Avigilon Joins Interoperability Group ONVIF

VANCOUVER, Canada – Avigilon has joined the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF), which enables the integration of ONVIF standards-compliant IP cameras with the company’s Control Center high definition surveillance software.

The ONVIF specification defines a common protocol for the exchange of information between network video devices including automatic device discovery, video streaming, and intelligence metadata.

“Developing IP camera standards is important to the continued expansion of the IP video surveillance market and is also an important part of ensuring our customer’s ability to implement comprehensive security solutions,” says Dave Tynan, vice-president of global sales at Avigilon. “We are committed to joining standards organizations such as ONVIF to ensure that our HD and megapixel video surveillance system continues to lead the industry with support for a broad list of leading IP surveillance cameras.”

Avigilon Control Center is HD network video management software with high definition stream management (HDSM) that delivers full situational awareness and detail, leading to faster response times, reduced investigation times and superior overall protection, according to the company.

Avigilon Control Center is a secure and reliable open enterprise class network video management platform for capturing, managing, and storing high definition surveillance video while efficiently managing bandwidth and storage. Providing the industry with a complete HD and megapixel surveillance system, Avigilon offers the industry’s greatest choice in HD cameras from one to 16 megapixels.

Axis Communications, Bosch Security Systems and Sony Corp. established ONVIF in 2008 as an open industry forum to adopt network video in the security market. The group’s stated mission is to help develop a global open standard for the interface of network video products. ONVIF membership is open to manufacturers, software developers, consultants, system integrators, end users and other interest groups.
