Keeping a full house safe at Gala Bingo Club

5 Feb 2016

The newest addition to Southampton’s leisure scene has been equipped with a future proof IP Network video surveillance system that takes advantage of the latest generation of Open Platform technology.   

 

Samsung Techwin Europe has supplied 35 Samsung Open Platform WiseNetIII Full HD cameras to ensure that the club’s customers can enjoy playing bingo in a totally secure and safe environment.

Although Gala Bingo has an ongoing programme to refurbish and update its’ clubs throughout the UK, the Southampton club is the first new build that the company has opened for some years. Gala Bingo has invested over £5M in the new club which is located at Antelope Park in the Thornhill district of Southampton. It is a clear sign that the company has confidence in an industry that has been struggling in recent years and that it intends to continue to expand its business by providing the best possible environments for its customers to enjoy the social aspects of playing bingo.

 

New Experience

The club offers players a new bingo experience with two distinct areas to play; Bingo Club and Bingo Pub. The Bingo Club is aimed at traditional bingo players who want to get their eyes down and focus on the numbers, whilst The Bingo Pub is a more relaxed area for players who like to chat and relax whilst still playing the same bingo games in a more informal way. 

“We were confident that the new club would be a great success from day one and particularly so as it is designed to appeal to a wide audience,” said Kevin Willis, Risk Manager for Gala Bingo. “In addition to the need to comply with local authority licensing requirements, we considered it essential therefore to provide the club’s management and our security colleagues with the best possible tools to ensure that players are kept safe.”

 System Design

The contract to install the video surveillance system was awarded to Nottinghamshire based Link Integrated Security Services Ltd, a Silver Partner of the Samsung STEP (Samsung Techwin Eco Partnership) programme which has been introduced to provide Samsung Techwin Europe’s network of sales channel partners with the resources and tools to help them increase their share of the IP network based solutions market.

 Link Integrated Security Services Ltd worked closely with Samsung Techwin Europe to design a solution which would cover all the public areas without having a negative impact on aesthetics of the brand new club.The WiseNetIII camera models installed by Link Integrated Security Services Ltd at the club include SND-6084 2MP domes as well as SNO-6084R bullet cameras which have built-in IR LEDs to ensure high quality images can be captured in low lit areas of the club.

 Open Platform

The cameras are able to take advantage of the high performance WiseNetIII DSP chipset which has the processing power to simultaneously run multiple edge based applications. This provides Gala Bingo with the opportunity to utilise specialist onboard video analytics applications, such as people counting and heat mapping.

 A number of SNF-7010 3MP 360 degree fisheye cameras have also been installed to cover areas of the club where a much larger number of fixed cameras might normally be required, to avoid any blind spots.

 The images captured by the cameras are being recorded onto a Samsung SRN-4000 Network Video Recorder (NVR) which provides a highly resilient, low maintenance recording solution. Its features include a built-in RAID hard drive ‘Hot Swap’ facility which ensures that recording is not interrupted if a fault occurs. Voted  CCTV Product of the Year 2015 by the readers of PSI Magazine, the SRN-4000 can handle the images from up to 64 cameras and so provides the ability for additional cameras to be installed at the club should there be a requirement to do so in the future.

 Link Integrated Security Services also installed Samsung Smart Viewer software to allow authorised users, such as Kevin Willis, to remotely monitor and manage the images captured by the 35 cameras.

 Success

“I cannot praise more highly the pre- and post sales support that I received from the Link Integrated Security Services Ltd and Samsung Techwin Europe teams,“ said Kevin Willis. “Their combined technical expertise has ensured that our new club in Southampton has a video surveillance system that is more than just fit for purpose. Although the club has only been open for a short period, the system has already proved its value in terms of providing peace of mind that we have access to superb quality images should an emergency occur or an incident need investigating.”
