ONVIF Debuts Profile C for Access Control and Demonstrates Profile S at First-Ever ISC West Booth

ONVIF, a standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, announced plans for its first-ever exhibit at ISC West, scheduled for April 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

At Booth #23135 in the New Exhibitor Pavilion, ONVIF will display the recently released Profile C, which extends the functionality of the ONVIF global interface specification into the physical access control arena, and enables interoperability between clients and devices of physical access control systems (PACS) and network-based video systems.

“As the industry has evolved over the last five years, ONVIF acceptance has grown, signaling the industry’s need for a common interface for effective interoperability within different components of a security system,” said Chairman of ONVIF’s Steering Committee, Per Björkdahl. “With the support of our member community we have experienced an impressive growth in profile conformant products and most recently, ONVIF expansion into physical access control. And additional profiles are in development – we are excited for what is to come.”

Among the companies demonstrating Profile C interoperability within their access control products at the ONVIF booth will be Axis Communications, Bosch Security Systems, Honeywell and Siemens. Within an access control system, Profile C provides door and access point information and functionality related to basic door control activities such as locking and unlocking doors, when a door has been accessed and other door monitoring tasks.

ONVIF will also showcase Profile S for video and audio streaming, its first and most widely adopted profile, which will be demonstrated by Avigilon, Axis, Bosch, DRS Technologies, Fike, Hikvision, Honeywell, ISS, Panasonic, Pelco by Schneider Electric, Sony and Videotec. As part of the Profile S awareness campaign, ONVIF has placed floor decals at the booths of the 60 member companies displaying Profile S conformant products at ISC West – and tied this into a promotion for attendees to win an iPad Mini.

Founded in 2008, ONVIF now consists of nearly 500 member companies and more than 2,700 Profile S conformant products. This strong market acceptance has fueled the development of a bold new ONVIF brand identity which will be launched at ISC West.
