The Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA) has released conformance tools for its version 1.1 IP Media Device specification. The tools provide makers of IP-enabled security devices the ability to ensure that they have correctly implemented the IP Media Device specification, according to the organization.
“The compliance tool for the IP Media Device rounds out PSIA’s ability to develop open and interoperable standards,” says Peter Jankowski, Chairman, PSIA IP Video Working Group and Chairman and CEO, Next Level Security Systems. “PSIA member companies can now leverage these tools to ensure conformance with the specification and quickly bring PSIA-enabled solutions to market.”
Test documents can be downloaded and installed from the PSIA Web site. An automatic report will be generated at the end of the process, which manufacturers must send to PSIA for review. Additionally, manufacturers are required to complete the self-declaration conformance form to enable their companies to market their products as PSIA-certified. Members that have certified their security solutions with the tool will be listed on PSIA’s Web site.
“The release of the compliance tool is a powerful step forward in the quest for interoperability among IP-enabled devices,” says IQinVision CTO Ian Johnston. “This is the culmination of significant effort and collaboration from dozens of companies that have been active and influential within the PSIA community.”
