Ways to Feed the ANPR Engine



Feed a variety of image formats, including JPG, JPEG, PNG, BMP, JFIF, TIFF and more.


Use our script to automatically upload images into our ANRP engine.


Use an in-memory variable without having to write the image to disk when calling our engine.


Get our sample Android App ANPR source code or Android App to deploy your mobile solution.



Use a Video Management Software that’s pre-integrated with Plate Rec, such as Blue Iris.


Send image upon motion detection straight from the camera, such as Axis Cameras!


Use the screen capture feature in Blue Iris and then play the video in full screen on the display.


Read each frame from a video file and feed that into our ANPR engine.
