Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas Selects JCM Global's New iVIZION™ for Casino, Expansion

JCM Premiered iVIZION™ at G2E Yesterday; Announces Contract With Hard Rock Today

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - November 18, 2009) - JCM Global's new and revolutionary iVIZION™ premiered at the Global Gaming Expo yesterday and is already changing the way the gaming industry sees bill validiation. Now, just one day later, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas has caught the "vizion," and has selected iVIZION as the exclusive bill validator for the casino.

JCM's iVIZION will displace a competitor's product in all 700 slot machines in the existing casino and in the property's expansion. The result will be the first 100 percent iVIZION installation.

JCM Global VP of Sales Mark Henderson said, "Just one day after introducing iVIZION to the gaming industry, we are thrilled to announce that the Hard Rock has caught the 'vizion.' Earning the trust of this high-profile property is a huge win for JCM."

iVIZION is the foundation of intelligent validation and sees better, thinks smarter and runs faster than any validator in the industry. Its Contact Image Sensor (CIS) Technology combines transparency and reflective sensors, resulting in the best sensing capabilities available, and gives operators a 99%+ acceptance rate and the best counterfeit protection. CIS also captures 100% of the full front and back of note or ticket, resulting in faster note-to-note processing speed and fast dispute resolution.

iVIZION is driven by two high-speed processors. It has an RFID Intelligent Cash Box (ICB®); the widest sealed bill path in gaming; optical note centering technology; advanced optical and mechanical anti-stringing device; a patented removable stacker mechanism; is self-calibrating; and has a component modular design for easy future upgrading of any component.

Because iVIZION is the foundation of intelligent validation, it was built to be future-proof. Because it offers both open and proprietary data protocols, the development roadmap includes implementation of Managed Services, offering custom reports on the health and condition of peripheral components, updating version software or currency modifications without the need to replace existing system infrastructure.

G2E attendees can see the foundation of intelligent validation in iVIZION in booth #2643.
