I get asked about license plate recognition all the time. With the newer high definition megapixel network cameras it has become easier to achieve. It is all about pixels per foot. The more pixels on the object the more likely you are to capture a license plate.A minimum of 45 pixels per foot are required to be able to capture a license plate. This is measured in the horizontal field of view. Meaning the correct camera and lens combination is required to capture a license plate.
These pictures are captured with an Arecont 5 megapixel day night camera which is recorded to an exacqVision network video recorder.
