Yu Kitamura, Product Manager, Network Video Monitoring, Sony Europe explains the facts about metadata, and their benefits.
All organisations have to face the costly challenge of the storage and management of their valuable data. In the sphere of security, where visual data is indispensable, any avenues that make the capture, storage and retrieval of that information more efficient will command budget attention.
One of the inevitable costs of a comprehensive security operation is the money and resources required to store weeks of largely irrelevant security film, and also to identify and retrieve the relevant material from the archives when needed. What can make metadata- – or data about data – economically attractive is being able to save on those resources.
