ONVIF Holds 2012 Annual Membership Meeting

At the 2012 Annual Membership Meeting, ONVIF emphasized profiles for streaming, access control and video storage.

ONVIF, a leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, held its annual gathering of members in late November. Featuring the election of a slate of new officers and committee chairmen, the meetings set the stage for continued progress toward interoperability of IP security devices in 2013.

ONVIF’s annual meeting, held in Florida, brought together representatives from many of ONVIF’s nearly 430 member companies, representing nearly every region of the world. Keynote speaker Farzin Aghdasi, PhD, director of Pelco by Scheider Electric, stressed the importance of striking a delicate balance between standardization and innovation to continue to advance technology integrations and drive growth.

The four-day event also played host to meetings of the ONVIF Technical, Technical Services, Communication and Steering committees. ONVIF committee chairmen also provided technical and organizational briefings, as well as updates on the forum’s milestones and roadmap for 2013, including the releases of ONVIF Profile G for video storage and Profile C for access control. Profile S, which encompasses video streaming, was released in early 2012.

“With our focus on Profiles for video streaming, video storage and access control, ONVIF remains dedicated to streamlining and simplifying the implementation of our specification,” said Per Björkdahl of Axis Communications, who was elected Chairman of the Steering Committee. “Along with ONVIF’s growing membership numbers, these profile introductions are visible signs that ONVIF is maintaining momentum in its mission of achieving widespread interoperability in the market.”

The 2013 ONVIF annual meeting is scheduled for November in conjunction with the CPSE show in Shenzhen, China to ensure that ONVIF’s global members have the opportunity to attend and participate in the forum’s annual meetings.
