A typical casino requires 2,000 or more digital or analog video cameras running 24 hours a day. This volume of video data is not only cumbersome, it is expensive to manage. But with today’s advances in digital video technology, the price of maintaining such large surveillance systems is declining, and casinos around the world are taking advantage of these new technologies to lower costs, improve efficiency and reduce the level of complexity.
By switching to IP cameras and network video, casinos achieve higher quality video, greater accessibility and better control over recorded video data. Accessibility is also a growing concern as gaming commissions are now requiring the use of network video for remote access, leading to the requirement that captured digital video be transferred and stored over a local network, which in turn places increasing demands on the casino’s network infrastructure.
Reliable, high volume network video solutions are required. Lanner provides the building blocks for creating high capacity, high performance and highly reliable network video systems for large installations such as casino surveillance systems. Lanner network video recorders (NVR) and capture cards utilize the latest H.264 AVC (Advanced Video Codec) standard for compression and delivering video streams over IP networks. The H.264 codec provides the best combination of resolution and file size currently available, and offers distinct advantages in terms of network bandwidth and file storage requirements, especially for large surveillance systems like those in casinos.
Deploying surveillance systems on high quality hardware platforms like Lanner NVR and storage platforms ensures that casino operators achieve maximum availability, security and return on investment.
