Surveillance technologies and innovation at the gaming tables
While attending a Loto-Québec reverse pitch that revealed the IT challenges facing gaming houses around the world, the founders of HookMotion, a company specializing in computer vision and artificial intelligence, took the ball and ran with it, bringing innovation at the gaming tables by developing the TableMotion solution.
TableMotion uses computer vision to help track gaming tables. To date, this is still a manual operation, which is very costly for casinos and gaming houses.
In 2023, we will have a complete solution […] TableMotion is currently deployed on a few Loto-Quebec tables, and we are gradually adding features until the product is complete. We are in discussion with Loto-Quebec for a contract that will allow us to implement the solution globally […] Desjardins has given us a line of credit that allows us to grow the team now and start generating revenue.
Dominic Morin-Proulx, co-founder and chief operating officer of HookMotion
