Video – AI Automatic Video Redaction

AI Automatic Detection is designed to redact specific items within videos that may contain lots of movement or objects (cars, people, faces, etc) in an extremely efficient manner, enabling you to redact videos in a fraction of the time it would take to do so manually while maintaining the same effectiveness. As such, learn how to use the AI Automatic Detection feature within CaseGuard Studio to seamlessly redact video footage in a matter of minutes.

  1. In the lefthand Toolbar, click on the smiley face for AI Detection. This will then open the AI Automatic Detection pop-up window.
  2. From within the AI Automatic Detection Popup window, Select the object(s) you want to detect by checking the box for the appropriate object within the “Select what to detect” section. For example, you can select faces, and license plates, then click Next.
  3. Select your redaction shape and effect from within the “Select effects for:” For example, you can select the ellipse shape and the blur for effect. You can then click Next.
  4. Select where within your video you want to run the object detection. By default, the detection will run for the whole video, but you can select start and end times or frames to run detection on. This can be helpful to run the detection faster if, for example, you have an hour video and the first 30 minutes is only an open field that has no objects on; you can select for the detection to start at minutes 30 and end at minute 60, this will save half an hour of detection processing time. After you finish with the time settings, Click Next.
  5. Now you can classify the objects detected within your video, meaning that the various faces, vehicles, license plates, etc., that are detected within the video will be classified into individual groups. It’s useful to classify if you want to un-redact one person or more from the group. If you want to redact every object, you can uncheck the classify option to run the detection much faster. You can then click the Apply button to start the redaction process.
  6. In the Object Detection Panel, you will see all the objects that are being detected. You can also hover over the object to see the level of confidence the system is detecting that object.
  7. From within the status bar, you can see the detection progress bar.
  8. The Effects timeline will show you the detection progress thus far.
  9. When watching your video, you will see your Shape & Effect being applied automatically in real-time.
  10. From within the media player, click to check the detection on your video.
  11. When you see something that you want to update within your video, click from within the media player to pause your video.
  12. If you’d like to disable a redaction from any of the detected objects from the Object Detection Panel, click on the eye icon   by the detected object to disable the effect on that object.
  13. When you are done and happy about the results, from the top right corner click the “Export” button to begin the Export process.
  14. Give your newly redacted file a name, then click Export.
