Issue 1 2021 Surveillance

ONVIF, the global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products, has announced the appointment of Leonid Levit as the new chairman of the ONVIF Steering Committee.


Leonid Levit

Levit serves as director of system integration at Axis Communications and brings to the chairman’s role a strong technical background and more than a decade of product management, marketing and sales experience. Levit takes over from Per Björkdahl, who is stepping down from the role of chairman after nine years.

“For the past decade, ONVIF has worked to facilitate nearly universal interoperability of IP physical security devices and clients, enabling end users and systems integrators to have freedom of choice in their selection of video surveillance and access control products,” Levit said. “I look forward to being part of the next evolution of ONVIF as it continues to support our evolving industry and the deepening relationships between analytics, IoT, AI and other technologies.”

Prior to his role as director of system integration, Levit was global product manager of analytics solutions at Axis. His past experience includes roles at Sony Mobile Communications and Ericsson Mobile Platforms.

Further information about ONVIF conformant products, including member companies and their conformant models, is available on the ONVIF website: www.onvif.org
