An automatic full body video redaction service is part of a second generation roll out of Ocucon Pixelate’s intuitive web-based software. That will allow users to select the people they do not wish to pixelate before footage is automatically redacted, in a matter of seconds.
A manual redaction tool will allow further features, such as car registration numbers or credit card details to be redacted. Users will also notice a new look and feel to the web-based portal in the intuitive second generation software. Ocucon Pixelate’s main UK distributor is Videcon.
The software will be exhibited at Retail Risk London on April 11; the next Security TWENTY 19 conference-exhibition, ST19 Glasgow, on Tuesday, April 30; and the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) Retail Asset Protection Conference 2019 in Denver, Colorado from May 5 to 8.
Harnessing artificial intelligence and machine learning, Ocucon’s pixelation service delivers cloud-based video redaction tools for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance. Users can upload and redact CCTV files via a secure web-based portal paid by monthly subscriptions.
Ocucon Co-Founder, Gary Trotter, said: “Many businesses and organisations don’t realise that if they record and store CCTV footage they could be subject to costly subject access requests. Tougher restrictions around personal data following the introduction of GDPR, can result in organisations needing to pixelate significant amounts of footage and the cost of outsourcing this can be extremely high.
“Our cost-effective, web-based service, Ocucon Pixelate, already allows organisations to quickly and easily upload and redact video footage and with the introduction of a first-of-its-kind full body redaction functionality, we’re yet again setting a new standard in surveillance technology as the most intuitive and cost effective video redaction service on the market.”
Originally launched in 2018, Pixelate’s software is already used by grocery retailers, high-street retail and food chains, councils and transport providers. For GDPR compliance you have an auditable log of video redaction and UK processed data. The developers add that the product is suitable for all types of camera footage, including body-worn cameras. You have end-to-end encryption of all footage and secure user access control via multi-factor authentication.
