A surveillance company is capitalising on the Asian casino boom by sealing new contracts with gaming operators in the region.

Along with the expansion of major gaming facilities in Singapore, Macau and on regional cruise ships, Synectics has also begun installing its surveillance system at the Solaire Casino in the Philippines. And the company says it also has “several other high-profile casino projects in the pipeline”.

“Intelligent integration is among the most common requests from our customers – integrations that enable visual data to be paired with detailed data analysis of transactional information, security systems, gaming systems, and other alarm systems,” said John Katnic, vice president of global gaming at Synectics

“We are also increasingly working with clients to integrate video with customer-specific systems such as DRS and Genesis Gaming Solutions, particularly in Singapore, Manila and Macau.”

By 2015, it is predicted that nearly 45% of global spending on casino gaming will take place in the Asia Pacific region. And with this global shift, Synectics predicts that surveillance “will be embraced and pushed to new levels”.

“IP-based solutions that integrate video – increasingly from HD cameras – with third-party transactions and alarm data, within a single command and control environment, is where the market is heading,” said Katnic.

Synectics is exhibiting at the International Association of Casino Security (IACS) conference, which takes place at Marina Bay Sands from 27-29 May.
