DNAT (Deep Natural Anonymization) is a redaction feature for images and videos. It automatically detects personal identifiers (faces and license plates) and generates synthetic replacements reflecting the original attributes. Therefore, DNAT facilitates protecting identities while keeping necessary information for analytics or machine learning.

BEST

DNAT is solely used for detecting faces and license plates in images and videos as well as generating synthetic replacements so that industry-leading recognition algorithms are not able to identify the original face or license plate anymore. In cases where realistic human face attributes and license plate layouts are necessary for analytical or software development purposes and machine learning, the quality of the images remains, but the original faces and license plates are not part of the redacted footage anymore. Hereby, DNAT clearly facilitates the anonymization of images and videos.

For the redaction of license plates DNAT provides the option for the customer to use individual and customized output layer. This feature ensures that a synthetic license plate will not exist in reality by accident.

ATTENTION

Depending on the redacted images and videos, the use of DNAT may not always result in a complete anonymization of the respective footage. E.g., if a person wears a name tag, it may be possible to identify them even if their image is detected and redacted by the use of DNAT.

Customers should make use of the feature ensuring that a synthetic license plate will not exist in reality by accident (cf. above at BEST).

SUMMARY

Brighter Redact Enterprise is a software for the redaction of images and videos, which is to be hosted on customer's premise. The software provides for several redaction features, including precision blur, selective redaction and deep natural anonymization (DNAT). Only the latter feature is covered by the current certification. DNAT automatically detects faces and license plates in footage and generates synthetic replacements reflecting the original attributes. Therefore, it facilitates protecting identities while keeping necessary information for analytics or machine learning.
