 ONVIF is a forum which drives the development of a standard global interface for network video products

ONVIF has recently announced that its member base has grown to 103 companies. The forum, which drives the development of a global standard for the interface of network video products, now boasts 12 full members, 13 contributing members and 78 user member companies. Over the last months, Canon and IDIS have joined as full members and Dallmeier, General Electrics, Genetec, Hitachi, Industrial Technology Research Institute, ITX, Nice, Optelecom-NKF, PMC-Sierra, Sanyo and Webgate are participating as contributing members.

In line with ONVIF's Rules of Membership, the forum held an election for the committee seats at its Annual Meeting in Anaheim, California on September 23.  As a result, Siemens is now a new member of the Steering Committee, Panasonic has been re-elected for both the Steering and the Technical Committee, and Cisco has been re-elected for the Technical Committee. In the Technical Services and Communication Committee, open seats were filled by Anixter and Hikvision respectively. The new committee members will start their work in November in conjunction with ONVIF's first anniversary.

"Reaching 100 members is a huge milestone for ONVIF and clearly shows the importance of global interoperability and standardization for our industry," says Jonas Andersson, Axis Communications, Chairman of ONVIF's Steering Committee. "We welcome all the newly elected members to the ONVIF committees and look forward to their contributions for another productive year for ONVIF. "

As further evidence that the ONVIF specification is now being rapidly taken up by the industry, several companies have recently announced ONVIF-conformant products. A complete list of products as well as member companies can be found at http://www.onvif.org/.
