At ISC West i-PRO Will Introduce WV-X86531-Z2 +PTZ Camera
The new WV-X86531-Z2 +PTZ camera from i-PRO weighs just over 8 pounds and it is designed to blend unobtrusively into a range of environments.
TOKYO—At ISC West 2023 in booth # 10037 i-PRO Co. Ltd., a global manufacturer of professional security solutions for surveillance and public safety, will expand its multi-sensor line with a new multi-directional + PTZ camera: the WV-X86531-Z2 .
i-PRO boasts the WV-X86531-Z2 is the smallest and lightest outdoor rated multi-PTZ of its kind in the industry. The company says that its latest product features edge AI capabilities, advanced cybersecurity, and vandal resistance for the widest possible deployment options.
“Multi-directional plus PTZ cameras are not new to the market, but i-PRO set out to make one that was more suitable to deployment in a variety of beneficial situations,” says Bill Brennan, president, i-PRO Americas.
“We believe we’ve created the smallest, lightest, outdoor and vandal proof option on the market. The fact that it’s also packed with AI-enabled analytics, makes it the best camera of its type we’ve ever seen.”
According to the global company, for high-quality, efficient coverage of wide areas, nothing beats a multi-sensor camera. When integrated with a powerful PTZ camera, security operators have the best of both worlds. i-PRO says that traditional multi-sensor + PTZ cameras tend to be heavy and bulky which has relegated their deployments to exterior, elevated mounting positions. The new outdoor-rated and vandal-proof WV-X86531-Z2 camera is nearly half the weight of competing multi-directional PTZ cameras to help provide integrators with an unobtrusive camera solution. At only 8.4 lbs and 9.8 x 7.5 inches the PTZ camera offers property owners a smaller solution that permits lower mounting heights and improved viewings angles for better AI performance.
The camera supports up to four 5MP multi-sensors in addition to the 2MP PTZ sensor. Each multi-sensor has a 3.2mm focal length and a 97-degree field of view supporting up to 360-degrees of panoramic coverage. The camera’s built-in auto-tracking, as well as a 21x optical zoom and 4.0 to 84.6mm focal length.
iPRO also notes the camera is completely integrated so there’s no need for double assembly, and no calibration is required between the multi-sensor cameras and PTZ camera to set the angle of view.
i-PRO WV-X86531-Z2 Features AI Analytics and Auto-tracking
The WV-X86531-Z2 is said to be the only multi-directional + PTZ camera currently available with AI edge-based analytics, supporting four unique applications on the multi-sensor array and two unique applications on the PTZ for high accuracy notifications and forensic search. The camera comes pre-installed with a robust set of free AI-assisted analytics. AI-based object recognition enables a seamless hand-off from the multi-directional lenses to the PTZ while AI auto-tracking ensures the PTZ doesn’t lose lock on the subject. Operators can also interact with the camera by simply dragging a box around any object in the multi-sensor image to automatically move the PTZ camera to that position for a closer, auto-tracked look.
Some of the other features the new multi-sensor camera provides includes the ability to support a minimum illumination of .12 lux while the PTZ camera supports illumination down to .011 lux. This enables the camera to deliver color images in the lowest light environments.
Moreover, the WV-X86531-Z2 contains a secure element which complies with the FIPS 140-2 level 3 standard for cybersecurity resiliency. It also comes with a digital certificate issued by GlobalSign. The camera is IP66, IP67 and IK10 rated allowing it to be mounted in a variety of indoor or outdoor areas for complete flexibility without fear of damage from the environment or vandals.
i-PRO explains the WV-X86531-Z2 requires only one LAN cable (with PoE++ power) and just two VMS licenses. The company emphasizes its low weight and hook-structure mounting system saves installers time by allowing the camera body to be easily suspended and snapped into place. For increased versatility and discreet use indoors, accessories can provide an embedded ceiling mount that takes a significant portion of camera into the ceiling, decreasing the height by around 30%.
The company adds that it offers the product in a choice of either black or white. The WV-X86531-Z2 model includes four multi-sensors while the WV-X86530-Z2 contains three. All i-PRO multi-directional models are NDAA and TAA compliant.
