ONVIF, a global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, is a sponsor of the Security Industry Association’s April 6th and April 7th educational sessions offered at ISC West 2016. ONVIF is sponsoring 10 educational sessions in total, all part of the program’s Video Surveillance track.

“Continuing education is crucial for security professionals in maintaining a working knowledge of the trends and technology current in today’s physical security market,” said Per Björkdahl, ONVIF Steering Committee chair. “ONVIF is excited to support SIA’s Video Surveillance track with a sponsorship at this year’s ISC West.”

In addition to its sponsorship, ONVIF will be represented by more than 60 member companies exhibiting at ISC West, accounting for approximately 15 percent of all exhibitors at this year’s event. ONVIF will also be collecting feedback from attendees in the ISC West exhibition hall on ONVIF’s physical security profiles and future profile developments.

Founded in 2008, ONVIF now consists of nearly 500 member companies on six continents and more than 5,500 Profile conformant products. With Profile S for streaming video; Profile G for recording and storage; Profile C for physical access control and the Release Candidates Profile A, for access control configuration, and Profile Q, for improved out-of-the-box functionality, ONVIF said it continues to work with its members to expand the number of IP interoperability solutions ONVIF conformant products can provide.
