ally Technologies has recently introduced its iVIEW DM at its annual Systems User Conference in Las Vegas. The new technology will allow gaming operators to present systems content on the displays of all manufacturers’ gaming machines through the iVIEW processor rather than the game processor.
Communicating through the game processor would require separate regulatory approvals and complex development and integration efforts. With Bally’s iVIEW DM, gaming operators will be able to create picture-in-picture capability on the iVIEW display, the main game display, the second game display, or any game display associated with the device.
This is a significant benefit to gaming operators because they will not have to make any modifications to their existing games or purchase new games to implement this technology across any manufacturer’s games. In addition, Bally’s technology allows operators to implement new systems features and technology easier and quicker, including Cash System’s powercash.
“We are very excited about Bally’s iVIEW Display Manager as it gives us the capability to introduce powercash to a larger potential universe of customers more quickly than we previously expected," said Michael Rumbolz, CEO of Cash Systems.
“iVIEW Display Manager not only allows customers to leverage existing game displays, but gives them the capacity to implement robust features like powercash to a casino floor in a seamless fashion," said Richard Haddrill, CEO of Bally Technologies.
In conjunction with technologies enabled through iVIEW Content Manager (CM) and Bally Power Bonusing products displayed through iVIEW DM, gaming operators can choose where on the game they want to display things like powercash related data and any other systems content.
Bally, which has filed a provisional patent application on this technology concept, plans to begin its first live field trials of iVIEW DM with multiple customers as early as September 2008.
