"Cameras are widely used to enhance traffic safety, for example to observe hard shoulder lanes or to detect incidents. However, cameras in traffic can serve purposes beyond the security of traffic itself: imagine how detailed images of vehicles and drivers can facilitate the chase of criminal suspects after a robbery, provide support in amber alert cases, combat terrorism etc.
Circumstances in traffic can create quite a challenging environment to capture high quality film and images. Just think about the high speed at which vehicles move, density of traffic, dark areas at night and road infrastructure such as tunnels. Moreover, the requirements for traffic monitoring are high with detailed images of license plates and face recognition being standard.
The Ampleye | Nox-20 camera series are high light sensitive, low pixel noise and high resolution cameras designed and optimized for the security and surveillance market. The built-in Multi View Architecture technology (MVA) features simultaneous access to different regions-of-interest. ONVIF compliancy allows seamless integration with many (existing) video management
MVA provides the maximum relevant image information, utilizing minimum bandwidth.
The Ampleye | Nox-20 is particularly suitable to deal with these challenges with the following features:
High resolution to see the smallest details
Global shutter means no skew images of fast moving objects (as well as in vehicle)
Up to 30 fps so the area to be covered by cameras to capture moving objects can be smaller
Multiple video streams to monitor each lane separately, optionally motion detection triggered
Wide Dynamic Range and High Dynamic Range to get the most out of an image: see the overview and details in a tunnel or dark alley
Zoom in without losing the overview with live and retrospect PTZ
