The Panasonic i-PRO X-Series cameras run Deep Learning AI applications on the edge for lower TCO and faster processing
Panasonic today announced its collaboration with the software company A.I.Tech. It brings together i-PRO’s industry leading security cameras with built-in AI capabilities and groundbreaking intelligent applications to provide a range of business solutions based on deep learning, many applicable to the current COVID-19 environment.
The deep learning applications run directly on the cameras themselves, eliminating the need for additional servers for analytical calculations whilst maintaining the same high levels of accuracy. The benefits include lower total cost of ownership of security infrastructure, as well as faster processing and more immediate alarms, notifications or information from the applications.
A number of the AI applications can be used in the current pandemic to help manage social distancing, occupancy levels and the wearing of face masks. Applications can also be used by retailers to enhance the customer experience; in smart cities for traffic monitoring and smart parking; and by event organisers and transports hubs to monitor and ensure safety.
They are completely integrated with the recently introduced Panasonic i-PRO X-Series camera range with AI engine, which includes six new models in total: The 5MP resolution cameras went on sale in July and the 4K resolution cameras come to market in November. All are available with vandal resistant indoor and outdoor dome or box configurations.
