I-Pro becomes independent from Panasonic

Birmingham, West Midlands (UK)

I-Pro EMEA has used The Security Event in Birmingham, one of Europe’s first large-scale security events, to share news about the newly founded independent company that has been transferred from Panasonic.

Gerard Figols will be leading the security market expansion of the new company, as it becomes an independent organisation from Panasonic on 1st October, 2021. Gerard, who moves from heading Panasonic’s European Total Security business unit, will use the company’s new agility to quickly respond to market developments - delivering more high quality products, in shorter development times, at good value for money. The objective is to make innovative I-Pro products more available and accessible, and increase overall competitiveness.

Aligned with these goals, I-Pro EMEA also aims to lead the AI-ification of the security camera market by making AI the new standard. At The Security Event, I-Pro has expanded its line-up with 4 new AI-capable outdoor models with 2MP resolution in bullet and dome shape. The current AI-capable portfolio includes cameras starting at 2MP resolution up to 4K in order to give all businesses access to the advantages of AI.

I-Pro plans to triple the number of cameras in the range over the next 6-12 months. Besides the advantages of cost savings, system reliability and flexibility at the same level of accuracy as server-based systems, I-Pro AI-driven cameras are open systems enabling any developers to work on their own apps to run on the cameras.

“In order to underline our new direction and the evolution the company is going through, combining expertise of more than 60 years of industry know-how with innovative open technology like AI, we will also begin to use I-Pro as the standalone product identity from April 1st, 2022. It will be the same quality products, introducing additional innovation from the I-Pro brand and its value to bring the product to the next stage in this new era,” said Gerard Figols, currently Head of Panasonic’s European Total Security business unit.
