At the ICE Totally Gaming 2018 in London, Dallmeier’s Casino Division team presented for the first time in Europe their brand new innovative Casino Automation Technology (CAT) dedicated to live gaming and table gaming automation. Dallmeier has recently successfully carried out numerous tests in live Casino environments and has proven CAT to be an accurate, secure and market ready product.
We recently discussed how casinos and gaming facilities are realizing the benefits of IP video to secure their facilities and meet gaming compliance regulations. Yet, there’s another reason why the migration from analog to IP video is taking place at such a rapid pace. As gaming facilities continue transitioning to full IP video systems to capitalize on the high-quality imaging they provide, they are also realizing other benefits that include the ability to centralize and manage surveillance operations more efficiently.
One major transformation in casino surveillance and security operations is the transition from analog video to digital recording and IP-cameras. The change is being brought about by several factors: some gaming commissions now insist on remote access to recorded or live video, which analog video cannot do; many manufacturers no longer make or sell VCRs; and analog systems have limitations on cable distances and distribution points, which limits their functionality.
Casino environments are difficult, and, as such, so is the design and implementation of a casino surveillance system. Historically, whether by design or restriction of available technology, many casinos have operated on separate Pit Cam systems (for surveillance of gaming areas including blackjack, roulette, and baccarat) and general surveillance systems (covering slot/pokie machines, bars and entertainment areas, entrances/exits and public walkways).
Interesting question. They actually employ former card counters and have them sit in the security booths and watch players via the security cameras. If they see a lone card counter raising and lowering his bets, they either send more drinks to slow him down, or they’ll eventually send a pit boss or security to ask him to leave. Catching a team card counter is slightly harder to do just through the “eyes in the sky.”

Casinos in Macau and major companies in Hong Kong are looking to upgrade their face-recognition surveillance systems, making it easier for staff to know a customer’s age, gender, and spending habits the moment they walk in the door.
