i-PRO has announced a new line of cameras that reportedly 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.
An aspect of the X Series camera is its ability to enhance traditional cameras with AI capabilities. This feature allows customers to add AI capabilities to their existing, non-AI, surveillance cameras, including cameras from other manufacturers. This cost-effective solution improves existing systems and further reduces false alarms. Cameras with limited AI integration to VMSs like Milestone and Genetec can now achieve complete parity utilising this function and i-PRO Active Guard software.
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.
i-PRO is utilising 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 optimising their operational efficiency and reducing the burden of routine monitoring.
The NDAA compliant 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, Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) of up to 144dB and IR illumination to 70 metres.
