PSIA releases content management specification

Santa Clara, California (USA)

The Physical Security Interoperability Alliance, a global consortium of physical security providers focused on promoting interoperability of IP-enabled devices in the security industry, has released its 1.0 Recording and Content Management (RaCM) specification for public use.

The specification standardizes the way recording and content management products interface with other devices in the security ecosystem, specifically security management systems. The primary goal is for the specification to be leveraged in recording devices and video management systems to enable users to have a single VMS to view recorded video.

Not only will the open interface reduce costs for solution providers, it will also help secure investments in hardware and software as security management systems that support the RaCM specification will support existing DVR/NVR solutions.

In the past year, PSIA has made significant strides in its drive to promote interoperability of IPbased standards throughout the physical security industry. PSIA's 1.0 API Media Device specification, which has been reviewed by technical experts that represent all segments of the
IP security market, enables interoperability between disparate video products, expanding opportunities for companies that provide solutions to the physical security marketplace.

PSIA's specifications are available free of charge and can be viewed at
