Across the United States, license plates have been changing plate design with new configurations.  DRN’s Reaper camera kit captures plates through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) resulting in successful scans.  We have identified a few state license plates with specific design templates that makes scanning more challenging and we are actively capturing new “raw video” data from these states to enhance the OCR.  The new OCR files will ultimately increase the quantity and accuracy of scan volume.  If you know of recently released new plates in your state or see a lower capture rate than expected, please contact our support team.  See if your state is on the list for Raw Video Capture below.

Active Data States: AZ, CO, FL, IL, IN, NY & UT
