Everyone Convinced Video Analytics Does Not Work?

By: John Honovich, Published on Aug 09, 2009

A new blog on video analytics has been added. In it, an individual listed on LinkedIn as an ADT application manager [link no longer available], laments, "everytime if I talk about Video Content Analysis most people try to convince me by the fact that it won’t work!" 

The good news (for analytics providers) is that his blog is pro-video analytics. The bad news is that statement is another negative sign of the state of video analytics.

The video analytic vendors really need to do something to counteract this trend (and more over-marketing is not the solution). It's poisoning the market not only today but for years to come.
