Video surveillance in gaming machine halls

PG Enterprise AG puts its money on Axis cameras when ensuring strict compliance with regulations

“Synology and Axis Communications worked great together and made it possible to meet the tight deadline. After more than a year, we are still thrilled with the overall solution. Our employees appreciate the uncomplicated, intuitive handling of the system and the high image quality and wealth of setting options mean that even the difficult lighting conditions in our casinos are no problem.” Alexander Reithoffer of PR Enterprise AG.


The Austrian gaming machine operator PG Enterprise AG (PG) had to equip 16 sites with video surveillance that also served as media management within just a short span of time. In addition to the fast implementation, one of the main challenges was the difficult lighting conditions caused by the flickering gaming machines.


PG chose to use the Surveillance Station video management system by Synology with Axis cameras, which could be up and running within five months. Quick configuration of just a few minutes and simple operation were convincing factors for both management and the employees. Despite adverse lighting conditions, the cameras capture optimal HD-quality images for self-verification so that PG can always document in detail their strict compliance with regulations. They also deliver high-quality overview images for the company’s own security center.


PG installed a total of 250 cameras at 16 sites in the Austrian state of Styria. On average, each site has 16 cameras in use. Overview cameras that stream directly to the site’s security center were installed in each hall. In addition, each machine group (each made up of 3–6 gaming machines) is monitored separately in order to document changes to the machine for internal and regulatory supervision.
