Italian Casino’s High-Def System Reduces Bandwidth and Storage Needs
OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada—The Casino de la Vallée is currently deploying March Networks’, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, VideoSphere solution to meet the surveillance requirements of its gaming venue in Saint-Vincent, Valle D’Aosta, Italy, March Networks announced.
Equipped with more than 380 VideoSphere IP cameras, video management system (VMS) software and an integrated control room application, VideoSphere delivers live monitoring and archiving capabilities for asset protection, dispute resolution and security, according to the company.
The casino, which operates 400 slot machines, 96 gaming tables, a restaurant and a 220-room hotel, recently upgraded to the fully-digital video system to enhance its surveillance coverage of all gaming areas, counting rooms, entries/exits and other public spaces. Control room staff use integrated site maps and pre-set camera tours provided through the VideoSphere software to monitor activities in real-time and quickly search and analyze recorded video when necessary to respond to specific incidents. Security staff may also request archived video footage to address customer disputes more effectively.
The solution provides the casino with high-quality video at frame rates of up to 30 fps. High-definition megapixel 720p cameras capture crystal clear images with vivid color, as well as associated audio, while MicroDome pan/tilt/zoom (p/t/z) cameras with optical zoom enable detailed surveillance. Both cameras feature H.264 video compression and Power over Ethernet operation, significantly reducing bandwidth and storage requirements and simplifying installation.
