Alcatraz Achieves ONVIF Certification for Facial Authentication Solution
ONVIF certification gives partners and end users confidence the Alcatraz solution will work seamlessly with any existing VMS platform.
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — Alcatraz AI announces it has achieved ONVIF certification and will apply the standards to its facial authentication solution, The Rock.
ONVIF is a non-profit organization with the mission to provide and promote standardized interfaces for effective interoperability of IP-based physical security products.
The Rock combines artificial intelligence (AI) and 3D sensing technologies that is said to provide facilities with enterprise-grade identity verification needed to create secure spaces. While most product manufacturers focus on a single market segment, ONVIF certification allows Alcatraz AI to bridge the gap between access control and video management with a single device, according to the announcement.
Obtaining the certification gives partners and end users confidence that the Alcatraz Rock will work seamlessly with any existing video management system (VMS) platform.
The company‘s Rock solution can now function as an ONVIF camera and is certified with Profile S and Profile T to provide IP-based video streaming. The solution has always been equipped with a 2MP camera as a part of its sensor array, which is said to make the inclusion of the ONVIF capabilities simple for existing users.
The video stream can be added to any existing VMS, giving security teams a unique door-level perspective of who is accessing an area without an additional piece of hardware. This brings an additional awareness that most doors and openings never have, according to the announcement.
“Developing products based on open standards such as ONVIF is a core design principle at Alcatraz,” says Blaine Frederick, vice president of product at Alcatraz AI. “Adding ONVIF capabilities to the Rock and having it certified allows us to bring value to customers by ensuring product compatibility and eliminating proprietary vendor lock-in.”
