IP Camera


ONVIF stands for Open Network Video Interface Forum. Its aim is to provide a standard for the interface between different IP-based security devices. In simple terms, ONVIF specifications provide a consistent way for devices from multiple manufacturers to work together


ONVIF uses RTSP so, by definition, more systems will support RTSP than ONVIF. However, ONVIF adds lots of advanced functionalities (camera configuration, authentication, VMD, PTZ control, i/o, etc.) beyond the basic streaming that RTSP supports.
