Vix Vizion picks Cradlepoint to connect face recognition devices


Vix Vizion has adopted Cradlepoint wireless network systems and remote cloud management to connect the company's face recognition devices in South Australian pubs, clubs and casinos.

As previously reported, more than 80% of pubs and licensed clubs in South Australia have adopted Vix Vizion's Imagus face recognition technology.

The company plans to provide similar systems in other states.

The South Australian scheme involves a government-managed list of excluded people, so stand-alone face recognition is not appropriate.

"We had several critical capabilities that our wireless network solution must meet to support our facial recognition devices. It must be robust, bullet-proof secure, with the ability to access each machine from anywhere. We got it all from Cradlepoint and LTE," said Vix Vizion product and channel manager Fraser Larcombe.

"Through NetCloud, our back-office is connected to every one of our facial recognition devices that are fitted with a Cradlepoint router, enabling us to monitor the devices 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

"When a device or a whole venue loses its hardwired Internet connection, the Cradlepoint router automatically switches to 4G connectivity, enabling continual remote access to and management of the machines and ensuring that devices remain online without losing the ability to meet state regulatory requirements."

Cradlepoint APAC managing director Gavin Wilson said "We applaud the South Australian government's initiative to use technology to protect communities. As technology infuses every aspect of our lives, including gaming, it's important to leverage technology to help ensure the safety and support of people in need.

"Cradlepoint is proud to play a role in helping to curb gambling access for banned individuals across South Australia by providing secure and reliable wireless connectivity for Vix Vizion facial recognition machines across many sites."
