ONVIF Profile S Reviewed

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Feb 05, 2012

More than 1500 products are now ONVIF compliant but users cannot easily determine which features are supported by any given product. Features which many users would consider vital, such as PTZ control, the ability to change stream settings, and more, are considered optional under current specs. In order to address these concerns, ONVIF introduced a Profile system.

What do these profiles mean and how will this impact your use of ONVIF? In this update, we look at Profile S, the first to be released, what it supports, and how this differs from the current standard.
