OLDSMAR, Fla. — PlateSmart Technologies announces the integration of its ARES automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) software with network cameras manufactured by IP surveillance solution provider Vivotek.

PlateSmart, based here, says its ALPR software can be seamlessly integrated with virtually any camera or video management system (VMS).

“Vivotek’s focus on perimeter security and traffic monitoring really made our partnership a natural fit,” states 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 U.S., the company’s ARES solution has been implemented throughout South America, Europe and parts of Oceania. PlateSmart’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, the company says.

The company offers both mobile and fixed-location solutions, which are designed either to function as stand-alone tools or to integrate with third-party software and hardware. ARES is said to provide provide real-time actionable intelligence with license plate number, state jurisdiction and vehicle make recognition for complete situational awareness.

Vivotek’s portfolio of solutions include network security cameras, video servers, network video recorders (NVRs), Power over Ethernet (PoE) solutions and video management software.

“The demand for automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) solutions is expected to increase rapidly around the world,” states Shengfu Cheng, director of Vivotek’s marketing and product development division. “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.”
