License Plate Capture Camera / LPR Camera

License plate capture cameras, also known as license plate recognition / LPR cameras, are a specialized type of video surveillance camera designed to capture numbers and letters of license plates on still or moving vehicles. LPR cameras are designed with built-in software and hardware that compensates for speed, weather, and headlight glare. Regular security cameras typically can not compensate for these variables to capture a usable video that identifies license plate numbers. This page contains analog CCTV, HD-over-Coax, network IP LPR cameras. Please take a look at these sample videos of our LPR cameras.

Designing a surveillance system to monitor traffic and capture license plates is a more technical process than designing a traditional security camera system. CCTV Camera Pros has trained system engineers located in the USA. We can assist you in planning a system and provide lifetime technical support after the sale. Please email us your system requirements or call us at 888-849-2288 for assistance.

NOTE: Please Read Install / Positioning Guide prior to purchasing an LPR camera. You can also read or LPR camera FAQ here.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Here are some frequently asked questions that we receive about LPR cameras.

What is an LPR camera?

An LPR camera is a specialized type of video surveillance camera that is designed to capture the numbers and letters of license plates on moving vehicles.

Why are overview cameras recommended with LPR cameras?

Most LPR cameras are tuned to capture ultra high contrast video in black and white. This is great for capturing license plates but not very good for capturing an overview the the vehicle. Also, LPR cameras are typically focused on a small area (about the width of a single lane of traffic), so that the plate is clearly in focus. It is nice to have a color overview of vehicles and a clear capture of their plate.

What type of DVR is used with LPR cameras?

CCTV Camera Pros recommend using a DVR that is capable of recording at least 30 FPS (frames per second) at the resolution of your LPR camera. For example, this LPR camera is capable of 1080p HD resolution. These iDVR-PRO surveillance DVRs can record at 30 FPS @ 1080p resolution.

What is ANPR software?

ANPR software stands for automatic number plate recognition software. ANPR software is OPTIONAL to use with LPR cameras. ANPR software uses optical character recognition to identify the numbers and letters on license plate, then takes some sort of action such as logging the plate to a database or automatically opening a security gate. If your goal is to be able to read license plates on recorded video, you DO NOT need ANPR software. If you need some type of automation in addition to clearly recording plates, then you should consider a system that includes ANPR software.


License Plate Camera vs Traditional Security Camera

Watch the above video to compare the video captured by a license plate recognition camera versus a traditional security camera (non LPR) in a moving vehicle traffic application.


License Plate Capture with High Contrast LPR Camera

Although the standard definition analog LPR camera used in the above video has been replaced by a high definition 1080p camera, the video still provides a great example of what high contrast / black and white license plate capture looks like. The video segment includes daytime and night time capture. Notice that at night time, the only object captured by the video is the license plate. The vehicle is not seen. That is why CCTV Camera Pros always recommends installing at least one overview camera with each LPR camera.

License Plate Capture Camera Info / Presentation

License Plate Capture

CCTV Camera Pros license plate recognition (LPR) system, provides high-resolution video monitoring and recording. Our License Plate Recognition (LPR) system is an effective video surveillance and parking lot monitoring solution. Many parking lots have a high security risk rating. It is difficult for security personnel to monitor isolated areas or levels of large lots. Most lots need an effective digital surveillance system to provide live monitoring and continuous recording. These video surveillance systems provides protection and reassurance to customers and employees.

The license plate capture system activates the LPR recognition process in two ways. The first is via software video motion detection, which detects vehicles passing through the camera and illumination zone. The second is by input / output activation, which triggers recognition and recording upon I/O activation. The system supports both camera overview and picture-in-picture modes with ease of monitoring.
