hat products did the company showcase at G2E Asia this year?
The main products we displayed were our new high definition (HD) camera range and our new digital matrix GUI, SeMSy III. The HD camera offers five times the resolution as standard, greater light sensitivity, yet still has a highly efficient compression to minimise disc space. SeMSy III has many user interface enhancements, allowing operators even greater ability to monitor gaming and protect their assets.
How did you see the show this year? Was it in line with your expectations?
This year's show exceeded our expectations. This show goes beyond the Macau market, and attracts interests from casinos all over Asia and Oceania.
After a difficult 2009 for Macau, it showed positive figures during the first months of this year. How do yo analyze the the current situation of the market?
China's visa restrictions to Macau have relaxed, and record numbers are once again pouring into Macau from mainland China. One only has to see the huge expansion at the Venetian casino to see the future of Macau.

The result is dollars saved and protected.
How important is the Asian market for Dallmeier in the company's global strategy?
