ExtremeS License Plate Camera Success
REG cameras combine the latest in opto-electronic CCD technology with active-infrared imaging technology to capture plates traveling at 60 mph (100 kph) at high resolution, producing 30 frames/second while shuttering at speeds as high as 1/1500 second. “We believe the REG license plate reading (LPR) camera is industry’s finest LPR camera, and it fits well with Extreme’s growing portfolio of unique high-specification surveillance technology products,” says Jack Gin, President and CEO of Extreme CCTV. The success of the REG program has warranted the development of additional product models. Extreme CCTV will be releasing three additional REG models in 2005 to meet demands for specific performance, portability and mobile versatility. In the United States, REG has been credited with helping authorities identify two individuals of interest on a Homeland Security terrorist watch list. REG has experienced strong interest from systems integrators in Europe and North America. In Europe, most REG cameras are applied to software-based Automatic Number Plate Reading (ANPR) systems, while in North America, most REG cameras are connected to Digital Video Recorders (DVRs). The compatibility to both DVR and ANPR systems have contributed to the popularity of REG for security usage around the world.
