Technology Scrambles People on Video Feeds

June 5, 2006

scrambler.jpgEMITALL Surveillance in Montreux, Switzerland has developed a surveillance system that automatically scrambles people on the feed to protect them from unwarranted monitoring. The system can be implemented on top of a normal video surveillance feed, and it uses a particular algorithm to scramble the people on the video feed, so only authorities in possession of the encryption key can identify the people on-screen. This system even uses different keys to scramble different people's identities, so authorities can reveal the identity of certain individuals on the feed while leaving the other bystanders anonymous. If only this technology was pocketable, so you could easily scramble yourself on any security feed. Maybe then they would finally let me back into the Victoria's Secret.
