Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Aimetis for Its Visionary and Customer-Oriented Growth Strategies

Waterloo, Canada - 2007-09-19

Based on its recent analysis of the North American video surveillance software markets, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Aimetis Corp. with the 2007 Growth Excellence of the Year Award. This Award recognizes Aimetis for its technological innovation in embedding video analytics into digital signal processors (DSP) for edge devices, long before the market realized their importance.

"Analytics in video surveillance is experiencing explosive growth and one of the most important trends is the move to embed analytics into edge devices such as IP cameras and encoders," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst George C. Paul. "Aimetis is one of the few companies to have embedded video analytics on a DSP, having done so since 2004. Aimetis video analytics algorithms run on Texas Instruments' DM642 for camera solutions and Freescale's 8144 for multi-channel devices."

The company's intelligent video software includes the VE Series of video analytics algorithms, as well as Aimetis' open IP-surveillance software, AIRA v5.0, for robust video management. AIRA v5.0 is the first open software platform for video management to support 'smart' cameras and encoders with video analytics embedded in the device.

In Frost & Sullivan's research, Aimetis was one of the few players that consistently received positive feedback on the reliability of its products. "The accuracy rates for some Aimetis applications such as people counting are as high as 95 percent, and advanced motion tracking algorithm with the VE250 is as high as 99 percent accurate," notes Paul. "In addition, Aimetis protects its reliability by ensuring that its sales process, from the manufacturer to the distribution partner, sets expectations appropriately regarding the abilities of the software."

"We work hard to ensure our products and services are aligned to market requirements and our embedded solutions will continue to be a big part of our growth strategy", adds Marc Holtenhoff, CEO of Aimetis. "We are pleased and proud that Frost & Sullivan has recognized Aimetis for its performance and execution in this area."

Each year Frost & Sullivan presents the Growth Excellence of the Year award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing and sustaining growth through unique growth strategies in its respective industry. Frost & Sullivan, through an exhaustive selection process, seeks to identify a company that has exhibited excellence in all its functional areas; resulting in sustained financial growth and concluded that Aimetis best exhibited that excellence in 2007.
