You won’t find PlateSmart Technologies on the exhibitor list for ISC West, but they will be on site, demonstrating its award-winning ARES automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) solution with a number of their camera and video management system (VMS) partners, three of which were fellow 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award Winners.

At co-‘ASTORS’ Award Winner, Axis Communications booth #14051, PlateSmart ARES will be demonstrating live, reading actual live license plates from a camera installed near PlateSmart’s headquarters in Oldsmar, Florida.

Furthermore, PlateSmart ARES open-architecture vehicle identification platform, which is fully integrated with the Enterprise Video Management Software™ (VMS) and Situational Awareness Platform™ from ‘ASTORS’ Award Winning Verint Systems, which you can see demonstrated in Verint Systems’ Booth #26049.

With ARES receiving live video from Verint Enterprise VMS, analyzing it, and generating license plate events and alarms into the Verint Situational Awareness Platform, users can take full advantage of the advanced vehicle identification and data analytics features that PlateSmart offers.

This integration also enables Verint to add vehicle recognition and analytics to its Situational Awareness Platform, which combines information from various systems and devices together improve response times and increase situational awareness.

PlateSmart, an industry leader in the vehicle recognition and analytics technology, and ALPR sectors is transforming into a complete vehicle recognition technology powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning

PlateSmart’s Vehicle Identification (LPR) likewise integrates seamlessly into fellow ‘ASTORS’ Award Winner Milestone XProtect, which allows fast retrieval of event data for quick video review of triggered events, and can be seen live and on site, in Milestone Systems Booth #18053 in the C2P pod.

ALPR – What Is It?

ALPR automatically captures all license plates as they come within view of ALPR cameras and sensors, autonomously checking the plates against a hotlist database which can include stolen and wanted vehicles, or vehicles owned or registered to wanted fugitives.

In some instances, this data is shared with local, state and federal agencies, creating a robust and efficient policing infrastructure.

ALPR is also increasingly being utilized in business analytics and counterterrorism sectors.

“Any ALPR camera can show their tool reading license plates from a preconfigured list,” explained Mike Budz, PlateSmart director of sales.

“PlateSmart’s live demo, though, shows the power of our object recognition AI, which captures data about everything the camera sees.” 

“It’s a significant advantage over the simple OCR that competitive solutions use.”

“And visitors to the Axis Communications booth can meet PlateSmart personnel and see ARES in action — in real time with real license plates — as well as at other partner booths.”

Finally, you can find PlateSmart ARES ALPR System in Geutebrück’s booth #24099, IPConfigure’s Booth #6109, Pelco’s Booth #20031, and Uniview’s Booth #13062.

“We’re excited to be joining our partners in demonstrating the power and flexibility of PlateSmart’s camera-agnostic ALPR solution,” added Budz.

“Our ARES software can turn virtually any surveillance camera into a license plate reader.

And because it integrates so seamlessly into a VMS, our partners’ customers can have access to ALPR technology for a fraction of the cost of competitive ‘rip and replace’ solutions.”

PlateSmart Win’s Platinum for the Second Consecutive Year in the ‘ASTORS’ Awards

Law enforcement and homeland security personnel, as well as those in the private physical security sector, are tasked with protecting citizens across the United States from criminals and potential terrorist actors which are growing more sophisticated with each passing day.
