Licence in the cloud

February 2017 News & Events, Surveillance

Visec, creator of the Visec surveillance software suite and the licence plate recognition cloud network in South Africa (LPR CLOUD SA) announced it has released software technology making licence plate recognition to the cloud more affordable. The Visec solution eliminates costly computer hardware associated with implementing licence plate recognition systems.

The result will provide a standalone alone licence plate recognition solution engineered for easy capturing, analysis and recording of licence plates all built into the camera and automatically sent to the LPR CLOUD SA. No PC or server is required, just a regular Internet connection.

Visec has collaborated with Hikvision, which engineered the camera that will be powered by Visec’s LPR CLOUD SA technology.

“This lower cost architecture offers the potential to significantly extend coverage of the LPR CLOUD SA to reach an even wider geographic location. Such a significant cost savings will also enable a rapid global market expansion of the Visec Cloud LPR that was not possible before,” says Gary Scagell, CEO of Visec.

The Visec standalone LPR camera is powered using edge technology which allows software developers to write camera apps, in a similar fashion to a cellphone running an app. The Visec licence plate recognition app will run standalone using the Hikvision camera’s processor and memory.

“We have the ability to identify specific areas of growth in viable niche markets while ensuring our clients have the most advanced solutions,” says Jason K. Bordbar, senior VP of sales and marketing, Visec USA. “Now we are able to offer a total cost of ownership for the Visec Cloud LPR at a 75% price reduction for typical deployments, thanks to this new camera technology. Such a drop in price point will enable Visec to implement cloud-based LPR solutions more effectively across emerging markets.”
