Leonid Levit has been named as the new chairman of the Onvif Steering Committee. Levit serves as Director of System Integration at Axis Communications and brings to the chairman’s role a strong technical background and more than a decade of product management, marketing and sales experience. Levit takes over from Per Björkdahl, who is stepping down from the role of chairman after nine years.
“For the past decade, Onvif has worked to facilitate nearly universal interoperability of IP physical security devices and clients, enabling end users and systems integrators to have freedom of choice in their selection of video surveillance and access control products,” stated Levit. “I look forward to being part of the next evolution of Onvif as it continues to support our evolving industry and the deepening relationships between analytics, IoT, AI and other technologies.”
Prior to his role as Director of System Integration, Levit was Global Product Manager of Analytics Solution at Axis. His past experience includes roles at Sony Mobile Communications and Ericsson Mobile Platforms.
