The ONVIF Device Test Tool is used by the members of ONVIF to test conformance of IP-based physical security products with the ONVIF Test Specification. The RFQ will include the release of an updated version of the ONVIF Device Test Tool and ONVIF Test Specification for Profile S, which encompasses the common functionalities shared by ONVIF conformant video management systems and devices such as IP cameras or encoders that send, configure, request or control the streaming of media data over an IP network.
Also included in the RFQ is continued development for conformance of Profile G, which oversees storage, searching, retrieval and playback of media on devices or clients that support recording capabilities and on-board storage. The project will also include Profile C, which encompasses physical access control and video surveillance integration conformance. The RFQ will also involve the release and implementation of a test specification for the ONVIF Advanced Security Specification.
Quotations need to be submitted by 19th July 2013. The full RFQ can be found at www.onvif.org/NewsEvents/PressReleases. Vendors interested in being notified of future RFQs can register their interest and qualifications by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
