February 27, 2015 (PRWEB) February 27, 2015 -- At the World Game Protection Conference & Expo 2015, (Booth #27), Genetec™, a manufacturer of unified IP security solutions will showcase a range of IP-based security solutions ideally suited to meet the needs of gaming organizations. Genetec solutions—which include video security, access control and license plate recognition—offer facility-wide visibility and enable casinos to effectively detect and monitor crime, investigate and stop fraud.
With the US economy showing a positive recovery, casinos and resorts are enjoying increased traffic, diversified attractions and growing revenues. Gaming establishments increasingly require technologically advanced, and preferably unified, security solutions to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for their patrons.
The Genetec flagship solution for gaming organizations, Security Center, is an open-platform IP security system that seamlessly merges IP video management, access control and automatic license plate recognition (ALPR). Already installed at casinos around the world, spanning Asia/Pacific, Latin America, Europe and North America ranging in deployments of 5000 to 250 cameras, Genetec IP-based security solutions help gaming organizations improve their incident response time and conduct timely investigations, prevent false liability claims, while ensuring a safe and pleasant patron experience.
Built on an open platform, Genetec's Security Center supports thousands of models of cameras and access control devices for the diverse requirements needed to effectively monitor crucial areas of a gaming establishment. From gaming floors and retail spaces to parking lots, the system delivers high-quality H.264 HD video with megapixel resolutions and frames rates of up to 100 fps. An intuitive interface and unified platform enable security teams to move through powerful yet user-friendly applications, increasing overall productivity and efficiency.
Genetec enables gaming establishments to leverage their existing hardware investments and readily incorporate third-party systems, including fire alarms, access control, video analytics, slot machine and other casino-related software, under one unified platform. Thanks to Genetec's custom development solutions, gaming establishments can also integrate their point-of-sale (POS) systems with their security infrastructure to enable safe and flawless guest service and provide critical reporting.
Security Center can manage systems of any size. Whether combined or implemented individually, Genetec's solutions keep pace with any gaming establishment’s evolving requirements, integrating new cameras and access controllers as needed. The mapping feature in Security Center (Plan Manager) lets security professionals rapidly pinpoint and pull up specific cameras and doors, facilitating time-sensitive investigations. The interactive mapping functionality improves the overall situational awareness for the security staff, enabling them to quickly react by dynamically navigating throughout facilities to manage cameras, doors, intrusion devices, and other security systems.
The Automated License Plate Recognition module of Security Center, AutoVu, enables security teams to efficiently identify possible suspects and black-listed guests in the parking lot, before they hit the gaming floor. The AutoVu Sharp cameras are placed in a facility’s parking entry and exit points, and can accurately read license plates at speeds of up to140 MPH (225 km/h) and compares collected plate numbers against hotlists and self-exclusion lists.
