ONVIF Favorability Results 2019

By: IPVM Team, Published on Mar 15, 2019

In the past decade, ONVIF has grown from a reaction to the outside Cisco-lead PSIA challenge, to being the de facto video surveillance standard officially supported by 11,000 products and thousands of more illicitly.

Integrators have responded positively, in IPVM's latest study of 200+ integrators, with a clear majority positive, as the chart below shows:

However, that does not mean that integrators are completely happy with ONVIF, with numerous complaints about limited functionality and failure to ensure compliance leading the way.

In this note, we examine the key themes for integrators about ONVIF.
