Gaming News Thursday, April 4, 2019 1 2 EC Art Services Showcases History and Culture through Artwork EC Art Services, as sole art curator and sourcing house, has just finished the final install at Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation's new 500,000 square-foot hotel and casino expansion. Working directly with the Tribal Council and their cultural committee to determine the most impor- tant elements of the culture, owner and art curator Ruth-Ann Thorn states, "It was very important for the tribe to hand select every piece of art for their new resort. The desire was to design with respect to current trends while reflecting the culture and traditions of their her- itage." Including initial consultation and design meetings, this 12 floor/300 room tower with five restaurants, a large spa and a massive casino area with a state-of- the-art event center took roughly 12 months to complete. "We are proud to say that all paintings, framing and instal- lation of over 750 pieces of artwork was completed both under budget and prior to all deadlines," said Thorn. As a tribal member (Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians) Ruth-Ann understands how a tribe needs to function politically with respect to the way things are accom- plished in Indian coun- try. Her specialty is working with tribes to discover the best way to show their history and culture through artwork. With a resource of over 200 artists that have the ability to interpret and portray the tribe's ideas, fabulous works of art are always achieved. "Some tribes have cultural ties to basket making and textile design, while other tribes focus more on sacred animals and cre- ation stories. These ideas can be shown in a traditional or contemporary style. It's up to the tribe to decide what they want to show within their casinos, hotels and properties and what they feel is appropri- ate to share with the public. As a tribal member and an art curator, I feel that it is important for us to share our culture. We are proud people and we need to have our voices heard and art is a wonderful way to show who we each are in Indian coun- try," said Thorn.

Hanwha Techwin Introduces New Eco-Friendly Baby Monitor Hanwha Techwin (formerly Samsung Techwin) debuted the Wisenet BabyView Eco PT wireless video baby monitor – the latest in its line of consumer video monitoring and home surveillance prod- ucts. The BabyView Eco PT includes an energy efficient mode for power conser- vation and has a camera that allows users to pan up to 295 degrees and tilt up to 110 degrees for a full range of visibility in any room of the home where children are present. "Hanwha Techwin is committed to providing home security products that effortlessly enable people to keep an eye on their homes and children," said Richard Simone, Hanwha Techwin America Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "The BabyView Eco PT is the newest addition to our line of video baby monitors, helping people keep their babies even safer with low-power consumption and a full range of vision control." Parents can now keep a closer eye on their children thanks to the remote-con- trol pan and tilt function of the new BabyView Eco PT camera. Especially useful for babies who have begun to crawl or inquisitive toddlers who love to explore, the BabyView Eco PT allows parents to maneuver the camera vertical- ly and horizontally to get a better view of the surrounding area. The BabyView Eco PT lets parents create a more energy efficient and envi- ronmentally friendly home for their chil- dren with its energy-saving Eco mode. While the device does come with VOX mode as well, the Eco mode gives users another way to further conserve power. When in Eco mode, the monitor only wakes up when the camera detects sound, extending the moni- tor's battery life. Each user can set their own sound sensitivity level. In addition, the monitor and camera con- nect by only using radio frequency sig- nals every two seconds, ensuring lower radiation in the baby's room. The color 4.3-inch LCD touchscreen monitor display provides clear, real-time video with at least six hours of battery life. The BabyView Eco PT also has a long-range radio frequency of 900 feet within line of sight, giving parents the freedom to do what they need to around the house without losing contact with their baby. It supports up to four cameras, and features multiple viewing modes: single, sequence and multi-camera view. The BabyView Eco PT is equipped with a room temperature sensor, allowing parents to keep an eye on the temperature of the baby's room through the monitor. In addition, the camera has a built-in microphone and high-quality speaker for two-way talk. The device comes pre-programmed with four lullabies and three types of white noise to soothe the baby and help them fall asleep. Additionally, it's equipped with night vision capabilities up to 16 feet to produce clear images in low-light or dark conditions, using built- in non-visible infrared LED lights. Pricing and availability of the new BabyView Eco PT will be announced soon. Visit www.wisenetlife.com for more infor- mation. AcuRite Launches Atlas Weather Station Chaney Instrument Co. has announced the release of a new weather station, the AcuRite Atlas. Built with high-precision sensor technology, Atlas allows users to connect to hyperlocal weather condi- tions. Atlas has the ability to track UV exposure, light intensity and lightning, in addition to monitoring temperature, humidity, rainfall, barometric pressure, wind speed and direction. Along with these new features, Atlas offers an enhanced accuracy rating within one degree, improved durability and more frequent readings. "AcuRite Atlas is the future of per- sonal weather monitoring and our most advanced weather station yet," said AcuRite Meteorologist Kari Strenfel. "Atlas provides consumers with a weather system they can depend on to accurately predict a variety of weather conditions in their exact location, rather than relying on a weather report that's generated at the nearest news station or airport." The launch of products like AcuRite Atlas is part of an increasing smart home technology trend providing home and business owners with highly accurate, actionable, personalized information. Weather stations are sought-after by a wide variety of audiences from industry professionals like landscapers and farm- ers, to personal at-home users interested in outdoor activities and the latest tech- nology gadgets. Atlas allows users to quickly and easily access their data, archive it so they can look back and analyze historical information, and share it with fellow weather enthusiasts. Consumers are able to choose how they view their informa- tion, either on a high-def- inition touchscreen dis- play or through remote monitoring, or both. The high-definition indoor touchscreen dis- play offers a quick snap- shot of the day's high and low records and graphs for each measurement to track trends. The display features an SD card slot for long-term storage of weather data. Atlas can provide remote monitoring from any device – mobile or desktop, including via the My AcuRite smart- phone app. This feature lets users view data from anywhere, even at work or on vacation, allowing them to stay connect- ed. Customizable alerts and notifications inform of changing weather conditions that might need attention. Atlas has the capability to integrate with Amazon Echo for convenient, personalized weather reports from Alexa. AcuRite Atlas retails starting at $249.99 and is available at www.acurite.com.

In some fix- tures, the reflector should be unscrewed to make room for the LED. The ReLamp LEDs work on the same AC dimmers as halogen. The light looks just like tungsten halogen, but without the heat. It is also available in daylight. Both have very high quality color rendering. Regardless of how it is measured, the color looks right on all faces, makeup, wardrobe – just like the tried and true halogen. For a list price under $700, the ReLamp 1K is what most have been waiting for. It's certainly more than a halogen globe, but given the estimated 50,000 hour life- time, one ReLamp LED compares to about $5,000 worth of halogen bulbs that would have to be purchased over that same 50,000 hours. A newsroom can now upgrade to LED with no downtime. The process of installing the ReLamp LEDs is only a few minutes per fixture. The look is seamless. It is easy to replace a few fixtures or all of them, and preserve the look the halogen was providing. The focus and barn door cuts are equivalent. Best of all, it will save enough in power in the first year to pay for the upgrade. Learn more at www.visionsmith.com and www.bulbtronics.com.
