  4. i-PRO Introduces NU-Series NVRs, an Easily-Installed, All-in-One Recording Solution

Featuring slim-design, built-in PoE, high-capacity recording and end-to-end AI, new line provides a simple, powerful recording option while making artificial intelligence (AI) accessible for smaller spaces and businesses

Tokyo, Japan, December 1, 2022 i-PRO Co., Ltd., a global leader in professional security solutions for surveillance and public safety, today announced its new NU-Series network video recorders (NVR), NDAA compliant with intel CPU. The new models are the successors to the NX100 and NX200 models, and are available in four, eight, and 16 channel configurations with in-built PoE(+) power and a slim form factor for easy installation.

With a focus on creating a plug-and-play recording option for smaller businesses, the NU-NVRs work with i-PRO’s or any other manufacturer’s cameras, needing only to be plugged into an HDMI monitor to begin security operations. The new line also brings AI-based analytics to small and medium businesses, flexible to suit many uses. Organizations seeking simple yet highly accurate AI-based analytics such as human and vehicle object detection (AI-VMD) can eliminate the need for a PC, as the NU Series NVRs can receive alarm notifications and play back without additional hardware or software. More powerful analytics for complex uses can be achieved with i-PRO Active Guard, in combination with a PC and WV-ASM300 management software. That solution proactively notifies users of important events and/or creates detailed forensic searches utilizing up to 98 unique search and filter attributes between images of people and vehicles collected from i-PRO AI cameras.

The NU-series NVRs offer increased situational awareness even in remote locations, when operators access via a secure browser interface or via smartphone with the i-PRO Mobile App.

“i-PRO’s first NU-Series NVRs provide an easy to deploy all-in-one security solution,” said Gerard Figols, President of i-PRO EMEA. “Banks, Gas stations, supermarkets, restaurants -- any small-footprint location that needs constant surveillance can create an end-to-end, highly cybersecure ecosystem and access the power of AI while continuing to use existing equipment. We look forward to working with our partners to bring this capability and convenience to customers.”

Key features include:

Built-in PoE+ switch - The NU-Series can power up to 16 channels with a built-in PoE+ switch, eliminating the need to purchase a separate switch. The NU NVRs with PoE+ can supply power and enable data communication to the connected cameras via a single cable.

Easy installation - The slim design of the NU-Series enables them to be installed directly on a wall, hanging horizontally or vertically, under a desk or in other small spots. No storage racks are required. Also, the NU-series have tool-less structure for HDD kitting.

10x more storage than comparable NVRs - The i-PRO NU-series can support up to 20TB capacity per HDD unit, enabling system construction with high capacity (up to 20TB - 40TB), depending on the model. The 20TB HDD offers a longer retention window than most mid-range recorders, which typically store in the two-to-four TB range. Having a longer retention window allows for more footage to be available for a longer look-back window for potential investigations.  

Integration with i-PRO AI products - The NU-Series can support several AI applications and receive alarm notification and playback without a PC and video management software. All models include integrated support for i-PRO AI applications including AI-VMD, AI non-mask detection, AI Occupancy detection and AI Privacy Guard. It is also fully compatible with the i-PRO Active Guard intelligent search application.

High security – Offering the highest level of cyber security protection available, every model of the NU-Series comes with a GlobalSign® certificate pre-installed. The FIPS 140-2 level 3 Certified Secure Element guarantees customers using i-PRO NVRs with i-PRO cameras have end-to-end security in line with compliance specifications. The new NU-Series range is fully NDAA compliant.

High Connectivity - With RTSP protocol and ONVIF connection, NU-series can be connected with a range of camera brands (dependindepending on make, model number, firmware, and other variables).

  • Model NU301 supports 16 camera registrations, 16 PoE+ ports, two HDD slots with RAID1 
  • Model NU300 supports 16 camera registrations, eight PoE+ ports, and one HDD slot
  • Model NU201 supports eight camera registrations, eight PoE+ ports, and one HDD slot
