Honeywell DVM Now Complies with ONVIF Equipment

MINNEAPOLIS, June 14, 2011 – Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced its Digital Video Manager™ (DVM) — a digital closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance system – has achieved compliance with the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standards for IP-based security systems. DVM can now interface with other video system technologies that comply with ONVIF-version 1.02, allowing organizations to more easily design integrated IP-based video security systems.

ONVIF is a global consortium of vendors that have collaborated to create an open interface for all video applications such as streaming video systems and digital cameras operating on an IP network. Similar to the analogue standard National Television System Committee (NTSC), ONVIF enables organizations to integrate complete IP-based video systems using various vendor-designed security technologies that are ONVIF compliant.

“When IP-based security systems were introduced, the technology lacked an industry-wide standard that greatly hindered users’ ability to outfit and upgrade their security systems with the best technologies available,” said Paul Orzeske, president of Honeywell Building Solutions. “Now that Honeywell’s DVM is ONVIF compliant, we move closer to giving our customers the freedom to more intricately integrate and design their video security systems with the latest technologies.”

DVM is a component of Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI), Honeywell’s building management system that boosts efficiency and reduces operating costs by integrating core technology — security, life safety, HVAC, lighting and energy systems — and allowing operators to view and control these functions from a single workstation. The latest version of DVM, R400, allows security personnel to view video from multiple DVM systems on one virtual platform, regardless of geography. This is beneficial for multi-site and critical infrastructure applications because it provides central monitoring and control of all cameras and equipment on a network. The distributed architecture also increases system scalability and eliminates any single point of failure, which allows each remote DVM system to operate independently in the event of a problem at one site.
