Onvif concept add on

The add-on concept improves the ability to Onvif to respond more quickly to market needs, with greater interoperability and flexibility of choice for end users and system integrators.

Onvif has announced the add-on concept, that extends your compliance process to individual product features that can solve a specific problem.

This new concept enhances the organization's ability to respond more quickly to market needs with greater interoperability and flexibility of choice for end users and system integrators.

"The demand for more standardized solutions that can solve a wide variety of use cases continues to grow", says Leo Levit, Chairman of the Onvif Steering Committee. "How profile development can be a long process, add-ons will allow Onvif to more quickly offer additional capabilities and functionalities that bring the weight of compliance to market. We hope to see development proposals from members not only for profiles, but also for add-ons”.

An Onvif plugin is one or more features that solve a particular use case. For example, the need to standardize file formats when exporting video. To fit an add-in, a product must also conform to an Onvif profile.

the add-in concept improves the profile model by allowing declarations of compliance to additional features and capabilities that are not included in the c profiles.

A V profile implies a fixed and complete set of features that allow a functional product to be developed only in the profile specification. While the features included in the profiles cannot be changed, add-ons adapt to evolving specification/technology requirements. Because an add-in supports version handling, can be quickly updated to accommodate new additions or technology updates.

Expanding Onvif's compliance testing to include optional add-ons ensures a compatible device, as an IP camera, and an Onvif client, as a video management system, that comply with a plugin will work together regardless of the manufacturer.
