Equipped for high-speed traffic conditions

VISCAM 1000 features a high-speed, 5-megapixel CMOS camera and intelligent triggering modes to ensure that each vehicle is captured in the best location within the frame for ANPR readability. This includes high-speed traffic, lane changes, and closely-spaced vehicles.

Real-time light sensing and exposure control

Advanced algorithms constantly check image saturation levels, sun position, and other factors to ensure the best possible exposure under the most demanding situations including high contrast from bright sunlight and shadows; glare and bright spots; headlights and nighttime conditions; different plate colors and styles; and much more.

Designed for seamless integration

VISCAM 1000 is equipped with JAI’s proven EN Protocol and user interface designed for fast integration with popular lane controllers and various back office systems over a standard 10/100/1000 BaseT Ethernet interface.

Here are a few applications where VISCAM 1000 systems are especially suitable

VISCAM 1000 is an ideal choice for integrator partners involved in a variety of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) projects.

Toll collection and violation enforcement

Accuracy rates of over 95% on readable license plates, and as high as 98%, have been achieved by VISCAM 1000 in actual Video Enforcement Systems (VES). No other company has achieved these rates under realistic operational test conditions.

Open road tolling (ORT)

VISCAM 1000 is a core element in systems that collect road tolls cost-effectively without the need for toll booth installations and radio frequency transponders. VISCAM helps these multi-lane free-flow (MLFF) tolling projects to maximize vehicle identification for toll collection or violation enforcement.

Section/average speed control

Unlike simple “speed traps”, average speed enforcement systems track vehicles over longer distances by matching plate numbers or vehicle images to determine if enforcement action is required.

Congestion charging

JAI traffic imaging systems are being used in leading-edge projects that charge road users who congest specific areas and/or times. The goal is to encourage smarter driving habits and the use of public transportation.
