s G2E Asia tailors its conference to address the challenges facing the casino industry in today's economic climate, GPI will be introducing new products designed to assist casino customers to strengthen their bottom lines, either by cutting costs or eliminating risk and increasing security.
GPI will be showcasing its newest development in RFID readers and application software for casinos. Complementing GPI's existing line of RFID technology available in both 125 KHz and 13.56 MHz frequencies, the new readers and application software facilitate improved security of casino currency, increased speed of play and the elimination of error in chip counts and calculations. For the first time at G2E Asia, GPI will feature live demonstrations of its RFID technologies at work, highlighting the benefits for chip authenticity verification, tracking and inventorying.
GPI will also be introducing its eReady gaming tables, designed and built especially to accommodate the electronic equipment that is increasingly required on gaming tables. The eReady table design allows for ventilation and cooling of electronic equipment, elimination of signal interference of RFID transmitters and specially-built areas for shufflers and bill validators that are ergonomically placed for dealer convenience and comfort.
"With the growing use of RFID technology for chip verification and tracking, today's gaming tables require more electronic equipment to be installed in them," commented Gerard Charlier, CEO and President of GPI. "Drawing upon our extensive furniture manufacturing experience as well as our pioneering efforts in developing RFID technology, GPI has developed an innovative and unique design that will allow the electronic equipment to perform at its fullest potential, while maintaining the beauty and function of our gaming tables."
Also being showcased this year is GPI's newest line of playing cards, called the PSV Series. This new line features a unique paper formulation produced exclusively for GPI and designed to provide an economical yet quality addition to its existing line of premium playing cards, the Paulson(R) series.
"Players, dealers and shuffling machines can put a lot of wear and tear on a deck of playing cards. With the casinos facing tough economic challenges everyday, replacing these cards on a daily basis can add up. The PSV Series is designed with value in mind," stated Gregory S. Gronau, Executive VP and COO of GPI. "Specially developed for use on high-traffic games or in shufflers, the PSV Series offers the design and quality of our premium Paulson series of cards with a slightly lighter paper weight and less cost. That translates to more value per deck for our customers."
The PSV Series of playing cards are available in single decks, as well as pre-shuffled blocks of 8, 10, and 12 decks. Along with these new products, GPI will also present its popular lines of casino chips, plaques and jetons, dice, layouts, gaming tables and accessories.
