Taiwan Dream Mall deploys QNAP NVR solutions

Introduction
Dream Mall as the largest multi-functional shopping center  in one of Taiwan's major city, Kaohsiung. ll is also one of the top large-scale shopping centers in Asia. With over 2,000 stores and restaurants, a movie theater, and an amazing roof-top amusement park, the mall occupies an area of 50,000 square meters with a total floor area of almost 400,000 square meters, including a parking lot with 3,000 parking spaces.

Challenges
Attracting tens of thousands of customers to the mall every day, Dream Mall management desired a large-scale surveillance system to fulfill purposes of crime prevention, enhancing of customer safety as well as monitoring and recording of the activities in the mall. The primary challenge comes to the need of deploying a security system capable of commanding hundreds of security cameras simultaneously in and around the shopping center. To reach such scale of security system, the total cost of traditional CCTV surveillance systems would be too high as the total length of coaxial cables required is about the equivalent of 87 San Francisco Golden Gate bridges. Besides, these CCTV systems can't offer video image quality as required.The secondary challenge is that the security system has to be highly flexible and expandable, allowing addition of new cameras and recorders.

Solution
After thorough evaluation, Dream Mall selected QNAP NVR (Network Video Recorder) solutions for its security system deployment. Multiple QNAP NVR servers are set up and attached to the network to command 600 Panasonic IP and analog cameras with megapixel resolution and VGA resolution. The NVR demonstrates excellent compatibility and allows new models to be integrated to the security system with simple network connection, saving hassles of physical wiring and setup.

QNAP NVR servers offer Full-D1 resolution, which is similar to DVD video quality for clear image monitoring and recording. Surveillance videos are recorded to the internal hard disks of the NVR units offering mass storage capacity with secure RAID disk volume protection. The recorded video can also be exported to external storage devices or remote storage such as QNAP NAS or FTP servers for review by law enforcement or for redundant backup.

QNAP NVR provides advanced features such as moving objects detection in the monitored areas, network disconnection alert, and smart E-map to help the security personnel locate any abnormal activities within the Dream Mall. The security system is integrated with various alarm devices such as fire alarms and emergency call buttons to protect the safety of the employees, customers, and the properties.

Customer Feedback
QNAP NVR solutions have made high quality and cost-efficient monitoring in a large-scale shopping mall possible. The NVR can be easily integrated with numerous IP cameras and alarm devices. We expected to increase the number of IP cameras to 2,000 in the coming few years.

QNAP NVR is easy to maintain; it helps reduce the overall system setup and maintenance costs. The videos can be monitored on the network remotely and even on mobile devices by their mobile viewing app, which largely enhances the surveillance efficiency.
