i-PRO announced a new line of cameras that the company says turn non-AI network cameras into AI smart devices.

Using AI onsite learning, the new X Series enables users to teach the camera about specific objects they want to monitor. With support for up to nine AI applications, i-PRO says it is the most powerful AI camera it has released to date.

“The X Series cameras demonstrate our commitment to setting new standards of innovation that are helping to shape the future of our industry,” said Masato Nakao, CEO, i-PRO, in a statement. “We take immense pride in the accomplishments of our product and engineering teams as they bring this ground-breaking technology to market.”

An aspect of the X Series is its ability to enhance traditional cameras with AI capabilities. The AI Processing Relay is a feature that allows customers to add AI capabilities to their existing, non-AI, surveillance cameras, including cameras from other manufacturers.

The new on-site AI learning feature lets customers teach the camera about custom objects they wish to identify and search for or track. For example, operators could teach the camera to count forklifts passing through the camera’s field of view or teach it to recognize a logo on a truck and send out an alert when it arrives at the loading dock.

“The new i-PRO X Series represents a groundbreaking leap forward in AI-enhanced surveillance. With the AI Processing Relay app, we’re not just introducing a product, we’re transforming the industry by making older network cameras smarter,” said Norio Hitsuishi, Chief Product Officer, i-PRO. “By utilizing the latest Ambarella chip and introducing AI on-site learning, the possibilities are infinite. We now believe this is the most powerful AI camera in the security market.”

The new X Series includes 16 new camera models including eight bullet cameras, four interior domes, and four exterior domes with 2, 5, and 6MP options plus 4K models.
