i-PRO Introduces Compact Dome Cameras With Edge-AI Ahead of GSX 2023

New models feature wider viewing angle, IR illumination, tough vandal resistance, built-in microphone, and advanced cybersecurity.

TOKYO, Japan – Global surveillance and public safety product manufacturer i-PRO, Co. Ltd., has announced 24 new compact dome camera models that “offer wider scene coverage, vandal resistance, powerful edge-based AI analytics and flexible deployment options for every budget.”

Available in 2MP and 4MP resolutions, i-PRO’s new cameras “deliver the smallest compact domes and highest cybersecurity protection available,” according to the company announcement. Both X and S series models support up to two AI analytic apps, providing the industry’s widest range of analytics.

As with all i-PRO cameras, the new line of compact domes is fully NDAA compliant, with TAA-compliant versions also available. i-PRO will show off some of its newest cameras at GSX 2023 in Dallas in booths 3555 and 4291.

The new line of compact domes extends the wide-angle lens to enable monitoring of a large area without blind spots, delivering a horizontal and vertical field of view up to 132°. Advanced video analysis with access to AI VMD (video motion detection) and i-PRO Active Guard capabilities ensure popular VMSs such as Genetec, Milestone, and i-PRO’s VMS Video Insight receive the AI-generated descriptive metadata needed for deep forensic search or real-time alerts.

Built-in IR extends low light performance, ensuring detailed image capture even in the dark. A built-in microphone supports sound recording and audio analytics.

“This new line of compact dome cameras is designed with versatility in mind,” says Bill Brennan, president, i-PRO Americas, in the company announcement. “Our goal is to offer a range of solutions at every price point with features to suit the unique requirements of any project.

“Customers are increasingly looking for less obtrusive camera designs and i-PRO has delivered the smallest domes without sacrificing advanced AI features and cybersecurity,” he says.

X Series

Built for use in transit environments like trains or buses, the X Series models are built to withstand vibrations and shock, ensuring the best quality video footage for accurate analytics. AI-based anonymous analytics such as occupancy detection and people counting are available for free to help better manage transit environments.

The cameras offer high frame rates (60fps) for smooth motion and superior low light performance (.02 LUX at 30IRE), to enable precise monitoring even in sudden light changes, as vehicles move between different lighting environments.

They offer rugged M12 connectors along with RJ45, IK10 vandal resistance, and IP66 rating for dust and water ingress protection. The X Series also features IEC standard compliance, with support for EN45545 and EN50155-TX.

S Series

The new S Series compact domes have the widest range of AI-based analytics available at an entry-level price. They support people and vehicle detection with attributes, scene change detection, sound analytics, occupancy detection, and AI Privacy Guard in addition to classic video motion detection analytics. They also offer IK10 vandal resistance and IP66 rating for dust and water ingress protection.

Providing the highest cybersecurity level in the market, both the X- and S-Series models utilize a secure element and comply with FIPS 140-2 level 3 for robust protection against unintended access.

U Series

For cost-sensitive projects that don’t require AI features, expanded angles of view, secure element cyber protection, or enhanced low-light performance, the new entry-level U Series compact dome is the thinnest model available. The outdoor models of the U Series are also IK10 vandal resistant and IP66 dust and water ingress protection certified.
