ONVIF Releases Profile Q

September 2016 News, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

ONVIF has released Profile Q, the specification that features quick and easy discovery, set-up and configuration of conformant devices as well as advanced security features.

ONVIF is a global and open industry forum that is committed to standardising communication between IP-based physical security products to ensure their interoperability and to facilitate their integration. ONVIF was established in 2008 to develop a global open standard for IP-based physical security products.

Profile Q offers out-of-the-box functionality for systems integrators and end users with an easy set-up mechanism and basic device level configuration, streamlining the setup and connection of systems and devices. Profile Q also supports Transport Layer Security (TLS), a secure communication protocol that allows ONVIF devices themselves to communicate with clients across a network in a way that protects against tampering and eavesdropping. Profile Q has been in release candidate status in order to provide industry review and feedback prior to the final release.

“With the final release of Profile Q, integrators and end users can expect out of the box interoperability between ONVIF conformant cameras and video management systems quickly and easily,” said Steven Dillingham, chairman of ONVIF’s Profile Q Working Group. “Our development of this Profile is an indication of ONVIF’s response to the market’s request for a more streamlined setup and deployment process using ONVIF.”

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