Panasonic introduces AI-enabled security cameras for regional market
New range of indoor and outdoor cameras designed to support safe cities through monitoring fast-changing environments from shopping malls, parks and museums
Panasonic Marketing Middle East & Africa (PMMAF) is meeting the increasing surveillance demands from the regional government and private organisations with the release of a new range of AI-enabled i-PRO S-Series indoor and outdoor security cameras. i-PRO S-Series is specifically designed to support safe cities initiatives, allowing for monitoring fast-changing environments from shopping malls and parks to airports and railway stations.
The versatile Full HD and HD security cameras with up to 40x zoom are the latest offerings in Panasonic’s nextgeneration i-PRO Extreme surveillance technology platform. This native end-toend H.265 system is designed to maximise the performance and cost-effectiveness of video surveillance systems whilst protecting against cybersecurity threats.
“AI empowered devices are being sought after, especially within the physical security industry in the region. At Panasonic, we understand the demands of the region and these new security cameras will not only help provide robust security solutions but offer deeper data analytics as well, so that decision and preventive measures can be more effectively implemented,” commented Hidetoshi Kaneko – director, System Solutions & Communications Division, PMMAF.
The cameras use H.265 compression technology coupled with Panasonic’s Smart Coding technology to deliver the highest quality images at the lowest bitrates – reducing streaming and storage by approximately 75% over the H.264 industry standard. This allows companies to store more data at a lower cost and reduce bandwidth requirements. i-PRO Extreme cameras also provide a highly secure protection layer and robust authentication to guard against hacking.
Moreover, the cameras come prebundled with the i-PRO in-house apps AI Video Motion Detection (AI-VMD) and AI Privacy Guard.
