Video Redaction Challenges

There are several challenges when providing video redaction. The number of subjects, amount of movement, duration of movement and quality of the video. These factors determine how quickly a technician can provide CCTV redaction services, regardless of video length (1-100 hours).

 For example, a lower quality video cannot be redacted as easily with many subjects. This is true especially when subjects are far from the camera. Our automatic redaction or manual redaction services can assist your department with stressful requests.
