On the positive side, parking lots are one of the best common use cases for higher resolution in general, since they tend to be large areas and the extra pixels often make a material difference for objects further away from the camera.
The problem here is the "crystal clear wide shots' AND 'license plates at the same time'.
Not being able to do this is a reflection of the reality of modern technology and the common dimensions of parking lot.
Here's an example of an Avigilon 7K calculated in a fairly common size parking lot:
The camera covers ~20% of the parking lot at a ppf level that might get license plates. The other issue is getting the car's plate to line up with the camera, which is compounded when a single camera tries to cover a large area.
7K certainly has greater PPF potential than 4K for similar objectives. Here is what 4K looks like:
However, either way, viewing "an entire parking lot with crystal clear wide shots and see individual license plates at the same time" is not really realistic.
As an alternative, Avigilon would be safer with generic puffery like "Avigilon is the leader in parking lot surveillance coverage for capturing wide views and license plates" or "Avigilon is the best at parking lot coverage and license plate capture."
