ONVIF Holds 16th Developers Plugfest in Québéc City

May 19, 2017

ONVIF®, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, hosted its 16th ONVIF Developers’ Plugfest (ODP) May 10–12 in Québéc City, Québéc, at the Delta Hotel Quebec City in the Old Town district. With multiple testings of ONVIF conformant products, the Developers’ Plugfest offered interoperability testing for five ONVIF profiles, including the Release Candidate of Profile A for broader access control configuration, which is scheduled for final release this summer. 

During the Plugfest, engineers and developers from ONVIF member companies tested their products’ implementation of ONVIF Profile Specifications with other ONVIF Profile-conformant products to ensure interoperability between conformant products from other vendors. In addition to Profile interoperability tests, attendees were offered one hour of testing using the ONVIF Device/Client Test Tools, as well as theopportunity to discuss with Test Tool developers any issues that arose during conformance testing.

“The ONVIF Developers’ Plugfest is a literal testing ground for members to establish that their products are ONVIF conformant and interoperable with other ONVIF-conformant products before they are released to the market,” said Steven Dillingham, Chairman of the ONVIF Technical Services Committee Taskforce, Developers‘ Plugfest. “The product development lifecycle can be long and involves the work of many hands, so when our members test their products at the Plugfest, it represents one of the final phases of product development after months of hard work.”

The ONVIF Developers’ Plugfest in Québéc City drew 32 attendees from 17 member companies from 13 different countries. Attendees logged 177 hours of total testing time during the three-day event, testing five ONVIF profiles for interoperability, including Profile Q for out-of-the-box interoperability, Profile S for IP-based video systems, Profile C for IP-based access control, Profile G for edge storage and retrieval and the Release Candidate of Profile A for broader access control configuration. Profile A is in the final stages of development and scheduled for release this summer.

The 17th ONVIF Developers’ Plugfest is scheduled for November 8-10, 2017, in Seoul, South Korea.

Founded in 2008, ONVIF is a leading and well-recognized industry forum driving interoperability for IP-based physical security products. The organization has a global member base of established camera, video management system and access control companies and more than 7,000 Profile conformant products. With Profile S for streaming video; Profile G for recording and storage; Profile C for physical access control; Profile Q for improved out-of-the-box functionality and the Release Candidate Profile A forbroader access control configuration, ONVIF continues to work with its members to expand the number of IP interoperability solutions ONVIF conformant products can provide.

Further information about ONVIF conformant products, including the vendors and the conformant models, is available on the ONVIF website: www.onvif.org.
