Redaction Studio provides the ability to redact what can be seen and heard in evidence files. The tools enable you to create redacted versions of evidence files without affecting the original file. You can create and maintain multiple redactions for an evidence file. This enables you to create different redacted videos for different audiences or different purposes.
Redaction Assistant is an add-on to the standard Axon Redaction Studio functionality that speeds up your redaction process by checking videos for common objects and automatically adding mask segments to those objects. See Using Redaction Assistant for more information.
Redaction Studio includes options for frame-by-frame manual redaction, Spray Paint redaction (manual redaction during playback), object-tracking redaction, and audio redaction. These options can be used separately or together.
With the new real-time object-tracking redaction, users can add object-tracker masks to a video and immediately playback the video to view the results of the tracker redaction, while the system is processing the results. If the object-tracker mask does not follow or cover the intended subject during playback, the user can stop the video and re-position the mask, which will reprocess the redaction from that point forward, enhancing the object-tracker mask accuracy. This allows the user to redact while simultaneously playing back the video.
Redaction Studio is supported on Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1+ platforms, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari browsers.
