OLDSMAR, Fla. — PlateSmart Technologies has entered into an agreement with video management software (VMS) provider IPConfigure to integrate the PlateSmart ARES automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) software into IPConfigure’s Orchid VMS.
“The PlateSmart ARES ALPR solution has true object recognition,” says Mike Budz, director of sales, PlateSmart. “That allows ARES to determine not only the license plate number, but also the vehicle jurisdiction and make. And as a software-only solution, it integrates seamlessly with the IPConfigure Orchid VMS, sending data that its rules and events management can use for triggered responses.”
IPConfigure’s Orchid VMS provides local and remote access to live and recorded video through a web browser interface. Orchid supports over 2,500 IP cameras through the ONVIF Profile S specification.
Both Orchid and ARES can work with an unlimited number of cameras, providing customers flexibility across locations and devices, according to the company.
PlateSmart says because ARES works on virtually any camera platform, existing IPConfigure customers need not “rip and replace” their camera hardware to avail themselves of ALPR.
“We are excited to be partnering with PlateSmart as part of our Application Partner Platform program,” says Christopher Uiterwyk, president, IPConfigure. “With this integration, PlateSmart ARES can now appear natively in our IPConfigure Orchid VMS and offer customers an ALPR solution with valuable data in one intuitive interface.”
The PlateSmart ARES ALPR solution is available now through IPConfigure resellers and system integrators.
