Guide for Members

The following is a guide to help you explore the many opportunities and privileges with your ONVIF membership


ONVIF Conformant Products
Conformance to ONVIF specifications is with self-declaration by the ONVIF member for their manufactured/branded products. Here is a flowchart of the process. More information about the conformance process is available in the ONVIF Conformance Process Specification. The ONVIF device and client test tools are downloadable from the ONVIF Member Portal.


ONVIF Member Portal
The ONVIF Member Portal is a password-protected portal that allows you to:

  1. See your company’s membership profile.
  2. See the contacts in your company with access to the company pages on the portal. If you are the primary, secondary or technical contact with ONVIF, you can provide others in your organization with access to the portal.
  3. Access device/client test tools.
  4. For Full/Contributing/Registered Affiliate/User members only: Place to submit conformant product documentation and upload/access images for interface guides.
  5. Access the document repository that includes ONVIF logo files, Word and PowerPoint ONVIF templates, marketing materials including presentations and videos, and guideline and policy documents.

If you have issues with accessing the Member Portal, please contact the ONVIF Helpdesk.


Using the ONVIF Brand
If you are an ONVIF member or your products conform to ONVIF profiles, we encourage you to communicate this by using the ONVIF logo and profile symbols. While doing so, it’s important that members review and follow the ONVIF brand standards to ensure proper usage of ONVIF logos and trademarks and to monitor the industry for correct usage. The logos are available on the ONVIF Member Portal.


Participate in ONVIF
ONVIF has four committees and a variety of working groups. We encourage representatives of all Full/Contributing/Registered Affiliate members to get involved in committee work (annual election process) and the working groups to maximize the membership and help develop standards that matter. By diving into the ONVIF specifications, you can make it easier for your company to integrate with other companies’ products by ensuring the ONVIF specifications are well designed and comprehensively cover the use cases that are important to your company. Joining ONVIF also gives you the chance to enlarge your professional network and travel. You will work in a culturally diverse group, with professionals from around the world. As a contributor, joining an ONVIF working group should be seen as part of your existing work and may require up to 10% of an average full-time position. Contact the ONVIF Helpdesk if you are interested in participating.
