|ONVIF membership allows VIVOTEK to influence the development of global open standards for network video products
VIVOTEK is pleased to announce that it has officially been inaugurated as a full member of ONVIF, which is an open industry forum committed to promoting and developing global standards for the interfacing of IP-based security products. Compared to a user member, VIVOTEK is able to be involved in and positively influence the development of global open standards for the interface of network video products.
Established in 2008, ONVIF is dedicated to standardisation of communication and interoperability between network-enabled security devices. Currently, there are 468 members of ONVIF, including 21 full members, 20 contributing members and 427 user members. With the adoption of an open standard, IP-based security products from different member companies are able to be compatible and interoperable with each other, making integration of the products into a single solution and system expansion easy and friendly.
Steve Ma, Executive VP at VIVOTEK, stated, “VIVOTEK, in the past decade, has committed to providing global partners and customers with industry leading and high quality products and solutions for meeting diversified demands. With the adoption of an open standard like ONVIF, the value, eligibility and reliability of VIVOTEK’s IP-based surveillance products are further enhanced, driving future business growth. Bearing in mind the importance and power of a common and open standard, VIVOTEK applied for a full membership within ONVIF. Via multiple working groups and meetings for standards establishment with other full ONVIF members, VIVOTEK believes that it will be able to cast greater influence over standards establishment, creating a better industry and safer world together.”
