ACTi, a market provider in IP Surveillance technologies, has joined ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) in a new affiliation and membership to further the innovation of IP surveillance technology and video compression standards.
ONVIF is an independent, non-profit organization that was launched at Essen in 2008 with the purpose of creating an open platform for the IP surveillance industry.
Standards and goals are discussed and ideas are exchanged in an open forum to help create a common protocol for the exchange of information (such as device discovery, live video, audio, metadata and control information) between network video devices.
ACTi is encouraged with the growth of IP video as a surveillance standard. As the video surveillance world becomes fully immersed in IP video, it is extremely important for the industry to set standards, and ACTi is proud to be a provider in the revolution. As a market supplier in IP video compression technologies, we are excited to see an open forum where industry leaders can come together to collaborate and set standards. With both hardware and software divisions, ACTi will bring a unique perspective to ONVIF as a full solution provider. ACTi is dedicated to providing the market a full IP solution offering while becoming a proponent of open API architecture and highly efficient video compression standards.
