Following an intensive product evaluation, Visimetrics' FASTAR range of digital video recorders have been installed in ‘The Casino' at Portomaso, Malta. Forming the core of the surveillance system designed by casino integrator, Correct Termination, FASTAR records all video and audio content for both gaming and non-gaming surveillance.
The solution utilises FASTAR's flexibility of storage modes. All gaming cameras are recorded by FASTAR Encoders with data being streamed to external network attached storage systems for full data redundancy via RAID5 configurations. Non-gaming cameras are recorded to the internal disks of each FASTAR Server providing an optimum storage solution to achieve the required quality and recording period.
FASTAR uses the highly robust Linux operating system to provide up to 8 channels of Video and Audio Recording within a 1U high physical footprint. Individual quality settings per channel ensure a fully refined system based on the scene activity of each camera. Image export when required can also include transfer of footage to Movie DVD, playable in any entry-level DVD player.
‘The Casino' is the premier gaming location on the island of Malta. Owned and operated by the Tumas Group, Malta's foremost investor in the hospitality and leisure sector, ‘The Casino' forms an integral part of the inspiring waterfront development of Portomaso.
