Exacq Technologies Announces Integration with PlateSmart
New PlateSmart integration combines exacqVision video surveillance software with license plate recognition software
(INDIANAPOLIS)—Exacq Technologies, a leading manufacturer of video management system (VMS) software and servers used for video surveillance, has announced a new integration with PlateSmart Technologies, a license plate recognition (LPR) software-only solution.
The PlateSmart software can be easily integrated into any exacqVision system. Operating on a Microsoft Windows platform, the PlateSmart software is compatible with a variety of analog and IP security cameras. Once the PlateSmart software is connected to the camera and exacqVision system, it continually searches for license plates. The recognized license plate goes through the analytics and the metadata is sent to the exacqVision server. The plate information is then displayed in the exacqVision client software and includes the following data:
- License plate number
- Timestamp of when the license plate was captured
- Camera name
- Longitude and latitude
- Path to the image
“PlateSmart is a great strategic partner for our video management system,” notes Tom Buckley, vice president of sales and marketing, Exacq Technologies. “As demand continues to increase for license plate recognition, it’s important that we make this powerful technology directly available from our client user interface.”This new PlateSmart integration is available for integration with exacqVision systems within the United States. It provides exacqVision end users with a seamless addition of an LPR solution to their existing video security system.
“We are very excited to have Exacq Technologies as a VMS integration partner,” said John Chigos, PlateSmart founder and CEO. “Exacq is an industry leader in VMS technology, and PlateSmart is on the cutting edge of LPR. We expect great things from our work together.”
