Ethical AI CCTV surveillance and data privacy

UK National CCTV Strategy maintaining CCTV PrivacyPatented step change in CCTV surveillance privacy

Stronger CCTV security, deeper surveillance and investigations. But with no CCTV privacy concerns. Ethical AI Deep Learning Neural Networks


Viseum’s CCTV security and surveillance is the patented step change addressing the public’s major concern of CCTV privacy. This patent solves the many problems with standalone CCTV security systems, manned surveillance services and manned guarding security patrols. This is why the UK’s National CCTV Strategy Board recommended the use of Viseum cameras in their latest National CCTV Strategy Report.

CCTV Privacy – A CCTV operator targets people for the way they look. Viseum’s camera automation targets people because of their location and behaviour. This is related to the surroundings. Also, only the video of related faces and activity can be accessible. There are 2 typical modes of operation for accessing video data using Viseum® Community SafetyWatch® privacy protocols:

1. Standalone CCTV Security (post-incident)

All video is encrypted using constantly changing algorithms, making it impossible for any unauthorised person to see. The video decryption will only function with a verified police crime number. Also, only within that time period. The decryption key can then shared amongst 3 people. Making it impossible for the video to be seen without their knowledge.

2. Proactive Surveillance (live response)

Viseum cameras are instructed to automatically detect and report certain types of confirmed incidents as they happen. For example; knife crime, potential suspects, confirmed intruders, unauthorised vehicles entering and/or leaving the site, criminal damage, loitering, vehicle theft, public disorder and graffiti.

CCTV Privacy Activists

Having a camera pointing at you naturally causes privacy issues. So, if local authorities implement standard CCTV there are always privacy concerns within the community. Viseum has lots of experience in these situations. When Viseum cameras are deployed by local authorities. On occasions, communities create privacy activist groups. They contact Viseum to find out how Viseum cameras invade their privacy. They are happily surprised to learn how the cameras are automated and have such strict privacy protocols. This eliminates privacy concerns. Communities see Viseum® Community SafetyWatch® as a way to improve their security. And also prevent local authorities from implementing standard CCTV and snooping on them.

Example of Ethical AI Camera:

The PTZ Camera industry-standard deterrent and fully automated security and surveillance

Outdoor PTZ Camera

World’s Best Outdoor PTZ Camera

This PTZ Camera is a multitasking camera with many Video Analytics Software systems operating together for several applications. Installed, maintained and supported as plug-and-play with modular hardware configuration, meeting any remote site’s security coverage and surveillance requirements. Solving the many problems with standalone security systems, manned surveillance services and manned guarding security patrols. It has been independently endorsed that to provide the same CCTV coverage as just 1 Viseum 360 Security Camera, it would take:


  • 6 constantly manned next best PTZ cameras, or,
  • 10 of the industry’s latest panoramic megapixel cameras, or,
  • 200 standard fixed camera installations.

This does not take into account the extreme costs of installation and monitoring. Viseum will deliver more results automatically costing significantly less capex and 6 x less opex each year.


Privacy Tests

This police training used 6 Viseum IMC Cameras and Viseum’s Global F3™ Software Technology Services. It compiled information on ½ million people in just 1 day, but no human had access to any of the video or data of the public. Data and video were displayed of test subjects randomly merged into the crowds at each camera site. They were automatically identified and followed:

Viseum Camera Technology with CCTV Privacy

  • Operates 24/7/365 completely automatically. It can zoom into and follows multiple incidents at the same time. Unlike a CCTV operator, being the most expensive ongoing operational cost for remote site security. The CCTV operator is unreliable, failing to turn up for work and lacking concentration.
  • Consistently watches a complete 360° of activity everywhere in line-of-sight at the same time. Unlike a CCTV operator who can only see just the 1 narrow view.
