ObjectVideo Inc., a provider of video-analytics technologies, has granted ViDiCore GmbH, a European CCTV company with a focus on network-based video technology, a patent license that allows ObjectVideo’s video analytics to be embedded in ViDiCore’s “RIVA” products.
The patent license protects systems integrators, security directors and anyone who installs or uses RIVA intelligent Internet protocol cameras and encoders from ViDiCore, according to the companies.
As a provider of affordable, intelligent video security and business intelligence to the CCTV industry, ViDiCore recognized the importance of joining the fast-growing community of leading video-analytics manufacturers who have licensed ObjectVideo’s portfolio of video-analytics patents.
“At ViDiCore, we take a proactive approach to protecting systems integrators and security directors who use our RIVA products from intellectual property concerns,” said Achim Hauschke, ViDiCore’s CEO. “This agreement eliminates all those concerns for our partners and gives us freedom to continue to develop new and improved video-analytic features that meet our customers’ business intelligence and security needs,” he said.
ViDiCore is the 13th company to join ObjectVideo’s patent-license program, the company said. ObjectVideo recognizes ViDiCore and their RIVA devices as a licensed video analytics technology provider, said Chris Capuano, ObjectVideo’s general counsel.
“We appreciate ViDiCore’s proactive desire to protect its system integrator partners and end users with its licensed technology,” Capuano added.
