ONVIF, the global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, has surpassed 25,000 conformant products and celebrated 15 years as the defacto industry standard for interoperability.
The initiative says that since its inception in 2008, the products that conform to its profiles have consistently grown in number and scope, beginning with core products such as IP cameras, video management software and network video recording solutions.
Its database of conformant products now encompasses intercoms, license plate recognition cameras and can also include drones and services such as video surveillance as a service (VSaaS), a reflection of both the growing value of video and the advantages of using cloud solutions.
“ONVIF has accomplished quite a lot in its first 15 years, but our work is certainly not done yet,” said Leo Levit, Chairman, ONVIF Steering Committee. “As the industry continues to adopt video analytics, AI, cloud and IoT, the role of ONVIF as a provider of standardized interfaces in these domains will only become more relevant.”
