STEMMER IMAGING and Microbus AV Ltd (Microbus) have signed an agreement that allows for STEMMER IMAGING to distribute the Rapier range of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras from Microbus throughout Europe whilst providing Microbus access to STEMMER IMAGING megapixel camera modules for use in their new Rapier HD product line. STEMMER IMAGING is Europe’s largest independent supplier of vision technology and services to OEM, system Integrators and reseller markets and Microbus is a leading supplier of cameras for ANPR and evidential video surveillance.
Mark Williamson, Director – Corporate Market Development at STEMMER IMAGING, said: “This provides excellent synergy for both companies. The Intelligent Transport market has been a growing sector for STEMMER IMAGING for several years and we are delighted to be able to add the ANPR camera range to our portfolio of ITS products, which also includes our own vehicle classification engine”.
“As a core technology provider, Microbus gains significant benefits as well”, he continued. “With our expert knowledge in high resolution, high speed imaging we are well placed to partner with Microbus in integrating the latest machine vision technology into their new Rapier HD camera range. This camera technology and our extensive expertise in camera interfacing and image data transmission standards will now be an additional resource available to Microbus’ customers and partners”.
The Rapier range of cameras from Microbus is available for fixed and mobile applications. High quality cameras, innovative InfraRed (IR) pulsed LED design and multiprocessor-control circuitry are housed in rugged, custom-designed housings. Ideally suited to both day and night usage, the IR illumination and integrated optics produce clear licence plate images and remove headlight glare. Rapier’s control protocol allows every parameter to be set, preset, recalled and adjusted remotely.
