What are Credits?
Processing of video footage in GoodVision Video Insights proceeds based on a virtual currency called Credits. One Credit equals the extraction of traffic data from up to 1 hour long videos from fixed cameras. For example, 5 Credits would be charged for 5 hours long video that is sent for processing to GoodVision platform. In the case of Drone video processing, you'll need 1 Credit for every 15 minutes of video data extraction.

Credits are utilized to process traffic video footage in the Video Insights platform. The system verifies the length of the video and, based on the selected processing option, subtracts the corresponding number of credits from your account at the moment of video upload. In case the system is not able to process your video, you will be notified and Credits will be refunded back to your account automatically.
