The technological revolution has led to all media attaining digital forms. Today, we have videos, documents, audio, imagery and more stored digitally on systems across the world. In many cases, the data of these mediums is confidential or private. It can carry critical information such as PII data or other highly confidential information. Hence, the need for redaction of the data in these mediums was born and quickly turned into a necessity.
Redaction For Different Mediums
For each data medium, redaction works in a separate way. Document redaction involves masking text data and is an entirely different process compared to other forms of digital media.
Images work with a layer for masking elements in the static image. Videos are the same, but moving elements need to be redacted for each individual process, thus making the process of video redaction a lot more complex.
Audio redaction works with segments containing the data being redacted to be either muted or overridden with a bleep noise.
Different Tools For Different Mediums?
In the market today, there exist several different tools for the redaction of different mediums. Document redaction being a rather different domain, has its own set of dedicated tools for PDF files and other document formats. There are also tools where audio files can be tweaked for redaction. Image redaction can be done via image editing tools. Similarly, video can be redacted in video editing software or dedicated tools.
But do we need all these separate tools?
Why not opt for a tool that allows us to perform redaction for a multitude of data mediums? Instead of going through the hassle of working with multiple tools and meeting their requirements on the system and otherwise, why not opt for a single solution?
