Las Vegas Treasure Island Hotel and Casino Gets A Security Upgrade

Surveillance Systems Integration (SSI) recently announced the completion of a comprehensive overhaul and update of the Treasure Island Hotel & Casino surveillance and security infrastructure throughout the Las Vegas resort property. The casino project, awarded to SSI, was a multi-phase project covering a 10-month period that included equipping Treasure Island with the innovative Pelco Endura 2.0 video management system, completely designed and installed by SSI.  The Endura video management system is comprised of digital recording and a virtual matrix to monitor and record up to 1400 channels of video thought the property.
 
“With specific requests, restrictions and needs in mind, SSI developed a digital system solution to maximize the limited and existing space in Treasure Island,” said Todd Flowers, president of SSI. “We were the only integrator that detailed a firm plan and strategy that increased both the security and surveillance department’s workspace and placed them on the cutting edge of the latest in security technology.”
 
The system has now been installed and is being used with Treasure Island reporting an increase in security and operations efficiency. Among the various renovations, one highlight is that all cameras will record and data will be retained for a minimum of seven days, using the latest in digital camera and recording equipment. The casino resort upgraded its legacy analog VCR and matrix system to a state-of-the-art digital recording and virtual matrix system, Pelco Endura 2.0, which included upgrades to the facility’s existing surveillance and security observation rooms with new operator consoles and video walls. The innovative Pelco Endura 2.0 Virtual Matrix Switch allows the security operator to control cameras, call up video and perform live tracking of people and events much like the traditional matrix, but without the additional space needed to house traditional matrix hardware. The new system is also future-proofed as the infr astructure for future expansions has also been created, which will allow the casino to phase out other existing analog cameras for IP-based, high definition cameras.
 
“Treasure Island has the first and only fully functional virtual matrix switch on the Las Vegas strip,” said Rick Phan, business development manager for SSI. “We wanted Treasure Island to stand above the competition and they have made a significant investment in the Pelco system that will meet their needs for years to come, including the switch to high definition megapixel cameras.”
 
In accepting the project, SSI was given a firm budget to work with, but was able to finish the project within budget, without any additional costs or change orders. This highlights another one of SSI’s strengths – its ability to plan and integrate the system efficiently and in line with the constraints and needs of customers, to not only meet, but exceed expectations of its clients.
 
“Treasure Island was faced with some very unique challenges for system upgrades, and  Bill Young, SSI’s project manager, was able to offer a detailed plan of how they could combine existing resources while still providing a world class system that would meet our needs today and in the future,” said Kim Smith, Director of Surveillance for Treasure Island Hotel & Casino.“We handed SSI a very difficult set of circumstances as well as budget requests, and to our surprise, they not only met each challenge, but SSI exceeded expectations in their design, budget and use of the latest technology, such as Pelco, in our system – we know this investment will last for years to come.”
