Latest Axis firmware now supports ONVIF Profile G

September 1st, 2016 by Paul Sandford

Axis firmware supporting ONVIF Profile GAxis products using firmware 6.3 or above will now support not only ONVIF Profile S for streaming video and audio, but also ONVIF Profile G for edge storage and recording.

This is good news for anyone using an Axis IP camera with Video Management Software (VMS) that uses ONVIF standards to support Axis cameras rather than a specific Axis driver. We see this scenario sometimes with a CCTV system that has expanded over time using components from a variety of manufacturers.

Devices (e.g. a network camera or video encoder) and clients (e.g. VMS) that conform to ONVIF Profile G support the configuration, search, playback and retrieval of recordings on edge-based or network-attached storage. Profile G also includes support for receiving audio and a metadata stream if the client supports those features.

This is a notable step forward for ONVIF. Profile S was introduced in 2012 as the standard interface to stream video and audio between conformant devices and clients (the majority of Axis products now already support ONVIF Profile S). Live video is of course just one half of the equation and the introduction of Profile G now completes that equation with video storage, further refining the level of interoperability among ONVIF-conformant products.

Which Axis IP cameras support this firmware version?

The full list of firmware versions for Axis products is quite long so we’ve noted the products that are currently on firmware version 6.3 or above.
