Axis Communications unveils AXIS Live Privacy Shield, the market’s only edge analytics software for cameras that masks people in real time in video streams at up to full frame rate.
The solution is reliable and cost-effective. It addresses privacy rules and regulations, and at the same time, lets users see movement and activity on their premises. Because it runs directly on selected Axis cameras, no expensive servers are required, and it is easy to scale.
AXIS Live Privacy Shield compares a live camera view to a set background scene and applies a detailed and dynamic transparent mask to areas of change. In other words, moving people and objects appear as transparencies over a background. The entire process happens faster than the blink of an eye and effectively eliminates the collection of personal data.
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.
