New working group for ONVIF standard
A new working group charged with developing real-world use cases in response to current market demand has been announced for the ONVIF standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products. These use cases from the ONVIF Use Case Working Group (WG) will be used as input for ONVIF specifications, the development of future profiles and to assist updating and maintaining ONVIF’s technical roadmap.
“The Use Case WG will act as an additional ‘ear to the industry’, and help ONVIF to gather input on what is currently happening in the market,” said Per Björkdahl, ONVIF steering committee chair. “At the same time, the new group offers another avenue for members to participate in the development of specifications and profiles. This can only benefit ONVIF and the integrity of our specifications.”
The Use Case WG collaborates primarily with ONVIF members but can also interact with system integrators, system designers, ONVIF ecosystem stakeholders and others through meetings, workshops, tradeshows and conferences to gather feedback regarding current profiles, future specifications and future profile development. Participation in the working group is open to all ONVIF members at the full and contributing membership level or by invitation from the Use Case WG.
The use cases provided by this group to the ONVIF technical committee are based on the working group’s communications with stakeholders and are used as input for future versions of ONVIF’s technical specifications and new profiles.
ONVIF was established in 2008 to develop a global open standard for IP-based physical security products. ONVIF now consists of nearly 500 member companies in six continents and more than 5,500 profile-conformant products.
