Pelco has announced a new integrated solution based on the Pelco VideoXpert™ VMS with Ipsotek’s VISuite 10.1 advanced video analytics platform. The integration provides a solution that increases security, reduces investigation time, and takes the complexity out of managing the video and associated analytics in an overall surveillance network.
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.
Pelco by Schneider Electric has joined forces with AMAG Technology to deliver a truly integrated and scalable access control and surveillance system management solution enabling end-users across a wide spectrum of applications to make faster and more informed decisions.
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.
Pelco by Schneider Electric, a global leader in surveillance and security, is showcasing integrated technologies which drive the company’s advanced solutions capabilities for leading vertical markets here at ASIS 2017 (booth #2309).

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).
