License plate capture is one of the most popular surveillance applications. IPVM has done extensive testing in this area already including:
With 4K becoming widespread, how does this impact LPR performance. Can wider areas be captured? Does the increased resolution really help?
We tested 4K cameras across low, mid, and high price points, with built in IR and external to see how they compare to 1080p for license plate capture.
The cameras / products we tested were:
We tested the cameras in low speed and faster speed scenes, both day and night, shown here:
Inside we answer these questions and more:
- Can I capture plates across a wider area with 4K than 1080p?
- What settings must be changed for proper capture?
- How does nighttime performance compare to 1080p?
