Axis Communications announces video redaction feature in AXIS Camera Station
AXIS Camera Station video management software (VMS) now includes a new function that makes it possible to export video surveillance footage while safeguarding the privacy of individuals. With video redaction, users have the ability to edit video footage and mask irrelevant objects or backgrounds before exporting to third parties. It is also possible to automatically generate masks for all moving objects in a scene, due to edge-generated analytics data from Axis network cameras. This function is useful for law enforcement purposes and to comply with privacy regulations. The masking keeps the original video stream intact so that it can also be exported and used as evidence in court.
As part of its ongoing commitment to innovating for a smarter, safer world, Axis Communications developed this new video redaction function to aid companies in adapting the use of video surveillance in order to comply with privacy regulations such as, GDPR in Europe and FISMA in the US.
AXIS Camera Station, a fully-featured video management software, supports the complete Axis portfolio, including cameras, audio, IO, door station products, encoders and decoders. The powerful and easy-to-use video management software is ideally suited for medium-sized operations such as schools, retail stores and manufacturing sites and offers an intuitive interface to handle incidents and quickly export high-definition video footage.
