Onvif is a globally recognized standard in IP cameras and Network Video Recorders which allow for open communication between various manufacturers and their products. What this effectively does is expand your freedom as an end user of IP Network Systems. You can mix and match any number of cameras and recorders, so long as they all follow the ONVIF protocol.
With that being said, the freedom that comes with being able to mix and match cameras and recorders gives you, the consumer, a wide range of options for your system. No longer are you limited by proprietary software that render hardware additions useless.
Camius equipment is designed with open compatibility in mind. See our ONVIF PoE Cameras
