The good news for Datascope is that they had a $6 million backlog of their new wireless network and central station on December 31, 2004.  The bad news is that they can't ship it because a new software release is late. 

Datascope introduced Panorama just last July. Prior to the release of Panorama, Datascope was OEMing a system from Vitalcom (who was acquired by Data Critical).  With the acquisition of Data Critical by GE, Datascope was in the uncomfortable position of buying an OEM product from a major competitor.
