Why did you join ONVIF and how long has your company been a member of ONVIF?
We joined the ONVIF organization in 2009 as we wanted to embrace interoperability as a key company growth strategy. We quickly saw and experienced the benefits of membership and participation of standards development. An open standard for the physical security industry has many benefits for security end users, and it helps manufacturers to build a partnership ecostructure, as well.
Is your company involved in any particular working groups?
The Pelco team is thrilled to be an active part of several committees, including the Steering Committee, Technical Committee, Technical Services Committee, and Communications Committee. We are also involved in the Profile Technical Services Committee Working Group to develop the profiles, test specification, test tool and conformance process.
What does it mean to you to be member of ONVIF and what kinds of benefits have you seen as a result?
Pelco has been a supporter and member of ONVIF and its mission and activities for more than nine years. With the support of Pelco and other industry manufacturers, ONVIF has driven the development and implementation of several profiles that are making it possible for disparate security systems to work more harmoniously with one another. This allows industry manufacturers such as Pelco to pave the way and to get ahead of the technology curve, which ultimately enables the future of the security industry to be agnostic and greatly influences future communication technologies.
Are there any specific benefits it brings to your business?
Pelco’s leadership and involvement with ONVIF and its industry partners has led to the design and production of many ONVIF compliant security products and solutions that benefit security end users in several ways, including greater product choice and integration, and overall interoperability into their risk mitigation strategies. Security end users are increasingly looking towards ONVIF-compliant security solutions, such as those offered by Pelco, to secure their enterprises.
