ONVIF Releases Profile Q to Improve Ease of Installation, Advanced Security

Profile Q has been in release candidate status in order to provide industry review and feedback prior to the final release.

SAN RAMON, Calif. – ONVIF, the global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, has released Profile Q, a specification the organization says “features quick and easy discovery, set-up and configuration of conformant devices as well as advanced security features.”

Profile Q offers out-of-the-box functionality for systems integrators and end users with an easy set-up mechanism and basic device level configuration, streamlining the setup and connection of systems and devices, according to a press release. Profile Q also supports Transport Layer Security (TLS), a secure communication protocol that allows ONVIF devices to communicate with clients across a network that is intended to protect against tampering and eavesdropping.

Profile Q has been in release candidate status in order to provide industry review and feedback prior to the final release.

“With the final release of Profile Q, integrators and end users can expect out of the box interoperability between ONVIF conformant cameras and video management systems quickly and easily,” says Steven Dillingham, chairman of ONVIF’s Profile Q Working Group. “Our development of this Profile is an indication of ONVIF’s response to the market’s request for a more streamlined setup and deployment process using ONVIF.”
