ONVIF with OSSA to take over standardizing descriptive data by IoT devices
ONVIF today, December 20, announced an agreement with the Open Security & Safety Alliance (OSSA) to take over development of data ontology and metadata specifications. The initiative will continue under a new ONVIF metadata working group.
ONVIF metadata working group
The new ONVIF metadata working group is focused on developing standardized ways of richly describing the context in which objects of interest appear in captured video. This work enables the physical security industry to easily share and make use of data generated by analytics applications running on IoT devices, like cameras, for security and analytical purposes.
“ONVIF – says Leo Levit, Chairman ONVIF Steering Committee – 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. We encourage ONVIF Full and Contributing members and their registered affiliates to join the new metadata working group and contribute to this initiative”.
