Casino video surveillance pioneer Dallmeier received the “Best New Product” award at the World Game Protection Conference (WGPC) 2019 in Las Vegas in March 2019. A committee selected Dallmeier’s “Casino Automation Technology” (CAT) for this prestigious honour. CAT is a solution that combines artificial intelligence (AI) and video technology to optimise the management of table games such as Baccarat or Blackjack.
Dallmeier’s Casino Automation Technology (CAT) is the first gaming automation system that is already live in a productive environment with the biggest installation of more than 1,000 tables in Macau. It is currently available for Baccarat and Blackjack and uses AI technologies and standard Full-HD IP cameras to recognize chips and cards, provide real-time information about bet position and bet value, game pace, float value, etc. CAT allows for a highly increased game pace, a much more effective protection from fraud and an accurate player rating, to name just a few key functionalities.
Joe McDevitt, president of Dallmeier USA, states: “We are very happy about the “Best New Product” award – it is more evidence we are heading in the absolute right direction with our innovative combination of existing video technology and artificial intelligence applications. The solution revolutionizes the way casinos will manage their table games in the future. From interfacing with the smart dealing shoe to the automatic detection if a table is losing money to a much more sophisticated and accurate player rating – CAT provides casinos with a variety of functions that considerably increase pace of play while at the same time improving security and providing a treasure of data for marketing.”
