Welcome to my first post on blogOV.
Since taking over as President in July, there has been strong interest from many customers, partners and connections for more information about all aspects of OV’s business. I’ve never been accused of being at a loss for words, so I thought we’d reinvigorate blogOV as part of an expanded reach-out to everyone in the market. Over the coming weeks and months, stay tuned to this space for a variety of updates – from the innovative work we are doing with cutting-edge analytics for a number of government agencies to the latest updates to our software and recent news from our patent licensing program. It is a very exciting time here at OV and I have the privilege of working with a very talented, motivated team.
To start off the conversation, I want to share some more information about our patent licensing program. My hope is that this post and the additional content I reference will help to clarify any misunderstandings that may exist and make it clearer what the program is all about. OV has been working on creating great video analytics for more than 10 years. As a result, our team of PhDs and computer vision scientists has come up with a number of key innovations to help improve the accuracy and efficiency of video analytics; we have patented many of these technologies. We are now working with most of the major analytics manufacturers in the security industry to license these technologies, ensuring that OV is compensated for their use of our intellectual property and, for patent licensees, give them the ability to build new and innovative products that take advantage of those patented – and licensed – technologies.
We have five existing licensees and expect to announce several more soon. To help explain the program and address many of the questions I have received, we have put together an FAQ (download a copy HERE) that gives a more detailed status update.
In summary, our patent licensing program is adding new licensees all the time and we’ve recently added a new set of benefits for our licensees to further help them build their business. We expect this momentum to continue. (learn more HERE)
Please have a read of the FAQ doc and let us know if it answers your questions. If not, feel free to comment below, give us a call or drop us a line and we will continue the dialogue.
