Face Blurring On Video Recordings / Exported Video - What Options Are Available?

GDPR compliancy and face / scene blurring questions are increasing because overall privacy concerns by end users, and new government regulations.

For US public schools, universities, hospitals there is going to be a need to view unblurred faces in hallways or cafeterias in a live setting, but once the video is recorded and needs to be exported, how do those places meet privacy regulations?

A common request I had as an integrator who worked work with K-12 school systems was the ability to blur faces on recorded video (to preserve the confidential information of the students not involved in whatever incident was being reviewed) so the video could be shown to a parent. The only option I was aware of for after-the-fact-blurring was exporting the video as an mp4 and then manually using a Final Cut/Adobe Premiere video editting software to create blurring. I don't think any schools ended up doing this (who has the time?), they just created policies denying access to the video, barring legal intervention, based on the confidential nature of the video.

What solutions have manufacturers or integrators come up with?
