    Hi Paul,

    It would be nice indeed, but it all depends on priorities and volume.
    I don't expect Uniview to be integrated on a short notice, but likely in the future, they will.

    Thanks; they are listed as a partner :). They're pretty good for the price range, they have similar analytic features as the cameras you do support for considerably less cost.

    I'm curious, while I understand x265 isn't part of the ONVIF spec and hence requires per-camera brand integration, why don't you support generic ONVIF based analytics? I actually put together a simple proxy that subscribes to ONVIF events on the uniview cameras and then submits them as generic events via the API. Is there some limitation of the ONVIF analytics implementation that made you decide not to use it?

     

    Thanks...

    Hi Paul,

    Listed as a partner doesn't necessarily mean the whole API is integrated. 
    Although we have a great team of developers, they also have their limitations what they can do, so we need to make choices. 

    The market share of UNV is definitely increasing so we might expect some change in the future, But I also must be honest, I don't expect any change within a few weeks. 

    Onvif analytics is on its way.

    I can report that H265 works with Uniview.

    You mean H265 works if you configure the software not to manage the stream settings and then manually choose H265 by accessing the camera configuration directly? Well, yes; but this ticket is asking for nx witness itself to know the camera supports H265 and use it when when optimizing the stream settings on its own. As well as supporting camera events.
