SSI upgrades surveillance/security systems at Treasure Island
February 9, 2012
Surveillance Systems Integration (SSI), a Roseville, Calif.-based firm that offers surveillance integration expertise to the casino and retail industries, has completed a comprehensive overhaul and update of the Treasure Island Hotel & Casino surveillance and security infrastructure throughout the Las Vegas resort property.
The multi-phase project covered a 10-month period that included equipping Treasure Island with the innovative Pelco Endura 2.0 video management system, completely designed and installed by SSI. The Endura video management system is comprised of digital recording and a virtual matrix to monitor and record up to 1400 channels of video thought the property.
“With specific requests, restrictions and needs in mind, SSI developed a digital system solution to maximize the limited and existing space in Treasure Island,” said Todd Flowers, president of SSI. “We were the only integrator that detailed a firm plan and strategy that increased both the security and surveillance department’s workspace and placed them on the cutting edge of the latest in security technology.”
The system has now been installed and is being utilized with Treasure Island reporting an increase in security and operations efficiency. Among the various renovations, one highlight is that all cameras will record and data will be retained for a minimum of seven days, using the latest in digital camera and recording equipment. The casino resort upgraded its legacy analog VCR and matrix system to a state-of-the-art digital recording and virtual matrix system, Pelco Endura 2.0, which included upgrades to the facility’s existing surveillance and security observation rooms with new operator consoles and video walls. The Pelco Endura 2.0 Virtual Matrix Switch allows the security operator to control cameras, call up video and perform live tracking of people and events much like the traditional matrix, but without the additional space needed to house traditional matrix hardware. The new system is also future-proofed as the infrastructure for future expansions has also been created, which will allow the casino to phase out other existing analog cameras for IP-based, high definition cameras.
