ONVIF Streamlines, Expands Interoperability Work with Open Source Development

SAN RAMON, California, July 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ONVIF®, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, announces it is implementing open source for its network interface specifications for physical security technology. The move will streamline administrative and collaborative processes while also leveraging the collective ingenuity of the global developer community. ONVIF interoperability specifications are already publicly available as open standards and are widely used as common communication interfaces between devices and software clients, such as IP surveillance cameras, video management software and physical access control systems from different manufacturers.
ONVIF is moving to open source development using GitHub to further its interoperability standards that connect IP devices, such as security cameras and physical access control devices, with management software from a variety of different manufacturers. Open source will enable developers from Artificial Intelligence, IoT Cloud and others to contribute new proposals and modify the ONVIF specifications to connect IP devices to fit a specific application in a wide range of verticals.
The use of GitHub, an online open source development platform, will allow for easier contribution and collaboration on ONVIF specifications by applying state-of-the-art software development tools to specification engineering. This will enable software engineers and developers from security, IoT, Artificial Intelligence, cloud services and other industries to contribute new ideas and proposals, spurring greater feature interoperability and new interface specifications that will help ONVIF continue to contribute to these industries. Other important aspects of ONVIF, such as the development of ONVIF profiles and test tools, the conformant product submission process, the activities of the ONVIF committees and working groups, and the ONVIF membership and governance structure remain unchanged.
"The data that powers our businesses and homes relies on feature-rich and standardized pathways of communications for interoperability, and ONVIF will continue to evolve to provide those pathways," said Per Björkdahl, chairman of the ONVIF Steering Committee. "Augmenting our development methods with open source adds a collaborative and convenient platform through which innovative ideas can be discussed and implemented and eases many of the administrative burdens that are inherent in the standards development process."
The source files of ONVIF specification-related documents, including schema files, which describe the XML framework of specific ONVIF features and functions, will be available on GitHub. The ONVIF Technical Committee will continue to govern the integration of new technical proposals and, once approved according to the ONVIF Rules of Membership, these will be published on the ONVIF website. All contributors are required to sign an ONVIF Contributor License agreement, and any changes that are ultimately accepted by the ONVIF Technical Committee will be licensed to ONVIF.
Over the course of its 11-year history, ONVIF has developed several profiles, which are groupings of certain functionalities derived from established ONVIF network interface specifications, that enable the performance of set features for common uses: Profile S for streaming video; Profile G for video recording and storage; Profile C for physical access control; Profile Q for quick installation, Profile A for broader physical access control configuration and Profile T for advanced video streaming. While profile development will not be a part of the open source strategy, ONVIF widely expects that specification contributions realized via open source will support the development of future profiles.
Founded in 2008, ONVIF is a leading and well-recognized industry forum that is committed to driving interoperability for IP-based physical security products. The organization has a global member base of established camera, video management system and access control companies, and more than 18,000 profile conformant products.

DGCA issues notice to SpiceJet

06 Jul 2022 | 8:05 PM

New Delhi, July 6 (UNI) The Directorate General of
Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Wednesday issued a show-cause notice to
SpiceJet for failing to 'establish safe, efficient and reliable air services.'

"The reported incidents on aircraft operated by SpiceJet from April 1, 2022, till date have been reviewed. It has been observed that on number of occasions, the aircraft either turned back to its originating station or continued landing to the destination with degraded safety margins. This shows poor internal safety oversight and inadequate maintenance actions as most of the incidents are related to either component failure or system related failure (resulting) in degradation of the safety margins,” the notice said.
