The Choctaw Nation is the third largest Indian Nation in the U.S. and is comprised of over 175,000 Choctaws with their tribal complex located in Durant, Oklahoma. The Choctaw are a Sovereign Nation that maintains a special relationship with the U.S. and Oklahoma. The Choctaw Nation owns a large number of gaming casinos in Southeastern Oklahoma. The income from these casinos provides jobs, healthcare, educational programs, and community assistance to the tribal members.
Choctaw casinos began upgrading security in 2006, upgrading from analog cameras, direct link monitors and manual video tape recording to the latest high-resolution cameras, IP video networks and automated storage. These changes allowed the casinos to better protect their assets, customers and employees from theft, fraud and unfounded insurance claims.
To determine the best solution for their needs, the Choctaw Nation formed an internal committee to decide on a reliable and cost-effective video surveillance and storage solution. When the committee began researching IP cameras to upgrade existing gaming facilities and for new construction, they were looking for cameras which would fit their current surveillance systems, adapt to future changes, and meet the requirements of the Gaming Commission.
After much debate, the Choctaw Nation selected Genetec's fully integrated IP video management and access control solutions, Omnicast and Synergis. After an on-premise 'shoot-out' between several camera manufacturers, the Choctaw Nation chose IQeye HD Megapixel cameras to be deployed at key strategic locations throught the casinos.
Upon completion of a fourth casino site, over 1200 IQeye cameras will be installed at the Choctaw casinos. The cameras chosen include IQeye711s, Sentinels and Alliance Domes.
As Paula Penz, Gaming Commissioner for the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma explained, "We were interested in securing the best technology possible to accomplish our goals, and to allow for future growth and expansoin."
- With more than 1200 HD Megapixel IQeye cameras and growing, the Choctaw Nation casinos represent one of IQinVision's largest and most successful casino applications.
- Employee theft can seriously impact the bottom line, however soon after system deployment staff swiftly recognized a decrease of incidents allowing casino security directors to report a measurable return on investment from their video surveillance system to the Choctaw Governing Council.
- Choctaw security staff value the IQeye's low-light performance to cover gaming tables. When researching cameras, casino management did side-by-side camera comparisons, but no camera could measure up to the IQeye's lightgrabber performance.
