AXIS Metadata Monitor is a useful tool for validation and troubleshooting during development. Metadata streaming is functionality included in Axis products with firmware version 5.50 or higher. The metadata stream is a complementary stream that can be used to retrieve additional information about the device's current state. This can, for example, be used to include real-time notifications of device events and PTZ positions in a client application, and for enhanced search functionality.
