McDonald's turns to Hikvision for Security in Malaysia
Hikvision, the global leader in video surveillance equipment, and their Malaysian partner, AAC Distribution Sdn Bhd, have recently completed a mass scale CCTV installation for McDonald's Corporation in Malaysia.
The huge project includes the implementation of 2,000 Hikvision 3MP Vandal-proof Dome Cameras across more than 300 McDonald's branches, all integrated with the food outlet's POS terminals and accounting system.
"McDonald's management were completely satisfied with the robust nature of the POS integration and the 1080p HD quality of the camera feed", says Weison Chiang, Product Manager at AAC Distribution Sdn Bhd.
"A total of 2,000 Hikvision 3MP Vandal-proof Dome Cameras have been supplied for the project, with each outlet using one camera for every POS terminal. For almost all the outlets, this means 5 or 7 units connected to a Hikvision DS-7716NI-ST Embedded NVR. Each of the POS terminals has also been linked to the NVR through a Serial IO Server and switch. Because the video surveillance system is so tightly integrated into the central management system of each outlet, the store managers are able to search and play back the transaction histories to help with loss prevention and supply evidence for any customer transaction disputes."
Robin Hu, sales manager for Hikvision Malaysia says, "Hikvision is proud to have played an integral role in what has been a massive undertaking for McDonald's corporation. The successful implementation of the newly integrated POS and CCTV surveillance system is a landmark moment in the company's history. It has brought about an improvement in working efficiency in each store. But, far more importantly, it provides a safer shopping environment for both customers and staff."
