MEGApix Ai ANPR IP camera with MMCR

Combine DW's ANPR technology with an MMCR license to accurately extract a vehicle's attributes, such as make, model, color, and type, in addition to the vehicle's license plate.

High-resolution image with 8x optical zoom

DW’s Ai cameras deliver 5MP images in real-time at 30fps to accurately identify fast-moving vehicles and capture license plates. The Camera also supports up to 8x optical zoom, ideal for narrow field-of-view applications that focus on the vehicles’ license plates.

Hardware specialized for license plate captures

The ANPR and MMCR cameras are built specifically for numeric license plate capture. With high-resolution, long-range IR LEDs and 6-50mm lens, the cameras are ideal for recognizing the characteristics of vehicles, models, and license plate details at any lighting condition, both on color and B/W.

Image enhancement features for challenging lighting

DW’s ANPR and MMCR cameras are quipped with the latest image enhancement capabilities, reducing glare and harsh light that can interfere with the licesen plate’s details. The results are clean and clear images with 95% accuracy at capturing license plates.

Easy setup (no manual analytics calibration)

DW’s Ai allows operators to choose what to detect and where; with a user-friendly and straightforward UI, users can set up multiple scenarios specific to their monitoring needs without complex calibration.

Optimized Ai for the edge

MEGApix Ai's analytics engine is especially designed for the edge, working on the camera side to substantially reduce bandwidth consumption and accelerate response times.

Ambarella CV22 and CV25 chips with CVflow®

Ambarella’s CV22 and CV25 chips combine image processing, real-time 30fps 4K and 5MP video encoding and CVflow® architecture to provide the deep neural network (DNN) processing required for the next generation of intelligent IP cameras.

Star-Light Plus™ color in darkness technology

Star-Light Plus™ color in near-total darkness technology provides crisp, clear images in the absence of ambient light.
