An LPR unit is a device that captures license plate numbers. An LPR unit typically includes an LPR camera and a context camera. These cameras can be incorporated to the unit or external to the unit.

AutoVu™ Sharp is the LPR unit used in Security Center AutoVu™ solutions. The Sharp includes license plate capturing and processing components, as well as digital video processing functions, enclosed in a ruggedized casing. Sharps can be deployed in mobile and fixed installations.
  • Mobile AutoVu™ installation: The Sharp camera is mounted on a vehicle and is integrated into Genetec Patroller™ (the in-vehicle software of the AutoVu™ LPR system), which in turn is integrated into Security Center. The LPR Manager detects mobile Sharps through the AutoVu™ Genetec Patroller™ system they are connected to.
  • Fixed AutoVu™ installation: The Sharp camera is mounted in a fixed location, such as on a pole, and integrated directly into Security Center. The LPR Manager detects fixed Sharps directly through the Security Center discovery port.
