Easy to Integrate

Complete ONVIF Standards Supported

ONVIF is the key for broad system interoperability among IP-based physical security products. The ONVIF specification is a global standard developed by an open industry forum. Moxa is an ONVIF user member, and most VPort IP video products support ONVIF specifications for simpler and faster integration with ONVIF-compatible third-party software.

User-Friendly SDK for Software Developers

VPort SDK PLUS is a user-friendly SDK (software development kit) used to add a VPort’s video streams to any type of third-party software, such as NVR, VMS and SCADA. For wider compatibility, the SDK supports three major technologies:

User-Friendly VPort SDK PLUS for Third-Party Software Developers

These URL commands are used in HTML and web systems, which are very popular platforms for video surveillance software.

ActiveX Control SDK:

ActiveX Control is an OCX component that is used widely in platforms that support WIN32, IE Plug-in, and Visual Basic, and is also popular in automation system software, such as SCADA systems. Moxa ActiveX Control SDK PLUS is a user-friendly, customized tool for programmers that supports versatile parameters for customized viewing, recording, PTZ camera control, event triggering, and recorded video playback.


API SDK, which includes a detailed C library, can be used to program customized solutions in a Visual C++ or C# environment. API SDK includes a total of 4 DLL modules, and currently supports the WIN32, Linux, and WIN CE pocket 2003 platforms.

Coding-Free Integration with SCADA Surveillance Systems

SCADA software is common in automation systems. Moxa VPorts have four flexible options for integration in SCADA software:


VPort IP video products support the Modbus/TCP protocol, allowing SCADA software to communicate directly with the VPort for status and configuration changes.

Video Gadget:

This code-free development tool simplifies the addition of ActiveX control SDK programming in SCADA software. The gadget is specifically designed to embed video display and recording functions in SCADA software, and eliminates much of the coding necessary to add IP video to a SCADA system.

OPC Communication:

Most SCADA software supports the OPC communication platform. Moxa's SoftNVR-IA IP surveillance software includes a built-in OPC server that directly communicates with SCADA software for event-triggered video display, recording, and video status.

Third-Party Platform Integration

With ONVIF compatibility, Moxa's IP cameras offer great system flexibility and provide seamless integration with major surveillance platforms, such as Milestones, Genetec, and Avigilon. In virtually any application, users can quickly add Moxa's extreme weather IP cameras as an addition to existing surveillance systems.
