Attendees will be able to experience live, in-depth demos of i-PRO’s industry-leading Active Guard AI-powered analytics working on popular VMS platforms such as Genetec, Milestone, and Video Insight. The i-PRO Active Guard plug-in enables a more proactive security stance by combining deep learning technology and i-PRO imaging expertise to search or notify in real time using a variety of external attributes.
i-PRO shared its top five predictions for the physical security industry in 2023. 2023 will see significant adoption of AI-based analytics in cameras and video management systems (VMS) as more manufacturers provide this feature within their standard camera lines. There are simply too many camera streams for humans to monitor effectively, so AI-based analytics will be a catalyst that enables security departments to do more with less. This evolution will drive a significant shift in stance for physical security by enabling organizations to become more proactive in response to real-time events instead of reacting to past events. In 2023 focus will shift from capturing video to gathering data. The challenge will be in how effectively organizations are able to utilize this data not only for security, but also for cross-departmental operations to increase efficiencies and revenue.
i-PRO announced its new NU-Series network video recorders (NVR), NDAA compliant with intel CPU. The new models are the successors to the NX100 and NX200 models, and are available in four, eight, and 16 channel configurations with in-built PoE(+) power and a slim form factor for easy installation. With a focus on creating a plug-and-play recording option for smaller businesses, the NU-NVRs work with i-PRO’s or any other manufacturer’s cameras, needing only to be plugged into an HDMI monitor to begin security operations.
