Where can I find the Nx Meta SDK?
The Developer Tools for Nx Meta can be accessed directly from Nx Server in Web Admin. Below are the SDK's and what they do.
The Metadata SDK enables the integration of 3rd party video analytics systems and devices such as people and object recognition by supporting the exchange of metadata and events. Metadata SDK enables developers to create applications/plugins that take advantage of custom rules and events to fulfill a video analytics function.

Video Source SDK
The Video Source Integration SDK enables easy integration of any video source (live or archived) into the system. With the SDK, it's possible to create a method for discovering, displaying, analyzing, and recording video from virtually any live or recorded video source - IP Cameras, encoders, NVR's, DVR's, and more. It also allows for the integration of device I/O's (inputs & outputs) and motion detection metadata.
The Storage SDK enables easy integration of any potential storage. Using the Storage SDK developers can read from or write to any storage location - locally available, remote storage, and even cloud servers. Creating a storage plugin requires implementing standard functions such as I/O stream, if files exist, delete files, list of files in the folder, etc. The Storage SDK also contains an example of using an FTP server as a storage location.
