IndigoVision, the leading supplier of complete IP video security solutions, has announced its half year financial results. The company reported an increase in sales revenues by 12% to £12.0m ($18.0m) for the 6-month period ending 31 January 2010, with operating profits of £1.2M ($1.8m).
Commenting on the results Oliver Vellacott, IndigoVision's CEO said: "These results are encouraging in a challenging economic climate, with sales comfortably ahead of last year and the second quarter stronger than the first. Whilst business and economic risks remain in the short term, we continue to have a high level of confidence in the long term future of IndigoVision."
IndigoVision has continued to focus on R&D with a 30% increase in engineering spent in the current financial year. This has resulted in the development of a number of new products, including the addition of a high-performance PTZ dome, HD IP camera range and a family of stand-alone ‘Green' Network Video Recorders (NVRs), which deliver much lower costs per terabyte of storage than centralised recording servers. The company recently unveiled a technology preview of ‘Control Center', its security management software, displaying live video from ONVIF-compliant IP cameras. IndigoVision is an active member on a number of ONVIF working groups and are totally committed to providing a complete standard-compliant end-to-end IP security solution.
