New corner camera with AI from i-PRO

Featuring small form factor stainless steel IK11+ 70J impact-rated housing and advanced AI-powered analytics

i-PRO Co., Ltd. (formerly Panasonic Security) has recently announced the release of a new AI-enabled Corner Camera. Built in Japan with a specific focus on correctional facilities,the camera is described as ‘exceptionally compact and robust’.

It is a stainless-steel camera with a small form factor, and is IK11 compliant. Its ability to withstand a 70 Joule (70J) impact far exceeds the common IK10 (20J) impact ratings of similar devices.

“The i-PRO Corner Camera represents a new standard for high-security environments, providing unmatched reliability and advanced AI-powered analytics all within the most compact form factor” said Gerard Figols, Chief Product Officer at i-PRO. “With its IK11+ 70J rating, it is clearly the most shock-resistant corner mount surveillance camera in the industry today.”

More from the vendor:

The camera’s wide-angle view (131° horizontal, 95° vertical) limits blind spots, providing full room coverage. The sensor provides a ±5° yaw adjustment and a ±5° tilt to further conform to installation requirements. An invisible IR-LED illuminates up to 15 meters using a 940nm wavelength. While the stainless steel body exceeds an equivalent IK11+ impact rating, any attempt to tamper with the camera, from impacts to opening the case, instantly sends an alarm to operators.

The i-PRO Corner Camera measures just 197x139x126 mm (7.76×5.47×4.96 inches). With a dynamic range of 132 dB, images remain clear in a variety of lighting conditions. “The engineers at i-PRO have done it again. When you factor in the additional license-free AI applications, it’s truly an industry-leading camera” said Figols. The camera’s all-important anti-ligature design prevents self-harm incidents while minimizing any attempt to remove the camera by force.

Powerful AI-assisted Edge Analytics

The corner camera supports up to three free i-PRO AI applications simultaneously, such as AI Video Motion Detection, Privacy Guard, and People Detection. To protect prisoner privacy, i-PRO’s AI Privacy Guard feature can automatically blur faces or entire bodies, creating a redacted stream. A built-in microphone facilitates AI-based sound detection of yelling, glass breaks, and more.



For enhanced cybersecurity, the vandal-proof camera includes a secure boot feature and complies with the FIPS 140-2 level 3 standard.


The new corner camera is expected to be available in September 2024 from i-PRO’s extensive global network of resellers. For more information please visit:
