Videotec, manufacturer of outdoor systems for professional video surveillance, is proud to celebrate 10 years as an ONVIF “contributing member”.
With over 35 years of experience in the video surveillance sector, Videotec
has actively spent the last 10 of those sharing in the ONVIF alliance mission to provide and promote standardized interfaces for effective interoperability of IP-based products. Adopting the ONVIF open standard guarantees optimum compatibility between IP products of different brands and makes integration into a security system easier and more secure.
Over the past 10 years, the specialist engineers on Videotec’s internal ONVIF team have collaborated directly within the organization to contribute significantly to the optimal development of the ONVIF protocol, the promotion of ONVIF specifications as an industrial standard, and the integration of this into Videotec’s IP products.
The commitment shown by Videotec’s team in the field was recognized and rewarded in the 2015 ONVIF Award Program.
Videotec has a strong presence in a number of vertical markets, with prestigious references in the transport and traffic, maritime and industrial, and energy and oil sectors. Videotec is committed to providing its global partners with high-performance, robust, and cyber-secure IP-based products that meet the stringent needs of these markets.
To this end, Videotec has the ONVIF Security Service specification on which it bases the implementation of its IP products’ IT security. The aim is to push the sector to move away from usernames and passwords towards the most up-to-date certificate-based authentication systems.
Thanks to the ONVIF standard, Videotec products offer great flexibility, security and full interoperability with third-party products, which allows them to function to optimum standards even in the most complex security systems.
Videotec ONVIF team member Enrico Campana says, “Our direct contact with the world of ONVIF has helped us Videotec engineers transition from analog to IP on all products available in our catalog currently. Our experience of working side-by-side with technicians from other companies in the video surveillance sector has been an important stimulus in the expansion and the sharing of our know-how in order to play an active role in this evolution. The skills acquired in recent years have given us the strength and confidence to face new technological challenges and satisfy increasingly stringent security, innovation and reliability requirements.”
