In line with ONVIF's membership rules, the forum held an election for the committee seats at its annual meeting in Anaheim, California on Sept. 23. As a result, Siemens is now a new member of the Steering Committee, Panasonic has been reelected for both the Steering and the Technical Committee and Cisco has been reelected for the Technical Committee. In the Technical Services and Communication Committee, open seats were filled by Anixter and Hikvision respectively. The new committee members will start their work in November in conjunction with ONVIF's first anniversary.
“Reaching 100 members is a huge milestone for ONVIF and clearly shows the importance of global interoperability and standardization for our industry,” said Jonas Andersson, Axis Communications, Chairman of ONVIF's Steering Committee. “We welcome all the newly elected members to the ONVIF committees and look forward to their contributions for another productive year for ONVIF."
