“This level of performance, capability, reliability and technology has never been seen before in a single unit so efficiently designed. The reaction of partners who have tested the IQ to date has been overwhelmingly positive and we cannot wait to spread the word far and wide.”

Adds Peter Henden, the company’s technical director: “Rapier IQ brings together the best ANPR technologies in one package.

“Combining the right balance of video processing, cameras and illumination technologies has allowed us to create an intelligent camera we can proudly and confidently launch with the Rapier name for professional quality and performance. The Rapier 50IQ is a truly awesome product and watch this space for more from the IQ family throughout the year.”
