i-PRO adds license plate and vehicle identification to latest Active Guard

TOKYO – i-PRO has released the latest version of its Active Guard application, adding support for Vaxtor automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) and make, model, color (MMC) vehicle identification.

“The latest version of Active Guard further demonstrates our commitment to an open platform approach as Vaxtor is the first third-party analytic to be hosted within the application itself,” said Philippe Henaine, Manager, Strategic Partners, i-PRO EMEA. “It’s a big step in the evolution that enables developers on the edge to connect to market-leading VMS effortlessly within a single UI.”

With Active Guard, operators can register specific characteristics in their watch lists and the VMS will send a real-time alarm whenever a match is identified. The same process can be set up for fast data mining of events during forensic investigations, and with its high recognition rates i-PRO said its ideal for a range of applications, including city surveillance, parking, access control, security, law enforcement and intelligent transportation systems.

The company said that Active Guard integrates AI analytics seamlessly into a VMS, such as Genetec, Milestone, or Video Insight, and appears as an additional function tab within the user interface. Requiring no additional LPR server, it enables users to easily manage AI-based analytics from multiple i-PRO cameras and allows users to easily set up sophisticated search parameters.

“You might purchase an AI camera with amazing features, but if you can’t make use of the data it provides in your VMS, you’ve missed the mark,” said Adam Lowenstein, Director of Products, i-PRO Americas. “Active Guard is the bridge between the edge and the VMS. Our plug-in ensures that all 98 object attributes are searchable directly from within the VMS from our cameras.”
