ONVIF, the global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products, has surpassed 10,000 conformant products that meet its global interoperability standards, further broadening the organisation’s offer and relevance in the IP-based physical security marketplace.
This level of conformant products marks yet another milestone for ONVIF as it celebrates its tenth year as a standards organisation, providing interoperability specifications for IP-based physical security products. The Profiles offered by ONVIF address video surveillance and access control functions and are increasingly applicable in security and connectivity environments such as Safe City initiatives, Internet of Things applications and intelligent building automation.
“With more than 10,000 conformant products in its tenth year, the acceptance for ONVIF in the market has grown in a way that no-one could have anticipated,” explained Per Björkdahl, chair of the ONVIF Steering Committee. “This number represents not only the success of ONVIF, but how our member companies, many of whom are competitors, have collaborated to provide solutions that are relevant and needed in the market. This is a strong testament of the importance of standards in our rapidly evolving marketplace.”
In the past two years, ONVIF has continued to see a strong commitment from its member base representing a majority of the manufacturers in the industry, along with a dramatic increase in new conformant products. The numbers reflect the increasing demand for open source standards in the market. ONVIF will continue to provide the framework for further conformant products that enable interoperability.
ONVIF-conformant products are produced only by ONVIF member companies and must support at least one ONVIF Profile. Products must be registered under the ONVIF list of conformant products to be considered conformant.
The Conformant Products page on the ONVIF website, onvif.org, is the only authoritative list of ONVIF-conformant products.
ONVIF has a global member base of established camera, video management system and access control solution companies. With Profile S for streaming video, Profile G for recording and storage, Profile C for physical access control, Profile Q for improved out-of-the-box functionality, Profile A for broader access control configuration and the Profile T Release Candidate for advanced streaming, ONVIF continues to work with its members to expand the number of IP interoperability solutions ONVIF-conformant products can provide.
