Foxwoods Installs Face Recognition System

5 October 2005

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Foxwoods Resort Casino, the largest Casino destination in the world has purchased and installed iView's iGWatchTM Facial Recognition System. The iGWatch System builds on the existing iTrakTM Incident Reporting Platform that has been deployed at Foxwoods since November of 2003. iView Systems is an EndX Group company and leading provider of security and surveillance solutions.

"Given the size of our facility and volume of patrons, we required an automated and proven system to link to our extensive CCTV installation, " said Timothy D. Bohr, surveillance director for the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, which owns and operates Foxwoods Resort Casino. "The seamless integration between the iTrak Incident Reporting Platform and the iGWatch Facial Recognition System provides the ability to enhance our subject and patron database searches, instantly narrowing down possible subjects from 1000's to one or more individuals in seconds."

"iView Systems is extremely proud that Foxwoods Resort Casino, the world's largest and most prestigious gaming facility, has chosen to add the iGWatch platform to their surveillance environment," said Martin Drew, president of iView Systems. "By adding the iGWatch Facial Recognition System to the proven iTrak Incident Reporting & Risk Management System, Foxwoods has firmly established itself as the state-of-the-art casino surveillance facility in the world."

"This project represents the next phase of a mutually rewarding relationship with the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation."
