Extreme Announces Alliance with Vigilant Video

  • Extreme CCTV International Inc., a division of Extreme CCTV, announces that Vigilant Video of Livermore, CA, has selected Extreme's imaging technology for integration into its flagship CarDetector license plate recognition (LPR) system platform. CarDetector, which is targeted for important law enforcement applications, recently passed trial-testing with Cisco's 3200 Series mobile access router, resulting in automated intelligent license plate reading through Cisco's city-wide wireless Mesh networks.
  • Custom engineered for advanced performance, Extreme's exclusive camera design for the project is derived from its popular REG product family, originally developed at Derwent Systems, Extreme's UK-based Center of Excellence for license plate capture. REG is now installed at thousands of locations for a variety of mobile and fixed applications including highways, gated communities, tolling stations, parking infrastructure and industrial sites.
  • Test trials have successfully demonstrated the effectiveness of Extreme's imaging technology in the CarDetector system platform and Vigilant has already placed initial orders for Extreme's exclusive design. Customer details and sales revenue projections are being withheld for confidentiality.
  • "We selected Extreme's license plate imaging technology for its outstanding performance, especially for North American plates," says Joe Harzewski, VP sales & marketing of Vigilant Video. "The effectiveness and reliability of Extreme's technology make it an imperative component of our CarDetector™ system."
