The CBSA puts a lot of effort into processing video recordings collected at ports of entry, in order to comply with Access to Information requests. For example, it is common for a person to ask for all video footage at a certain location that contains their image. In order to comply, the Agency has to review the available video from the location, and identify and extract all scenes containing the individual. In addition, before the video footage can be released, it needs to be redacted so that other individuals and objects in the scenes cannot be identified, in order to protect the privacy of others. Given that the audio and/or video processing is in support of an access to information request, the solution does not need to be at a forensic (i.e., court-ready) level.
