In compliance with data protection of the national law, CCTV manager is obliged to consider getting his CCTV footage masked for data protection reason with obscuring third parties or sensitive material on requested CCTV footage to prevent individual’s private life.


Technology’s Background  

Our face recognition technology is based on biometrics technology searching characteristics of several faces and action by one camera in real-time, tracking and matching to identify the objective person and application of masking for protecting of private life is available. And this technology can be realized by the camera even in notebook or smart phone with no special hardware module. It is more based on software and algorithm rather than installing additional component. Especially no physical additional cost is required because it can be linked with existing security system and payment system.

facial recognition object tracking for privacy cctv


  • ◎ Encoding face image information which client needs by real-time masking in server and transmitting to server
  • ◎ Computing average value and variance of each pixel of 300 frames
  • ◎Building background model by Gaussian distribution probability
  • ◎Detecting head, tracking and masking
  • ◎ Detecting and analyzing face, head and side view in blob zone by using background model
  • ◎ Changing scale and multi-tracking of dace and head by using distance conversion image
  • ◎ Applying mosaic/masking for detecting and tracking zone
