A key benefit of PlateSmart Technologies’ award winning ARES automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) software is its ability to integrate with virtually any camera or video management system (VMS). That innovation has yielded PlateSmart another partnership — this time with the global IP surveillance solution provider VIVOTEK Inc.
“VIVOTEK’s focus on perimeter security and traffic monitoring really made our partnership a natural fit,” said Mike Budz, director of sales, PlateSmart. “PlateSmart is excited to be working with a global leader like VIVOTEK, and we look forward to joining them in opportunities not only in the U.S. but across the globe.”
Called automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) outside of the United States, PlateSmart’s ARES solution has been implemented throughout South America, Europe and parts of Oceania. The company’s true object recognition technology — as compared to more simplistic optical character recognition (OCR) used by competitive ALPR providers — allows it to successfully read license plates in many different countries.
Shengfu Cheng, director of VIVOTEK marketing and product development division, said, “The demand for automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) solutions is expected to increase rapidly around the world. Combining PlateSmart’s expertise in ANPR technology with superior performance of VIVOTEK’s network cameras, this partnership drives a sustainable growth in the global market.”
