he new orders are part of a 7-digit casino upgrade project that CNE initiated last year to replace various video surveillance systems and standardize on NICE's IP-capable video surveillance technology. The upgrade orders were received through NICE partner IK Systems Inc (Victor, New York), the system integrator for the CNE project.
Cherokee Nation Entertainment, a major casino operator in Oklahoma, is transitioning to IP and megapixel cameras in addition to video surveillance technology capable of supporting its various casino environments and enabling a smooth IP migration.
CNE's NICE solution, which includes NiceVision Net IP, Network Video Recorders (NVRs), encoders, and a NICE Virtual Matrix for video management, is currently being installed at two CNE casinos - the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa, and the Cherokee Casino West Siloam Springs casino which utilizes one hundred percent megapixel and IP cameras.
Combined, the two properties have in excess of 1,600 analog, IP and megapixel cameras which will all be managed and recorded using the new NICE video surveillance technology. "After testing many different software packages we felt that NICE was the best solution for our environment," said Brandon Hill, Senior Manager of Corporate Surveillance for CNE.
"Converting to NICE allows us to narrow our software packages to a single operating unit company wide. From our very large properties to our smaller properties, NICE is able to adapt to our various needs, offering the best solution. We appreciate the support we receive with the NICE technology, the user friendliness that it offers, and the adaptability of the NICE security solutions to our individual property demands."
"We are very pleased that Cherokee Nation Entertainment decided to standardize on our IP-capable video surveillance solutions. CNE joins the ranks of the hundreds of casinos worldwide that have entrusted NICE for their surveillance and security needs," said Chris Wooten, President, Security Division Americas, NICE.
"Upgrading to NICE Systems' NiceVision solution will afford CNE the benefit of leveraging its existing investments while making the transition to megapixel and IP," Wooten added.
