The Nevada Gaming Commission has precise definitions on how casino regulation is to be conducted. A digital video recording (DVR) system used by a Nevada casino has to:

  • Record at 30 frames per second, full screen, in real time.
  • Store video for not less than 7 days.
  • Provide audio and visual notification of failures concerning the surveillance system or DVR media storage.
  • Have a media storage system configured so that failure of a single component does not result in the loss of any data from the media storage system.
  • Record video with date and time stamp, plus inclusion of a “watermark” video verification encryption code on file with the Gaming Control Board.
  • Repair or replace any failure of DVR media storage within 8 hours.
  • Locate all DVR equipment in the surveillance room.
