CCTV Video Redaction
Secure CCTV Redaction and CCTV Pixilation service: conceal faces, distinguishing features, registration plates, screens, written notes and much more from CCTV footage.
Professional, in-house video and CCTV redaction services
We offer professional, in-house video and CCTV redaction and editing services for footage from camera-related surveillance equipment including:
- Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR);
- body worn video (BWV);
- unmanned aerial systems (UAS); and
- other systems that capture information of identifiable individuals or information relating to individuals.
Since the GDPR came into force there has been a rise in the number of SARs (Subject Access Requests) from individuals. Often overlooked, is the need, where necesary, for masking / pixilation of third parties in footage not related to the SAR.
Our CCTV redaction service is prompt and detail-focused. We provide expert knowledge to help you meet your privacy needs to help you mitigate risks and achieve compliance.
What is CCTV Video Redaction?
CCTV Video Redaction involves obscuring identifying information within individual video frames.
Our CCTV redaction services involve anonymising people or any identifiable information in video footage, which can include faces, vehicle registration plates, identifying clothing, tattoos, house numbers, notepads and computer / mobile phone screens. This information will be blurred out or pixelated through our service.
Why do you need to redact CCTV footage?
In some cases, redaction of third party individuals in CCTV or video footage is required because of the privacy intrusion which would result if they are identified or identifiable.
