IRIS Multi-Lane ALPR Camera with Dual OCR

High resolution, motorized lens, dual OCR camera for versatile applications

The PIPS Technology™ IRIS multi-lane camera is a cost effective and easy-to-deploy ALPR camera that expands your capabilities in all license plate recognition applications.

The IRIS camera has dual OCR (Infrared & color) which enables the camera to detect and read license plates of variable retro- reflective quality, or that have been deliberately altered.  This camera provides high quality color overview in low light. With sufficient ambient lighting, the camera can detect and read entirely non-retro reflective license plates.

The IRIS camera incorporates a quad core OCR processor providing extra fire-power for faster detection with highly accurate license plate recognition. Incorporating a remotely adjustable zoom lens with a wide field of view and long focal range, the IRIS camera is a versatile ALPR solution covering a variety of end user applications.  Whether used for safety and security, free-flow tolling, low-emission zones or access control, IRIS delivers the best-in-class results in all the various applications.

 

Features

  • 5MP sensor; 2K and 2.5K high resolution.
  • Multi-Lane coverage
  • Detect multiple plates in single field of view
  • Motorized lenses in both IR and Color Overview
  • Dual Channel OCR (IR and color)
  • H264 high – resolution contextual color video streaming
  • Hight quality color overview in low light situation
  • Powerful processing capability with Quadcore CPU
  • Flexible data storage
  • Remotely adjustable zoom, focus, aperture and IR cut filter

Benefits

  • Cost Effective
  • Easy to deploy and redeploy
  • Superior recognition accuracy in all conditions
  • Detect and read license plates of variable retro-reflective quality
  • One camera that covers most eventualities as deployed

Fixed Wide Lane ALPR Camera P492

Fully integrated, web-enabled camera with added power for a wider field of view

The newest member of the PIPS fixed ALPR camera family, the PIPS P492 camera is a self-illuminating, LED Infrared (IR) camera for high performance image processing, contained within a single water tight, sealed enclosure.
Developed in-house, the camera’s embedded Optical Character Recognition (OCR) engine offers customers a single point of accountability. Customers who value redundancy in their system will appreciate that P492’s on-board OCR reads license plates directly, independent of network or back-end system availability or workload.
The PIPS P492 camera captures both IR and color images to aid improved revenue collection capabilities in tolling applications. PIPS P492 is designed to capture and analyze multiple license plates in the same field of view, and uses a multi-exposure technique, commonly referred to as “Triple flash” technology, to effectively suppress ambient light such as headlights and bright sunlight. The camera is fully web-enabled and can be configured and monitored from a standard web browser.

Features

  • On-board PIPS OCR engine
  • 2048 X 720 pixels; color and IR
    cameras
  • 44 High power LEDs
  • Self trigger or external trigger mode
  • Traffic Lane coverage of 13.6 ft (4m)
  • Simultaneously captures and analyzes multiple license plates in the same field of view
  • Single cable for power, ethernet, serial, trigger, and streamed color video

Benefits

  • Superior customer service and accountability with a single vendor for both camera and OCR
  • Integrated LED camera and on-board OCR reduces system design, integration, and installation costs
  • High performance OCR improves accuracy and reduces operating costs
  • Improved system redundancy in tolling applications with direct license number output from each individual camera

Fixed  ALPR Camera P392+

ALPR camera with built in illuminator and processor.

Featuring high memory storage and fast processing speeds, the PIPS Fixed ALPR Camera is a fully-integrated ALPR unit incorporating camera(s), illuminator, and image processing within a single water tight, sealed enclosure. This basic camera is the smallest of PIPS fixed camera family and provides customers with 5 feet of horizontal traffic lane coverage.

Using a multi-exposure technique, commonly referred to as “Triple-flash” technology, this camera is able to suppress ambient light such as headlights and bright sunlight. This helps to reduce image exposure differences caused by plate-to-plate quality variations. Excellent plate detection is made possible using a patented technology that allows for real-time, video triggering upon plate presence. A vehicle presence trigger input is also available for capturing vehicle overview images when no license plate is present.

Features

  • Supports 3.5G, GPRS, and EDGE wireless connectivity (optional)
  • Optional GPS unit add-on
  • Optional integration with DSRC, radar, weigh-in-motion, or ticketing systems
  • Single cable used for power, Ethernet, serial, trigger, and streamed color video
  • 96 IR LEDs configured with various beam widths to suit application

Benefits

  • Durability and longevity in a variety of operating environments
  • Proven, high levels of OCR accuracy
  • 5 feet of horizontal traffic lane coverage
