ObjectVideo / Mirasys Patent Agreement Examined

Author: John Honovich, Published on May 15, 2011

European manufacturer Mirasys is the first surveillance company to publicly disclose a patent agreement with ObjectVideo since ObjectVideo filed suit against 3 global surveillance manufacturers. In this note, we examine the significance of this agreement and the potential benefits for ObjectVideo.

The first interesting element of the deal is Mirasys's overall positioning. Mirasys does not develop video analytics. They are a VMS software / NVR appliance provider most similar in size and product offerings to Exacq. Mirasys does offer an analytics integration framework (called Carbon) that facilitates the use of 3rd party analytic offerings (most similar to Milestone's analytic integration). Mirasys's revenue and deployments are overwhelmingly VMS only, not video analytics.
