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.
