Aimetis has moved to VMS because the Analytic in early stage didn't bring so much revenues. Their revenue should be calcultated like for Milestone or Genetec, approx. 200 K$/employee Analytic doesn't generate higher value at the time being, vs VMS..
Now...the analytic is much more in the mood combined with Intrusion and access control. Having an analytic engines integrated to the VMS could be a great advantage. Very few have this, and some have to use complex external modules. I really thought that Axis would have purchased it, but Canon's initiative should have killed it in the egg.
