Pacom Joins ONVIF To Drive Access Control Standardization
Monday, 19th July 2010
Pacom Systems is proud to announce joining the global open standards industry forum ONVIF as a contributing member.
ONVIF is a global and open industry forum that is committed to standardize communication between network devices and ensure interoperability between network products for the security market. Originally focused on network video products, ONVIF has since extended their scope to include physical access control systems.
The goal of the scope extension is to create a global network interface standard for access control devices as well as to ensure interoperability between network video products and access control systems. As a contributing member, Pacom can actively influence the development of the ONVIF specification by participating in the work of the forum.
"For Pacom, it was an easy decision to join ONVIF and take an active part in driving the standardization work" said Pacom Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Johan Lembre. "We believe this is very good for the whole industry, not just the end customer, and will create a lot of new exciting opportunities ahead" continued Mr. Lembre.
Pacom is one of the first organizations to join ONVIF in this effort to extend interoperability between different access control vendor's products, simplify installation, and provide greater freedom of choice to end users in order to protect and future-proof their investment.
Established in 2008 by Axis Communications, Bosch Security Systems and Sony Corporation, ONVIF is a global and open industry forum that is committed to standardize communication between network devices and ensure interoperability between network products for the security market. ONVIF's mission is to facilitate the integration of network security and safety devices using a global open standard. ONVIF membership is open to manufacturers, software developers, consultants, system integrators, end-users and other interest groups that wish to participate in the activities of ONVIF.
