The Greenbrier is an award-winning resort located in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. A National Historic landmark, The Greenbrier’s classic architecture, exquisite interior design, carefully sculpted landscape, impeccable service and outstanding amenities have hosted distinguished guests from around the world since 1778. The resort features a wide array of amenities and recreational activities, including an elegant, Monte Carlo-style casino, which complements its 200 plus year history.
The Casino Club is discreetly located beneath the front entrance green space in an underground complex and utilizes parts of the building’s historical infrastructure and architecture. In designing and installing the video surveillance system, the objective was to preserve the building’s architectural beauty and integrity, such as the original intricate ceiling design in the Casino Club, while implementing sophisticated IP-based surveillance capabilities. Security management at The Greenbrier required the IP solution to be fully featured, including an intelligent approach to managing the system. The challenge was to provide an IP-based video surveillance and security solution that would be compromise-free, could be implemented within a very aggressive time frame and would meet the very stringent regulations for gaming facilities stipulated by West Virginia Lottery. Additionally, the 100% IP-based design would be the first of its kind in the state and would potentially help set the standard for all future IP-based video surveillance installations in gaming facilities within the state.
