Digital Ally Announces New Video Analytics Patent
Monday, December 30, 2019 | Comments

Digital Ally announced U.S. Patent No. 10,521,675 will be added to the firm’s patent portfolio. The ‘675 patent allows the software from recording video cameras to scan film frame by frame to capture and store legible vehicle markings, such as license plate characters.

The patent will be useful for law enforcement officers when conducting traffic stops and especially at nightfall when objects may be obscured by challenging lighting conditions and interfere with the camera’s ability to capture legible markings or characters. When a recording is activated by various triggers, such as vehicle sirens or signal lights, the recording camera system will initiate two base scans, considering ambient light levels, light gains, shutter speed and white balance. If vehicle markings are legibly captured, the system will automatically store and upload the frame in the company’s back-office solution for the law enforcement agency’s use.

The ‘675 patent will mark the sixth patent awarded to Digital Ally in 2019 and comes shortly after the issuance of U.S Patent No. 10,390,732, which allows for metadata captured by a breathalyzer to be embedded on video captured by the company’s video recording devices.
