Smaller camera for traffic enforcement

ELSAG North America : 05 November, 2008  (New Product)
MPH-900 gains improved camera technology for automatic number plate recognition and other traffic enforcement tasks
Next week at the 115th edition of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference in San Diego, ELSAG North America Law Enforcement Systems will unveil a new and vastly improved camera for their market-leading Mobile Plate Hunter (MPH-900), an Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) system. ELSAG will also announce upgrades for its Operations Centre that will more efficiently process the data obtained by the numerous MPH-900 systems in the field. The more slender camera is 43% smaller than the existing one, allowing it to be placed along side or in virtually any light bar on top of police vehicles. The more accommodating camera will retain the same commanding accuracy that the MPH-900 is known and recognised for across the board. The ability to place the cameras in the light bar will further enhance ELSAG's reputation as the leader in flexible mounting systems.

ELSAG North America's MPH-900 is an easy to use, mobile or fixed ALPR system that significantly improves officer safety and productivity while allowing law enforcement to achieve much better community safety. The system targets motor vehicle related crime and operators who are not properly licensed or who may be wanted in connection with a crime, such as a stolen, unregistered or uninsured vehicle. Managed by ELSAG's industry-leading Operations Centre Software suite, ELSAG is currently reading and recording nearly 13.5 million transactions a day.

With each of the 4,500 units in use around the world reading roughly 3,000 plates a day, approximately 4 billion plates a year are being processed by ELSAG's Operations Centre.

"ELSAG combines brilliant Italian engineering with American ingenuity and know-how to create the MPH-900 system, which is proudly manufactured in the US and offers the best solution for ALPR technology," said Mark Windover, President and CEO of ELSAG North America. "We are thrilled to be bringing our clients consistent advances in our technology in order to help them do their job as safely and efficiently as possible."

The new Operations Centre is perfect for small and large systems. With more flexible search capabilities, better imaging and mapping, and most importantly, more robust and adaptive data structure, ELSAG is proving its commitment to continue taking innovative measures to deliver the best possible product to their clients.

ELSAG North America's MPH-900 is currently in use by over 400 agencies in 30 states across the US. It has many applications and has aided in everything from being used as crucial evidence to convict the murderer of a family in Fishkill, NY to apprehending uninsured vehicles and catching the drivers of vehicles that illegally pass school buses.
