ONVIF hosted its 17th ONVIF Developers’ Plugfest in early November in Seoul, South Korea. It was the group’s second largest plugfest and the largest in the past five years, the organization says.
With multiple testings of ONVIF conformant products, the Developers’ Plugfest included interoperability testing for all six ONVIF profiles, including prototypes of the Release Candidate of Profile T for advanced streaming.
Engineers and developers from 23 ONVIF member companies gathered at the event to test their implementations of ONVIF Profiles with other ONVIF Profile-conformant products, with 20 members testing their prototypes of the Release Candidate for Profile T.
In addition to Profile T operability tests, all ONVIF clients had one hour of testing using the ONVIF Device/Client Test Tool and could discuss any issues that arose during conformance testing with Test Tool developers.
“The high level of participation in this ONVIF Developers’ Plugfest highlights the continued implementation of our Profiles, and the growing prevalence and necessity of interoperability between IP based security products,” said Steven Dillingham, chairman of the Technical Services Committee Taskforce of ONVIF, Developers’ Plugfest. “The ability to test ONVIF profile implementations at these events is an important step in developing new conformant technologies and prepping them for entrance into the marketplace.”
ONVIF Developer’s Plugfests are held twice each year to around the world. The next Developers’ Plugfest is scheduled for June 2018 in Malmo, Sweden.
