ONVIF celebrates 10th anniversary of the profile concept

March 17, 2022 by ONVIF

ONVIF is celebrating 10 years of ONVIF profiles based on the profile concept. From our first profile, Profile S, introduced in 2012, to the more recent Profile M introduced in 2021, the profile concept has enabled product conformance and widespread interoperability between physical security products for the last decade. ONVIF is excited to be showcasing this concept – and our profiles – next week at the ISC West event in Las Vegas (booth L0). We’ll be attending together with many of our member companies, who will be displaying their ONVIF profile conformant products at various booths throughout the show floor.

What is a profile?
ONVIF profiles are comprehensive sets of related features that enable systems integrators, end users and consultants to more easily identify interoperable products that fit a specific need, such as basic video streaming with Profile S, access control system configuration with Profile A, or metadata and events for analytic applications with Profile M. Once introduced, profiles remain unchanged throughout their lifetime to preserve interoperability between products that conform to the same profile.

Since the introduction of Profile S, which remains our most widely adopted profile to date, ONVIF has introduced several other profiles that include video and audio streaming, recording and storage, access control and video integration, access control peripherals and metadata handling.

If you are attending ISC West next week, come visit us at Booth L0 – located in the lobby area just outside the show floor. Rest, recharge – and learn more about our profiles!
