ONVIF, the global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products, has announced that chairman Per Björkdahl will be speaking on behalf of the organisation at both the Amsterdam Security Conference (which takes place on Thursday 1 November) and at SKYDD Protection 2016 in Stockholm, which runs on Thursday 27 October. Björkdahl will address attendees on the key role of standards and their relevance in terms of the fast-evolving Internet of Things (IoT).
At the Amsterdam Security Conference, Björkdahl will speak on How The IoT Is Changing Physical Security. This event takes place at the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre. The SSA Conference is hosted by RAI Amsterdam and the Netherlands’ Association of Security Professionals (VBN) and will be attended by security and facility managers, security consultants, vendors, system integrators and representatives of installation management companies.
“Given the proliferation of the Internet of Things, it’s particularly important for smaller integration and manufacturing companies to leverage the integrations gained through ONVIF and, indeed, for end users to understand the flexibility offered by ONVIF,” said Björkdahl, the leader of ONVIF’s Steering Committee. “ONVIF welcomes the opportunity these conferences provide for engaging with system integrators, end users and manufacturers at the regional level and highlighting the benefits ONVIF can provide for them.”
Björkdahl will also be a speaker at SKYDD Protection 2016 in Stockholm. Here, Björkdahl is to address delegates on ONVIF’s Functional Standards for Interoperability as part of the ‘Smart Cities’ seminar track. The conference is to be hosted by Stockholm International Fairs.
Founded back in 2008, ONVIF now consists of nearly 500 member companies in six continents and encompasses more than 7,000 Profile-conformant products. Supported by Profile S for streaming video, Profile G for recording and storage, Profile C for physical access control, Profile Q for improved out-of-the-box functionality and the Release Candidate Profile A focused on access control configuration, ONVIF continues to work with its members on expanding the number of IP interoperability solutions that ONVIF-conformant products can provide.
