ONVIF, the US-based standardising body for IP-based physical security products, hosted its 21st Developers’ Plugfest in Rome. Some 30 developers and engineers from 18 ONVIF member companies gathered for a multi-day event, which featured 164 hours of testing. Attendees tested their implementations of ONVIF profiles with other ONVIF profile-conformant products. Developers could also test products for profile conformance, as well as assess inter-operability between their devices and those from other manufacturers.
Per Björkdahl, chair of the ONVIF Steering Committee, pictured, said: “The collaboration and exchange of ideas necessary for interoperability does not happen in a vacuum and as such, these events provide valuable face to face time for our members. We are grateful for the continued support from our member companies and developers to help us continue to maintain profiles.”
Profiles tested at this event included Profile S for basic video streaming, Profile T for advanced video streaming, Profile G for edge storage and retrieval and Profile Q for quick installation. Additionally, developers were able to perform testing of the Media2 service methods for media configuration and streaming and conformance testing for discovery.
ONVIF Developers’ Plugfests are held twice a year, allowing the global membership of ONVIF to gather and test. The next ONVIF Developers’ Plugfest is scheduled for May 13 to 15, 2020, location to be announced.
Founded in 2008, the industry forum has members of camera, video management system and access control companies and more than 13,000 profile conformant products. ONVIF offers Profile S for streaming video; Profile G for recording and storage; Profile C for physical access control; Profile Q for out-of-the-box functionality; Profile A for broader access control configuration and Profile T for streaming.
