|With this new relationship, PlateSmart affirms ARES’ reputation as among the security industry’s most versatile and affordable solutions
PlateSmart Technologies, creator of the award-winning ARES video analytics software, is pleased to announce its new integration partnership with leading IP surveillance provider VIVOTEK. Through their association, the two companies will introduce PlateSmart’s disruptive Automatic Licence Plate Recognition (ALPR)-based video analytics technology to VIVOTEK’s vast and growing global client base.
Solution Integration Alliance programme
With this new relationship, PlateSmart affirms ARES’ reputation as among the security industry’s most versatile and affordable solutions. 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 Solution Integration Alliance (SIA) program, an initiative to create security solutions 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.”
Growth and development of Smart City
“VIVOTEK is continuing to expand cooperation with the world’s leading Licence Plate Recognition (LPR) software partners to offer customised solutions and enhance customer efficiencies and capabilities,” said William Ku, Spokesman and Vice president, Brand Business Division, VIVOTEK Inc. “Through the strategic alliance, VIVOTEK will provide highly secure, efficient, and professional IP surveillance solutions that can seamlessly integrate with PlateSmart’s Automatic Licence Plate Recognition (ALPR) technology. Combining the expertise of two companies also drives the growth and development of the Smart City in the United States.”
