Is Bundling Video Analytics a Good Strategy?

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jan 11, 2010

While increasingly adopted, we believe bundling video analytics with cameras and recorders is a reflection of failing initial strategies rather than an inherently strong approach.

Bundling video analytics is increasingly common. The 3 biggest acquisitions of analytic companies have fostered bundling - DVTel/ioimage, American Dynamics/Intellivid and Honeywell/ActiveEye. Beyond that, a number of the most well known analytic companies have evolved into bundled product offerings - 3VR's searchable video recorders, Cernium's managed video offerings and VideoIQ's iCVR.
