Genetec Trumps Milestone for ONVIF Edge Support

Author: John Honovich, Published on Sep 10, 2014

Milestone's recent announcement has brought attention to improved VMS support for storage on-board cameras. However, as our note on Milestone's 'ONVIF Edge Storage' showed, important limitations exist.

Now, Genetec has responded highlighting their own more complete support.

Btw, one other interesting element to this is contrasting Milestone's marketing to Genetec's.

Despite Genetec's far longer and more complete ONVIF support, Milestone was better able to identify and promote their 'ONVIF' edge storage.

This has been a historical advantage for Milestone, even in cases where the technology is not better, Milestone's promotion is.

Any info on-hand regarding which other major VMS manufacturers have fully integrated ONVIF Profile G?

I have not heard of any. However, any VMS manufacturers reading this, please share if you have already or have short term (this year) plans to do so.

Was wondering how many VMS's could playback video directly form the SD card?

Secondly how many allowed you to only download the video you wanted from the edge device and not all the video?

AxxonSoft is supporting ONVIF Profile G in AxxonIntellect. During ONVIF Plagfest 2012 we tested interoperability with Panasonic cameras. In AxxonNext this feature will be introduced in version 4.0 around Q1 2015. But as it was with Profile S at earlie stages, most of integrations of Edge storages we still do with proprietary SDK, because support of Profile G by camera manufacturers is still very limited.
