IP interoperability at IFSEC

July 2012 Conferences & Events

ONVIF, the leading global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products held a roundtable panel discussion at the recent IFSEC International trade show that examined interoperability issues for IP-based physical security devices as part of its security industry education efforts.

Led by Editor Mark Rowe of Professional Security magazine, the panel discussed the market’s perception of the effectiveness of interoperability initiatives for IP security devices and how ONVIF’s interoperability specification has made great strides in the market. Since its introduction four years ago, ONVIF now has more than 1900 conformant products and nearly 400 member companies. Panelists also discussed how end users are driving demand for more open systems from manufacturers, which is compelling integrators and consultants to become educated on interoperability initiatives to offer non-proprietary solutions to their customers.

The panelists included Jonas Andersson, chairman, ONVIF Steering Committee; Gary Wong, senior research analyst, Video Surveillance & Security Services, IMS Research and Ross Dorman, managing director for Chordell Solutions, an Oxford, UK-based systems integration consultancy.

In addition to the panel discussion, Andersson presented an educational update about ONVIF’s work as part of IFSEC’s Next Generation CCTV Theater, furthering the group’s efforts to raise the profile of interoperability specifications through events at major security conferences around the globe.

To extend education outside the confines of the trade show and event environments, ONVIF will also launch an online webinar training course that offers a basic overview of the current security industry standards landscape, and additional details about the mission and objectives of ONVIF and the core specification and the conformance process. The online training can be accessed at http://www.tavcom.com/our-courses/distance-learning.html.

Further information about ONVIF conformant products, including the vendors and the conformant models, is available on ONVIF’s website: www.onvif.org
