It can be difficult and time-consuming to maintain personal security and privacy while participating on-line video experiences. Many modifications can be provided post-production but this is unrealistic in the real-time world in which video/camera systems are often utilized. Presented herein is a technique for using a Quick Response (QR) code or other similar encoding mechanism within the field of view of a video/camera solution as a means to provide real-time/in-stream configuration of privacy and security zones. The encoding mechanism would contain all information necessary to define these zones. Once detected within the field of view, these zones would remain in effect until actively disabled.
