ONVIF Streamlines, Expands Interoperability Work with Open Source Development
SAN RAMON, Calif. – July 15, 2020.
ONVIF®, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based
physical security products, announces it is implementing open source
for its network interface specifications for physical security
technology. The move will streamline administrative and collaborative
processes while also leveraging the collective ingenuity of the global
developer community. ONVIF interoperability specifications are already
publicly available as open standards and are widely used as common
communication interfaces between devices and software clients, such as
IP surveillance cameras, video management software and physical access
control systems from different manufacturers.
The use of GitHub, an online open source development platform, will allow for easier contribution and collaboration on ONVIF specifications by applying state-of-the-art software development tools to specification engineering. This will enable software engineers and developers from security, IoT, Artificial Intelligence, cloud services and other industries to contribute new ideas and proposals, spurring greater feature interoperability and new interface specifications that will help ONVIF continue to contribute to these industries. Other important aspects of ONVIF, such as the development of ONVIF profiles and test tools, the conformant product submission process, the activities of the ONVIF committees and working groups, and the ONVIF membership and governance structure remain unchanged.
Founded in 2008, ONVIF is a leading and
well-recognized industry forum that is committed to driving
interoperability for IP-based physical security products. The
organization has a global member base of established camera, video
management system and access control companies, and more than 18,000
profile conformant products.
