Dallmeier, a leading German manufacturer of video solutions for casinos, is sponsor of the European Dealer Championship 2022 (16 to 18 May 2022, Casino de Monte-Carlo, Monaco). With Dallmeier’s cameras and recording systems as well as the “Casino Operating System” Hemisphere Semsy, casino operators can integrate, process and present data from different systems, and thereby improve their security and business processes.
The European Dealer Championship offers the best croupiers in Europe the opportunity to prove their skills. At the same time, the event serves as a platform for leading companies in the industry to meet, network and exchange information on current technologies.
With the open Hemisphere Semsy software platform, Dallmeier will show how casino operators can manage data from different systems via a central hub. These include point-of-sale, slot machines, card shoes, RFID readers, access control or fire alarm systems as well as data from the Dallmeier CAT table game analysis systems.
Widgets can be used to create personalised user interfaces so for example floor managers or security officers only ever see exactly the information they need for their task. Seamless integration and linking of video data allows events or alarms to be tracked, researched and verified extremely efficiently. In combination with the innovative 360° “Panomera W8” camera systems, finding a “person of interest” in a standard scenario on the gaming floor can be done in less than three minutes instead of over 20 minutes with traditional PTZ-technology in comparable scenarios.
The “W8” works like a combination of overview and PTZ camera and enables convenient tracking of the wanted person. Once the incident is under control, casino staff can centrally collect, store and share videos, notes, reports and other information about a specific incident via “digital incident files”.
In addition, the Dallmeier experts provide information on how casinos can meet the requirements of the regulatory authorities for video security systems with fewer cameras. For example, just a few Dallmeier “Panomera W8” cameras are sufficient to ensure the camera redundancies required on the gaming floor if, for example, one of two over-the-table cameras fails.
“In contrast to classic PTZ cameras, the Dallmeier Panomera W cameras enable an overview of the largest contexts and at the same time allow one or more “virtual PTZs” to be opened at the click of a mouse. This means that far fewer camera systems are needed, with a corresponding positive effect on the total cost of ownership,” says Ep Smit, casino expert at Dallmeier. “Unlike PTZ cameras, casino operators can also use our W8 for numerous analytics applications, for example to better utilise the gaming floor, or to provide a better customer experience and customer loyalty.”
