ONVIF announcedthat it is now live on GitHub, an online open-source development platform. The repository at github.com will help drive the development of ONVIF network interface specifications. ONVIF interoperability specifications are already publicly available as open standards and are implemented by more than 400 manufacturers of IP surveillance cameras, video management software and physical access control systems to enable communication between conformant devices and clients
The move will streamline administrative and collaborative processes while also leveraging the collective ingenuity of the global developer community. ONVIF interoperability specifications are already publicly available as open standards and are widely used as common communication interfaces between devices and software clients, such as IP surveillance cameras, video management software and physical access control systems from different manufacturers.
ONVIF hosted its 21st Developers’ Plugfest late last year in Rome, an event that highlighted the continued demand for interoperable solutions. More than 30 developers and engineers from 18 ONVIF member companies gathered for this multi-day event, which featured 164 hours of testing. Attendees tested their implementations of ONVIF profiles along with other ONVIF profile-conformant products. Developers could also test products independently for profile conformance.
ONVIF held its annual membership meeting in November, providing ONVIF members with an overview of important activities of 2019 and plans for the year ahead. Attendees heard presentations on the growth of ONVIF, as well as plans for new profile development. ONVIF Chairman Per Björkdahl highlighted the forum’s achievements over the past year, particularly the market’s continued support for the profile concept.
ONVIF® hosted its 20th ONVIF Developers’ Plugfest in early June in Tokyo, a milestone that emphasizes the continued growth and demand for interoperable solutions. Developers and engineers from 22 ONVIF member companies gathered at the three-day event to test their implementations of ONVIF Profiles with other ONVIF Profile-conformant products. Developers could test their products independently for profile conformance.
ONVIF® announced that its Export File Format, the ONVIF specification for the export of video from security surveillance recording platforms, is the new standard recommended by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for the exporting and playback of video surveillance recordings. In a research project commissioned by the FBI to aid law enforcement in forensic investigations, NIST worked in conjunction with ONVIF to adopt the Export File Format to serve as the FBI’s new minimum interoperability requirements.
ONVIF announced that it will be a featured speaker at the upcoming PSA TEC 2019, the premier education and networking event for systems integrators, to be held March 11-14, in Denver, Colorado. To highlight the role of access control in the burgeoning smart building market, David Busco of Anixter will present on behalf of ONVIF in the session “Driving the Future: How Interoperability Standards in Access Control Can Enable Smart Building Success” from 1 – 2pm on Tuesday, March 12.
ONVIF®, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products held its annual membership meeting in early November, with an overview of important activities of 2018 and perspective on the year ahead. Attendees heard presentations on the final release of Profile T in 2018, an advancement which represents how ONVIF keeps pace with technological advancements that affect product development and interoperability between IP-based physical security products.
ONVIF®, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, has surpassed 10,000 conformant products that meet its global interoperability standards, further broadening the organization’s offering and relevance in the IP-based physical security marketplace. This level of conformant products marks yet another milestone for ONVIF as it celebrates its 10th year as a standards organization, providing interoperability specifications for IP-based physical security products.
ONVIF® is celebrating its 10th anniversary, capping off a decade of growth and rising influence as a provider of interoperability standards to the physical security market. Beginning with a small group of competitive manufacturers who joined forces in 2008 and growing to 500 ONVIF member companies, ONVIF continues to refine and promote its specifications for interoperability between security technology devices and beyond.
ONVIF®, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, is pleased to announce that Per Björkdahl, ONVIF Steering Committee Chair, will be the featured presenter in the webinar ‘Physical Security, IoT and Open Standards’, on August 17, 2016, at 4:00 PM BST. The webinar is hosted by Memoori, an independent market research company that studies the physical security, smart buildings and energy management markets.
