The aim of the award is “To recognize both individuals and companies who have made significant contributions to the industry, which have helped it to mature and grow in a number of ways. This could be from work with standards, interoperability, integration, etc., but does not include work on any specific products.”
According to the award criteria, the winner:
- has motivated and inspired others in the forum;
- has demonstrated the ability to take charge by creating or developing a program, project or activity that has impacted the forum;
- is recognized for their commitment to the success of the forum and its work; and
- has significantly contributed to the wider adoption of the ONVIF specification as the industry standard.
Thanks to its years of experience with PTZ cameras, Videotec has contributed to, and continues to be active in, the development of procedures, especially when it comes to positioning systems for cameras in harsh environments.
Alessio Grotto, president of Videotec, said, “We welcome this important recognition with great joy and satisfaction and we thank Ottavio for his work. Videotec has always recognized the importance of open, standardized procedures to ensure maximum interoperability of video surveillance devices.”
