Customer Spotlight: Ask the “Eye in the Sky”

Security Camera

If you’ve ever been in a casino, you’ll know how many security installations they have. Amidst splendid surroundings characterized by innovative architecture, state-of-the-art casino floors, superior dining, lodging and entertainment offerings, there are security cameras everywhere—including the famous “eye in the sky” over the blackjack and baccarat tables.

The “eye in the sky” is a term given to casino and other commercial security closed circuit cameras. In casinos, these cameras are positioned to monitor seats, tables, hallways, restaurants and even elevators closely—often with enough clarity to read the time on the watch of a player at a table. They are also known as Pan Tilt Zoom cameras—or PTZ—which is a standard term in the gaming industry.

These cameras often help casino officials judge whether the person is card counting—the running count or the running total of each card’s assigned value—which is a proven advantage in the game of blackjack. To make all that security possible for its guests, casinos have wires and cables working behind the scenes. To manage those wires and cables, they use our full assortment of specialty wire-marking products. Who knew?
