High Resolution Miniature ANPR Camera

Genetec : 21 February, 2011  (New Product)
Genetec's AutoVu SharpX is a small License Plate Recognition camera with high resolution for use in access control and traffic surveillance applications

Genetec has launched the AutoVu SharpX, the world’s smallest high-resolution license plate recognition (LPR) camera.


Until now, law enforcement agencies looking to invest in advanced LPR technology were forced to compromise between size, reading performance and value. LPR cameras with superior read rates are typically large, attracting vandals and often occluding the light bar. Until now, smaller LPR cameras have not read as well, often requiring agencies to install multiple units to obtain adequate performance.


The new AutoVu SharpX, designed specifically for mobile law enforcement applications, eliminates the need for compromise. Standing at just 1.65 inches tall, the AutoVu SharpX is the smallest specialized high-resolution LPR camera on the market today. The AutoVu SharpX achieves the industry’s highest plate capture rates by providing two to three times higher resolution than other solutions. Higher resolution per plate image means better accuracy and improved readability in bad weather, with dirty or obstructed plates, or at difficult angles. More than that, the AutoVu SharpX is capable of reading up to differential speeds over 200 MPH (320 km/h), across three lanes of traffic.


“We are excited to offer a new option for mobile law enforcement applications,” said Chris Yigit, Senior Product Manager at Genetec. “We designed the AutoVu SharpX to be the smallest, most discreet unit out there with the best reading performance in the industry. Using only two AutoVu SharpX cameras, most agencies can expect to read more plates than if they were equipped with four competing units. The feedback from all initial trials has been overwhelmingly positive. This unit is truly the next generation in LPR hardware.”


The AutoVu SharpX also offers a state-of-the-art Super HAD CCD II colour context camera to provide the best images in a variety of environmental conditions. From early morning to late in the night, officers can expect quality images to help identify the make, model, and even the colour of a suspect vehicle. The technology is backed by over 10 years of LPR analytics research and development.


The AutoVu system and SharpX camera are integral parts of the Security Center, Genetec’s Unified Security Platform. This means an officer can easily incorporate the AutoVu SharpX into a city-wide surveillance system and index LPR hits with video surveillance and access control events, or merge a stand-alone LPR system into the unified platform later on as needs arise.


The AutoVu SharpX units carry the industry’s best read rates and smallest form factor for a high-resolution LPR camera. The AutoVu SharpX also represents great value as a true force multiplier by allowing officers the ability to do more with fewer units.
