MESSOA innovative license plate capture camera with overview functionality

Product Profile

End users often ask ANPR cameras to play a dual role: plate recognition and overview monitoring. But when cameras are tasked with capturing plates while simultaneously providing wide-area coverage, their performance suffers. MESSOAdeveloped the SCR506R specifically to address this issue. The camera delivers uncompromising close-range number-plate capture (for reflective plates) and overview-monitoring performance.

The SCR506R features MESSOA's innovative CatchALL™technology. An innovative solution to the main challenges faced in traffic surveillance, CatchALL™ technology enables the camera to ignore extraneous information on number plates and even eliminates headlight glare. The SCR506R is a comprehensive solution that requires no external LPR software: reflective plates can be visually identified directly from the monitor. The camera also features integrated Day/Night overview functionality that facilitates monitoring of surrounding areas and delivers information on vehicle type, colour, and shape.

Equipped with a powerful 850nm IR LED, the SCR506R works perfectly even in total darkness to deliver clear and sharp plate captures. The camera's varifocal IR-corrected lens and IR day/night mode keep it in focus day and night, optimizing its round-the-clock image-capture capabilities. In short, the SCR506R delivers the kind of reliability and day-and-night surveillance-and-capture performance crucial to maximizing the efficacy of LPR.


  • Reflective plates: optimized to capture reflective plates.
  • Day / night overview functionality: monitors surrounding areas, gathering information on vehicle type, colour, and shape.
  • 24-hour surveillance: ICR day/night switching enables the camera to adapt to diverse lighting conditions.
  • Powerful IR: a high-powered LED helps minimise energy usage.
  • Wide field of view: captures a wide 3-8m (10-27 ft) field.
  • Rain guard / extendable sunshield: minimise the effects of rain and sunlight on image quality.
  • Easy installation: a cable-management bracket facilitates installation in any location.
