Resorts World New York taps video surveillance technology from Synectic
Resorts World New York City, a 400,000-square-foot casino resort scheduled to open at Aqueduct Racetrack later this summer, has selected a turnkey surveillance solution from Synectic Systems, Inc., a Carpinteria, Calif.-based developer and manufacturer of integrated digital recording systems.
This initial Resorts World surveillance installation will record over 1,400 channels of 30FPS High-Definition IP video using Synectics' video management and integration platform, Synergy.
“Synergy's flexible and user-friendly interface was the driving force behind Synectics being the system of choice for Resorts World New York,” said John Medolla, director of surveillance for the property. “Also a major factor in the decision was Synectics' ability to create a cost-effective, all HD-IP digital recording solution-the first of its kind in North America.”
Supported by a state-of-the-art Cisco IP infrastructure, the system installation is expected to be complete by October 2011. Video integration to the casino’s point-of-sale cash register transactions through Synergy will further enhance the already robust feature set of Synectics' command and control video management platform.
“This is a monumental opportunity and partnership for Synectics,” said John Katnic, COO, Synectics USA. “Installing one of the most advanced digital surveillance systems in the world (all-IP HD video) in the greatest city in the world (New York) for one of world's most successful gaming and hospitality companies (Genting Group, parent company of Resorts World New York) is a dream come true. " Resorts World New York is set to open late summer 2011 and will initially offer 2,280 video lottery terminals and 205 electronic table games, with plans to expand to over 5,000 gaming machines by the end of the year.
Known for its reliability and flexibility, Synectics records over 50,000 cameras in over 60 casinos throughout North America, Canada and Europe, with an impressive 99.999% uptime performance record, according to company literature.
