ANPR supplier teams up with camera manufacturer
Vivotek and PlateSmart Technologies join forces in the provision of software based ANPR systems using cameras from Vivotek.
PlateSmart Technologies has entered into an integration partnership with IP surveillance provider Vivotek. Through their association, the two companies will introduce PlateSmart’s Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) based video analytics technology to Vivotek’s growing global client base.
With this new relationship, PlateSmart affirms ARES ALPR’s reputation as among the security industry’s most versatile and affordable producs. The software is compatible with a wide range of off-the-shelf surveillance cameras, which enables users to add ALPR-based video analytics to their security systems affordably and without having to “rip and replace” their existing cameras. Having certified Vivotek cameras for use with ARES, PlateSmart takes its place in Vivotek’s Integration Alliance programme, an initiative to create security products that meet the needs of a diverse user base all over the world.
For PlateSmart CEO John Chigos, the new partnership with Vivotek is a significant step forward in advancing his vision of a safer world. “The law enforcement and security officers that protect us have hard jobs, and those jobs get harder every day,” Chigos said. “PlateSmart is committed to providing them with the best intelligence-gathering tools available. The more widely technologies like ARES are deployed, the easier those officials’ jobs become and the safer we all are. Working with great companies like Vivotek makes that goal possible.”
“Vivotek is continuing to expand cooperation with Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) software partners to offer customised systems and enhance customer efficiencies and capabilities” said William Ku, Spokesman and Vice president, Brand Business Division, Vivotek. “Through the strategic alliance, Vivotek will provide highly secure, efficient and professional IP surveillance products that can seamlessly integrate with PlateSmart’s Automatic Licence Plate Recognition (ALPR) technology. Combining the expertise of the two companies also drives the growth and development of the Smart City in the United States.”
