ONVIF returns to ISC West 2024 to speak on standards and the cloud

April 5, 2024
Freedom of choice is important in several technology segments that will be major themes of this year’s ISC West event.

SAN RAMON, Calif. –  April 5, 2024 - ONVIF is pleased to return to ISC West 2024, April 9-12 in Las Vegas, at Booth L0 to continue the industry-wide conversation about open standards, interoperability and the freedom of choice that standards provide for end users, systems integrators and consultants.

This freedom of choice is important in several technology segments that will be major themes of this year’s ISC West event, including Artificial Intelligence, video analytics and the industry’s transition to cloud.

This transition is the central theme of a panel discussion, “Defining the Cloud: Are Standards the Answer?” to be held at 10am on Tuesday, April 9 in Venetian 308 at the Venetian Expo as part of the SIA Education at ISC conference program.

ONVIF Chairman Leo Levit will participate in the panel as it explores cloud topics, such as clarifying the definitions of cloud and cloud services, the benefits and drawbacks of cloud adoption and the differences between proprietary and open standards-based approaches to cloud.

Other expert panelists include Joshua Anderson, Director of Surveillance and Technology, Cherokee Nation Entertainment;  Mike Dunn, Strategic Innovation and Business Development, Wachter; Josh Woodhouse, lead analyst and founder of Novaira Insights and Brian Karas, President of Pelican Zero.

“While our industry navigates these significant technological shifts, the platforms for discussion, debate and conversation offered by events such as ISC West are invaluable to all who attend,” said Levit. “As the de facto standards provider of standards for the physical security industry, ONVIF will continue to be deeply engaged in developing specifications and profiles that provide the market with interoperable products that support the transition to these new technologies and approaches.”

At ONVIF booth L0, visitors will get a chance to test their knowledge of ONVIF profiles, membership information and other fun facts about ONVIF in an interactive trivia game, with chances to win an iPad or other prizes. On display at the booth will be information about the various ONVIF profiles and the new TLS Configuration Add-on for secure communication, the first to be released under the add-on concept.

Further information about ONVIF conformant products, including member companies and their conformant models, is available on the ONVIF website: www.onvif.org.
