I-Pro is set to showcase its newly released X Series camera line for the first time at ISC West, Las Vegas, Nv in April 2024.  Using AI onsite learning, the new X Series line enables users or integrators to teach the camera about specific objects they want to monitor. The revolutionary new camera line can also turn existing non-AI network cameras into AI smart devices.

“Our most powerful AI camera to date, the X Series represents another industry first for I-Pro,” said Hiroshi (Huey) Sekiguchi, CMO, I-Pro Co., Ltd. “More edge computing power means operators can further customise deployments by teaching the camera to recognize unique objects of interest. This demonstrates our unwavering commitment to lead data-driven forensic search and alert capabilities that enhance our customers’ operational efficiency.”

Extending the life of older cameras

Attendees will see live demos of an X Series camera performing sophisticated object detection while harvesting descriptive AI metadata from multiple non-AI cameras and providing this data to a VMS. Processing AI on the edge provides instant responses for mission-critical use cases where every second counts. The AI Processing Relay is a cost-effective solution that improves existing surveillance systems and further reduces false alarms. Today, there are millions of network cameras installed, some of which are located in difficult-to-access areas, that don’t have any AI features. While it’s possible to send all those streams to servers for external AI processing, it can be much cheaper, faster, and more secure to process some of those non-AI streams using existing AI cameras on the edge. Older network cameras with limited AI integration to popular VMSs like Milestone, Genetec, and Video Insight can now achieve complete parity utilising this function and I-Pro Active Guard software.

Advanced AI on-site learning

ISC West visitors will be able to see how AI on-site learning can teach the new cameras about custom objects they wish to identify and search for or track. For example, operators could teach the camera to recognise a logo on a truck and send out an alert when it arrives at the loading dock. A hospital could count ambulances arriving at the emergency room. An airport can track planes arriving at gates. These data-driven forensic search and alert capabilities, harvested directly utilising edge processing within X Series cameras, enable more automated workflows helping security teams to be more proactive rather than merely reactive.

“This is the most powerful AI camera ever manufactured by I-Pro. We’re using the latest Ambarella AI CV52 SoC to raise the bar in what a surveillance camera can do,” said Adam Lowenstein, Americas Product Director at I-Pro. “Our goal is to provide our customers with unlimited flexibility when deploying unique applications that better protect assets, people, and property.”

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 metres, image performance is unparalleled in all conditions. Designed and manufactured in Japan, the NDAA/TAA-compliant cameras support the highest level of cybersecurity with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification, secure boot, and Globalsign digital certificates.
