The Public Safety Solutions Group, a business unit of Panasonic i-Pro Sensing Solutions Corporation of America (PIPSA), announces the availability of IDguard, an identity redaction solution from Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America (PSSNA) Division of Panasonic Corporation of North America (PNA) that reduces up to 90 percent of the manual effort associated with editing video files of sensitive content, according to the company.

“We are very pleased to establish an agreement with Panasonic Systems Solutions Company of North America that will enable us to offer IDguard to our authorized partners through our distributor channel.” said Bill Brennan, president of PIPSA. “In developing this solution, PSSNA has combined AI and machine learning technology to automate the video redaction process, greatly lightening the burden for our law enforcement community." 

With the growing volume of video from body-worn, in-car cameras, and other sources, agencies have been forced to allocate more and more personnel time to editing video to fulfill Freedom-of-Information-Act (FOIA) requests. One of the most time-consuming aspects of this is the manual redaction of individuals’ faces to address privacy concerns. With IDguard, this redaction is automated, saving a tremendous amount of time for agencies.

A user-friendly application, IDguard enables agencies to streamline file editing tasks and respond to FOIA requests quickly. IDguard can also reduce the time needed for the manual processes of uploading, storing, searching, editing and sharing video content. It includes the capability to upload multiple videos for overnight batch redaction processing. The interface includes a set of administrative tools to provide strict, secure, multi-user management with editing capabilities.

With support for all videos in the MP4 format including video from iPhones and Android devices, IDguard also offers configuration options with on-premise storage now, and cloud-based coming soon. Ingestion APIs allows for integration and communication with existing systems, including Panasonic i-PRO’s Unified Digital Evidence (UDE) solution.
