ONVIF’s growing membership of approximately 500 companies and more than 3,200 different conformant products available to the market signifies a continued growth in industry interest and adoption of the ONVIF specification. To continue the industry dialogue about the influence of standards in the physical security industry, ONVIF hosts a series of networking receptions and public interoperability demonstrations at major security industry conferences around the world. These gatherings continue to attract significant numbers of industry participants who are attending an ONVIF event for the first time or who have no affiliation with ONVIF.
Also at IFSEC 2014, ONVIF Chairman Per Björkdahl, will be presenting highlights of the current state of standardization initiatives on the security industry and ongoing impacts of ONVIF as part of the Convergence Solutions Theatre, 11:30 to 12:00 on Tuesday, 17 June.

In addition, Björkdahl will participate in a panel discussion focusing on a review of standards developments. The panel will be comprised of key members of the industry’s networks providers who will debate this topic. This event will take place from 13:00 to 14:00, Tuesday, June 17 in the Convergence Solutions Theatre, ExCel London.
