Oncam, the security division of Oncam Technologies and provider of 360-deg. camera technology, announced the company’s Evolution 05 MP camera line has achieved ONVIF Profile S conformance. Conformance with the ONVIF specification enables the camera suite to be integrated with a wide range of VMS from other manufacturers that also meet ONVIF specifications

All five 5MP Evolution models are now conformant with Profile S, which describes the common functionalities shared by ONVIF-conformant VMS and devices such as IP cameras or encoders that send, configure, request or control the streaming of media data over an IP network. The profile includes specific features such as PTZ control, audio streaming and relay outputs.

To achieve conformance to the ONVIF Profile S specification, the Evolution cameras were evaluated and tested against stringent criteria. Conformance to a particular ONVIF profile is based on self-declaration by ONVIF members, and is based on a test specification and test tool.

“We have invested a significant amount of effort to enhance the stability and performance of the Evolution camera’s architecture, and the positive ONVIF test results demonstrate our achievements,” said Steve Dillingham, principal software engineer, Oncam. “Open standards give integrators and end users the freedom to choose the technologies that are going to work best for their specific environment. Oncam’s willingness to integrate with other manufacturers helps us provide our customers with solutions that work cohesively with the other technologies.”

The Evolution 05 camera incorporates Oncam’s patented three-dimensional dewarping software to enable live and retrospective analysis of an entire scene to quickly identify threats. The Evolution indoor camera has a 5MP sensor and no moving parts. The unit is designed for quick and easy installations, offers convenient mounting and enclosure options and fully supports PoE.
