Eye in the sky watching empty cabinets

Eye in the sky watching empty cabinets

Bathrooms are probably the only place in the casino without cameras. They apparently decided that they needed a camera to monitor the cabinets that are filled with brochures (as if they don't intend to give away the brochures anyway). Exploring a casino is a particularly exhilarating experience because it is practically impossible to do so without coming into view of tens if not hundreds or thousands of distinct surveillance cameras. Casinos face a special challenge trying to coalesce thousands to tens of thousands of simultaneous video streams. Storing, cataloging, and searching that massive amount of video data presents another massive challenge, and even then, the surveillance video is typically only useful in a forensic application.
