Success Story: McMegapixel is on the Menu

Oct. 16, 2012

A 24-hour drive-thru McDonald’s restaurant in Dublin has deployed IQinVision HD megapixel cameras managed by the XProtect video platform from Milestone Systems to improve safety and operations. For the protection of staff and customers, McDonald’s displays its live megapixel video footage on prominent monitors to successfully deter theft.

McDonald’s officials decided on an IP surveillance system because of the image quality achieved both day and night from the megapixel cameras and the ability to log on to the store remotely via Virtual Private Network. IQeye Alliance-mini dome PoE cameras in 1.3 MP and 2 MP cover the restaurant eating areas, counter areas, cash registers, drive-thru windows, staff areas and kitchens.

To monitor outside traffic in the drive-thru, a combination of 2MP IQeye Sentinel PoE cameras were mounted on poles and HD720p IQeye Alliance-mx vandal-resistant domes were positioned to capture registration plates on cars exiting the drive-thru lanes. All 24 cameras record to a Milestone server.
