Acumen at Moscow MIPS 2014: Affordable and Professional Solutions Can Go Together

Acumen Int. Corp. took part in the 20th international exhibition Protection, Security, and Fire Safety (MIPS) that was held in Moscow on April 14-17. The exhibition demonstrated that surveillance systems based on Acumen equipment are one of the most attractive (both in terms of affordability and in terms of functionality) in today’s video security market.

Despite certain challenges faced by the Russian market nowadays, Acumen keeps its confidence in prospects of the market and pursue its efforts to improve IP products (the so-called AiP Series).



The focus at MIPS 2014 was placed on specific solutions for specific sectors. Due to a wide product range, its flexibility and availability of professional software AiM 2.6 (which comes free of charge), the company offers ready-to-use solutions in many areas – from retail and hospitality sectors to banking and perimeter security systems.


However, the quality and functionality of AiP-series by no means imply high prices: as some experts have noted, pricing per channel for systems based on Acumen equipment is one of the most affordable and customer friendly in the market. Moreover, AiP-series are characterized by their low network load (around 3 Mbits for a Full HD camera at 30 FPS), energy efficiency (an network recorder consumes 120 W at most, for cameras this number is around 10-15 W) and ease in installation (PoE technology, IP-scan, etc.).



During the exhibition, the most popular models among visitors were new releases of AiP-series: AiP-A54A Austria, AiP-B28N Belize, AiP-B84N Bahrain. Austria  – a fisheye camera – attracts by its ability to “divide” image into four independent parts, each of which can be controlled through ePTZ. B84N Bahrain is the flagship of the series with 8 MP resolution at 30 FPS.  Camera Belize (2 MP at astonishing 120 FPS) is a natural choice for high-speed systems.


This year Acumen plans to release a client manager to simplify large systems management (more than 100 cameras), to standardize digital recorders (DVR) under ONVIF, and to start production of 24-channel sensor recorders (SVR) along with wireless cameras.
