ONVIF announces Leonid Levit as new chairman

ONVIF, the global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products, has appointed Leonid Levit as the new chairman of the ONVIF Steering Committee.

ONVIF-LeonidLevit-21Levit serves as Director of System Integration at Axis Communications and brings to the chairman’s role a strong technical background and more than a decade of product management, marketing and sales experience. Levit takes over from Per Björkdahl, who is stepping down from the role of chairman after nine years.

“For the past decade, ONVIF has worked to facilitate nearly universal interoperability of IP physical security devices and clients, enabling end users and systems integrators to have freedom of choice in their selection of video surveillance and access control products,” Levit said. “I look forward to being part of the next evolution of ONVIF as it continues to support our evolving industry and the deepening relationships between analytics, IoT, AI and other technologies.”

Prior to his role as Director of System Integration, Levit was Global Product Manager of Analytics Solution at Axis. His past experience includes roles at Sony Mobile Communications and Ericsson Mobile Platforms.

Founded in 2008, ONVIF is a leading and well-recognised industry forum driving interoperability for IP-based physical security products. The organisation has a global member base of established camera, video management system and access control companies, and more than 19,000 profile conformant products.

ONVIF offers Profile S for streaming video; Profile G for recording and storage; Profile C for physical access control; Profile Q for improved out-of-the-box functionality; Profile A for broader access control configuration and Profile T for advanced streaming. ONVIF continues to work with its members to expand the number of IP interoperable solutions ONVIF conformant products can provide.

Further information about ONVIF conformant products, including member companies and their conformant models, is available on the ONVIF website.
