ONVIF Profile T Examined

By: Ethan Ace, Published on Dec 21, 2018

Despite ONVIF's overall success (11,000+ devices supported), ONVIF has been criticized for its limitations and problems, including VMD and video analytic issues, and various advanced integration restrictions.

Now, ONVIF has released Profile T, building on Profile S with "advanced video streaming capabilities and an expanded feature set" that aims to address these issues.

In this note, we examine:

  • H.265 Stream Support
  • Camera Side Motion Detection Support
  • Analytics Support
  • Event Support
  • Image Controls, Inputs, Configuration, PTZ enhancements
  • Camera manufacturers implementing
  • VMS providers implementing
