ONVIF Profile M Tested

By Rob Kilpatrick, Published Jan 11, 2022, 10:45am EST

ONVIF's Profile M promises a "standard way of communicating metadata and events" between cameras and clients, but how well does it really work?

IPVM Image

To see how Profile M works, we tested conformant Axis, Bosch, and Hanwha cameras with Milestone XProtect VMS, examining:

  • What metadata is supported via Profile M?
  • Is all camera metadata supported?
  • Is camera metadata configuration available from the XProtect client?
  • Can camera analytics rules be created in XProtect?
  • What configuration is required to enable Profile M events/metadata?
