A gated community in Zaragoza San Lamberto, Spain needed to install a surveillance camera near their front gate. This camera had to capture all information about a vehicle. License plate, make and model of car, occupants, and the surrounding area are all valuable information should an incident occur.
Advanced LPR/ANPR software wasn't Enough - A camera had to go with it
DeInta, an SI technology company in Spain was asked to help solve this problem. They had plenty of experience in developing, designing and installing communications and audiovisual systems. DeInta had developed LPR/ANPR software, named CAPTUM, which was capable of obtaining a wealth of important vehicle information.
However, they needed a camera that was capable of obtaining razor sharp images to work in tandem with their cutting-edge software.
SCR505 infrared traffic camera laser was chosen because it could obtain all vehicle information
The SCR505 features high-contrast imaging performance that delivers sharp, clear license-plate captures, even of vehicles moving at 90km/h, in bad weather, and in low-light conditions. Equipped with a high-sensitivity SONY CCD and MESSOA's Lumii II technology, the SCR505 greatly enhances sensitivity while reducing video noise in low-light environments. Outfitted with a powerful 850 NM IR, the SCR505 works perfectly even in total darkness to deliver clear license plate images. It also features MESSOA's CatchAll II engine for optimizing video processing (glare from vehicle headlights is eliminated to ensure plate reading). The camera's rain guard and extendable sunshield minimize the effects of rain and sunlight on image quality. The SCR505 provides the kind of reliability and capture capabilities that ensures seamless integration when used in conjunction with external LPR software.
Money saved with no loss of service
The SCR505 was installed along with IR illuminators to form an auto gateway system. The need for an onsite guard was eliminated. Yet, drivers were never alone. If driver has any problem, they could use the broadcast system to talk to call center and receive help instantly.
