PDS Gaming announced an exclusive distributorship of Meter Image Capturing, (MiC). MiC is an innovative progressive meter reporting system that utilizes Optical Character Recognition (OCR) or Voice Recognition (VR) to capture progressive meter data. This advanced system reduces the excess resources that are currently allocated to daily progressive meter reads.

The MiC system offers an advanced solution by automating the gathering, recording and subsequent transmission of progressive values on slot machines.  Many regulatory agencies, as well as individual casinos' internal control procedures, require periodic "progressive meter readings," which could happen as regularly as daily.  MiC uses OCR technology, as well as VR technology to efficiently automate this manual process.  MiC can increase accuracy, reduce time to read progressive meters on the casino floor, and make values immediately available to slot/revenue auditors in real time. 

"We are very excited about the groundbreaking MiC system and are especially eager to introduce MiC to the North American marketplace. The MiC system is a pioneering product that not only streamlines the progressive meter reading process and improves overall reporting accuracy, but it also provides casinos extraordinary cost savings in comparison to the outdated methods of daily progressive meter reads," said Alex Dungan, CEO of PDS Gaming.

"Casino based technology has continued to evolve significantly and at a rapid pace.  Surprisingly, the antiquated process of reading progressive meters has not. The advanced MiC system provides a long-awaited and highly essential technological solution that casino operators have been wanting for many years," said Melissa Sweitzer, vice president of strategic accounts at PDS Gaming.
