i-PRO has announced the addition of Docker container support on its X-Series line of AI-enabled cameras and will showcase it at ISC West 2024.

According to the company, Docker containers directly support i-PRO’s open platform development initiatives by providing a standardized way for application developers to advance the AI capabilities of i-PRO edge devices.

Docker provides a secure, containerized environment to run custom applications while facilitating integration with cloud services.

The environment offers a protective barrier, preventing direct access to the core operating functions of the camera, ensuring cybersecurity while allowing flexibility.

Tailored analytics

“Thanks to Docker, third-party app providers can reduce development cycles and costs to develop customized AI apps,” said Hideo Noguchi, Chief Technical Officer, i-PRO.

“Docker containers make tailored analytics development more accessible for everyone.”

Using Docker containers enables the modularization of different AI components, i-PRO reports.

By encapsulating various functionalities within separate containers, it becomes easier to maintain the overall system.

Additionally, Docker allows for scaling of the AI components by running multiple instances of containers across distributed edge devices.

For example, Microsoft’s Azure IoT Edge, allows developers to design intelligent apps in the cloud and deploy them directly to IoT devices using Docker containers.

A Docker layer not only improves accessibility for traditional analytics providers but also extends the camera’s utility as an IoT data collection point, enabling companies to associate video and AI metadata with additional digital transformation initiatives.
