A casino in northern Italy is using equipment made by Ottawa-based March Networks Corp. to keep an eye on its gamblers.
Casino de la Vallee, located about 150 km west of Milan in Saint-Vincent, Valle D’Aosta, has more than 380 of March Networks’ VideoSphere cameras, plus Video Management Software (VMS) and a control room application.
Using March Networks products, the casino monitors its gaming tables and slot machines and can archive video content. March Networks stated in a press release that Casino de la Vallee uses two types of cameras from its VideoSphere product line.
The MegaPX 720p, which have 10/100 Megabit per second (Mbps) Ethernet interfaces, send high-res footage at up to 30 frames per second, using the H.264 video compression technology. The MicroDome pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera, which is ruggedized, is designed to withstand dust. March Networks says both cameras include power over Ethernet. They also have redundant storage in case the network goes down.
March Networks says users can configure transmission algorithms on the MegaPX cameras based on the bandwidth available, whether it's a 2-Mbps fixed connection, or a wireless cellular network.
