i-PRO unveils Edge-AI Compact Dome Cameras

Sept. 5, 2023
The new models offer wider scene coverage, vandal resistance, powerful edge-based AI analytics, and flexible deployment options for every budget.

Tokyo, Japan – September 5, 2023 – i-PRO Co. Ltd., a global leader in professional security solutions for surveillance and public safety, announced 24 new compact dome camera models. The new models offer wider scene coverage, vandal resistance, powerful edge-based AI analytics, and flexible deployment options for every budget.

Available in 2MP and 4MP resolutions, the efficient designs deliver the smallest compact domes and highest cyber security protection available. Small in size but big in capabilities, 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.

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° -- the widest in the industry. 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,” said Bill Brennan, President, i-PRO Americas. “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.”

X Series: Rugged, feature-rich design ideal for transit 

Built for use in challenging 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: A new standard for compact domes with built-in AI for wide applications

Like the X 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: High performance and exceptional value

i-PRO’s U Series cameras deliver exceptional value and image performance. 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.
