The manager for security at Sun City Casino has spoken about the many advantages of using the new Dallmeier Panomera W8 camera on the casino floor at one of South Africa’s oldest and most renowned land-based casinos.
According to Hendrik Strauss, Resort Security and Surveillance Manager for Sun City Casino, excellent surveillance equipment for large indoor areas is one of the basic elements required to run a secure operation.
The Panomera W8 camera combines images from eight different sensors, offering a high-resolution, distortion-free 360 degrees overview image of the large area on one single screen.
Another feature enjoyed by casino security operators is that any number of operators can zoom into a scene at the same time; however, the overview image is always retained in the recording and live. This ensures that no important information is ever lost. There is also no problem of having blind spot because the cameras also display the area that is located directly under the camera in HD.
The system also has another important benefit – it uses significantly fewer cameras so there is less complexity and less infrastructure involved. There is the need for fewer ports and cables, and less installation works, less maintenance, and less vulnerability to cyber-attacks.
These are important issues that casino security officers need to take into account when choosing the right equipment for the space they are required to secure.
“Thanks to the Dallmeier Panomera W8 camera, we need considerably fewer camera systems on the gaming floor,” said Strauss.
“Each camera offers a unique, dewarped 360 degree overview. In the overview, an unlimited number of detailed views can be opened with a mouse click. This helps us massively improve our response times, and track incidents and persons of interest more efficiently and reliably.”
This offer is available until August 31st, 2022.
