Axis and Hid to Create First Open Standard for Integration of Video and Access Control

Monday 4 April 2005 18:08 CET | News

Axis Communications and HID, have partnered to develop the industrys first open standard, integrated network video and access control interface and protocols.

The Internet protocol (IP)- based platform enables application developers, system integrators, and OEMs to expand their system offerings by integrating network video and access control to address growing market requirements for converged security solutions. The platform will be developed and delivered as an open application programming interface (API). As the IT and security access control markets converge, this new platform will link previously disparate systems by enabling network video and access control systems to interoperate. In addition, Axis Application Development Partners (ADPs) will have the ability to integrate access control into their current video applications, while HIDs solution partners will be able to integrate video into their access control systems. Using the open standard from Axis and HID, application developers and OEMs will be able to build systems utilizing peer-to-peer communication, without having to communicate through a host server. For example, an event detected by the access control system will automatically trigger the network camera to record video. Other benefits include truly integrated video solutions where network cameras are directly linked via existing TCP/IP ports to access management systems for video verification using supervisory software or a central monitoring station. This new operating environment will offer a simpler and less expensive approach than traditionally linking analog video and digital video recorders.
