ICU and Spectral technology take centre stage at EAG 2020
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The gaming exhibition calendar for 2020 kick starts with EAG in London which takes place on 14 – 16 January 2020 at the ExCeL convention centre.  Leaders in cash validation, Innovative Technology, plan to have their latest Spectral Technology products and ICU age verification device centre stage on the stand.

Andy Bullock, Senior Business Manager commented, “EAG provides a platform for us to showcase new and exciting products and essentially launches our exhibition plan for 2020.  This year we will be focussing on showing EAG visitors the advantages of using Spectral Technology when validating and recycling cash. We are looking forward to showcasing our new Spectral Payout recycler ideal for high volume applications requiring multi-denomination recycling at fast speeds.  This advanced version of the SMART Payout offers a huge 80 note recycling capacity and can store and recycle all denominations from a given currency helping to manage float levels more efficiently and keep machines operational. Using Spectral Technology, it has the added benefit of offering complete note image capture (highest spectral coverage) to authenticate banknote validity and protect against fraudulent and stained notes.”

Andy continued, “The NV9 Spectral is also now gaining momentum in the gaming and amusement industry and customers are eager to extend their recycling capabilities by adding a compatible note float module (NV11 Spectral). This gives a fast and secure means of note recycling to ensure float levels and downtime are reduced. Installing this unit in conjunction with the SMART Coin System (SCS) – a bulk coin validator, mixed coin hopper and recycler in one, results in fast, multi-denomination recycling for both notes and coins.  The SCS has a market leading coin hopper capacity with payout speeds of up to 12 coins per second, eliminating coin starvation, the need for multiple hoppers and improving cashflow.”

“Since the introduction of ICU age verification earlier in the year we have been developing this product to include facial recognition technology and look forward to demoing this to the industry at EAG. These new features use facial recognition to identify those who have willingly self-excluded or have been excluded.  Supporting responsible gambling is imperative for the gaming industry and should be a key part of any corporate social responsibility policy. ICU can help ensure compliance with age restrictions to safeguard children and prevent underage gambling plus provide easy implementation of the self-exclusion scheme.”

ICU boasts a high level of accuracy with a proven 96% success rate in detecting under 18’s and compared to a human accuracy rate of 69% it outperforms humans across all age ranges. ICU is also listed in first place (99.8% accuracy) on the Labeled Faces in the Wild (http://vis-www.cs.umass.edu/lfw/) – a public benchmark for face verification.  It uses artificial intelligence and ITL’s own algorithms to recognise faces and verify age.

Concluding Andy said, “We are looking forward to showcasing our latest products and technologies at EAG so make sure you come and see us on stand 400.”
