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.

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

Traffic management

Toll collection

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.
