Face Blur Technology

What is face blur?

Face Blur is a real-time video anonymizer. It is designed with privacy in mind. You can now easily blur faces to protect the privacy of all people recorded in video systems or in images.

Based on the input we received from our customers and partners, together with our own strong values when it comes to respecting individuals’ privacy, we have decided to add the face blur feature in all of our products.

Privacy by default

Start applying privacy by default today with our face blurring solutions. You can still perform all face analysis tasks with the additional capability to prevent others from being able to view video streams or see people’s faces.

Face Blurring is ideal for many different industries that have cameras running for security or analytics purposes and need to provide access to the video streams or share the output with third parties.

How does face blur work?

For the Face Blur feature to take effect, first, a face (or faces) needs to be detected in a video stream or in a still image(s). Once a face has been detected, similar to how your phone detects your face with a yellow bounding box when taking a selfie, we can then add a layer that blurs or pixelates the detected face(s). This happens in such a way that the person’s face can no longer be seen by the human eye. Our face detector is very strong and can detect faces from any angle and distance.

With privacy regulations changing all the time around the globe and the recent GDPR that came into effect in the EU, it is recommended to comply with all regulations per default by adding/ integrating face blurring into your services.
