ONVIF®, the global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products, announced that it will speak at ISC West 2018, April 10-13, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, Nev., as part of SIA Education@ISC, the Security Industry Association’s educational program held in conjunction with ISC West. ONVIF will also be hosting the ONVIF Lounge at Booth L0 within the Sands Expo, where attendees can relax and recharge their mobile devices.
Interoperability vital for city surveillance
ONVIF Steering Committee member Stuart Rawling will be speaking on behalf of ONVIF on ‘Interoperability: The Engine Running Safe Cities’ on April 12, 2018, from 1:15-2:15 PM. The presentation will focus on the benefits of a standardised approach to safe city deployments, and how standards like ONVIF can help to close the gap between disparate systems. Rawling, who also serves as Head of Segment Marketing of Pelco by Schneider Electric will also address how different cities, manufacturers and systems integrators are approaching safe city deployments with a focus on the role of interoperability.

“Standards can assist in successfully deploying a comprehensive system with multiple technologies into a single, cohesive entity,” said Per Björkdahl, Chair of the ONVIF Steering Committee. “With the ability to integrate various sensors and data from many different devices synthesized through one interface, government officials and law enforcement are afforded a more complete picture of their city’s security.”
Expanding IP-based interoperability solutions
ONVIF will also be kicking off the celebration of their 10th anniversary. Attendees are encouraged to stop by the ONVIF Lounge at Booth L0, relax and recharge, and learn more about how ONVIF has continued to evolve based on member feedback, and in response to the expanding demands of the security market as a whole.
