Two more GSA member companies earn GSA Certification

5 March 2014

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The GSA Certification Program continues to expand rapidly, and now the Gaming Standards Association (GSA) has announced two more GSA member companies have earned certifications in the rigorous program. First, Nidec Sankyo’s 3490-01D, Sankyo MCM252-2R1191 Card Reader Firmware, has been certified as GSA compliant with the GDS Card Reader Communication Protocol v1.2. Phil Piercey, Sales Engineer for Nidec Sankyo said, “Nidec Sankyo is proud to be the first to deliver a certified GDS card reader to the gaming industry. Our goal is to readily serve G2S installations with a GDS certified peripheral that is recognized by GSA.” Next, Scientific Games International’s SGVideo Site Controller v2.0.7 has been certified as GSA compliant with G2S Message Protocol 2.1. “Having this GSA Certification is a significant achievement, because it signals to our customers and the industry that our SGVideo System meets the highest standards for interoperability and efficiency,” said Brennen Lawrence, Senior Vice President of North American Gaming for Scientific Games. “We have worked with customers and regulators around the globe on our implementation of the G2S 2.1 standards, and being recognized for meeting these stringent GSA guidelines indicates that the architecture and deployment of our SGVideo System provide technological enhancement for our customers.” Details of these products, as well as all products that have earned GSA Certification, are publicly available on www.gamingstandards.com. Certification records listed on the site detail the GSA standard functionality supported by a product. GSA’s Certification Program promotes interoperability in gaming products that correctly implement GSA standards. Products that are GSA Certified have been tested by a qualified test lab and found to meet GSA certification requirements for the implementation of GSA standards. Nidec Sankyo and Scientific Games International are GSA members. GSA has a wide range of membership to meet any organization’s size, budget and business goals.
