Card sharks need to be on their guard in London’s swankiest casinos now that a watchful eye from Burnley will be upon them.

Leading audio-visual expert Eyevis UK has supplied a state-of-the-art security system to help London’s top casinos combat cheats and criminals.

Eyevis was formed seven years ago by Burnley man Steve Murphy, a former St Theodore’s High School pupil and an avid Clarets fan, who previously served a five year technical apprenticeship with Michelin.

The company, based in Halifax Road, Briercliffe, has provided the technology for a cutting-edge security control room for Genting UK in London’s Mayfair.

Steve said: “The centre monitors gaming tables across the capital, playing an important role in ensuring games are not infiltrated by cheats and ensuring that staff are operating the tables correctly.

“The video wall that we have installed is central to the operation. It brings what is happening out on the casino floor into sharp focus.

“The high definition screens allow operators to home in on anything they believe to be suspicious.”

The Eyevis UK video wall system supplied to Genting UK is made up of six large 46in. industrial LCD displays, transmission cables and a controller, which show live streams from cameras strategically placed in casino gaming areas.

At present the system is protecting six high-profile casinos in the capital.

They include its flagship, Crockfords, located in the heart of Mayfair, which is recognised as the world’s oldest private members gaming club.

The Colony Club, Maxims Casino Club, The Palm Beach and Cromwell Mint are also covered by the camera system.

The high definition screens allow security staff to hone in and monitor gaming tables.

They can also spot if there is anything suspicious about a game and if there are any incorrect payouts on the tables.
