New data formats allow more flexible analysis for open field.
The Open Field modules of HVS Image 2014.4  (Beryllium build) now offer an additional open file format, BOND (Behavioral OpeN Data files) for storing digital data, which can be used and implemented by anyone. These can can be implemented by both proprietary and free and open source software, using the typical software licenses used by each. In contrast to closed formats, open formats (also called free file formats) are not encumbered by any copyrights, patents, trademarks or other restrictions (for example, if they are in the public domain) so that anyone may use it at no monetary cost for any desired purpose. The basic BOND format is based on the JSON standard outlined here http://www.ecma-international.org/publications/files/ECMA-ST/ECMA-404.pdf
