Axis Communications today announced that Turning Stone Casino in New York has selected Axis network video products to improve their surveillance and security. Axis video servers and network cameras are being used to monitor the casino's new 21-story hotel, winter garden, restaurants, garages and exhibition hall. The order value for Axis in the first phase is about USD 200,000.

Turning Stone Casino recently expanded their campus adding over 1,000 new jobs and several new facilities. After maximizing the previously installed analog surveillance system, Turning Stone took advantage of their established network infrastructure by upgrading to an IP-based surveillance solution. Turning Stone combined Axis video servers and network cameras with Power over Ethernet (PoE) to provide round-the-clock surveillance.

"We chose Axis' IP surveillance system to best leverage our established network infrastructure while significantly improving our monitoring capabilities," said Jeffrey McGowan, systems engineer for Turning Stone Casino. "The combination of using an established network, PoE technology and a reduction in maintenance and installation fees has lead to a significant cost savings."

During the first phase of implementation, Turning Stone Casino installed a large number of network cameras. The second phase of the installation will include another 100 Axis network cameras equipped with PoE technology. PoE cameras provide customers with a security solution for leveraging network infrastructures, not bound by electric cabling limitations and cost.

Axis network cameras are being used in a variety of applications at Turning Stone Casino. In addition to monitoring hallways, parking garages and dining areas, the cameras are also being used to monitor the influx of people in high traffic areas. Video recording and management is done via software from Lenel Systems International. The system is also equipped with facial recognition software designed to spot unwanted guests.
