Arecont cameras used in Korea license plate program
|Image inside tunnel|
Authorities in Korea have recently installed the AV3130 MegaVideo cameras from Arecont Vision of Glendale, CA in a newly constructed motor vehicle tunnel. The MegaVideo day and night, dual-sensor cameras provide sharp and detailed images of objects traveling at high speeds even in low-light environments.
“License plate recognition is one of the more challenging applications for video surveillance,” said Becky Zhou, the company’s director of sales in the Asian pacific. “The benefits of the improved image quality, low-light sensitivity, and high frame rates made possible with Arecont Vision megapixel cameras, combined with our low price points, make the technology more readily available to a large range of new customers.”
The system was designed by local distributor, ViewRun, a Korean company experienced in machine vision and surveillance, and was installed by their integrator, Korea Image Systems Co. Ltd. The high-resolution megapixel surveillance cameras from Arecont Vision were installed to capture the license numbers of cars that break the tunnel's traffic lights.
The Korean tunnel application uses Arecont Vision's dual-sensor AV3130 3/1.3 megapixel, full motion progressive scan IP cameras providing up to 15 frames per second in color, or day mode and 30 frames per second in black-and-white or night mode. Each camera contains a massively-parallel MegaVideo image processor chip that is capable of sustaining more than 6 billion operations per second, providing top-of-the-line resolution and performance.
ViewRun selected Arecont Vision cameras because of their low-light performance and the full motion progressive scan capabilities. The tunnel system also uses Arecont Vision's AV100 network video recorder software and the LuxRiot NVR video management software provided by A&H Software House, Inc., an Arecont Vision technology partner. The system sends video images along a100 base T Internet connection.
Arecont Vision is a manufacturer of high-performance megapixel IP cameras and its associated software, and all their products are manufactured in the United States.
