Standard definition of standards?
I’m curious what you think constitutes a standard in the physical security world. Consider this: a video solution that records onto off the shelf PC hardware, plugs into any network connection, communicates using TCP/IP, and is viewed with a browser – but utilizes a proprietary, non-H.264, compression method. Does it qualify as a standards-based solution?
What should standards apply to? I wonder… Please comment or drop me a note.
