IP Surveillance plug compatibility test takes place at plugfest event

ONVIF : 10 April, 2013  (Company News)
The Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) has held a plugfest for ONVIF compliant IP video surveillance industry suppliers

ONVIF, a standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, conducted its 8th Developers’ Plugfest in early March at an event that drew 28 ONVIF member companies that have implemented the ONVIF specifications in their IP-based physical security products.

The gathering, which took place at the Move Hotel in Mogliano Veneto, Italy, featured 60 engineers who gathered to test the interoperability of their latest Profile S implementations for video surveillance. The event also was an opportunity for members to examine interoperability among products designated as Profile G for recording features and Profile C, which applies to access control features. In all, more than 430 hours of product assessment took place during the three-day event.

“From a practical standpoint, there’s no better way to verify products’ interoperability using
ONVIF specifications than when manufacturers from around the world gather for this bi-annual event,” said Canon’s Takahiro Iwasaki, Chairman of ONVIF’s Technical Services Committee Taskforce, Developers‘ Plugfest. “As ONVIF prepares to roll out Profiles G and C, and continues its work on Profile S, this timely technical gathering helps ensure that devices will be ready.”

For the first time, the plugfest also facilitated User Scenario Testing, which allowed a client — connected with multiple devices such as a video management system,
NVR and/or IP camera — to verify its ONVIF interoperability based on end-user scenarios. In addition, there was the traditional peer-to-peer testing to verify device interoperability among others supporting the same Profile.

The next
ONVIF Developers’ Plugfest is scheduled to take place in North America in September.
