Vix Vizion face biometrics approved for enforcing gambling bans in South Australia



The government of South Australia has selected Vix Vizion to deploy facial recognition to casinos, clubs and other hospitality venues with gambling machines as its official solutions provider, according to IT Brief.

A new state regulation requires all venues with 30 or more gaming machines, one or more of which can accept cash, to maintain an official register of the people using the machines through face biometrics.

Vix Vizion’s Imagus facial recognition has been approved by the state’s Consumer and Business Services agency and contact information placed on the government’s website for licensed establishments and their system integrator partners. CBS holds a database of individuals barred from gambling, which the system matches images of people entering a gaming area against. If a barred individual is identified, the facility operator is notified.

The company says that it holds only metadata on individuals, rather than actual biometric or personally identifiable data, and that it is able to prevent unauthorized use and disclosure of data to ensure compliance with data retention and privacy regulations.

Vix Vizion has deployed facial recognition for partners operating licensed premises, airports, major shopping centers, and corporate real estate in Australia and New Zealand, according to the article.

The Australian-owned company says it is working with local integrators and partners on the deployments.
