i-PRO, a global leader in professional security solutions for video surveillance and public safety, and a New Platinum Award Champion in the 2022 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, will showcase multiple new products at ISC West 2023 in booth #10037.
The company’s latest products include new multi-sensor and PTZ cameras, new analytics capabilities, new features in the i-PRO MonitorCast access control solution, and more.
ISC West attendees will have the opportunit to experience live, in-depth demos of i-PRO’s industry-leading Active Guard AI-powered analytics working on popular VMS platforms such as Genetec, Milestone, and Video Insight.
The i-PRO Active Guard plug-in enables a more proactive security stance by combining deep learning technology and i-PRO imaging expertise to search or notify in real-time using a variety of external attributes. A new analytic that can detect changes in a scene will also be demonstrated.

“i-PRO captures more attributes for the objects it detects than any other manufacturer. This makes our analytics more accurate and powerful saving critical time when gathering evidence or searching for unique events in real-time,” explains Adam Lowenstein, Director of Product Management, at i-PRO Americas.
“Our goal is to enable our customers to proactively engage in evolving events as they happen, not just react to past events.”
Show visitors will also see live demos of i-PRO’s multi-sensor and AI Auto-Tracking PTZ integration and installation innovations that save installers time and labor costs.
Ease of installation extends beyond mounting and power considerations since i-PRO’s smaller cameras weigh less and can be deployed in locations where other cameras cannot be installed due to size.
Furthermore, resellers can test the new i-PRO EZ-2 Portal, which enhances and simplifies the way they conduct business with i-PRO by showing real-time ‘at-a-glance’ inventory status to streamline ordering, creation of quick quotes 24/7, access to training and product information and more.
“Building on its Panasonic heritage, i-PRO has become a well-established brand known for quality and reliability, yet also new, agile, and driving the pace of innovation,” said Bill Brennan, President of i-PRO Americas.
“The Japanese design team has taken i-PRO to the next level and with i-PRO manufacturing moving back to Japan, this co-located team is being positioned to design, test, and build industry-leading products faster than ever.”
“Our goal is to make it easy to fulfill orders so our partners can complete jobs on time and on budget.”
Every i-PRO camera and network device is built with the most stringent cybersecurity features.
Additionally at ISC West, Will Knehr, MS, MBA, CISSP, PMP, i-PRO’s Senior Manager of Information Security and Data Privacy, will participate in a panel discussing Cyber-Physical Security: New Challenges and Liabilities for Security Professionals on Thursday, March 30th from 1 pm-2 pm.

i-PRO Americas Takes Platinum as New 2022 ‘ASTORS’ Award Champion
American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, and now entering it’s Eighth Year, continues to recognize industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness – Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to Keep our Nation Secure.
Best Vehicle Mounted Law Enforcement Solution
i-PRO WV-VCF41P 4K Sensor Panoramic In-Car Front Camera for Law Enforcement Vehicles
The i-PRO WV-VCF41P is a new 4K Panoramic Front Camera for police vehicles. A component of i-PRO’s powerful ICV4000 in-car video (ICV) system, the new camera is ideal for law enforcement agencies seeking wide-angle coverage and high-resolution capture of video evidence from the vehicle.
Unlike traditional forward-facing cameras, the WV-VCF41P provides a full 150-degree field of view. The innovative lens is specifically designed to minimize distortion and edge warping, resulting in the widest angle offered.
Behind the lens, the camera’s 4K sensor is i-PRO’s highest resolution sensor for mobile video evidence applications. This advanced lens and sensor combination accurately records events as they unfold across the entire scene in front of the vehicle. With support for detailed forensic zooming into areas of interest without image blurring, the WV-VCF41P presents the clearest possible evidence.
Policing with an in-car video system is more demanding than ever, with the expectation that each interaction and event will be captured on video. Many in-vehicle cameras offer a limited field of view between 55 and 85 degrees, and are unable to record what occurs to the extreme left and right of the central focus.
The compact design of the versatile WV-VCF41P fits behind the rearview mirror so it does not obstruct the driver’s view. Its 32:9 aspect ratio image reduces storage requirements by removing unnecessary areas, such as the sky or a vehicle’s hood, allowing agencies to concentrate on the relevant parts of the evidence.
A simple Power over Ethernet connection allows for easy installation, and a built-in G-force sensor provides automatic activation upon impact which reduces the cost and complexity of installing a separate sensor.

The pinnacle of the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program is the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards Ceremony Luncheon Banquet, an exclusive, full-course plated meal event, in the heart of New York City.
This year’s exclusive sold-out ‘ASTORS’ luncheon featured representatives of law enforcement, public safety, and industry leaders who came together to honor the selfless service of those who stand on the front lines, and those who stand beside them – providing the capabilities and technologies to create a safer world for generations to come.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which came out in force, to discuss comprehensive collaborations between private and public sectors that have led to the development of intelligence and technologies which serve to protect our nation.
The continually evolving ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program emphasized the trail of Accomplished Women in Leadership in 2022, as well as the Significance and Positive Impact of Advancing Diversity and Inclusion in our Next Generation of Government and Industry Leaders.
The keynote address was provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations (OFO) Deputy Executive Assistant Commissioner (DEAC) Diane Sabatino, who described the changes to CBP through the tragedy of 9/11 and the relentless commitment to its mission and ongoing investment in the latest technologies and innovations to protect our borders and Homeland.
The resounding theme of the DEAC’s remarks was her pride in the women and men of the CBP and their families who support them.
AST was also joined by Legendary Police Commissioner William Bratton, who spoke, as always, about his love for the City of New York, the Profession of law enforcement to which he has dedicated his life, and for which he continues to drive thought leadership and innovation.
New York City Police Department (NYPD) Chief of Department Kenneth Corey, came out to address Luncheon attendees and shared some of his experiences and the changes in policing he’s witnessed over his more than three decades of service.
FDNY Chief Joseph Jardin honored the men and women of the FDNY, not only those who currently serve but all of those who have selflessly served, with a special recognition of those lost on 9/11.
Chief Jardin spoke about the continuing health battle of many following 9/11 with cancer and respiratory disease, yet now knowing the full consequences, would not have made a different decision to respond.
As Chief Jardin noted, mission-driven service is in the lifeblood of every firefighter, volunteer and sworn and has been so throughout the history of the Fire Service.
Former head of the FBI’s active shooter program, Katherine Schweit joined AST to sign complimentary copies of her book, ‘STOP THE KILLING: How to End the Mass Shooting Crisis,’ thanks to the generosity of our 2022 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Sponsors.
