There is little doubt that open standards and interoperability are playing increasingly central roles to modern, integrated physical security systems. But what do we mean by 'open standards'? Have we truly moved away from proprietary solutions? And what genuine benefits does interoperable technology bring to security teams? In this episode of the IFSEC Global Security in Focus podcast, we get the answers from Leo Levit, Chair of the ONVIF Steering Committee and Director of Systems Integrations at Axis Communications.

As an open industry forum that provides and promotes standardised interfaces for effective interoperability of IP-based physical security products, ONVIF's profiles cover everything from access control and door control management, to edge storage, video and analytics applications. So in other words, Leo is perfect guest to discuss this all with!

We also touch upon how the security industry has evolved from proprietary-based tech to open standards over the years. And, in the final few minutes, Leo offers his thoughts on the key trends ahead for security professionals.
