Fond-du-Luth Casino Using American Dynamics VMS to Streamline Video Surveillance Operations

The Duluth, Minn.-based casino is using victor video management system for its new IP video surveillance system.

DULUTH, Minn. — Fond-du-Luth Casino has selected Tyco Security Products.

The casino has hundreds of new Illustra IP surveillance cameras and several new VideoEdge network video recorders (NVRs). The victor VMS will allow the casino to streamline its video surveillance operations, improve video image quality and monitor live and recorded video faster, the company says.

“The efficiency and speed of the Illustra cameras plus the comprehensive view that victor gives us is exactly what we were looking for in our migration to IP-based video surveillance,” says Dennis McCauley, Fond-du-Lac County’s lead surveillance technician. “When you add to that the versatility of VideoEdge, our surveillance officers have more time to devote to active surveillance because they know that they can depend on the new system to take care of everything else.”

Here is an excerpt from the announcement by Tyco Security Products:

With the help of its systems integration firm, Brick, N.J.-based North American Video, Fond-du-Luth Casino chose American Dynamics’ victor as its new IP-based video management system because of its intuitive and powerful user interface that allows the casino to view and manage all of its video through a single user GUI interface or a Matrix switcher keyboard.

Fond-du-Luth’s surveillance operators can quickly identify security issues using victor’s Command Center feature with its Virtual Matrix, which lets operators view live and recorded video, select cameras and communicate quickly between security operator workstations. Fond-du-Luth’s surveillance operators use American Dynamics‘ 2089 matrix keyboards to search video history in a matter of seconds and search across multiple recorders simultaneously when performing investigations.

Illustra Pro IP Pan/Tilt/Zoom cameras give the casino the high-resolution video quality necessary for monitoring live and recorded activity. The cameras’ fast positioning speed, up to 512° per second, allows surveillance officers to quickly identify suspicious activity at distances of up to 1,000 feet from an individual camera.
