License Tag Capture


  • HD-TVI 1080p
  • Vari-focal Lens (5~50mm)
  • SR-LED & 5phi IR LED
  •  Recognition Distance 50′

The Tag Shot IV is the 4th Generation of our License Tag Capture Camera, and the very first to deliver license plates in High Definition TVI (1080p). Never before has License Tag Capture presented plate images in such clear, High Resolution images (more than a thousand TV lines).
The Tag Shot IV has a 5-50mm Varifocal (Manually Adjustable) lens to fine tune the zoom so that the license plates are large and crystal clear.

The Tag Shot IV can repeatedly capture tags out to approx. 50 feet (15 Meters).
The Tag Shot IV can capture tags accurately at speeds up to approx. 30-32mph (50 km/h).
This TVI Capture Camera delivers High Contrast Black & White video both day and night for tag pictures that are always sharp and crystal clear.

As usual, the height and angle of the camera placement is crucial in getting good, reliable pictures of license tags. The same rule applies to all tag capture cameras: No more than 30-35 degrees above or to the side of passing vehicles. Having the license plate in view for the longest time frame, increses the number of frames of video that you will capture.

The Tag Shot IV has combined the number and types of IR LED Lights to illuminate the license plates clearly and evenly. The Tag Shot IV combines 5 SR-LED’s for wide angle illumination (square LED’s), and 25 Five degree LED’s for long range lighting.

At the heart of the Tag Shot IV License Plate Capture Camera is a TVI Panasonic 1/3” 2.12 Megapixel Camera Chip that delivers a 16:9 wide angle picture that is Progressive Scan for uninterrupted, lossless frames of video.

The new Tag Shot IV operates on 12V DC and sips power at less than 5 watts (410mA). See our Specs for more information.

Make sure that you have a TVI capable DVR before ordering this camera.
