As ONVIF set about standardizing communication between IP-based physical security products, it also had to find an easy way for companies to implement it, AND for customers to identify compatible products.

The solution was the Profile Concept. An ONVIF Profile defines a set of features that a conformant device and a client must support. The functionalities are selected from a wide range under the Network Interface Specification Set and grouped together to form a Profile.
