Innovative Technology reported a busy, networking event at The Autumn Coin-Op (ACOS) last week following a long-awaited return to the exhibition calendar for the amusement industry. The annual show took place over two days at the new venue for 2021, ILEC Conference Centre, Earls Court, London.
Andy Bullock, Senior Business Development Manager said, “It was fantastic to see colleagues and customers in-person last week – we have not attended an event in the UK since February 2020, so this exhibition was long overdue and most welcome! Our stand was packed out on both days, and we received some really positive feedback on the products we were showcasing.”
Andy continued, “Our NV22 Spectral recycler went down a storm with the visitors. Although this was not the first showing to the industry, customers didn’t recall all the benefits and how this could really improve cash handling efficiencies, as they had not seen the product since before the COVID pandemic began. The NV22S is a market leading, compact mixed note recycler which combines a NV9 Spectral banknote validator and ‘Multi Note Float’ payout unit. It can store and recycle up to 40 mixed notes, maximising cash efficiency and reducing coin starvation as well as significantly reducing operational costs. We also updated customers about the NV9 Spectral range now fully supporting the £50 note, due to the new polymer note dimensions being narrower and Spectral Technology providing high end security validation. The next Technical Bulletin will follow for our customers to download the
free dataset updates.”
“The team had some exciting conversations about ICU age verification and facial recognition. Safer gambling is high on everyone’s agenda so it was good to talk to Operators about how they can use ICU age verification to combat underage gambling, plus utilise facial recognition to assist with ensuring their self-exclusion policies are implemented and adhered to. Our product has key advantages when compared to other offerings in the market; it requires no internet, has no recurring fees and it offers world leading accuracy.”
Concluding Andy commented, “It was also great to see CashGenic – our hygienic cash automation offering, being utilised on a customer’s stand in a change redemption machine. We’re working closely with our CashGenic partners in the UK who supply this full solution to enable customers wanting to pay by cash to do so safely and hygienically. Overall, the show was a great success for us, and we look forward to the next gaming and amusement events scheduled in the calendar for 2022.”
