TOKYO, Japan – Surveillance and public safety security solutions provider i-PRO Co., Ltd. (formerly Panasonic Security) today announced its new artificial intelligence-enabled Corner Camera.

Built in Japan for the rigors of correctional facilities, this stainless steel camera “represents the smallest form factor, which is IK11 compliant,” according to the company announcement. Its ability to withstand a 70 Joule (70J) impact far exceeds the common IK10 (20J) impact ratings of similar devices, the announcement says.

“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,” says 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.”

The camera’s wide-angle view (131 degrees horizontal, 95 degrees vertical) limits blind spots, providing full room coverage. The sensor provides a ±5 degree yaw adjustment and a ±5 degree 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 197x139x126 mm (7.76 x 5.47 x 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,” says Figols in the company announcement. “When you factor in the additional license-free AI applications, it’s truly an industry-leading camera.”

The camera’s anti-ligature design prevents self-harm incidents while minimizing any attempt to remove the camera by force.

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 i-PRO new corner camera is expected to be available in September 2024 from i-PRO’s global network of resellers.
