SharpV fixed ANPR camera

November 2016 Access Control & Identity Management, Integrated Solutions, Products

Genetec has announced its AutoVu SharpV, a new fixed ANPR (automated number plate recognition) camera with onboard processing, precise settings, easy and flexible installation and affordable pricing. The AutoVu SharpV camera is expected to be available in early December 2016 from Genetec channel partners and resellers.

AutoVu SharpV is designed for fixed ANPR installations. It can be tied into citywide video surveillance systems to improve forensic investigations, reporting, monitoring, and is ideally suited for controlling access to corporate facilities, as well as managing off-street parking facilities. The SharpV-ITS model will offer a solution specifically targeted at the intelligent transportation sector.

Featuring a completely new design that makes it easy for integrators to install, the AutoVu SharpV can be easily mounted on walls or poles. With power and communication transferring through a Power-over- Ethernet plus (PoE+) connection, and a varifocal lens design that allows installers to easily adjust the focal distance of the camera on site for optimal image capture, the new SharpV simplifies system specification and provides flexibility during deployment.

With high-definition ANPR and context cameras and onboard processing in a single device, the SharpV can detect and read any type of licence plate on the edge, and includes various analytics such as vehicle make and direction of travel.

“The new AutoVu SharpV is the result of over 15 years of specialised ANPR design experience, so it’s much more than an upgrade. It features premium performance without any of the challenges that often accompany ANPR projects. Not only does it include all the features of previous generation Sharp ANPR cameras, but it also brings a whole new level of image precision, combined with ease of installation at a lower price point. With our new SharpV, ANPR has never been easier,” said Chris Yigit, program manager for AutoVu.

The SharpV can also be integrated with Omnicast, the IP video surveillance system of Security Center, the Genetec unified security platform. The SharpV can simultaneously stream live video to Omnicast, doubling as video surveillance unit and recorded video can be associated with ANPR hits to enhance awareness and investigations. SharpV also supports the AutoVu Free Flow parking enforcement module to increase parking enforcement efficiency by providing a real-time inventory of vehicles parked illegally in monitored parking lots.
