AXIS Live Privacy Shield to add mosaic dynamic masking
AXIS Live Privacy Shield compares a live camera view to a set background scene and applies dynamic masking to areas of change—essentially, moving people and objects. Not only would users be able to choose between color or mosaic masking, but they would also be able to set the level of masking required, and decide how often the background should automatically update. Color masking provides the greatest privacy protection, effectively eliminating the collection of personal data while enabling movements to be seen. Mosaic masking shows moving objects in very low resolution and allows users to better distinguish forms by seeing an object’s colors.
By default, dynamic masking is applied to the camera’s entire field of view, but users can choose to define areas where masking is not applied—for example, if there is a conveyer belt with moving objects that they want to be able to see. Users can also configure the system to deliver a separate video stream without dynamic masking, so authorized viewers can access details in case of an incident.
AXIS Live Privacy Shield is suitable for remote video monitoring or recording in areas where surveillance is otherwise problematic due to privacy rules and regulations. It is ideal for processing, manufacturing and logistics applications when video surveillance is primarily used to monitor processes. Other potential applications are in retail, healthcare, education and at government facilities.
