MESSAGE

Masato Nakao
Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
Shohei Ozaki
Chief Operating Officer (COO)
Working toward security and safety in an enjoyable society that creates smiles

In October 2019, we became independent from Panasonic to establish the Image Sensing Business.
The word "i-PRO" in the company name implies that we are professionals who are firmly committed to provide imaging, intelligence, and integration.

Recently, the damage from serious crimes and natural disasters has grown and countermeasures for
greater safety and security on a global scale are in demand.
A "society that creates smiles" requires sensing solutions that won't permit even the slightest anxieties to prevail.
We will achieve this with high levels of imaging and analyzing technologies.
