IDIS introduces 5 MP edge AI camera range to security market

IDIS HAS launched what the surveillance specialist describes as a “powerful and easy-to-deploy” range of edge AI cameras. The new models build on the company’s focus of extending the scalable use of its self-developed IDIS Deep Learning Engine to meet customers’ security, safety and operational needs with AI-powered appliances, servers and software “designed to suit organisations of all sizes” in a wide range of vertical markets.

The new 5 MP dome (DC-D4537RXA and DC-D4537HRXA) and bullet (DC-T4537HRXA) models come with the IDIS Deep Learning Engine on-board, unlocking highly efficient processing capability at the edge. The new models expand the company’s comprehensive range of HD DirectIP cameras available to users looking to enhance their video surveillance with up to 98% accurate object detection and classification, helping them to reduce false alarms, strengthen security and safety and add value to their security operations.

AI capabilities on the edge support operators with detecting people, faces and vehicles, while in parallel improving image quality. AI features include line crossing, intrusion, object, loitering and face detection.

These indoor-ready and outdoor-ready models come without any upfront or ongoing license fees and combine AI with IR LED up to 40 metres to allow for the accurate detection of object movement by reducing the ‘noise’ of low-light environments. The cameras also feature IDIS Smart Failover, true Wide Dynamic Range, H.265, IDIS Intelligent Codec and PoE.

End users benefit from a triple-axis mechanical design to support rapid plug-and-play installation and “seamless” connectivity with IDIS network recorders, faster investigations and a choice of cost-free IDIS Center or enterprise-class IDIS Solution Suite VMS, all combining to deliver on the IDIS promise of a low total cost of ownership.

Highly accurate alerts

The new cameras are particularly useful for customers who want highly accurate alerts and notifications exactly where they need them the most, targeting detection at vulnerable perimeters, at vehicle access and parking areas, entrances and exits, so too sensitive or risk-critical locations.

Trained with vast datasets to deliver up to 98% accuracy, the IDIS-developed Deep Learning Engine is “setting new benchmarks” for reliability and performance, at the same time reducing the burden of false alarms often caused by conventional video analytics.

“Our deep learning-powered cameras increase the productivity of security personnel, while also making the monitoring process more proactive, affordable and efficient,” explained James Min, managing director of IDIS Europe.

Min added: “Eliminating the need for operators to monitor multiple camera feeds is supporting faster response to incidents and more certain outcomes, speeding up investigation procedures and adding value to surveillance operations.”
