New High Definition Technology Raises the Bar on License Plate Recognition While Lowering Agency Expenditures

A highway patrol officer is in the midst of his afternoon/evening shift when suddenly he receives a high priority Amber Alert and shifts into BOLO mode (Be On The Lookout.) Procedure dictates that he scan thousands of license plates across multiple fast-moving lanes, searching for an accurate match.  But, what if that officer makes a routine traffic stop in the midst of the BOLO when suddenly the scanner hits a match while he’s outside of his vehicle?

These are real situations officers find themselves in every day.  Yet, no license plate reader exists that can meet all these challenges … until now. Data911, a leading integrated mobile solutions provider for public safety, has successfully engineered the only High Definition (HD) LPR system available.

Most legacy analog LPR products are 640 x 480 pixels, are limited to capturing only a narrow angle, and optical character recognition (OCR) is further compromised by limited dynamic range which makes it vulnerable to poor lighting conditions.

By comparison, among the many advantages of Data911’s Digital HD LPR is its incredible 1920 x 1080 and 1280 x 720 pixel cameras, translating to 7 times higher resolution.  Another enhanced benefit of HD LPR technology, is the ability to detect and read a license plate from a wider range of angles. Their proprietary technology was designed to anticipate critical needs, such as instinctively switching to infrared mode at night, reading multiple downloaded hotlists, or automatically initiating a video recording after confirming a match even if the officer is away from his vehicle.

Integration is the foundation of Data911’s intelligent HD LPR system.  The technology works seamlessly with their Verus HD Video software and runs on their M7 in-car computer, resulting in a world-class comprehensive solution.  Together, Data911’s HD LPR system has quadrupled the performance of standard analog LPR.
