GSA and GTA co-host technology workshop in Australia
April 14, 2009
The Gaming Standards
Association (GSA) and the Gaming Technologies Association (GTA) co-hosted an
important Gaming Communication Technology Workshop in Sydney to review recent changes in technology
and how Australasian jurisdictions might be affected by those changes and by
the application of GSA protocols.
The two day workshop was attended by more than 50 technologists, regulators, suppliers and operator representatives from around the Asia-Pacific region. A range of presentations reviewed current technology frameworks, technology architecture contrasts and the effect and impact of GSA standards.
GSA President Peter DeRaedt, was pleased with the workshop outcomes. “Our objective for this workshop was achieved” he said. “We facilitate the development of open communication standards and want to continue to bring together all parties worldwide. This allows us to foster a closer collaboration and help move the industry forward. Australia provides an important part of that global picture. GSA standards create a landscape that drives innovation in a positive way.”
GTA’s Chief Executive Ross Ferrar said that the attendance reflected the importance of communications technology and the high level of interest in how recent developments might be applied. “GSA has achieved outstanding progress in delivering open standards to the gaming data communications sphere. The richness of information their implementation delivers is an increasingly vital aspect of delivering great gaming technology and meeting our various audiences’ expectations” he said.
