Axis Communications wins 2020 New Product of the Year Award
Axis Communications was recently awarded the 2020 New Product of the Year Award from Security Today in the Software-IT Solutions category for its AXIS Live Privacy Shield--a state-of-the-art analytic that allows users to effectively monitor live video while masking and protecting people’s privacy. Accordingly, the New Product of the Year Award recognized Axis for its outstanding product development achievement and dedication to improving security.
AXIS Live Privacy Shield effectively addresses rules and regulations protecting privacy and personal data by masking the identities of individuals in live and recorded video. The analytics software runs directly on Axis cameras and is the only edge-based solution that dependably masks moving people and objects in real time at up to full frame rate. AXIS Live Privacy Shield is designed for use in indoor areas with good, stable lighting, ideal for processing, manufacturing and logistics applications where video surveillance is primarily used to monitor the processes. Other potential applications include retail, education and government facilities where the environmental conditions for AXIS Live Privacy Shield are met.
