to keep an eye on everything from advantaged players to shopping malls and
parking lots," said Dr. James Ionson, CEO of RemoteReality. "Our seamless
360-degree high-resolution video with intelligent awareness can zero-in on
persons or objects of interest while an entire area remains under total
surveillance," continued Dr. Ionson, whose 30-year career includes being head
of research for Polaroid and has largely centered on imaging technologies, for

single high-performance camera lends itself to myriad security applications
for gaming and casino facilities.
