Video analytics vendor Vidient announced that it received a Red Herring award. Vidient has been struggling for a long time (and to be fair so have most of their peers). But a Red Herring Award is joke. Not only does Red Herring have little idea about the value of such products, Red Herring seems to have problems staying in business itself. These awards mainly serve to mislead and confuse buyers.
