CortexServer is a preloaded hybrid ANPR server for the automated detection and analysis of number plates. It is built with high-end components and its dedicated hardware ensures compatibility with analog cameras. Configuration and monitoring are carried out in the visual environment of CortexClient.

Accurate detection and analysis of number plates

Whether traffic is flowing or stationary, the analysis algorithms of CortexServer make sure all number plates are detected and analyzed. This reliable ANPR server accepts input from analogue cameras, IP cameras and video management systems. One single ANPR server can process the images of at least 8 analog cameras and a total of 20MP from digital input. Therefore, CortexServer is suitable as both a stand-alone solution and a part of a complex application.

In addition, the optional i/o card can operate external devices and systems like gates, barriers, bollards, security access systems and automated car washes.

CortexServer: designed for convenience and integration


The modular platform of CortexFramework is the foundation of all AVUTEC products and works seamlessly with CortexServer


This low-threshold development environment is used to configure and monitor CortexServer

Input from multiple cameras

One CortexServer can handle the images of at least 8 analogue cameras and 20 MP from digital input

ANPR server

Use of current camera systems

There is no need to replace current camera systems, CortexServer accepts input from any camera

Optional i/o card

An optional i/o card can trigger systems such as gates, security access systems and automated carwashes


Besides ANPR, CortexServer can be used for all kinds of video content analysis, different processes can run at the same time

  • All data can be stored in external databases, cloud solutions or a custom solution


CortexFramework, the foundation every AVUTEC product, allows users to build and manage computer vision applications from a single modular development and operational environment. By building a personalized configuration, ANPR events can trigger actions and alarms across any integrated system.

CortexFramework is based on open standards and has well documented API’s. The use of open standards ensures that third parties can integrate CortexFramework in their application.


The ANPR server is remotely configured and monitored with CortexClient. This visual environment for designing personalized ANPR solutions is intuitive and user-friendly, with a few clicks complex behavior is implemented by using the available building blocks (Axons).

Each Axon gives live performance information and provides its own settings to perfect the sharpness and clarity of the view.
