Video surveillance systems for use in security applications – Part 1-2: System requirements – Performance requirements for video transmission
|Publication Date:||1 October 2013|

This part of IEC 62676 introduces general requirements on video transmission. This standard covers the general requirements for video transmissions on performance, security and conformance to basic IP connectivity, based on available, well-known, international standards.
Clauses 4 and 5 of this standard define the minimum performance requirements on video transmission for security applications in IP networks. In surveillance applications the requirements on timing, quality and availability are strict and defined in the last section of this standard. Guidelines for network architecture are given, how these requirements can be fulfilled.
Clause 6 and the next clauses of this standard define requirements on basic IP connectivity of video transmission devices to be used in security applications. If a video transmission device is used in security, certain basic requirements apply. First of all a basic understanding of IP connectivity needs to be introduced which requests the device to be compliant to fundamental network protocols. These could be requirements which may be applied to all IP security devices even beyond IP video. For this reason requirements are introduced in a second step for compliance to basic streaming protocols, used in this standard for video streaming and stream control. Since security applications need high availability and reliability, general means for the transmission of the video status and health check events have to be covered. These are defined in general requirements on eventing and network device management. In security proper maintenance and setup is essential for the functioning of the video transmission device. Locating streaming devices and their capabilities is a basic requirement and covered in ´device discovery and description´.
