is showcasing a new, ultra-high resolution camera capable of taking photographs of up to 120 megapixels for ANPR purposes.
The camera’s resolution is so great that it can be placed some distance from the scene – at the top of a high building, for example – and carry out ANPR surveillance over several streets simultaneously. Speed or red light enforcement are among the potential uses. The typical range of cameras used for ANPR purposes is five to 20 megapixels.
“I’m not aware of any similar cameras,” said SVS-Vistek technical marketing specialist Stefan Waizmann. “I don’t know of any other ANPR solution like this.” The new camera was launched in December 2017. “We know other people are working on solutions like this, but right now there are no solutions with this kind of high-resolution cameras on the market.”
The new camera has been highly successful, with significant numbers sold, said Waizmann. It is “extremely robust”, capable of operating in extremes of temperature and imposes a very low system load on the accompanying computer system.
