Vista, Reditron's premier brand of CCTV equipment, received the prestigious Product of the Year Award for VNPR, Vista's Automatic Number Plate Recognition system. The award was made at the industry's annual Security Industry Awards 2002 dinner, sponsored by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) and held during IFSEC 2002.
VNPR is capable of reading a moving vehicle number plate - day and night - from up to 50 m away and at speeds of up to 160 kmph. The unit comprises a hi-resolution monochrome Exview camera with state of the art VNPR recognition software. Five models are available and are capable of number plate capture from distances of 5 to 50 m.
The VNPR provides a flexible method for monitoring and controlling traffic flow and can be used for a variety of applications such as car park ticketing, taxation assessments, road tolls, access control, hotels and gated communities.
The system quickly locates, reads and interprets vehicle number plates before comparing the result with a central database. This in turn is used to trigger events such as the calculation of car parking tolls, the raising of a car park barrier, the display of relevant messages on LCD screens or the alerting of security staff. VNPR is supplied as a complete plug and play unit including camera, PC and software. Special optics, illumination, and filter technology allow the system to produce clear images day and night without additional illumination.
The system is designed to counter the effects of speed, reflective number plates and car headlights to optimise the camera's performance. No focus change is required between day and night (IR) operations.
