In order to redact videos, you must first configure how you would want sensitive imagery to be redacted. To do that, set the following redaction properties: the type of redaction filter, the filter strength, the type of area, and the audio redaction type.

NOTE: Changing Redaction Properties

Evidence Manager uses the values you set for the redaction properties to redact videos. However, you can change a few of these properties at the time of redaction as well.


To set redaction properties:

  1. Log in to Evidence Manager.
  2. Go to Tools > Settings.
  3. On the Settings window that appears, click the Redaction tab.
  1. Under Filter Type, choose the type of filter: Blackout, Blur, or Pixelation. This selection determines how elements are redacted. For example, if you select Blur, the elements will be blurred.
  2. Move the Filter Strength slider to adjust the intensity of redaction.
  3. Under Default Bounding Box Shape, select either: Oval or Rectangle. This selection determines the shape of the redaction filter.
  4. Under Default Audio Redaction Type, select either: Silent or Beep. This section determines how the audio is redacted. For example, if you select Silent, the portions of audio you wish to redact are silenced.
  5. Click OK.
