OLDSMAR, Fla. — Dec. 3, 2019 — Global IP surveillance solution provider VIVOTEK Inc. had been availing itself of integration with PlateSmart Technologies’ award-winning PlateSmart ARES® automatic license plate recognition (LPR) software. It recently strengthened that relationship with another PlateSmart integration: Powered by PlateSmart™.
“One of the benefits of Powered by PlateSmart is the ease with which it can be integrated with other business solutions,” said Webb Wang, chief technology officer, PlateSmart. “We integrated it with VIVOTEK’s VAST 2 video management system using a simple plugin. Powered by PlateSmart just reads the plates, extracts the data and sends it to VAST 2, where searches and viewing can be done.”
Built upon AI and deep machine learning, Powered by PlateSmart was developed to allow solution providers to easily extend their solutions to include the vehicle data PlateSmart can provide. This includes the license plate, its state jurisdiction, vehicle make and color. Soon Powered by PlateSmart will be able to address vehicle orientation (front, rear or side) and type for even more actionable vehicle data.
“We have had a strong and successful relationship with PlateSmart, and so we are pleased to be able to strengthen our bond even further by utilizing Powered by PlateSmart,” said David Liu, president of VIVOTEK USA, Inc. “Our VAST 2 is an easy-to-use IP video management software (VMS), and integrating Powered by PlateSmart allows it to become an even stronger tool for the user.”
PlateSmart Technologies developed the original software-only license plate recognition (LPR) solution, PlateSmart ARES®, which is compatible with virtually all video management systems (VMS) and IP cameras. Designed to function as a stand-alone tool or integrate with third-party software and hardware, PlateSmart ARES provides near-real-time actionable vehicle intelligence for complete situational awareness. The software offers true object recognition instead of simple optical character recognition (OCR), which allows it to read the plate as well as the state jurisdiction and vehicle make. PlateSmart has earned multiple industry awards for excellence in security technology.
