EN 62676 is a European Standard that specifies the requirements for video surveillance systems for use in security applications. The standard provides guidelines for the design, installation, operation, and maintenance of video surveillance systems, with the aim of ensuring that they are effective in deterring, detecting, and responding to security threats.
EN 62676 is divided into several parts, each of which covers different aspects of video surveillance systems. These parts include:
- Part 1: System requirements
- Part 2: Video transmission protocols
- Part 3: Analog and digital video interfaces
- Part 4: Application guidelines
- Part 5: Data specifications
The standard includes requirements for the performance of video surveillance systems, such as image quality, frame rate, and resolution, as well as guidelines for the use of different types of cameras and lenses. It also covers topics such as storage and retention of video data, access control, and cybersecurity.
EN 62676 was developed by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) and is widely used in Europe as a basis for the certification of video surveillance systems. Compliance with the standard is often required by regulatory bodies, insurance companies, and other stakeholders in the security industry.
