I have a question in regard to the differences between the onvif compliant driver and the universal driver. What is the difference?

I know that some devices may not be onvif compliant and the universal driver can be utilized with the correct uri.

A universal driver can be used on an onvif compliant device with the correct uri.

Is there a major benefit to using the onvif compliant driver if the device is compliant?

Thanks

Hi Ryan,

There is a major difference between the two.

With ONVIF if the device has the capability to support onboard edge device analytics, camera inputs/outputs, microphone, speaker as well as metadata.

Whereas the Universal driver doesn't support this functionality and it simply provides you a video feed from the device itself.

ONVIF is also more commonly used compared to the universal driver unless you have a non ONVIF compliant device.

Hi,

Thank you for the information. I will definitely have to do some testing with the onvif cameras.

Thank you
