Sighthound Redactor is an application for the redaction of sensitive information in videos and images. It contains state of the art computer vision algorithms for face detection and object tracking to greatly reduce the amount of operator interaction required to complete redaction tasks.

System Requirements

  • OS: Windows or Linux
  • CPU: Intel i7, i9, or Xeon (9th generation or newer) or comparable AMD
  • RAM: 16GB+
  • HD: any (SSD recommended) with sufficient capacity to store your videos
  • GPU: (optional, but highly recommended) NVIDIA GPU w/ 4GB+ RAM and Compute Capability >= 3.5
  • Browser: Recent version of Chrome, Firefox, or Edge. Safari is not supported.

The application has been optimized to efficiently scale in a multicore environment. For best performance, particularly when working with long videos, a 16+ core system and a gig of memory per core is recommended.

We might recommend certain upgrades if there are concurrent users or for certain workflow considerations. Please reach out to one of our experts at support@sighthound.com for guidance.
