The Open Security & Safety Alliance (OSSA) and ONVIF, an , announced an agreement to develop data ontology and metadata specifications. The initiative will continue under a new ONVIF metadata working group.
ONVIF is an open industry forum supporting standardised communications between IP-based physical security products. Its metadata working group aims to develop standardised ways of richly describing objects of interest in captured video. In this work, the physical security industry can easily share and analyse data generated by IoT devices, like cameras.
“ONVIF is excited to build on this platform to ensure descriptive and detailed data that is generated by ONVIF conformant products can be used across surveillance systems and elsewhere,” said Leo Levit, Chairman ONVIF Steering Committee. ”We encourage ONVIF Full and Contributing members and their registered affiliates to join the new metadata working group and contribute to this initiative.”
