Taiwan’s leading footwear company and the world’s largest branded athletic and casual footwear maker, this Vietnamese shoe manufacturer makes nine of the top ten sports shoe brands in the world, including Nike, Adidas, Asics, Puma, New Balance, and Reebok.
At peak hours of operation the factory experiences an explosion of traffic with over 2000 motorcycles entering or leaving the shoe factory – all of which need to be cleared by security.
As part of ongoing efforts to keep the factory running efficiently and securely management sought out a technology platform that would help them mitigate motorcycle traffic while simultaneously increasing security clearance efficiency and reducing loss.
Ultimately, factory operators decided to implement a modern VMS (Nx Witness) combined with license plate recognition technology (Vaxtor LPR) to capture and record motorcycle and employee identification information at entry and exit points. This made it possible to match motorcycle license plate numbers with the respective employee IDs to ensure proper access and reduce theft.
The factory wanted a VMS and integrated video analytics solution that would address the following key questions:
Vaxtor and Network Optix worked together to address the challenges raised by the factory’s team and developed a solution that gave factory operators the ability to address existing issues and the flexibility to continually improve operations. Nx provided the video management system (Nx Witness VMS) and Vaxtor provided the video analytics (Vaxtor OCR, Vaxtor ALPR).
Vaxtor develops high performance Optical Character Recognition (OCR) products and solutions, with a focus on Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR). Vaxtor’s VaxALPR and VaxOCR solutions are used in a wide range of market segments including parking, access control, urban, onboard and high speed. The number one ALPR brand used with AXIS cameras, Vaxtor’s OCR technology is widely recognised as one of the most advanced in the world.
