Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions Corp. of America, formerly Panasonic Security Group in the U.S. and now branded as i-PRO, has launched its series of surveillance cameras with artificial intelligence (AI) engines. The i-PRO X-Series enable analytical applications on the network edge, further optimizing performance, system bandwidth and storage requirements.
The i-PRO X-Series employs an AI engine with on-board analytics to detect suspicious changes in scenes, automatically adjust image settings of the scene being analyzed, and optimize video compression to conserve network bandwidth and server storage capacities. The cameras can install up to three video analytics applications, including Intrusion Detection, capable of detecting any human, vehicle, two-wheel motorcycle or bicycle and Privacy Masking to detect and recognize human figures in a video scene and pixelate their figures or faces for privacy protection. A software development kit (SDK) is also available for third parties to develop compatible software.
The i-PRO Extreme X-Series includes six models with 5MP or 4K resolutions in indoor and outdoor vandal-resistant dome or box configurations. Additionally, the cameras are bundled with i-PRO Video Insight 7.7 VMS software and feature a five-year warranty.
