Harris Corp’s InfoCaster approved in Nevada
July 11, 2008
Harris Corporation’s InfoCaster digital signage solution has been approved for use with Bally and Paltronics progressive slot gaming systems by the state of Nevada Gaming Control Board, the company has announced.
The InfoCaster solution’s media controller interface enables the digital signage system to grab dynamically changing data — using XML schemes — from Bally and Paltronics systems and continually update and display data relating to the “progressive” values from the slot machines in real time. In the event of a jackpot hit, the InfoCaster system displays the amount and location of the jackpot win within the slot machine areas and can automatically display the win on screens throughout an entire venue.
“Casinos and other slot machine gaming venues are looking for every competitive edge to enhance the customer experience, boost brand loyalty and increase profits,” said Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications. “With its ability to work in real time and generate high-quality displays, the InfoCaster system offers a unique way for slot machine venues to interface with progressive gaming systems already in place to grab the attention of guests and increase excitement.”InfoCaster offers a complete suite of systems for creating, scheduling, distributing, playing and reporting live video and graphics. Users can acquire or create digital content and manage it throughout the entire delivery chain — from a central site or multiple remote locations — on a digital signage network.
