ARHungary has the Letugo and ParkIT modules. Probably not a go for open road, but is designed for automated access control in parking type applications.
Letugo is the software side - ParkIT the camera with integrated LPR.
Why is LPR software so expensive? Its based on OCR technology that is inexpensive. I understand that cameras for LPR need to support very high shutter speeds and special illumnation is required for night time use, the premium expense of the software makes a lot less sense.
Are there any examples of "value" oriented LPR software? either as plugins for a VMS or standalone software that takes a RTSP stream as input?

I think another reason is this is a specialized area of software application with a low economy of scale. Take QuickBooks for example. A very complex and powerful program that sells relatively cheaply when compared to things like specialized analytics software. And a lot better supported, too. Because they do billions in sales a year. We're impressed anytime a security software company does more than $50 million. And it's millions of buyers versus thousands of buyers. It sucks gopher balls, I agree.
Intertraff has "super walz" LPR camera it's standalone unit.... i think this will meet his requirement
