Dahua Technology hosts 13th ONVIF developer’s plugfest in Hangzhou

Dahua Technology recently hosted the 13th ONVIF Developer’s Plugfest.  The 13th ONVIF Developer’s Plug-fest was held at Dahua Headquarters in Hangzhou, China from November 11th to 13th. More than 57 senior technical experts representing state-of-art IP-based manufacturers from around the world attended this testing event. As a full member of ONVIF, Dahua was honored to host this important annual event.

ONVIF is a non-profit, leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products that was founded in 2008. Its members include manufacturers, systems integrators, end users, members of the security media, specifies and other security professionals. The ONVIF standard currently addresses IP video surveillance and access control.

The Plugfest consisted of two parts: peer-to-peer testing and user scenario testing. This format enabled manufacturers to test devices for conformance to the ONVIF standard and also provided a chance to simulate a real-world operation environment for testers. For example, the testing included testing interoperability between multiple brands’ devices operating at the same time as one system, working together.

As a full member of ONVIF, Dahua Technology tested both devices and clients for conformance with Profile S, Profile G and Profile Q. During the three-day testing, the manufacturers present tested their systems’ interoperability with Dahua’s systems. The test results show that both Dahua clients and servers conform to the ONVIF Network Interface Specification Set, version 2.4.2, and also that Dahua front-end and storage devices can support recording control, search, replay, and many other functions with conformance to Profile G. Dahua’s devices are also capable of supporting extended features such as video analytics and OSD in addition to basic features such as video, PTZ, event and live streaming.
