i-PRO Will Showcase Docker Container Support on X Series Line of Cameras at ISC West

At ISC West 2024 on booth # 10037, i-PRO Co., Ltd. (formerly Panasonic Security), a provider of professional security solutions for surveillance and public safety, will showcase Docker container support on its new X Series line of AI-enabled cameras. Docker containers directly support i-PRO’s open platform development initiatives by providing a standardized way for application developers to rapidly advance the AI capabilities of i-PRO edge devices.

Docker provides a secure, containerized environment to run custom applications while facilitating easy integration with cloud services. The environment offers a protective barrier, preventing direct access to the core operating functions of the camera, ensuring cybersecurity while allowing maximum flexibility.

“Thanks to Docker, third-party app providers can reduce development cycles and costs to develop customized AI apps,” said Hideo Noguchi, Chief Technical Officer, i-PRO. “Docker containers make tailored analytics development more accessible for everyone.”

Using Docker containers enables the modularization of different AI components. By encapsulating various functionalities within separate containers, it becomes easier to manage and maintain the overall system. Additionally, Docker allows for easy scaling of the AI components by running multiple instances of containers across distributed edge devices.

Building applications couldn’t be easier. For example, Microsoft’s Azure IoT Edge, allows developers to design intelligent apps in the cloud and deploy them directly to IoT devices using Docker containers. A Docker layer not only improves accessibility for traditional analytics providers but also extends the camera's utility as an IoT data collection point, enabling companies to associate video and AI metadata with additional digital transformation initiatives.

With support for up to nine AI applications, the X Series line is the most powerful AI camera to date from i-PRO. It is the first camera to support AI on-site learning while also providing powerful AI features to additional non-AI network cameras. AI on-site learning lets operators teach the camera about unique objects they wish to identify, search for, or track. For example, the camera might be taught to recognize a logo on a truck and send out an alert when it arrives at the loading dock. Likewise, it could count pallets being unloaded off a truck.

The AI processing relay application enables a single X Series camera to add AI metadata to up to three additional, non-AI cameras, even those from other manufacturers. This extends the useful life of network cameras that might be hard to reach and replace without causing significant interruption to operations. Processing multiple AI-based analytics on the edge reduces the need for expensive back-end servers and minimizes notification delays.

Visitors to ISC West will see how the X Series can run Docker applications. The team will run a demonstration using Docker container apps to illustrate possible applications.

  • A8V MIND

    A8V MIND

    Hexagon’s Geosystems presents a portable version of its Accur8vision detection system. A rugged all-in-one solution, the A8V MIND (Mobile Intrusion Detection) is designed to provide flexible protection of critical outdoor infrastructure and objects. Hexagon’s Accur8vision is a volumetric detection system that employs LiDAR technology to safeguard entire areas. Whenever it detects movement in a specified zone, it automatically differentiates a threat from a nonthreat, and immediately notifies security staff if necessary. Person detection is carried out within a radius of 80 meters from this device. Connected remotely via a portable computer device, it enables remote surveillance and does not depend on security staff patrolling the area. 3
