25 companies slated to present at ONVIF interoperability event

IP video standards group ONVIF (the Open Network Video Interface Forum) announced this week that 25 of its member organizations are scheduled to demonstrate interoperable products during the group’s second interoperability event at ISC West this month in Las Vegas.

ONVIF, which was founded by video companies Axis, Bosch and Sony in 2008, held its first interoperability event at ASIS International last year in Anaheim, Calif. The event will allow attendees the opportunity to observe the latest developments within ONVIF and see what's in store for the future of network video standards.

"This is a great step towards global interoperability," said Sony’s Andreas Schneider, who serves as chairman of ONVIF’s technical services committee. "We are excited to see a mix of video surveillance product manufacturers and video management software providers among the participating companies. Visitors will get a clear understanding of what a global standard will mean for the market, and how it will be possible to use products from different vendors in the same surveillance system without any costly integration work."

ONVIF already has more than 140 members and more than 70 standards compliant products available on the market.
