Casino Surveillance Presentation at IFSEC

Synectics : 30 April, 2010  (Technical Article)
Personnel from Synectics wil be presenting at IFSEC in Birmingham on the integration of video and data to produce the latest methods of casino surveillance
Two of Synectic Systems Group's key executives, David Aindow and John Katnic, will be featured panel speakers at one of the security industry's biggest events, IFSEC 2010 , held 10-13th of May at the Birmingham NEC. Aindow and Katnic will participate in a panel discussion entitled 'Dataveillance: The New Breed of Casino Surveillance' on Tuesday, 11th May, 1:45 a.m. - 2:15 p.m., in Hall 4 Seminar Theatre.

Successful integration of third party systems to video surveillance enables a growing array of integrated video/data driven tools referred to as 'Dataveillance.' Advanced video management system functions can now combine 'data events' from multiple alarm and transactional systems and initiate customised 'situation management' alarms and processes. For example, if a point-of-sale refund is issued but the counting system detects no one in line, a food and beverage alert is displayed. Or, if two people clock in, but just one person passes through the entryway, a suspicious HR event is triggered. In a casino scenario, if a player's buy in is less than three percent of the total amount played over an hour period, operators are advised of a potential 'comp' scam. The convergence of video and third party data via Dataveillance creates an enterprise-wide relational database environment that elevates the ability to miti-gate security threats while it extends productivity and financial returns beyond the security department across the entire organisation.

The professionals participating in the IFSEC Dataveillance panel represent a collaborative team of solution manufacturers and software providers that are shaping the development and implementation for Dataveillance in the security industry. Together, they will explore the value of this exciting new initiative and present highlights of Dataveillance development application and implementation strategies.

The panel will be led by Moderator David Shepherd, Company Security Manager for EDF Energy. David Aindow, Business Development Director for Synectics Security Networks in the UK, is responsible for developing new business channels and relationships, management and direction of sales and new technology initiatives. John Katnic, COO of Synectics, is responsible for directing and managing the company's North American business division.

Joining Mr Aindow and Mr Katnic on the panel will be Brian Baker, Vice President of Sales and Service for ObjectVideo, a leading provider of intelligent video software for security, public safety, business intelligence, process improvement, and other applications.

Synectics continues to be an innovator in the video surveillance market. The company is ushering in a new era of more intelligent surveillance solutions with the inception of Dataveillance. Surveillance departments will now be able to create custom analytics to generate situational management alarms and processes that will not only mitigate events that otherwise would go unnoticed, but will positively impact revenue generation throughout business enterprise environments.

''Data convergence' and 'open systems' are more than buzzwords. They're inevitable surveillance realities loaded with potential technical risks and financial rewards,' said David Aindow of Synectics. 'For the first time, combining and correlating data/video from multiple IP-based systems is feasible and justifiable. Sophisticated video systems will continue to provide vital visual evidence, but Dataveillance will give surveillance operators an additional investigative tool to safeguard against 'invisible' problems buried in the data.'
