AutoVu SharpV

Genetec’s AutoVu SharpV Camera is an advanced automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) device that offers premium performance for various applications. This device combines innovative technology and features to deliver high-quality, reliable license plate recognition and vehicle analytics performance. Below are the key features and benefits of the AutoVu SharpV Camera:

Key Features

  • High-Resolution Sensors and Motorised Lenses: The SharpV ALPR camera has higher-resolution sensors and motorised lenses that feature auto-focus. This combination ensures the capture of clear, high-quality images for accurate license plate recognition.
  • Machine Learning-Optimised Processor: The device incorporates a machine learning-optimised processor, enhancing its ability to deliver high performance in recognising license plates and analysing vehicle data.
  • Onboard Processing and Illumination: The SharpV includes two high-definition cameras with onboard processing and illumination. This setup allows images to be processed directly on the device, reducing the data load on the network and server.
  • Wide Field-of-View: It covers a wide field of view, ensuring comprehensive coverage whether day or night. This feature helps manage off-street parking lots, facilities, and significant city access points.
  • Connectivity and Deployment: The device can be connected to power and data using a single off-the-shelf Ethernet cable, simplifying its deployment. It also supports 4G/LTE connectivity for enhanced communication capabilities.
  • Physical Access Control Capabilities: When paired with the Synergis™ Cloud Link appliance, the SharpV delivers physical access control capabilities, allowing access to be managed based on vehicle license plates.


  • Versatility: The SharpV suits various applications, from parking management to security monitoring at city access points. Its ability to stream ALPR and video data to the Security Center, Genetec’s security platform, allows integration with other security systems.
  • Streamlined Deployment

    The AutoVu SharpV was designed to speed-up system specification and deployment. With varifocal cameras and powerful processing built into a single Power over Ethernet plus (PoE+) enabled device, the SharpV provides flexibility during installation, giving you the ability to adjust the cameras on-site for optimal plate reading.

    Powerful Analytics on the Edge

    With built-in NPR analytics and processing onboard, the AutoVu SharpV reduces the amount of data on your network, as video is processed on the camera and sends only the information you need to the server. Maintaining advanced intelligence onboard allows you to expand the power of AutoVu analytics to more lanes or lots without increasing throughput or processing load on your servers.

    Key Features

    • Powerful processor capable of higher number plate read rates across a wider variety of plates.
    • Industry leading OCR engine and fuzzy matching to increase accuracy.
    • Built-in illumination for day and night operation.
    • PoE+ power and network connectivity.
    • Deploy in virtually any environment with an environmentally-sealed enclosure and IP67 rating.
