s a key development in server-based gaming, the company will present its ability to convert legacy gaming machines into a "downloadable" system, simply by using an upgrade kit, enabling significant benefits. Designed to add new value to existing machines, this "Refresh Technology" enables a wide array of the key functions of a Cyberview server-based, downloadable gaming system at a low cost.
Among other new ground-breaking products at the stand will be the company's next generation Fixed Odds Betting Terminal (FOBT) and IVT. An ergonomic, high tech player interface with dual-screen display, the new "LARA" FOBTs have already been ordered by Ladbrokes, the UK's largest bookmaker, with 7,000 to be installed by April 2007. For the video lottery market, the company will be demonstrating its Secure Interactive Video Lottery Terminal (SIVT).
The SIVT is a robust and secure gaming system for street operations where the RNG is inside the terminal, enabling operation in environments such as developing countries where telecommunication may be an issue, and also enhancing the security of the system in road operations.
Also to be showcased will be the company's Remote Diagnostic Application (RDA) which allows operators to solve gaming machine problems centrally throughout their estate without leaving their desks. AT ICE 2007, the RDA will be presented an award by the industry's annual Gaming & Technology Awards program, marking the third year in a row that the company has received industry acknowledgment for excellence in innovation and practical application.
Previous awards were for the company's "Game Activation Scheduler" in 2006 and for its complete server-based, downloadable gaming system in 2005. Additional unique server-based applications will include the Cyberview Dynamic Game Library (DGL) and the Game Development Tool Kit (GDK). Rounding out the company's largest range ever of new introductions will be its new Virtual Racing system.
