ONVIF reaches milestone of 20 000 conformant products

Issue 2 2021 News

ONVIF has announced that more than 20 000 security products are now conformant to its various profiles. This new milestone underscores the strong market demand for interoperability of hardware and software offerings and the relevance of ONVIF as a leading driver of open standards within physical security.

“The mission of ONVIF is simple – to provide and promote open interfaces that in turn will increase freedom of choice for end users,” said Leonid Levit, chairman of the ONVIF Steering Committee. “Achieving this milestone means there is no question that the market regards interoperability, through ONVIF conformance, to be a fundamental requirement in our industry.”

Much of the growth relating to the number of conformant products has happened within the past few years, as ONVIF surpassed 10 000 conformant products in 2018. This indicates a clear commitment from ONVIF members and the industry at large to building IP-based products and systems that enable users to build, change and grow their system free of proprietary constraints.

Forthcoming ONVIF profiles – specifically the Profile M Release Candidate for metadata, which is to be finalised later this year – are expected to drive further growth in the number of conformant products to meet interoperability needs in new operational environments, such as in the cloud and with systems running advanced analytics powered by artificial intelligence.

ONVIF conformant products are produced only by ONVIF member companies and must support at least one ONVIF profile. Products must be registered under the ONVIF list of conformant products to be considered conformant. The Conformant Products page on the ONVIF website, onvif.org, is the only authoritative list of ONVIF conformant products.

ONVIF offers Profile S for streaming video, Profile G for recording and storage, Profile C for physical access control, Profile Q for improved out-of-the-box functionality, Profile A for broader access control configuration and Profile T for advanced streaming.
