However, the growing use of Video Content Analytics in both critical and not critical applications has not been previously covered in any standard. Today, end-users have currently no way of assessing the various options available and their expectations are often unsatisfied.
“WD 62676-6 Video Content Analysis Performance – Testing and Grading” is a new standard drafted to provide the Industry and end-users with a way of measuring the various criteria and reinforce confidence in the concept of Video Content Analysis.
A new work item has just been accepted by the International Electro-technical Commission’s Technical Body TC79 and Working Group 12 is now in charge of defining the corresponding standard. The standard is set to define the evaluation procedure and criteria for both server based and on-edge analytics, and will establish an Application Guide on how to install and calibrate Video Content Analytics on site.
A point of focus for the standard will be ‘scenarios’, a list of defined situations that are analysed and reproducible for testing the performance of VCA algorithms, such as Abandoned baggage detection and doorway surveillance. The standard will define the ‘specific operational requirements for creating scenarios’. The standard will provide examples of evaluation video clips for the listed scenarios of this standard and define the parameters of the scenario.
