A wide range of megapixel cameras are available to fit the specific functional needs of gaming facilities. Whether indoors or outdoors, from compact box cameras to all-in-one bullet-style cameras to panoramic dome solutions, system designers have the megapixel imaging tools they need for any site application.
Just as important as their performance is the cost effectiveness of megapixel cameras. For example, where 10 standard-resolution cameras might have previously been required to cover a parking lot, the same application can now be served using three or four strategically-positioned 3-megapixel cameras or even a single 8- or 20-megapixel panoramic camera, depending on the customer's requirements.
In these parking areas, the superior resolution of megapixel cameras allows operators to identify people and license plate numbers. Megapixel cameras can consistently provide the highest possible safety level for gaming operators. Better image quality also increases the value and accuracy of License Plate Recognition (LPR) analytics technologies, which can be applied at parking lot entrances and exits on any megapixel camera with great results.
Arecont Vision panoramic cameras can replace mechanical pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras in the surveillance of a large lobby area with a single camera. PTZ cameras have mechanical liabilities as well as one major practical liability, which is that the camera can only look in one direction at a time. Panoramic 180-degree cameras provide a wider field of view and 360-degree cameras can look in all directions all the time, providing the detail that gaming resorts need to deter, identify and prosecute. Whether viewing a parking lot or a casino floor, a mechanical PTZ camera can only watch one of multiple fields-of-view it surveys at a time. That leaves the majority of fields-of-view without coverage, and covering those additional fields with additional cameras increases costs. Megapixel panoramic (multi-imager) cameras capture the entire scene, all the time, to provide excellent situational awareness. Users can zoom in on any area of the image, live or on recorded video without losing valuable data from the entire captured scene.
This capability is unique to megapixel cameras.
Megapixel IP cameras provide the resolution and clarity required for forensic examination and prosecutable evidence, including cash denominations and license plate numbers, reducing the manpower needed to monitor live video and shortening the time needed to locate crime on the recorded video.
Compliance and Performance
Beyond the ability to comply with regulations, the superior performance of megapixel cameras fits a variety of demanding needs in the gaming environment. Our sales people frequently meet with gaming professionals who are used to seeing the dark, grainy images from analog and VGA IP cameras. When these customers see megapixel IP images at frame rates even lower than 25fps, they think they are looking at real-time video because the clarity and detail is so much better. To be able to guarantee that image quality at 25fps/30fps using our Casino Mode provides the assurance casino operators need to run their businesses. In the gaming environment, it‘s a clear game-changer.
