The AI-fication of security cameras

by Geny Caloisi

Deep learning technology can help future proof legacy in the CCTV environment. Cameras with embedded AI engines capable of deep learning analysis are much more powerful and deliver better results than standard CCTV solutions.

Safety requirements are ever-evolving. Combining cameras with inbuilt processing power and a software development kit (SDK) makes more flexibility readily available. The client’s evolving needs can be rapidly addressed, and tailored solutions can be offered following business requirements.

The need for flexible and intelligent security infrastructure is in constant evolution as businesses seek technology deployment to make their operations secure and more efficient. The amount of CCTV data generated can not be only handled by human capacities anymore, so we have to rely partially on technology and analyse security footage on an evidence basis. 

i-PRO network camera range with AI capabilities offers advanced analysis technology and secure technology using deep learning applications. 

Video captured by a dedicated AI-featured i-PRO network camera provides high-accuracy detection, identification and determination. The AI engine is capable of processing information instantly and also reducing the number of false alarm detection.

To extend the capabilities of legacy security installations, the newly launch i-PRO EMEA company,  recently announced the launch of its i-PRO multi-AI system, developed thanks to Panasonic’s heritage for more than 60 years. This system has been designed to harness the power of its latest AI cameras and applications, it integrates into existing CCTV infrastructures.

The i-PRO multi-AI system plug-in software allows users to manage the AI analytics from multiple i-PRO cameras, alongside their Video Management System. It creates a faster, more efficient and accurate AI-powered security solution without compromising image quality or network performance.

i-PRO Camera Application Platform is a program where applications developed by application partners can be installed and used with Panasonic’s network cameras (SDK available on request).

Data at the Edge

Being able to ingest and analyse vast quantities of data rapidly is critical, but the capacity of current computing systems is limited. That’s where we have to venture into the Edge.

Edge processing, which executes AI processing with high loads within a camera, such as a video analysis that was difficult with conventional network cameras, can reduce the load on the system and the server and structure operate a high-efficiency system.

i-PRO Multi-AI System, paired with the latest i-PRO S and X Series of AI capable cameras, creates a new AI-driven security ecosystem able to reply to every business needs.

“The introduction of i-PRO Multi-AI System, alongside our AI capable cameras and applications, has created a powerful new AI-driven security ecosystem. It allows businesses to take their CCTV infrastructure to the next level,” said Gerard Figols, i-President at i-PRO EMEA B.V. “And because these systems are already compatible for use with market-leading 3rd party VMS providers like Genetec, it is cost-efficient and simple to move to the AI-fication of the security market.”

The system uses i-PRO AI-capable cameras with edge analytics and plug-ins on the Video Management System (VMS) server and client-side. 

The i-PRO Multi-AI System captures and filters the Best Shot images and metadata based on deep learning from the AI camera to enable highly accurate analysis. Data gathered is used for AI-based detection and alarms, watch-list monitoring, and time-saving post-event searches to enhance the CCTV infrastructure’s capabilities.

The emergence of deep learning-enabled solutions allows the collection and analysis of a large quantity of data that we were unable to handle up to now. 

With the deep learning applications running directly on the cameras themselves, the need for additional servers for analytical calculations is reduced whilst maintaining the same high levels of accuracy.

The benefits include:
  • Lower total cost of ownership of security infrastructure.
  • Faster processing and more immediate alarms.
  •  Notifications or information from the applications.
