Imagis Technologies Inc. (Imagis), announced today a new suite of gaming products for the security and surveillance markets will be demonstrated at the upcoming World Gaming Congress, October 18th, with Imagis business partner, Laser Barcode Solutions, of Las Vegas, Nevada. Gaming-ID™ is a sophisticated suite of biometric solutions designed to meet the unique needs of casinos. The suite includes biometric facial recognition, data and imaging, regional data sharing and investigation applications.
"Gaming-ID™ brings together a number of applications necessary for casino operators to maintain order in their facilities," stated Tom Yokoyama, President of Laser Barcode. "Photos of all banned patrons will be held electronically both by the casino and also in a central location. Imagis Gaming-ID suite of software solutions can instantly recognize banned patrons and alert casino security, faster and more efficiently than procedures in place today."
"Imagis Gaming-ID™ software works by translating facial images into digital strings that produce immediate confirmation of a visitor’s identity. Visual information can be captured, stored, searched and retrieved in a user friendly system designed specifically for casinos," said Iain Drummond, President & CEO, Imagis Technologies Inc. "Our casino customers have benefited tremendously from this technology. We believe we can help Las Vegas casinos significantly improve their security systems."
One fan of the Imagis system is George Joseph, an international expert for police agencies and gaming regulators around the world on the surveillance of casino activity. According to Joseph, "Imagis will be providing Las Vegas casinos with a complete solution to prevent repeat casino offenders from re-entering the grounds. Gaming-ID is an ideal system for casinos because it operates out of sight, is non-intrusive and does not disturb legitimate customers. And it works!"
Gaming-ID is designed for a network, such as Las
Vegas casinos, where a common database is easily built up. Imagis
products can search local, regional or national databases to identify suspects
in seconds. Imagis’ ID-2000™ recognition technology was designed
in conjunction with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and is used in numerous
law enforcement, gaming, airport and security settings around the world.
