IP Video Management

Milestone Systems’ XProtect Analytics LPR system detects, reads and stores license plate information from a digital video stream. It is designed to control vehicle access for such applications as traffic surveillance and law enforcement, toll and parking management, gas stations, transportation or any other scenarios and situations where there is a need for registration, recognition and detection of vehicle license plates. The system works when it receives video streams from a camera. This video stream is analyzed and license plates are automatically detected. The license plate information is then checked against the system that determines which actions are initiated automatically, such as opening a gate barrier for specific cars or sending an alarm.
