Panasonic Introduces i-PRO Extreme
Technology Platform

 

New technology platform delivers end-to-end H.265 compatibility
and performance enhancements for harsh and rugged environments

 

ORLANDO (September 12, 2016) – Panasonic, a leading provider of integrated security and video surveillance solutions, today introduced its next generation i-PRO® Extreme technology platform at ASIS International 2016. The i-PRO Extreme platform is available on Panasonic’s new line-up of cameras, recorders and video management software (VMS) —providing end-to-end H.265 compression with Smart Coding while also delivering significant enhancements for extreme visibility, system reliability, network based security and embedded intelligence.


“Panasonic continues to raise the bar on imaging quality, overall system performance and data security to exceed customer expectations — even in the most demanding lighting situations and harshest environments,” said Charlie Hare, National Category Manager, Security Evidence Management Solutions. “The introduction of the new i-PRO Extreme technology platform as well as our latest cameras, recorder and software solutions underscores our commitment to helping customers maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of their video surveillance systems while protecting their existing investments.”


Key technology enhancements delivered by i-PRO Extreme include:


Extreme Visibility:
Intelligent Auto Mode: Advanced image stabilization steadies the camera to prevent blurred images and intelligent sensitivity enables the camera to automatically adjust gain and shutter speed to adapt to the brightness and object movement in a scene.  
144dB Enhanced Super Dynamic and Face Super Dynamic: High performance face detection technology in the camera combined with new 144dB enhanced SD capabilities, automatically enables clear identification of a person’s face, even in very dynamic scenes or heavily backlit conditions for optimal face recognition and evidence capture.
Color Night View: Color night view enhancer technology transforms a standard 1/3 inch sensor camera   into an effective low-light capable camera enabling it to produce a very high-quality color image—even in the most challenging lighting conditions.

 

Extreme Compression:
H.265 Compression with Smart Coding: Now included on the new cameras, recorders, video management software, the latest H.265 standard provides a 75 percent enhancement in compression when compared to H.264 devices, delivering high picture quality with half the bandwidth requirements and reduced storage costs.
H.264 Backward Compatibility: New H.265 enabled cameras include H.264 compatibility modes enabling customers to migrate portions of their system to the new standard at their own pace. This allows users to maximize existing investments in H.264 products while reducing overall TCO and helping to future proof their networks.
Smart Facial Coding: New cameras capable of detecting up to 8 faces simultaneously can now be linked with new compression techniques to maintain the Region Of Interest (ROI) at a higher picture quality. A built-in self-learning algorithm enables the camera to predict where movements may happen and ensure the camera is responsive and effectively manages picture quality in real-time.

 

Extreme Reliability: 

Extreme Data Security
Secure Communications: Because every device with an IP address is potentially vulnerable to cyber threats, Panasonic has expanded it deployment of Secure Communication Technology across its new line of i-PRO Extreme H.265 cameras, recorders and video management software. Panasonic’s Secure Communications Protection Suite, developed in collaboration with Symantec, the global leader in cybersecurity, combines Symantec’s scalable and reliable Device Certificate technology to perform trusted device authentication, and together with Panasonic’s own in-house embedded cryptography technology, provides a highly secure and robust protection layer for its embedded surveillance products.
•The Secure Communication Suite specifically protects against spoofing (false data), video tampering or altering (changing images), and snooping of protected surveillance communications (stealing passwords).
•These protection technologies include video data encryption, IP communication encryption and Symantec’s Key based verification certificates, now currently available in most Panasonic H.264 based cameras, will be extended to the complete line of iPRO Extreme H.265 based hardware and software products providing the most extreme end-to-end IP security available in an IP video surveillance platform.
