The Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF
) is a global and open industry forum which its goal is to facilitate the development and use of a global open standard for the interface of physical IP-based security products. RedLeaf is an official member
The global standards for analog video are long established and deliver full interconnectivity and interoperability between manufacturer’s products. IP cameras and network video solutions did not however benefit from a global interoperability standard. As a result the exciting potential for the migration from traditional analogue systems to IP network video solutions was restricted.
The proliferation of IP network video solutions presents a unique set of challenges for both end users and system integrators alike. At a systems integration level the wide range of product on offer can often be limited in its application by the differing standards for image compression and network video transmission found from manufacturer to manufacturer.
This lack of a unified standard defines an obvious limiting factor in the global deployment of fully integrated network video solutions. As a result we restrict customer choice and are unable to fully realize the clear benefits on offer from the wide spread use of this technology.
Established in 2008, ONVIF is a worldwide industry forum encompassing manufacturers, developers, consultants, systems integrators, and end users and is open to any group interested in furthering the goals of the organization.ONVIF is committed to promoting the adoption of network video solutions within the global security market. Focusing on system interoperability, the development of a Worldwide open standard is the forums primary mission.
Using ONVIF enabled RedLeaf products unlocks freedom of customer choice and delivers the exciting opportunities available from integrating RedLeaf Inc.’s truly flexible and scalable network video solutions.
