Basler cameras to be ONVIF compliant

German-based video surveillance camera maker Basler announced this week that all the cameras its ships moving forward will be ONVIF compliant.

In statement, the company said that it has focused its efforts on conforming to the ONVIF specification since it joined the standards organization and that it has been working to create a standard for IP communication within video surveillance and other physical security technology areas since 2008.

In addition, Basler said that all of its IP cameras already in the field with “BIP2” included in their model name can also be upgraded to become ONVIF compliant with a firmware update.

"Our cameras are part of a complete solution with network video recorders, software, and additional network infrastructure," said Björn Weber, product manager at Basler. "Throughout our product development and design cycles, we focus strongly on the compatibility of our products with our technology partners’ products. ONVIF compliance is a great step to further facilitating this process."
