    Support Tip: ONVIF Profiles

    In the world of video surveillance, it's crucial to seamlessly integrate and collaborate devices from different manufacturers to build robust security systems. That's where the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standard comes in. It's a widely recognised open standard that revolutionizes communication between IP-based security products. Established in 2008, ONVIF provides a common platform that enables compatibility and interoperability among cameras, video management systems (VMS), and other devices.

    This section explores the significance of the ONVIF standard and introduces three new profiles to Nx Witness VMS. For a long time, Nx Witness VMS has been compatible with ONVIF Profile S, which played a key role in Nx Witness’s ability to support 99% of all IP Cameras. To enhance functionality even further, Nx Witness will now add ONVIF profiles T, G, and M.

    ONVIF Profile T is designed for advanced video streaming applications, including high-resolution video, bi-directional audio, and metadata streaming. It's not intended to replace Profile S but has its own specific application area. Profile T incorporates the media2 service, already supported in Nx, for H.265 video compression.

    ONVIF Profile G focuses on video storage and retrieval. With Profile G, clients can configure recordings, search, and footage replay. In an upcoming major release, Nx Witness will introduce an import function for edge recording, providing a seamless solution with a wide range of devices.

    ONVIF Profile M is designed for analytic applications, allowing configuration of event rules and information queries for metadata and unlike Profile T, streaming is not mandatory for ONVIF Profile M-compliant devices. ONVIF Profile M establishes a standard set of metadata formats and events that video analytics devices can follow, such as facial recognition, licence plate recognition, and line crossing counter. ONVIF Profile M is currently on the development roadmap for Network Optix and will be released in a upcoming verison. 

    In addition to ONVIF Profile M, Network Optix already integrates analytic events with numerous manufacturers through native API integration to ensure the best compatibility. To see the full list of supported events, please refer to Supported In-Camera Analytics. The list of supported vendors and event types will continue to grow to ensure the very best products Work With Nx.
