ANPR cameras on a vehicle, for near-360 degree capture. The new cameras are available via the company’s certified integrators and channel partners.

The makers say that the products go beyond ANPR to offer vehicle characteristic and behavioural analytics, and can analyse a scanned vehicle to identify its make and the number plate country of origin. The direction and speed of vehicles can also be detected with a single ANPR camera, for users to collect and review trends, and automatically detect suspicious behaviours.

Stephan Kaiser, AutoVu General Manager, Genetec, said: “We believe that the value of ANPR extends beyond number plate analysis, and our latest generation of AutoVu Sharp and SharpX cameras is a gateway that offers those extended features for identifying vehicle trends and patterns. Whether in a city setting or on a private property, the advanced analytics in the Sharp and SharpX introduce important new methodologies for detecting complex automotive behaviors, along with powerful new data mining possibilities.”

The makers add that the AutoVu SharpX also uses more processing power that offers new configuration options. Users can now deploy up to four high-resolution SharpX camera units on a single processing unit, cutting equipment costs and simplifying installation and maintenance, it is claimed. Mobile users can achieve near-360 degree ANPR coverage, to capture more number plates located around the patrol vehicle. The SharpX is also now available in a new portable mobile kit, containing up to four cameras, a pre-wired processing unit and all necessary cables, letting users move their ANPR equipment from one vehicle to another as required.
