ONVIF Offers Testing Ground with Taipei Developers' PlugfestONVIF hosted its 15th ONVIF Developers' Plugfest (ODP) November 9-11 in Taipei, Taiwan. Engineers and developers from ONVIF member companies gathered at the members only event to test their implementations of ONVIF Profile Specifications with other ONVIF Profile-conformant products. In addition, all ONVIF clients had one hour of testing using ONVIF Device/Client Test Tool and had the opportunity to discuss with Test Tool developers any issues that arose during conformance testing.
The Taipei Plugfest drew 42 technical experts from 15 companies and attendees logged 136 hours of total testing time, with five ONVIF profiles tested for interoperability, including Profile Q for out-of-the-box interoperability, Profile S for IP-based video systems, Profile C for IP-based access control and Profile G for edge storage and retrieval. Some developers also tested for interoperability using Profile T for video, the newest ONVIF profile that is currently in development.
The 16th ONVIF Developers' Plugfest is scheduled for May 10-12, 2017, in Montreal, Canada, and will be hosted by Genetec.
