Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Kalamba Games has signed a partnership agreement that will see the integration of its full library of slots with Gaming Innovation Group’s (GiG) platform, significantly expanding its distribution potential.

The deal will see GiG’s operator partners gain access to Kalamba’s portfolio of over 50 titles as well as its suite of engagement and promotional tools, through a direct integration with the supplier’s BullsEye RGS. Top-performing titles of note will include Blazing Bull 2, Ducks Till Dawn, Caribbean Anne 2 and Holmes: Reel Detective, as well as the supplier’s popular series of Joker games and recent releases.

This agreement is the latest in a string of commercial developments that have seen Kalamba partner with tier-one industry establishments as the studio continues to strengthen its standing in the sector across key regulated markets.

Kalamba is now certified or licensed in key markets such as MGA, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Sweden and its content is available with a growing number of operators.

Andrew Crosby, Chief Commercial Officer at Kalamba Games, said: “Shaking hands with another major player in GiG is a reflection of the strides we’ve made as a company in recent years.

“This level of commercial activity is exactly where we’ve always had our sights set and it’s allowing us to spread our content message even further. We’re delighted with the potential the partnership offers us.”

Martin Collins, Director of Sales and Business Development at GiG, said: “With Kalamba’s games being among the most well-received in the industry, this is exactly the type of content we strive to provide on our platform. It helps us, as a company, to drive new business growth and so of course we’re looking forward to seeing its impact.”

Kinetix Announces New AI Features

Kinetix, the AI startup bringing emotes to video games and virtual worlds, announced major advances in the generative AI technology powering its platform; including an updated AI model for motion extraction from videos, and an AI tool that applies a predefined motion to any animation in one click.

Traditionally, 3D animation has been an expensive and time-consuming process involving trained 3D experts, and specialist software and hardware. This is no different for emotes – animations that express emotion – which Kinetix is best known for pioneering. Its video-to-animation AI and no-code editing tools streamline the process for professionals such as game developers, and open up the creation of 3D animations to anyone. Kinetix emotes can be used with any avatar, within any video game or virtual world.

The new Kinetix tools have been released as part of version 2.0 of the Kinetix platform and feature a new generation of algorithms for motion extraction from videos, creating better results in terms of posture, translations, and grounding. The second key element is style transfer filters, an AI tool that applies a predefined motion to any animation, enabling users to create more expressive emotes. The first style transfer filters available are “Robot” and “Drunk” – animations which need little explanation – and the library of filters will be constantly added to.

Henri Mirande, CTO and co-founder at Kinetix, said: “With so much debate recently on generative AI’s potential to streamline and democratize creative processes, we’re proud to announce these advances in our custom AI model. They mean that we can now more accurately extract complex motions from video content – such as backflips, parkour, or sprinting up a flight of stairs. We have also found that a large number of our users enjoy creating animations from a pre-existing library rather than uploading their own videos. Our AI-powered style transfer filters can be used to enhance both custom-generated and stock animations, adding more fun and humor into the mix.”

Dallmeier Shortlisted for the European Casino Awards 2023

Dallmeier, an expert in video technology for casinos, has been shortlisted in two categories for the upcoming European Casino Awards 2023, its Panomera W8 360° cameras as “Best new innovative product” and Casino Automation Technology CAT as “Best table gaming product”.

The Panomera W8 is a 360° camera with 4K resolution ensuring complete 360° coverage without a “blind spot” below the camera. Six sensors are arranged in a circle, a seventh sensor covers the overall scene and an eighth sensor captures the blind spot below the camera. From these eight images, the software then stitches a complete image of the half-sphere around the camera location that has been captured without gaps. Within this overview image, multiple operators can open any number of detail areas with a mouse-click and zoom in and move around in these areas as if it was a PTZ cam.

Casino operators who use such systems report that they regularly reduce the time needed from the detection of an incident to the resolution – e.g., by catching an offender – by a factor of up to 10 or more.

Furthermore, the overall costs for monitoring the gaming floor are reduced. Although the costs per camera are higher than a PTZ system, far fewer cameras need to be installed. The resulting savings in installation, infrastructure, and maintenance as well as in operation itself outweigh the additional costs for the cameras themselves.
