Video surveillance systems for use in security applications – Part 2-3: Video transmission protocols – IP interoperability implementation based on Web services
|Publication Date:||1 November 2013|
|ICS Code (Alarm and warning systems):||13.320|
This part 2-3 of IEC 62676 defines procedures for communication between network video clients and video transmitter devices based on Web Services. This new set of specifications makes it possible to build network video systems with devices and receivers from different manufacturers using common and well defined interfaces. These interfaces cover functions such as device management, real-time streaming of audio and video, event handling, Pan, Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) control, video analytics as well as control, search and replay of recordings.
The management and control interfaces defined in this standard are described as Web services. This international standard also contains full XML schema and Web Service Description Language (WSDL) definitions for the introduced network video services.
In order to offer full plug-and-play interoperability, the standard defines procedures for device discovery. The device discovery mechanisms in the standard are based on the WS-Discovery specification with extensions. These extensions have been introduced in order to cover the specific network video discovery needs.
This standard is not limited to discovery, configuration and control functions, but defines precise formats for media and metadata streaming in IP networks using suitable profiling of IETF standards. Furthermore, appropriate protocol extensions have been introduced in order to make it possible for network video manufacturers to offer a fully standardized network video transfer solution to its customers and integrators.
video transmission device supporting compliance to the requirements of this standard with the help of Web services according to the specification of this part is declared as compatible to IEC 62676-2 Web service Interoperability.
