Article about Colby DVRs at the Sahara: igwb.pdf
To Whom it May Concern:
At the Sahara Hotel and Casino here on the Las Vegas Strip, we
take pride in being an industry leader in many areas; recently
and most notably, in our surveillance operations.
We have entered the 21 st century by replacing all of our VCRs
with state-of-the-art Colby Digital Video Recorders (DVRs).
After conducting extensive research on digital video recording
systems, we found Colby DVRs to be unequalled in their quality,
reliability and cost effectiveness. The Colby concept of “simplicity”
in both installation and software won hands down over the rest.
The Colby DVRs were installed without any disruption to our current
operations. My non-computer oriented surveillance staff learned
to use the system easily within hours. I have been a surveillance
director for fifteen years and have purchased millions of dollars
of equipment, none of which has been without problems. What compels
me to recommend a company like Colby is how they handle on-going
support. Colby customer support has been outstanding. Remember,
this is the first and largest casino DVR installation of its kind
in the world and the only DVR installation on the Las Vegas Strip.
It has been nearly two years since we installed Colby DVRs and
we have received several software upgrades during that period.
At all time, the units have been quietly performing flawlessly,
24/7. I couldn’t recommend a product any higher.
Thanks to the 400+ digital video recorders we have in operation,
my staff can now spend their time doing what I hired them to do…”observe”
instead of spending three hours of every shift changing tapes.
If that weren’t enough, I also now save my employer over
one hundred thousand dollars a year in operational costs.
If you have any questions, please call me directly at (702) 633-7737
or at the Sahara Casino (702) 737-2319. I would enjoy showing
you our installation.

P.S. Because of Colby’s unique CD Video File Verification
Software, the Colby Systems software is the only digital recording
system and software that has been accepted by the Nevada Gaming
Board for video CD’s to be used as evidence in court instead
of old technology, non-verifiable tapes.
This is unquestionably the way of the future in casino surveillance
