Designed ANPR Solutions:
ANPR for Town Centres:
Originally designed in the mid 1990's our ANPR systems have always been able to connect over low cost broadband lines and more recently 3 and 4G data links. Built into our ANPR Director as a secure VPN client combined with tampering monitoring and real time watchdog and PC health reporting including temperature and disk space.
Our ANPR director also uploads all the images captured on the ANPR Engine for central storage and no local data is retained at the ANPR site. These same solutions have be rolled out to municipal waste sites, managing traffic flow analysis and reporting on regular vehicle movement.
A single Videcom ANPR Manger Server installed into a Town or City Centre CCTV control room can manage the ANPR traffic from multiple camera sites, including high volume arterial roads as well as municipal car parks and public parks.
Transportable and remotely connected ANPR:
Broadband VPN technology adopted by Videcom for remote ANPR is the most cost effective use of this powerful data gathering tool, eclipsing the conventional direct video feed camera to central engine/management solution.
Remote sites record video, analyse plate information and forward this on securely to our central SQL secure database.
Director provides an interface between the ANPR camera or decoding engine and our SQL database. Director provides housekeeping, health monitoring and interface directly to gate controls and LED signage. Director also handles communication channels over mobile 4G and broadband networks as well as contact alarm monitoring. Director can continue to work stand alone when communication paths are interrupted, and update the database on reconnection. Data consists of up to 3 images as well as the vehicle plate plus time & date information.
Monitor is the workhorse of the system continuously collating the data from all the Directors, sorting the images into the correct storage locations and synchronising the SQL database.
Monitor also receives health information from the Directors and produce email and text SMS alerts when appropriate. Monitor also works with the Directors sending software patches and target vehicle data, white and black lists.
Manager is our central configuration tool, setting up the induvial traffic lanes, email server details, users, administrators and access levels. Manager allows the import of large target databases and also provides some direct search tools. Manager is normally installed on the central ANPR server.
Our ANPR user interface with and easy to use menu based system and power search engine. Our search tools provide a flexible detailed yet simple to operate filter enabling the display and evaluation of target vehicle data and events.
Client will display results that can then be used to produce graphs, statistical information and access to stored video replay. Client incorporates special software modules such as car park manager, ANPR for Forecourts and traffic flow analysis.
Videcom Security Ltd, Secure in our vision.
ANPR Case Studies
Municipal waste sites and council utility yards, modern HD ANPR system with a mix of IP surveillance cameras and ANPR, system over 8 sites and connected back utilising secure VPN networking to a central ANPR Manager. Each site has its own VNR network recorder with bolt on LPR ANPR reading engine and Videcom Director.

With our latest Client version the customer is able to recall live video steams from the remote servers. Videcom following successful tender designed, installed and now maintain this major ANPR system.
Videcom was engaged to provide a 31 day traffic survey of major motorway toll booth. The data was collected by ANPR Manager and at the end of the 3 days was presented to the customer along with a copy of client enabling them to sort and filter the data set.
In addition Videcom also provided some reports based on client requests which included traffic flow per hour per direction. Vehicles using the toll road in both directions and traffic only using it one way.
Town Centre ANPR:
Hertfordshire Constabulary under the direction of the Chief Constable Frank Whiteley engaged with Videcom SIA St Albans control room staff on a new initiative to utilise the City Centre Perimeter ANPR system designed and installed by Videcom in back in 2005.
Such has been the success of the operation in not only detecting vehicle related offences but also significant arrests on other criminal related activities. As reported in the Herts Advertiser 10th March 2009 both Police, the Council and members of the public have been reassured by this innovative approach which did not result in the need for Police vehicle intercepts, all foot patrols.
