Exacq Technologies, a leading manufacturer of video management system (VMS) software and servers used for video surveillance, has announced a new integration with PlateSmart Technologies, a license plate recognition (LPR) software-only solution.
The PlateSmart software can be easily integrated into any exacqVision system. Operating on a Microsoft Windows platform, the PlateSmart software is compatible with a variety of analogue and IP security cameras. Once the PlateSmart software is connected to the camera and exacqVision system, it continually searches for license plates. The recognised license plate goes through the analytics, the metadata is sent to the exacqVision server and the plate information is then shown in the exacqVision VMS software. The information displayed in the exacqVision software includes:
- License plate number
- Timestamp of when the license plate was captured
- Camera name
- Longitude and latitude
- Path to the image
“We are pleased to announce the integration with a LPR software partner,” said Dave Underwood, general manager of Exacq Technologies. “As demand continues to increase for license plate recognition, it is important that we increase our LPR integration options for our customers.”
This new PlateSmart integration is available for integration with any exacqVision system within the United States. It provides exacqVision end users with a seamless addition of an LPR solution to their existing video security system.
“We are very excited to have Exacq Technologies as a VMS integration partner,” said John Chigos, PlateSmart founder and CEO. “Exacq is an industry leader in VMS technology, and PlateSmart is on the cutting edge of LPR. We expect great things from our work together.”
