Video Surveillance Pioneer RemoteReality Moves Into the Gaming Industry


WESTBOROUGH, Mass. - RemoteReality Corporation, the designer and manufacturer of intelligent-omni-video systems with real-time 360-degree viewing and analysis software for continuous surveillance, is teaming with premier systems integrator North American Video (NAV) to develop enhanced security products for the gaming industry in North America.

RemoteReality and NAV, recognized throughout the security industry for its innovative and comprehensive integrated solutions and technology optimization, have signed a letter of intent to establish a joint marketing, product development and exclusive value added reseller (VAR) partnership for the gaming industry in North America.

Under the letter of intent, the companies will work to clearly define 360-degree surveillance product specifications for development of products that NAV will privately brand, market and sell to the gaming industry in North America.

“Casino operators need 21st-century intelligent surveillance technology to keep an eye on everything from advantaged players to shopping malls and parking lots,” said Dr. James Ionson, CEO of RemoteReality. “Our seamless 360-degree high-resolution video with intelligent awareness can zero-in on persons or objects of interest while an entire area remains under total surveillance,” continued Dr. Ionson, whose 30-year career includes being head of research for Polaroid and has largely centered on imaging technologies, for which he has authored a number of patents.

“RemoteReality’s next-generation omni-imaging systems will greatly enhance North American Video’s surveillance integration and coverage capabilities while applying advanced analytics,” said NAV President Cynthia Freschi. “The ability to create a visually secure 360-degree area using a single high-performance camera lends itself to myriad security applications for gaming and casino facilities.

“We have been seriously looking for ways to enhance security solutions and believe that RemoteReality has the technology to take us to a new level,” she added. “We will be actively pursuing input from our gaming clients as we explore different ways to configure RemoteReality’s unique camera technology for security applications.”

RemoteReality, which has been supporting military and government markets, has relationships with systems integrators, value added resellers and other technology companies with complementary add-on products that can be bundled into solutions to solve specific customer needs. The company also is working with OEM customers to design and build indoor and outdoor camera systems. To date, the company has received more than $6 million in development contracts and research grants from DARPA, the U.S. Marine Corps, the Office of Naval Research and other Department of Defense groups.
