Genetec Announces AutoVu Flexreader
New Server-Based Solution Transforms Security Center Supported Video Surveillance Camera into License Plate Recognition Device
MONTREAL, April 16th, 2018—Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions has unveiled AutoVu Flexreader™, a new offering that brings powerful ALPR (Automatic License Plate Recognition) capabilities to suitable IP video surveillance cameras supported by the Genetec™ Security Centerunified platform.
AutoVu Flexreader enables organizations to move beyond simple plate capture and use existing IP cameras to identify and track license plates of vehicles entering or leaving their premises. End users can additionally benefit by extending their security operations—especially for businesses and retailers—to access the full ALPR feature set of Security Center AutoVu™, and take advantage of valuable data-mining tools and graphical reports.
“In the past, customers who wanted to take advantage of the unified ALPR experience offered by Security Center had to use dedicated ALPR units, which provided more capabilities than necessary for certain applications,” said Robert Amante, AutoVu Product Manager at Genetec. “With AutoVu Flexreader, we are making it easier for customers to take advantage of the deep feature set AutoVu provides. Now, they can re-use their existing security infrastructure equipment to augment their system with ALPR in a cost-effective manner. Interested customers should request a demo to ensure AutoVu Flexreader meets the requirements of their application,” added Amante.
For security professionals, AutoVu Flexreader can help identify potential threats as soon as they appear by automatically identifying vehicles entering a facility and match them to existing hotlists. With the flexible list management features of Security Center AutoVu, unknown or suspect vehicles can trigger specific alarms and activate video surveillance recording to help decrease response time and support investigations.
AutoVu Flexreader can also automate processes to improve efficiency. The system can open vehicle gates and garage doors when the vehicle of an employee or registered visitor is detected, or instantly notify staff of the arrival of suppliers and visiting VIPs. It can also provide security professionals with complete vehicle audit trails, including license plate number, date, time, coordinates, license plate origin, and associated videos to support investigations.
For retail organizations and other businesses with ungated parking lots, AutoVu Flexreader unlocks new business intelligence insights in the behavior of vehicles and visitors accessing their facilities. Using data collected by the cameras, AutoVu Flexreader can track who is accessing a facility and when, monitor repeat visits, measure length of stay, and more.
AutoVu Flexreader is expected to be available worldwide in April 2018 through any Genetec AutoVu certified integrator. For more information please visit: https://resources.genetec.com/en-datasheets/autovu-flexreader-datasheet.
