New i-PRO Camera Designed to Keep Watch on Prisoners


Surveillance company i-PRO has rolled out a new AI-enabled corner camera suitable for high-security environments.

Built in Japan for use in prisons, the compact stainless-steel camera represents the smallest form factor and is IK11 compliant. It can withstand a 70 Joule (70J) impact, far exceeding the common IK10 (20J) impact ratings of similar devices.

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

The camera measures 19.7×13.9×12.6 centimetres. With a range of 132 dB, images remain clear in various lighting conditions. The camera’s anti-ligature design prevents self-harm incidents while minimizing any attempt to remove the camera by force.

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.

The new corner camera is expected to be available in September 2024.
