If you have ever provided law-enforcement with security video to help catch a thief or vandal, you would know that clear capture of the license plate is required to prosecute a criminal in a vehicle. General use security cameras can provide great capture of plate numbers in daylight, but not at night. The infrared from any outdoor security camera will reflect from a license plate at night, making the plate appear as a white slate. To capture license plates at night, especially from approaching vehicles with headlights shining in to the camera requires a professional License Plate Capture Camera such as this one.

This is an Enterprise Grade Security Camera that provides excellent video quality thanks to its high performance signal processor and 3MP Sony image sensor. The image sensor is a STARVIS starlight sensor that is rated with a minimum illumination rating of 0.005 Lux, which means it can provide brilliant color video in very low light, and noise free video at night in complete darkness aided by its infrared LEDs sensors. It is able to capture video at up to 60fps at full 3MP resolution, which is more detailed than 1080P HD. The built-in infrared LEDs provide 164ft of night vision in complete darkness, and allow the user to control IR intensity, turn the IR off, or set it to Smart IR. You can also take advantage of the Smart Scene Adaptive technology that allows the camera to switch between different scene settings automatically, enabling users to experience the camera’s excellent low light performance.

This High Frame Starlight Camera is a jack of all trades. It can function as a low light camera for general surveillance in day or night, or as a License Plate Camera to capture crisp clear footage that will help prosecution. Setting the camera for night time plate capture provides some configuration and fine tuning based on the amount of ambient light, angle of view and distance of approaching vehicles. We recommend placing this IP camera on a network first using a PoE injector to access its built-in web server that allows toggling the camera’s advanced image features. Once you have configured the camera, you can connect it to one of our NVR recorders to save video.

With advanced image features such as shutter rate control, IR intensity control, Super WDR and HLC you can set this Star Light Camera to record footage of vehicle plates passing by at up to 35mph in day or night. By utilizing these features you can capture plates from approaching vehicles within a 15 degree angle of view, even if the headlights are shining directly in to the camera.

The camera has a 2.7-13.5mm motorized lens that can be controlled over the network from a computer, NVR, or mobile App. Note that 3MP resolution video provides up to 30ft of discernible detail in recorded/live video, that means you can digitally zoom in up to 30ft away from the camera's focal distance to identify a plate number. When zoomed out all the way at 2.8mm, the angle of view from the camera is the widest at 110 degrees. At this widest setting, the 3MP sensor provides plate detail with a 4ft to 34ft range from the camera. Depending on how you set the optical zoom of the camera, you can set it to a viewing distance that is optimal for your application. If you intend to use this camera as a license plate capture camera only, it can be set to capture license plates up to 60ft away.

To give you an idea, below is a video sample of what to exepct. The video is taken from the 7-35mm Lens version of this Plate Capture Camera:
