ONVIF Releases Enhanced Member Tools for New Product Conformance Testing and Technical Support

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2011) -

  • New testing tool assists manufacturers with declaring ONVIF conformance of products
  • ONVIF member forum provides enhanced technical support, discussion opportunities
  • More than 1,100 conformant products available on the market

ONVIF, the leading standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, announced today that it has released a new set of tools designed to aid member companies in designing and releasing new, innovative ONVIF conformant products to the physical security market.

The updated Test Tool (v1.02.4) and the accompanying Test Specification represents the continuing work of ONVIF's Technical Services Committee to enhance and refine the ONVIF specification and the testing parameters by which products are declared to conform to the ONVIF specification. With this latest release, testing specifications are now divided into multiple documents, including: Base test, for IP configuration, device discovery and event handling; Media test, addressing media profiles and configurations as well as real-time viewing and streaming functionality; and PTZ test, defining the test procedures for handling PTZ nodes and configurations. As of November 1, this version of the test tool and test specification will be used by ONVIF member companies to declare ONVIF conformance.

Member companies with questions or feedback about the new test tools or other ONVIF technical items can now address those questions in the ONVIF Developer's Forum, an online discussion space where members can discuss items related to ONVIF-implementation.

"The updates to our testing documents and member communication vehicles reflect the evolution of ONVIF and the value we place on member feedback to continually refine the specification and our related technical documents," said Jonas Andersson, Chairman of ONVIF's Steering Committee. "These changes also underscore our commitment to ensuring that products bearing the ONVIF logo are truly in compliance with our specification, which is being so rapidly adopted around the globe to improve interoperability between IP-based products."

As of September 2011, ONVIF membership had grown to nearly 340 companies with more than 1,100 conformant products available in the market. ONVIF membership is open to manufacturers, software developers, consultants, system integrators, end-users and other interest groups that wish to participate in the activities of ONVIF.
