Woodside Capital on Embedded Camera Market

Woodside Capital Partners publishes a 85-page-big report on embedded camera market "Embedded Camera Status: At The Edge of Depth", dated by Apr. 2014.

Thanks to DM for the link!


  1. The mobile TAM is way off.... if you count both rear and front cams, the TAM shown in chart is more like half of what might be the actual number

  2. Alright, what a bunch of fuuuuiiieee! Talk about conflict of interest. This is Pelican imaging's VC investors!!! This is absolutely garbage data. Vlad, please put an advisement next to this data. Notice, they state it is an embedded camera TAM and only include the application areas Pelican can play in. Where's medical imaging? Where's machine? Where's scientific/military/defense? Tablets? Notebooks? Broadcast?Endoscopy? Biomettrics?

  3. Woodside capital is an investment bank, not a VC firm.

    1. I think VC is a close approximation. Definitely not a bank. Check out their webpage. By the way, they also manage distressed portfolios...
