A standard to retrieve video stored on 3rd party devices. This is the aim of ONVIF Profile G.
The proprietary nature of accessing recorded video has been a problem for years, forcing most users to limit themselves to a single recording platform and holding back the use of edge storage.
Now, after 2 years of release, 1396 devices, across more than 30 manufacturers, officially support ONVIF Profile G.
But does it work?
We tested 16 cameras from 6 manufacturers (Axis, Dahua, Hikvision, Panasonic, Pelco and Samsung) to see how well it did.
