CARPINTERIA, Calif., Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Synectic Systems, Inc. (Synectics), a leading developer and manufacturer of integrated digital recording systems, announced today that the Genting Group, a global entertainment and tourism company, has chosen a turnkey surveillance solution from Synectics for its new property, Resorts World Casino New York City . As Genting's first venture in North America and the first gaming property in the five boroughs of New York City, Resorts World New York is set to open late summer 2011 at the Aqueduct Racetrack, with a 400,000 square foot casino. At the opening, Resorts World will offer 2,280 video lottery terminals and 205 electronic table games, but will expand to over 5,000 gaming machines by the end of the year.

This initial Resorts World surveillance installation will record over 1,400 channels of 30FPS High-Definition IP video using Synectics' award-winning video management and integration platform, Synergy™.  John Medolla, Director of Surveillance for Resorts World New York, stated, "Synergy's flexible and user-friendly interface was the driving force behind Synectics being the system of choice for Resorts World New York. Also a major factor in the decision was Synectics' ability to create a cost-effective, all HD-IP digital recording solution–the first of its kind in North America."

Supported by a state-of-the-art Cisco IP infrastructure, the system installation is expected to be complete by October 2011. Video integration to the casino's point-of-sale cash register transactions through Synergy will further enhance the already robust feature set of Synectics' command and control video management platform.

John Katnic, COO, Synectics USA, added: "This is a monumental opportunity and partnership for Synectics. Installing one of the most advanced digital surveillance systems in the world (all-IP HD video) in the greatest city in the world (New York) for one of world's most successful gaming and hospitality companies (Genting Group) is a dream come true. "

Known for its reliability and flexibility, Synectics records over 50,000 cameras in over 60 casinos throughout North America, Canada and Europe, with an impressive 99.999% uptime performance record. The company's unique non-proprietary hardware and software enables existing legacy analogue systems to integrate with IP-based technology as well as third party applications to create a unified video management and security solution.
