i-PRO Announces New AI On-site Learning Camera Line that Adds AI to Non-AI Cameras
<P>i-PRO Co. Ltd., a provider of professional security solutions for surveillance and public safety, today announced a revolutionary new line of cameras that turn non-AI network cameras into AI smart devices. Using AI onsite learning, the new X Series enables users to teach the camera about specific objects they want to monitor. With support for up to nine AI applications, it is the most powerful AI camera to date from i-PRO.
<P>“The X Series cameras demonstrate our commitment to setting new standards of innovation that are helping to shape the future of our industry,” said Masato Nakao, CEO, i-PRO Co., Ltd. “We take immense pride in the accomplishments of our product and engineering teams as they bring this ground-breaking technology to market.”
<P>A unique aspect of the X Series camera is its ability to significantly enhance traditional cameras with AI capabilities. The AI Processing Relay is an innovative feature that allows customers to add AI capabilities to their existing, non-AI, surveillance cameras, including cameras from other manufacturers, making them smarter and more efficient. This cost-effective solution improves existing surveillance systems and further reduces false alarms. Cameras with limited AI integration to popular VMSs like Milestone and Genetec can now achieve complete parity utilizing this function and i-PRO Active Guard software.
<P>The new on-site AI learning feature lets customers teach the camera about custom objects they wish to identify and search for or track. For example, operators could teach the camera to count forklifts passing through the camera’s field of view to provide new metrics about operational efficiency. A hospital could count ambulances arriving at the emergency room. The camera can even be taught to recognize a logo on a truck and send out an alert when it arrives at the loading dock. The AI On-site Learning app can even auto-generate multiple training images at different luminance values saving operators valuable time while increasing detection accuracy.
<P>“The new i-PRO X Series represents a groundbreaking leap forward in AI-enhanced surveillance. With the AI Processing Relay app, we're not just introducing a product, we're transforming the industry by making older network cameras smarter,” said Norio Hitsuishi, Chief Product Officer, i-PRO Co., Ltd. “By utilizing the latest Ambarella chip and introducing AI on-site learning, the possibilities are infinite. We now believe this is the most powerful AI camera in the security market.”
<P>i-PRO is utilizing the latest Ambarella AI SoC (CV52) to provide security professionals with all the benefits that edge AI cameras can offer to better protect assets, people, and property while optimizing their operational efficiency and reducing the burden of routine monitoring.
<P>The new X Series includes 16 new camera models including eight bullet cameras, four interior domes, and four exterior domes with 2, 5, and 6MP options plus 4K models. With Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) of up to 144dB and IR illumination to 70 meters, image performance is unparalleled in all conditions. Designed and manufactured in Japan, the NDAA compliant cameras support the highest level of cybersecurity with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification, secure boot, and GlobalSign digital certificates.
