Software module for obfuscation of video data is awarded the EuroPriSe seal for the seventh time
Privacy Protector is a software module for integration in a video management system which provides very effective algorithms for the obfuscation of video data.
Since receiving the seal for KiwiVision Privacy Protector for the first time in 2009, Genetec Austria GmbH (formerly: KiwiSecurity Software GmbH) has succeeded in renewing it continuously. The current recertification of the Privacy Protector is the sixth one after previous recertifications in 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019.
The purpose of the Privacy Protector is to anonymize video data (by obfuscating persons or objects in the video) from surveillance cameras and storage devices in real-time. It also provides the possibility to define fixed obfuscated or non-obfuscated regions. Potential areas of operation range from highly frequented public spaces (airports, railway stations, etc.) to working places.
In practice, the Privacy Protector will operate between the video signal of surveillance cameras and the picture displayed on the monitor or the storage device. Furthermore, it can be used to obfuscate video data retrieved from a storage device. This results in displaying just obfuscated video data, with the monitored persons not being identifiable.
The re-evaluation was conducted by EuroPriSe Technical and Legal Expert Mag. Andreas Krisch and showed that the Privacy Protector continues to meet all applicable EuroPriSe requirements of the current criteria catalogue v201701.
