The metropolitan police have secured a conviction of two poker cheats with the help of footage from FASTAR Digital Evidence Recorders from Visimetrics
DVR footage helps convict casino cheats
Footage from Visimetrics FASTAR Digital Evidence Recorders has been used by the Metropolitan Police's Clubs and Vice Unit to assist in the recent conviction of two Poker cheats, who were arrested in May 2009 at the London Clubs Casino at the Empire, Leicester Square.

During two visits to the Casino, a total of 7 cheat moves were noted by surveillance staff and also recorded by the FASTAR DER. Real Time footage from both fixed and PTZ cameras was handed to the police on movie format DVD, extracted directly from the recorders. The footage was shown to the suspects during interview and both subsequently pleaded guilty to cheating at gambling when they appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court in June.

Doug Reeman, London Clubs Head of Security comments "the clarity of the images we obtained from FASTAR undoubtedly contributed to the guilty pleas entered, and underlines the efficacy of both the surveillance team and the technology that backs them up".

The Visimetrics FASTAR Digital Evidence Recorder is in use by various Casino operators and this is the first ever conviction for this offence under the Gambling Act 2005, to be obtained in the UK.
