    Not a feature that any client of ours has requested, however I can definitely see the use of it for some- especially the schools we look after. Certainly would be a feature we'd emphise when competing against others.

    I assume the pixelation is applied retrospectively? Not at the time of recording?

    Personally it is a great idea due to GDPR requirements that have been introduced recently.

    Perhaps make it available as an export filter?

    Not for all projects but definitely there is a demand for this feature.  However, it would be great to know the details. Can we export the video with pixelation? What will be the effect on the server CPU? ,etc

    This looks very nice. And it would help a lot in large projects.
    I also like the idea mentioned to make pixeleration an option upon export.
    In exported -nov files I guess it would still be possible to turn it off / on from the client.
    In a single .avi / .mkv it would be good to choose to have it permanently pixelerated or not.

    To make this feature really powerfull I hope that you implement it together with a privacy masking function.
    So that you can draw polygon shapes in the image and choose to mask them completely, or pixelerate that part of the video.

    Looks nice, it's need to be on user level as only somebody with privileges can export without and/or turn this on/off.

    In Europe with the GDPR, this would stand out in a multitude of other VMS's.

     

    I only know of one other VMS that does this limited only to exported recordings where you can manually make the necessary alterations.

    They provide you with the tool, but is still cumbersome.

    I know VIVOTEK and Mobotix have hinted at something like this for their streams, but nothing on the Horizon.

     

    For NxWitness, if you could have the option of this for the Live/View and also the option to enabled it for exported recordings, would be pretty big.

    I have no idea if it would be possible but I will just throw an idea "out there":

    It would be really interesting if when you are exporting, you could select an area of the exported recordings where the masks are disabled.

    Example: I know that phone was stolen, so when I export the recordings I want that specific area around the phone to be a no-pixelation area...
