ONVIF to host interoperability event at ISC West

IP video standards group ONVIF (the Open Network Video Interface Forum) announced Friday that it will be hosting its second interoperability event at ISC West 2010 next 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.

ONVIF already has more than 140 members and more than 50 standards compliant products available on the market.

"The highlight of the reception is the show plug fest, where member companies will demonstrate interoperable network video products," said Jonas Andersson of Axis Communications, who serves as chairman of ONVIF's steering committee. "The first public plug fest, held at ASIS last year, was a big success with several companies showing interoperable cameras and video management software. We hope to see even more participants and products in Las Vegas."
