The ONVIF Protocol

The ONVIF Protocol

Until recently, connecting IP video surveillance equipment of different manufacturers was problematic. Each brand used their own proprietary communication protocol.

An international forum wants to change this situation by defining a standard specification for connecting those equipment. There are multiple advantages of the ONVIF standard, including:

  • Easier connection between the various security equipment by using a unified protocol;
  • Greater flexibility when choosing the system components by reducing compatibility requirements.

Even if the ONVIF specification is quite recent, this standard has all the potential of bringing a lot to the security industry.
