2018 holds special significance for ONVIF as it marks our 10th year as an organization striving for interoperability within the physical security industry. We’re proud to have accomplished so much in those 10 years, from that “notes on the napkin” moment, where ONVIF founders sketched out the framework for fulfilling the industry’s need for interoperability standards to developing six unique profiles that address our market’s main areas of demand.
But our work doesn’t stop there. Through the years we’ve partnered with other standards initiatives, such as SIA, to provide cooperative approaches to the industry at large in an effort to better fit industry needs. We are always striving to clarify, educate and promote interoperability, because at ONVIF we believe that every security system should have a common interface.
For 2018, education and engagement is key to our strategy, and to that end, we’d like to extend a warm welcome to our ONVIF Blog. It is here where’ll you’ll find information on all the latest happenings from ONVIF, perspectives from ONVIF on hot topics from the industry and the voice of our member companies on issues facing our market or others that have influence on the technology that we use, design, install, or develop.
We’d be pleased if you’d leave your comments on our posts to let us know if the topic struck a chord, presented a new perspective or an idea that you completely disagree with!
