Synergy 3 Achieves ONVIF Compliance for IP Interoperability
Synergy 3, the latest evolution of Synectics’ field-proven command and control technology, is now conformant with the ONVIF Profile S. This allows compatibility with third party ONVIF Profile S conformant IP devices, such as cameras and encoders, and reflects Synectics’ ongoing commitment to open architecture.
ONVIF is committed to the adoption of IP in the security market. The ONVIF specification will ensure interoperability between products regardless of manufacturer. Profile S looks specifically at the common functionalities of IP video systems.
Launched in 2014, Synergy 3 is a flexible, open command and control platform that enables alarms and events, security and process control sub-systems, video, and data to be monitored, managed, and recorded from a single unified interface.
Achieving compliance allows Synergy 3 to configure, request and control the streaming of data over an IP network from ONVIF devices compatible with Profile S. Synectics customers therefore have greater flexibility to select the right IP devices for their specific requirements.
David Aindow, Product and Technology Director at Synectics, said, “Supporting open architecture solutions and common industry standards has always been at the heart of our product development – ONVIF Profile S conformity is therefore very important to us.
“This is particularly true of Synergy 3. Its open architecture means that the scope, type and make of video, alarm and data systems monitored are not fixed, which ultimately gives the end user the opportunity and flexibility to specify a wider range of solutions. It’s how the industry should be.”
Visitors to IFSEC 2015, taking place on 16th-18th June at ExCel London, will be able to see Synergy 3’s compliance in action by visiting Synectics at the ONVIF booth (D530).
Synectics will be demonstrating Synergy 3’s full integration capabilities alongside key product features such as built-in incident collaboration tools, interactive mapping, intuitive workflows and enhanced reporting functionality – all this exploring how Synergy 3 enables end users to achieve heightened levels of situational awareness.
