Open Network Video Interface Forum launched
November 2008, News

In May 2008, Axis Communications, Bosch Security Systems and Sony Corporation announced their cooperation to create a global open forum for the development of a standard network interface for network video products. The forum is now known as ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum).

By creating an independent, non-profit organisation the three founding members ensure the openness needed to develop an open industry standard. Interested parties may register to participate via the website at www.onvif.org. The site provides information about the benefits of a global standard and answers frequently asked questions.

ONVIF is committed to accelerating the adoption of network video in the security market through a global open interface standard. The standard will define a common protocol for the exchange of information (such as device discovery, live video, audio, metadata and control information) between network video devices.

The ONVIF interface will provide interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer. It will become even easier for end users, integrators, consultants and manufacturers to take advantage of the possibilities offered by network video, resulting in more cost-effective and flexible solutions, expanded market opportunities and reduced risk.
