Add License Plate Recognition
to your search
From security to traffic, to parking payments, XProtect LPR is an increasingly popular tool for operators. Now, operators can include XProtect LPR data in their search, allowing them to connect video content with a specific vehicle.
In our last release, we introduced a centralized Search feature that makes finding a specific incident easy by aggregating all data types registered on the XProtect VMS. Now, we are taking that feature one step further to include License Plate Recognition (LPR) searches.
From security to traffic, to parking payments, XProtect LPR is an increasingly popular tool for operators. With this new feature, operators can include XProtect LPR data in their search, allowing them to connect video content with a specific vehicle.
Improving search for license plates with Milestone
Axis and Milestone are now offering a smarter way to search for, recover, identify and share video evidence about vehicles. The serverless, camera-based solution provides an efficient means to perform forensic search for a range of on- and off-street applications. It integrates Axis network video cameras with several license plate recognition applications as well as
Milestone XProtect video management system (VMS). Watch the video to see how you get results using Milestone Centralized Search with the new forensic search plug-in included in AXIS Optimizer from version 3.5.
See how it works
LPR metadata boosts
intelligence in video
A range of Axis cameras support built-in automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) video analytic applications (ACAPs) offered from Axis and third party vendors. These contain metadata captured and processed entirely within the Axis camera and then transferred to the XProtect database.
THIS ALLOWS XPROTECT USERS TO
GET SEARCH RESULTS OF VIDEO BASED ON:
Vehicle’s type, brand, model, color and speed
License plate number and country of origin
Date and time the video was recorded
SOME OF THE USE CASES THIS
SOLUTION IS WELL SUITED FOR INCLUDE:
Speed, lane and traffic light enforcement control
Vehicular crime investigations
Parking lot security
Fast and accurate results
The solution allows users to collect important traffic data and manage all aspects — from automatically detecting license plates to getting forensic search results. Vehicle and plate detection, recognition and classification is performed inside the camera before being sent to the VMS. Using Power of Ethernet IP cameras to process and manage metadata keeps costs low compared to server-based processing.
Plus, each ACAP and camera are optimized to ensure high-quality video and analytics with optical zoom, autofocus, OptimizedIR, electronic image stabilization, shutter speed and other important camera settings. Depending on which ACAP is used, results typically deliver detection rates of >97% with up to 95% recognition rates.
