Profile Q Video Transcript

Hi, I’m Bob Dolan, director of technology at Anixter. From talking to our customers we realize that many hours are spent by technicians trying to get security equipment properly programmed and communicating with the other security devices in the system.

That’s why we are so excited to tell you about ONVIF’s Profile Q. It’s another step towards a fully standards-based security system that is truly “plug and watch.”

As a reminder, ONVIF Profile system is a quick way to match products from various vendors and know that they will work together. Match products with the same profile support, and your system will work as expected.

With Profile Q, ONVIF expands the functionality covered by the standard with easy discovery, set-up and configuration of conformant devices as well as data-integrity and privacy.

Profile Q offers out-of-the-box functionality for systems integrators with an easy set-up mechanism and basic device level configuration, streamlining the setup and connection of systems and devices.

Profile Q also supports Transport Layer Security or TLS, a secure communication protocol that allows ONVIF devices themselves to communicate with clients across a network in a way that protects against tampering and eavesdropping.

Over the years we have seen the security device market move from totally proprietary to interoperability, and it’s now on the road to a fully open and standards compliant market.  ONVIF Profile Q is a giant step in the right direction.

When you are designing and installing security systems, do yourself a favor and be sure you are getting ONVIF-compliant devices.

For more information on ONVIF, talk to your local Anixter representative. Thank you.
