As a contributing member and strong supporter of ONVIF, TKH Security Solutions has successfully implemented ONVIF Profile S in its Siqura IP cameras and video encoders, thereby simplifying their effective incorporation into third-party systems. Profile S comprises all the streaming requirements across each ONVIF version point and is the first in a series of profiles that enable users to more easily determine the compatibility of ONVIF-compliant equipment.
Seamless integration guaranteed
By ensuring its Siqura solutions conform to ONVIF Profile S, TKH Security Solutions guarantees that its Siqura IP devices integrate seamlessly with third-party products that comply with the ONVIF Profile S specification. Siqura cameras and codecs now support video streaming, PTZ control, audio streaming, NTP, and relay outputs according to the ONVIF standard. This offers customers the ability to select the products that best suit their specific project requirements.
Stricter requirements for ONVIF compliancy
The ONVIF standard has a number of different versions that contain various features. Since the features required to integrate a system for a particular purpose are not necessarily part of the same version, ONVIF reorganized its version specifications into profiles, each of which covers a specific task; for example, Profile S contains streaming requirements while Profile G and Profile C cover the storage and access control features, respectively. The ONVIF test tool has also been adjusted to more accurately certify products that are compliant with a certain profile.
Profile S sets strict guidelines for the common components that are shared by ONVIF-compliant devices (e.g., cameras and codecs) and client programs (e.g., management software). It defines how these products must send, configure, request, or control media streaming over an IP network. Ultimately, this facilitates the efforts of manufacturers, systems integrators, and users to more effectively streamline and implement integrated systems based on open standards.
