JDS Seeks Funding or Acquisition

Author: John Honovich, Published on Aug 16, 2009

According to V/B Research, IP video software provider JDS is seeking funding or considering a sale. One of the earliest IP video software developers, JDS projects total 2009 revenue of $2.5M USD.

Also, JDS may soon be suing your VMS provider. According to the report, they are pursuing a patent infringement case based on JDS core technology which JDS believes many competitive systems are based on.

It will be interesting to see what happens with JDS. They were quite early - for instance, they were the first company I remember marketing IP video software at US trade shows. However, I do not think they have maintained pace with many other entrants and I know rarely hear integrators or end users ask about using them.

[Update: JDS was never acquired. However, they have sued Milestone.]
