i-PRO mini camera

i-PRO Co., Ltd. has launched its new i-PRO mini network camera, a pocket-sized device operating with AI analytics.

The company claims the mini camera can run up to three simultaneous AI analytic applications. The device uses AI-based object detection to for surveillance and helps to reduce false positives and delivers operations and marketing intelligence.

The AI-based analytics include people and vehicle detection with attribute extraction such as colour, upper/lower garment, face detection, and non-mask detection. The camera also supports occupancy monitoring/counting, and a privacy guard feature that pixelates individual faces or entire the body to maintain GDPR compliance.

“The i-PRO mini is disrupting the traditional compact camera segment by combining sleek, unobtrusive design with powerful AI analytics. Business owners can easily leverage their surveillance footage to unlock valuable marketing analysis to gain shopper insights,” said Adam Lowenstein, director of product management at i-PRO Americas Inc. in a statement.

“i-PRO mini is truly leading the next generation of security surveillance in retail by offering a powerful and comprehensive AI-based smart camera in the smallest package in our industry.”

At 4” wide, 1.89” high and only 0.82” deep, the i-PRO mini is only the “height of a credit card” according to the company’s announcement.  i-PRO says the mini camera was designed specifically for applications where a camera with AI analytics is needed but should not stand out.

The i-PRO mini contains an inbuilt microphone which enables additional sound classification analytics such as glass break detection. It also supports third party application plugins that can perform tasks such as monitoring inventory status on product shelves.

“i-PRO is leading the industry in providing solutions that require powerful, discreet edge computing hardware, with no need to compromise between camera size, performance and next generation business insights,” said Lowenstein in a statement.
