Harris InfoCaster approved by Nevada Gaming Control Board

CINCINNATI — Harris Corp., an international communications and information technology company, announced that following an extensive application and review process, its InfoCaster digital signage solution has been approved for use with Bally and Paltronics progressive slot gaming systems by the State of Nevada Gaming Control Board.

The InfoCaster solution’s media controller interface enables the digital signage system to grab dynamically changing data — using XML schemes — from Bally and Paltronics systems and continually update and display data relating to the “progressive” values from the slot machines in real time.  In the event of a jackpot hit, the InfoCaster system displays the amount and location of the jackpot win within the slot machine areas and can automatically display the win on screens throughout an entire venue.

“Casinos and other slot machine gaming venues are looking for every competitive edge to enhance the customer experience, boost brand loyalty and increase profits,” said Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications.  “With its ability to work in real time and generate high-quality displays, the InfoCaster system offers a unique way for slot machine venues to interface with progressive gaming systems already in place to grab the attention of guests and increase excitement.”
