Samsung Electronics has announced that it was selected as a video security equipment vendor of Royal Caribbean International, one of the largest cruise companies in the world.
Accordingly, Samsung will provide high-resolution (2 megapixel) IP camera to 29 cruises operated by Royal Caribbean for security use. The company plans to install the camera from this December and finish by next year.
In terms of a large-scale cruise, it needs more than 100 high-resolution security cameras per one ship. As a result, about 3000 security cameras will be installed through this contract.
