PSIA Standards Progress Examined

By: John Honovich, Published on Dec 20, 2010

In our 2010 IP Camera Standards State of the Market report, we examined how far behind PSIA was and some of their deficiencies. In this update, we examine what progress PSIA has made in the month since and how they have resolved limitations on VMS testing.

In December 2010, PSIA released conformance tools [link no longer available] for live and recorded video clients (i.e., VMS/NVRs). This will allow VMS systems to verify conformance. According to the conformance plan [link no longer available], VMS systems must test with two PSIA conformant devices including H.264 and MJPEG streams. This is important to help ensure end to end PSIA connections (i.e., camera to VMS). The first VMS on the PSIA conformance list is NAS NVR manufacturer Synology (who also is on the ONVIF conformant list).

In terms of overall product support, PSIA now lists support for about 85 products up from 63 a month ago. By contrast, ONVIF now reports 507 products up from 389 a month ago. The ratio/lead for ONVIF remains about 6:1.
