The license plate recognition software integrates with VIVOTEK’s VAST 2
VIVOTEK, the global leading IP surveillance solution provider, had been availing itself with PlateSmart Technologies’ award-winning PlateSmart ARES automatic license plate recognition (LPR) software integration. 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 plug-in. 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 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.”
