The forum, which will comprise a panel discussion and networking event, will be held on April 11. According to organizers, it will be an “open dialogue about the implementation of interoperability standards.”

Panelists will include Per Björkdahl, chairman of ONVIF’s steering committee; Steve Surfaro, security industry liaison at Axis Communications and representative for the Security Industry Association (SIA); Jeff Slotnick, CPP, PSP, president of security consulting firm Setracon, and vice-chair of the ASIS International Physical Security Council; and Matt Powers, technical director, security solutions for Anixter and a member of the ONVIF technical services committee.

“ONVIF’s rate of adoption over the past five years has been dramatic and we recognize the importance for opportunities for open dialogue with the industry,” Björkdahl said in a statement. “Accommodating the needs of the market is very critical to the success of this type of global, industry-wide initiative.”

Following the panel, ONVIF will demonstrate Profile G for recording and storage functionalities and Profile S for video and audio streaming, PTZ and relay output control as well as video encoder configuration and multicast. Profile C, which encompasses access control and video integration, will be released early next year.


ONVIF will also present a display featuring its accomplishments in its four-plus year history (it was formed in Oct. 2008) — from its founding partners to its current status as a consortium representing more than 430 member companies and approximately 2,700 products that conform to its specifications.
The event will be held from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. in Venetian Ballroom J of the Venetian/Palazzo Congress Center & Sands Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nev. Registration information is available here.
