ObjectVideo Overview

ObjectVideo offers video analytics for security and business intelligence applications. One of the earliest entrants into the video analytics market, ObjectVideo partners with video surveillance manufacturers to embed their software in other's products. After years or struggling to build a viable large-scale software business, in April 2011, ObjectVideo launched an industry wide lawsuit campaign to 'defend' their intellectual property.
