Implementing ONVIF for Axis Cameras

Author: John Honovich, Published on May 16, 2010

From our testing and review with Axis, an important and non-obvious procedure is necessary to ensure ONVIF support is implemented directly. As Axis describes:

"If an Axis camera with ONVIF support is first used in an ONVIF environment, the ONVIF interface is automatically enabled. If an Axis camera first is used in a VAPIX environment, ONVIF is automatically disabled."
