Videalert has announced the immediate availability of a new generation of mobile ANPR camera technology. Designed for use with Videalert’s expanding range of multi-purpose Mobile Enforcement Vehicles (MEV), including both cars and bikes, the HD camera will deliver enhanced capture rates and increase productivity in parking and traffic management applications.
The new 2 megapixel camera is ONVIF compliant and utilises the latest Sony DSP technology for noise reduction and infrared sensitivity to accurately capture crisp images of reflective number plates at distances of up to 40 metres. It also features a full colour overview module to capture contextual images of vehicles in both daylight and challenging light conditions.
According to Tim Daniels, Sales and Marketing Director of Videalert: “We are now fitting this innovative new camera technology to all our new MEV platforms as it will deliver number plate read rates of over 98% in a wide range of applications with vehicles being driven at normal speeds. Our MEV engineering hub facility in Trowbridge, Wiltshire enables us to build and test multiple platforms concurrently and deliver in greater volume to meet the requirements of fleet operators for single or multiple vehicles.”
As well as equipping MEVs with this new generation camera, Videalert installs a complete suite of software for rapid deployment in different enforcement and monitoring applications. The MEVs are fully compatible with Videalert’s hosted Digital Video Platform, allowing councils to quickly extend enforcement to other areas without having to make further investment in IT infrastructure.
