Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions has unveiled the new i-PRO S-series line of network cameras. The i-PRO S-series offers the AI processing found in the company’s premium products in a mid-range line of cameras. It comes with a built-in AI processor that transforms the camera into an edge-computing device to improve surveillance operations, and it also offers the ability to select and install third-party applications without a cloud- or server-based connection.
The i-PRO S-series is currently available in three models, indoor dome, indoor vandal dome and indoor box. S-series cameras provide H.265 coding efficiency to conserve network bandwidth and server storage capacities while the image processing optimisation allows them to adapt to changing environments. Another addition is sound classification, which allows users to set alarms for targeted sounds, such as gunshots, yelling, vehicle horns and glass breaking, using an external mic. The S-series is compatible with i-PRO’s multi AI system, a search function that quickly finds people or vehicles through the video management software, Video Insight and Genetec.
“This new line allows everyone the opportunity to experience the power of edge-computing technology,” said Bill Brennan, President, Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions Corp. of America. “At i-PRO, we believe that security is the top priority and offering premium features in our mid-range line of cameras allows more access to the technology that helps create a safer world.”
