Stingray – A new modular ANPR camera for mobile enforcement vehicles

Videalert, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of intelligent traffic enforcement and management solutions, has announced the immediate availability of Stingray, a new modular ANPR camera solution. Designed for use with Videalert’s expanding range of multi-purpose Mobile Enforcement Vehicles (MEV), this modular solution features the latest generation of HD cameras with upgraded infra-red lighting to deliver enhanced capture rates and increased productivity in all parking and traffic management applications.

According to Videalert: “This innovative new camera solution will be fitted to all our new MEV platforms and can be retrofitted to existing vehicles. It can deliver higher productivity as number plate read rates of over 98% can be achieved in a wide range of applications with vehicles being driven at normal road speeds.”

Stingray includes the latest generation HD ONVIF-compliant cameras and all networking components in a simply styled roof-mounted pod that is easier to install as well as being less obtrusive than individual roof-rack mounted units. It features integrated, upgraded infra-red lighting which accurately captures crisp images of reflective number plates at distances of up to 40 metres. A full colour overview module also captures contextual images of vehicles in both daylight and challenging light conditions.

“Maintenance is also simplified as the complete housing can be quickly replaced in the event of a parts failure,” continued Videalert. “This minimises down time for MEVs and to further increase productivity.”

Videalert also provides a complete suite of software for rapid deployment in different enforcement and monitoring applications. The MEVs are fully compatible with Videalert’s hosted Digital Video Platform, allowing councils to quickly extend enforcement to other areas without having to make further investment in IT infrastructure.
