IDIS and 4Sight Imaging unveil number plate recognition
IDIS, a global surveillance solution provider, and 4Sight Imaging, a leading imaging technology company, have announced the successful integration of DirectIP™ with Veracity, a powerful and intuitive Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) software engine.
Proving ten times more accurate in independent comparative testing, the IDIS and 4Sight solution combines leading image analysis technologies with next generation DirectIP™ HD cameras, leveraging the latest system architectures and advances in solid state lighting to allow a wide, multi-lane field of view that is accurate across a wide range of weather, lighting and plate conditions.
The ground breaking solution eliminates the challenges traditionally associated with ANPR systems, by removing complicated set up, configuration and constant maintenance and system adjustments made possible through both companies’ patented plug-and-play technology. The result translates to low system configuration and simple, fast deployment that delivers benefits in terms of affordability and a continued low cost of ownership.
Showcasing the solution at ISC West 2015, installers and systems integrators saw how they can now offer customers a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) and affordable ANPR solution featuring:
- Industry leading accuracy across a wide range of weather and operating conditions
- High performance, reliability and image quality combined with ease of installation and operation
- International plate recognition
Future proof technology that inherently leverages new developments in camera hardware, system architectures and processing power.
Commenting, Brian Song, Managing Director of IDIS Europe, noted, “There is natural synergy between IDIS and 4Sight Imaging with both organisations committed to delivering high performance technology combined with plug-and-play simplicity that offers ease of installation and operation and a low cost of ownership. We can now offer exactly that in terms of an ANPR solution following the successful integration of DirectIP™ and Veracity.”
Brook Jackson, Managing Director at 4Sight Imaging, added, “ISC West proved to be the perfect platform to showcase the new DirectIP™ and Veracity integration.
The audience was impressed in terms of the wide field of view, image quality and high performance accuracy across a wide range of operating conditions. The complexities previously associated with plate recognition have until now restricted installers and system integrators from maximising opportunities from ANPR, having eliminated these the Veracity solution allows our partners to grow, protects their margins and at the same time ensures end user satisfaction. One major car parking organisation in the United Kingdom has already seen significant return on investment through improved accuracy since rolling out across their national estate.”
Used by a wide range of global customers across surveillance, car parking operations and access control, the Veracity and DirectIP™ solution delivers a
variety of tangible benefits including:
- Enhanced safety and security
- A low cost of ownership
- Increased profitability from car parking operations
- Improved surveillance operations with high quality evidential images
- Operational efficiencies through the automation of previously manual tasks.
