Ocucon’s intelligent video redaction service - Ocucon Pixelate - is set to drastically reduce the cost of CCTV GDPR compliance with the launch of new automatic full body video redaction. Part of a second generation roll out of Ocucon Pixelate’s intuitive web-based software, the introduction of the pioneering full body redaction technology will allow users to simply select the people they do not wish to pixelate before footage is automatically redacted in a matter of seconds.
In addition, a new user-friendly manual redaction tool will allow additional features, such as car registration numbers or credit card details to be redacted quickly and easily. Users of Ocucon Pixelate will also notice a new look and feel to the web-based portal as part of the roll out of its intuitive second-generation software.
Residential security market
Ocucon Pixelate is partnering with Videcon, its main UK distributor, to exhibit at the event and can be found on stand SE50
The new automatic full body redaction functionality will be unveiled at The Security Event, a major new exhibition for the commercial and residential security market at The NEC Birmingham from 9th – 11th April 2019. Ocucon Pixelate is partnering with Videcon, its main UK distributor, to exhibit at the event and can be found on stand SE50.
The second generation Ocucon Pixelate software will also be exhibited at Retail Risk London, the risk management and loss prevention event for the retail industry on the 11th April 2019; Security TWENTY 19 in Glasgow on the 30th April 2019; and the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) Retail Asset Protection Conference 2019 in Denver, Colorado from the 5th – 8th May 2019. Harnessing the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning, Ocucon’s innovative pixelation service delivers intelligent cloud-based video redaction tools for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance.
Outsourced redaction services
Whereas traditional outsourced redaction services are time consuming and costly, Ocucon Pixelate allows users to quickly upload and redact CCTV files via a secure web-based portal for a fraction of the cost, with monthly subscriptions starting from as little as £20 per month.
Ocucon Co-Founder, Gary Trotter, commented: “Many businesses and organisations don’t realise that if they record and store CCTV footage they could be subject to costly subject access requests. Tougher restrictions around personal data following the introduction of GDPR, can result in organisations needing to pixelate significant amounts of footage and the cost of outsourcing this can be extremely high. Our cost-effective, web-based service, Ocucon Pixelate, already allows organisations to quickly and easily upload and redact video footage and with the introduction of a first-of-its-kind full body redaction functionality, we’re yet again setting a new standard in surveillance technology as the most intuitive and cost effective video redaction service on the market.”
