Benefits of Redact
Public Justice AgenciesStay in compliance with court procedures and preserve the integrity of your cases by swiftly redacting personally identifiable information (PII) of individuals in audio, video and image-based evidence to meet timely court filing deadlines.
Public Safety AgenciesWhether a public information request or police consent decree, agencies are often required to distribute evidence outside the investigative team. Prior to evidence release, sensitive information is required to be redacted to protect the identity of innocent individuals and preserve investigations. With Veritone Redact, you can quickly redact sensitive items within audio, video and image-based evidence and improve the speed and efficiency of which your agency can respond.
Expedite Audio, Video and Image-Based Evidence Redaction
The high cost and resource commitment of redacting sensitive information from media evidence is taking its toll on public safety agencies. Yet doing so is required to keep witnesses safe and comply with freedom of information laws and consent decrees.
Veritone Redact systematically detects human heads and allows users to define other sensitive imagery and objects within a scene, then automatically redacts this information from your audio, video and image-based evidence. From there, the redacted evidence can quickly be downloaded with logs to support chain of custody requirements and share it with colleagues.
Accelerate Evidence Redaction Workflows
Developed for public safety and justice agencies, cloud-based Veritone Redact automates the process of obscuring sensitive imagery or audio in media evidence, significantly improving manual and time-intensive, frame-by-frame and word-by-word evidence redaction workflows.
With automated head detection and automatic tracking of manually selected sensitive imagery, you can use Veritone Redact to quickly tackle massive volumes of video content at incredible speed and efficiency. Additionally, you can also search for keywords and phrases captured within the recorded audio and quickly redact those items too.
Automatically detect heads, license plates, and laptops (MDTs) within your video and image-based evidence, with results displayed chronologically in a preview pane as well as within the video player itself.
Define & Live Track
Select user-defined objects such as ID cards, officer notebooks or any other PII within your video evidence, then optionally track the item forward in the video. What’s more, with live tracking, define a zone then manually follow that item with your cursor during video playback for subsequent redaction.
Redact detected heads, user-defined objects and even spoken words and phrases within video evidence automatically with one-click. Additional redactions can always be performed if additional personally identifiable information (PII) was missed.
Capture comprehensive reporting of all actions taken against redacted video or audio evidence to support your compliance with chain of custody requirements.
Download your redacted video or audio files and all actions taken as audit logs with a click of a button to your local computer.
Manage your digital evidence redaction workloads by tagging audio or video evidence with its status in the approval workflow for easy project tracking among your team.
Quickly locate words or phrases spoken by individuals in audio evidence, such as interview room recordings, 911 calls and audio from body cams or in-car video systems via keyword search. All audio redaction is transcript-based providing additional visual support and allowing for highest accuracy.
