ONVIF, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, hosted its annual membership meeting late last month. Attendees heard presentations on ONVIF successes from 2014, including the release of two new profiles, as well as an outline of new initiatives for 2015, such as the planned release of Profile Q and a new client test tool.
ONVIF, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, hosted its 11th Developers’ Plugfest September 29-October 1 in Dusseldorf, Germany. With record numbers of interoperability implementations and multiple testings of ONVIF conformant video, access control and edge devices, this year’s Developers’ Plugfest was the most fruitful in ONVIF’s history.
ONVIF, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, has announced that it now claims members from six of the seven continents in the world, with the addition of Brazilian security products manufacturer intelbras to its membership ranks.
ONVIF, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, announced that it is launching a proactive education and enforcement campaign designed to ensure that all claims of ONVIF conformance by manufacturers of IP-based physical security products are valid. The education and enforcement initiative aims to further protect the ONVIF brand and more preemptively […]
ONVIF, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, announced the release of ONVIF Profile G, the specification that encompasses on-board video storage, searching, retrieval capabilities and media playback. Profile G was created to further refine the interoperability between live video and video storage. It covers cameras, encoders, and network video recorder (NVR) […]
ONVIF, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, announced today plans for its first-ever exhibit at ISC West, scheduled for April 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. At Booth 23135 in the New Exhibitor Pavilion, ONVIF will display the recently released Profile C, which extends the functionality of the ONVIF global interface specification […]
ONVIF , the US-based global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, announced the final release of Profile C, which covers physical access control. Through Profile C, instalers, specifiers and consultants can achieve interoperability between clients and devices of physical access control systems (PACS) and network-based CCTV. With this release, including the availability of the Profile C Test Tool, manufacturers are now able to introduce Profile C conformant products to the market. With Profile C, according to the standards body, compatibility between access control edge devices and clientsmeans installations simplified and training time diminished because of the reduced need for multiple proprietary monitoring systems to handle devices. Profile C conformant devices within the access system provide door and access point information related to basic door control such as locking and unlocking, when a door has been accessed and other door monitoring tasks. Per Björkdahl, Chairman of ONVIF’s Steering Committee, said: “Extending the ONVIF interface into other areas of physical security emphasizes ONVIF’s recognition that systems designers need a consistent interface to enable seamless integration within their security systems . With the release of Profile C for access control, integrators and specifiers can be confident that products bearing the Profile C mark will work together, ultimately enabling a better physical access control solution or integrated access and video system for their clients.” Profile C can also be combined with ONVIF Profile S for video and audio streaming so that users can group related access and video devices, sharing the same […]
ONVIF, a global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, announced the Release Candidate for Profile G — the specification designed to store, search, retrieve and play back media on devices or clients that support recording capabilities and on-board storage. This new Profile is now available for review on the ONVIF website. As with Profile […]
