Audio Redaction & Masking, The Basics…

Redaction involves obscuring identifiable information within individual audio clips. These can be part of a combined audio/video clip or can be on their own.

Audio information that needs specifically removing is often names and addresses, or if a witness during interview refers to another case.

With call centre recordings, the Subject Access Request only actually dictates that an individual is entitled to their own data so we often remove the entire other half of the conversation. Complying with Data Protection law, whilst completely protecting staff.

Audio Redaction Services
Redacting the data can be done with three types of tool to remove voices from CCTV or other video. The redaction can be a mute, which simply turns off the sound when required, we can also use a beep to go over voices that you need to hide on video, which (although a little annoying) shows clearly where the voices have been covered, avoiding any claims of ‘editing’ or covering up.

We can also remove voices from clips by applying a ‘garble’ filter, which disguises the voice on the video, but still allows the listener to hear what is being said. This is the same process that you see on the news where they hide the identity of voices for spies, informants or the vulnerable.

We use Forensic software to ensure the privacy of the obscured footage and prevent manipulation that could reveal the identity or content that has been redacted.
