|Jonas Andersson to discuss the current market perceptions of ONVFI's standard initiative
ONVIF, the leading global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products, will host an open panel discussion and networking event on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at Security Essen 2012 to examine the current state of standardisation initiatives on the security industry. The event is part of ONVIF’s ongoing efforts to provide a forum for open dialogue about the implementation of interoperability standards for security technology.
Standardisation efforts in the security industry have made major strides in the market since their introduction four years ago. To discuss the ongoing benefits and impacts of ONVIF and overall standardisation in the market, Jonas Andersson, Chairman of ONVIF’s Steering Committee, will join a panel of security industry and standards experts to discuss the current market perception of ONVIF’s standards initiative, examine potential influences and impacts of standards on the market and look ahead to the future of IP interoperability standards deployment.
Andersson will be joined by Frank Rottmann, Robert Bosch, and liaison partner and convener, International Electro technical Commission TC 79 ‘CCTV’; René Kiefer, Siemens Building Technologies, and Chairman of the Video Expert Group, ZVEI Industrial Association Security; and Jürgen Alz, Product Management, Security, Bosch Building Security. The session will be moderated by GIT Security / GIT Sicherheit.
The panel discussion will also kick off a broader networking event at Security Essen where ONVIF will host a display of major milestones in its history, having grown from a small group of security manufacturers to an industry consortium representing nearly 400 member companies and more than 2,000 products that conform to its interoperability specification. Milestones on display will include the group’s formation in October 2008, the release of Version 2.0 of the ONVIF Core Specification in late 2010, and the release of Profile S one year later.
Profile S will be the focus of ONVIF’s interoperability demonstration at the Essen networking event, where a series of kiosks will display Profile S at work in video and audio streaming, PTZ and relay output control as well as video encoder configuration and multicast.
The panel will be held from 4 – 5:30 p.m. in CC South, Hall Deutschland of Messe Essen Fairgrounds in Essen, with the interoperability demonstrations and networking event immediately following the discussion. Click here to register for the event.
