Synectics to provide surveillance for Philippine casino

Global surveillance business Synectics says it has been selected to supply an integrated surveillance solution for one of the new integrated resorts in the Philippines.

The company didn’t name the property, but said it will be home to the biggest gaming floor in the Philippines with about 500 gaming tables and 3,000 slot machines.

The contract is a multi-million pound agreement to provide a solution to monitor and record high-definition video from over 6,000 cameras.

The Synectics solution will also integrate live and recorded video with alarm and transactional data from slot machines, point-of-sale registers, baccarat tables, access control points and other third party systems for multi-layered, property-wide security.

The system, developed with integration partner Empire Automation, is scheduled to be installed during the 4th quarter of 2016, in advance of the first phase opening of the resort at the end of this year.

“This is an exciting and, in many ways, pioneering project for Synectics in the Asia Pacific gaming market,” said vice president of global gaming John Katnic. “The resort owner’s ambitious goal was to achieve seamless integration between surveillance, security, gaming and hospitality systems and to implement automated data-driven workflows based on property-wide situational awareness.”
