Panasonic introduces Automated Redaction
Panasonic has launched IDguard, an identity redaction solution that reduces up to 90 per cent of the manual effort associated with editing video files of sensitive content. Panasonic has combined AI and machine learning technologies to automate the video redaction process, reducing the burden for operators.
With the growing volume of video from body-worn, in-car cameras and other sources, agencies have been forced to allocate more and more personnel time to editing video to fulfil Freedom of Information Act requests. One of the most time-consuming aspects of this is the manual redaction of individuals’ faces to address privacy concerns. Panasonic IDguard automates this redaction, saving time and resources.
Designed to be user-friendly, IDguard enables operatorss to streamline file editing tasks and respond to requests quickly. It can also reduce the time needed for the manual processes of uploading, storing, searching, editing, and sharing video content. It includes the capability to upload multiple videos for overnight batch redaction processing. The interface is easy to learn and use, and a comprehensive set of administrative tools provides strict, secure, multi-user management with critical editing capabilities.
With support for all videos in MP4 format including video from iPhones and Android devices, IDguard also offers flexible configuration options with on-premise storage now, and cloud-based storage du later in the year. Ingestion APIs make integration and communication with existing systems easy, including Panasonic i-PRO’s Unified Digital Evidence (UDE) solution. Scalable options are available to fit any user’s budget, access or security needs.
