Heighten Security and Strengthen Investigations.

AutoVu™ is the automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) system that extends the reach of security systems, increases awareness and supports investigations.

SharpV: Affordable, Highly Precise and Easy to Install

The AutoVu SharpV is an all-in-one specialized automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) device which combines two high-definition cameras with onboard processing and illumination in a ruggedized, environmentally sealed unit. Whether monitoring parking or augmenting security, the SharpV is built to read license plates and stream contextual video simultaneously within Security Center.

AutoVu SharpV:

Sharp: Specialized ALPR Technology at the Edge

With an all-in-one camera, integrated illumination, and processor, the AutoVu Sharp provides a versatile solution for fixed ALPR deployments. The Sharp reduces the network load by running algorithms and analytics locally and sending only key information, including plate reads and context images, to the back-office server.

SharpX: The Smallest High-Resolution ALPR Camera

Read plates at any time of day and at high speeds with AutoVu SharpX cameras. These cameras combine with a local processing unit to provide high-accuracy reads and analytics accessible in-vehicle for mobile applications. They can also be set up to cover multiple lanes for fixed ALPR deployments.

AutoVu SharpX

Increase Situational Awareness with ALPR

AutoVu™ automatically identifies vehicles accessing your facilities or traveling public roads, immediately detecting threats and unusual vehicle behaviors or assisting investigations. Unified within the Security Center platform from Genetec™, AutoVu™ merges ALPR with video

surveillance, access control and third-party systems. AutoVu™ is deployed across the world in fixed and mobile applications, such as city wide surveillance, vehicle access control, law enforcement and parking enforcement.

  • AutoVu™ Benefits

  • Maintain Control of Your Data

    AutoVu™ gives you total control over who can access your license plate data, both inside and outside of your organization. ALPR data collected is stored on your server, not in a central Genetec™ database, while Security Center’s Federation™ feature can enable easy sharing of data with selected partners and public safety agencies. AutoVu™ allows you to manage individual users’ access to specific lists and reports and define variable retention periods for ALPR images and data, automatically following your data security policies.

  • ALPR Cameras to Match Your Needs

    AutoVu’s ALPR camera portfolio offers high-accuracy options adapted to a variety of applications. Dedicated ALPR cameras, such as the Sharp and SharpX, offer maximum performance in fixed and mobile deployments, accurately reading license plates from vehicles moving at high speeds. In applications where vehicles travel at lower speeds, AutoVu™ Plate Reader Cloud provides an affordable solution to augment video surveillance cameras with ALPR capabilities.

  • Unify ALPR and Video Surveillance

    AutoVu™ is unified with Omnicast™, the IP video surveillance system of Security Center. ALPR events can automatically change recording settings and move PTZ cameras to cover a matched vehicle. Recorded video can be associated with hits, enhancing awareness and investigations. Fixed Sharp and SharpX units can also stream live video to Omnicast™, doubling as video surveillance units.

  • AutoVu™ Key Features

  • Insight That Goes Beyond ALPR
    The AutoVu ALPR system offers features that heighten accuracy and increase operator efficiency. In addition, ALPR reads are augmented with context images, time stamps, and GPS coordinates and can include wheel images for strict time-limited parking enforcement. By providing this contextual data, the AutoVu system helps resolve investigations faster and reduces ticketing disputes.

  • Unification for Greater Situational Awareness

    Manage your ALPR needs from a single unified security platform so you can seamlessly link ALPR reads to video and access control events. You can then use ALPR events to trigger actions and alarms across your entire security system. The Security Center platform allows you to investigate events across systems and provides unparalleled reporting capabilities.
