ONVIF Marks Two Decades of Hosting Developers Plugfests
The 20th anniversary milestone emphasizes the continued growth and demand for interoperable physical security solutions, ONVIF says.
SAN RAMON, Calif. – ONVIF, a leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, hosted its 20th Developers’ Plugfest in early June.
The anniversary milestone, held in Tokyo, emphasizes the continued growth and demand for interoperable solutions, according to the organization.
Developers and engineers from 22 member companies gathered at the three-day event to test their implementations of ONVIF Profiles with other ONVIF Profile-conformant products. Developers can test their products independently for profile conformance, as well as test for interoperability between their devices and those from other manufacturers.
With 47 members testing their implementations of the six ONVIF profiles, attendees logged nearly 250 hours of testing. In addition to Profile interoperability tests, all ONVIF clients had the opportunity to test using the ONVIF Device/Client Test Tool.
From there, attendees were able to discuss with Test Tool developers any issues that arose during conformance testing.
“The continued level of engagement from our member companies at what is now our 20th Developers’ Plugfest showcases the importance of interoperability to the industry at large,” says Per Björkdahl, chair of the ONVIF Steering Committee. “As new profiles are developed to meet changing market needs, it is more important than ever for companies to collaborate and exchange ideas to create the best new conformant technologies possible.”
ONVIF Developers’ Plugfests are held twice each year around the world to enable member companies to gather for testing of their implementations. The next Developers’ Plugfest is scheduled to be held Nov. 13-15 in Rome, Italy.
Founded in 2008, the organization has a global member base of established camera, video management system and access control companies and more than 13,000 profile-conformant products.
ONVIF offers Profile S for basic streaming video; Profile G for edge storage and retrieval; Profile C for door control and event management; Profile Q for quick installation, Profile A for access control configuration and Profile T for advanced video streaming.
