Milestone Systems Delivers Highly-automated Version of LPR Software

Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), announces XProtect LPR 2015 with general availability April 15.

As a fully integrated add-on component to the XProtect Smart Client, the 2015 version of XProtect LPR provides customizable match list fields and an extended reporting capability.

This not only empowers operators to take the right decisions when granting vehicles access, it also enables easy documentation of recognized vehicles with full details, video thumbnails and license plate close-ups.

With its new configuration wizard and extensive localized documentation, XProtect LPR 2015 is easier than ever to setup and configure, while ensuring high recognition accuracy with a new snapshot driven tuning process.

The 2015 edition of XProtect LPR works with 13 new country-optimized recognition modules and covers an extended geographical area of over 100 countries and states in total.

Actionable and Extendable with open platform technology

XProtect LPR 2015 enables customers to automate actions, which reduces the need for manual intervention. Examples of such cost reductions include:

  • Controlling gates to facilities automatically
  • Automating toll way/highway gates
  • Identifying cars belonging to VIP customers for gas stations or shopping malls
  • Sending alerts, if black listed cars are detected

Using the Milestone Integration Platform SDK the XProtect LPR can be integrated with external systems and applications further extending the usability of the system. Examples of this could be:

  • Statistical applications and business intelligence applications
  • Looking up owner information in national vehicle databases for integration with CRM or other relevant systems
  • Managing license plate lists automatically with information from external systems

Fully integrated - optimized work productivity

XProtect LPR is fully integrated with the XProtect Smart Client where the license plate functionality can be seamlessly used with maps, alarm management and other functions in the XProtect Smart Client

A dedicated LPR event log instantly presents detected license plates and presents the information together with the related camera.

New Reporting Function

XProtect LPR 2015 can easily document recognized vehicles in an XProtect LPR report that  meets user-defined search and filtering criteria. The PDF report includes video thumbnails of the recognized vehicles, close-up of the license plates, match list information and details about detection time of day.

Advanced match list handling

XProtect LPR uses match lists to group and determine actions for detected license plates. Examples of such custom lists could be lists of stolen cars, expected visitors or priority customers.

Custom fields in match lists makes it possible to link additional vehicle, driver or owner information to a specific license plate. This information is automatically presented in the XProtect Smart Client user interface or in reports, whenever the particular license plate is recognized. The new XProtect LPR module also supports wildcards in license plate list matching, which handles cars with similar license plate information.

Match lists can be managed via the XProtect Smart Client interface, where operators can add and remove vehicle registration numbers to selected lists, making it easy to ensure that lists are always fully updated.

Ease of Configuration

The new configuration wizard guides the system integrator through the configuration steps and provides recommendations to configuration settings and the physical installation. High recognition accuracy is ensured through a new snapshot driven tuning process.

“The new release of XProtect LPR enables us to be agile and react timely to the rising demands in the marked for highly automated and integrated LPR-solutions,” said Bjørn Eilertsen, vice president of Corporate Products Business Unit at Milestone Systems. “We see a growing need for automated license plate recognition in a wide range of application areas. XProtect LPR 2015 provides the opportunity for Milestone channel partners to explore new possibilities beyond the traditional security domain.”
