hat are your expectations and objectives for G2E Las Vegas?
We will be launching two new boards in our highly successful and versatile DPX S Series range. The DPX-S415 and DPX-S425 offer existing customers a springboard to newer, higher performance technology. The new boards are backwards compatible with the existing DPX-S410 both mechanically and at the software interface level too. This makes it easy for customers to port games from the DPX-S410 to the new boards. For new customers, the new products provide a leading edge platform on which to base their new products. This is a truly world-premiere presentation of the new boards, so we do expect a lot of interest for both existing and new potential customers.
 
Furthermore, Innocore gaming has been aquired this month by the leading industrial PC supplier; Taiwan based Advantech Co., Ltd. The newly formed business unit, Advantech-Innocore, will focus its extensive combined resources on the Global Gaming Industry to provide an unrivalled product range, sales force and customer service team.

We are delighted and very proud to announce this monumental development in Innocore’s history. Innocore has had 4 years of consecutive sales growth, since the management buy-out in 2006, providing specialist hardware and dedicated software to the gaming industry. 

We see this merger as a significant event that creates the single largest, most capable and effective supplier to the gaming industry.  Advantech is undoubtedly the most successful Industrial PC Company with phenomenal strengths in R&D, manufacturing and worldwide sales.  Innocore with its specialist industry knowledge will bring those strengths to the gaming industry.

As part of Advantech-Innocore we can do things that we only dreamed of in the past.  The combined engineering R&D team, of more than 600 people, will allow us to expand and accelerate our product roadmap as well as take on limitless custom projects.  We are looking forward to seeing many of our customers at G2E to introduce the new company”
