ONVIF Releases Application Programmer’s Guide
ONVIF, a standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, announced that it hosted a successful networking event at the IFSEC 2011 trade show in Birmingham, England.
The event drew approximately 80 integrators, end users, consultants and manufacturers who attended to hear about ONVIF’s success in promoting a global standard for the interface of IP security products. ONVIF also released the group’s first Application Programmers Guide at IFSEC, a document designed to aid programmers in integrating ONVIF conformant devices into specific applications.
Designed as a companion piece to the ONVIF Core Specification and Test Specifications documents, the comprehensive Application Programmer’s Guide covers the different services included in the ONVIF specification, including discovery, setup and administration, streaming, storage and many others, and offers sample code for programmers to incorporate into their applications.
The guide is available in the White Papers section of http://www.onvif.org.
ONVIF’s networking receptions and public interoperability demonstrations at major security industry events around the world continue to attract significant numbers of industry participants who are attending an ONVIF event for the first time or who have no affiliation with ONVIF.
Along with ONVIF’s membership of more than 300 companies and 800 different conformant products available to the market, these numbers signify a continued momentum in industry interest and adoption of the ONVIF specification.
“The industry is increasingly looking to ONVIF as the driving force for standardization in IP security products,” said Jonas Andersson, Axis Communications and Chairman of ONVIF’s Steering Committee. “With the pending release of our specification for physical access control, one more major technology segment of the industry will be able to benefit from a global standard, increasing product choice and opening the markets to innovative new companies.”
The expansion of the scope to include physical access control systems is slated for release in 2011.
