License Plate Recognition (LPR) is a useful capability of video surveillance systems, and reseller Viewrun Co. Ltd. in South Korea sought to use LPR for the Ulju-gun surveillance project. In its most basic terms, LPR consists of license plate recognition software that interfaces with video management system (VMS) software and IP-based surveillance cameras positioned to view license plates. The LPR software “reads” a license plate and is able to convert the image to text.
In this case study Gistex needed a new video surveillance system to view and monitor its production activities 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
