Europe’s largest casino development is major new leisure destination

The GoldenEye Hotel and Resort in Svilengrad, Bulgaria was the largest casino development in Europe when it opened its doors in January 2024. A purpose-built luxury complex, owned and operated by BC Industries, the GoldenEye includes a hotel, gaming rooms, a spa center and pool, high-end restaurants, and retail outlets. Located on the coast less than a kilometer from the Bulgaria-Turkey border, this 61,000 square meter development is ideally located as an international leisure destination and has quickly become a major attraction for casino enthusiasts, tourists, spa and wellness customers, and business professionals.


Need for comprehensive HD surveillance, efficient VMS for multiple operators, and system flexibility

BC Industries wanted to find the most robust and powerful video solution, not only to provide a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for hotel guests, but also to optimize the efficiency of back-of-house services. For the casino itself, the security challenges are even more demanding: there is a requirement for complete 24/7 visibility over gaming tables and public areas; guaranteed fault-free image capture and recording of HD video footage; and the most efficient real time monitoring tools for multiple users.

The company also wanted flexibility designed-in, with a modular approach that would allow surveillance reach to be expanded, as well as integration with their other systems, and and the adoption of AI analytics as future requirements emerge. IDIS technology was identified as the preferred solution, and the contract was awarded to IDIS integration partner Volga Elektronik.


IDIS complete end-to-end solution provides 24/7 HD view of all casino activities – with advanced

An end-to-end video solution from IDIS was installed to cover the casino, the hotel, and car parks. It not only ensures HD coverage of all transactions, but it also provides a flexible platform for the planned adoption of AI-powered analytics.

• The system comprises more than 600 cameras; seven 64-ch NVR recorders; enterprise-level IDIS Solution Suite VMS including Critical Failover to ensure continuous access to video; and all system accessories.

• A combination of IDIS 12MP Super Fisheyes, 8MP IR dome cameras, and 5MP IR domes allows broad scene surveillance of all internal areas, without blind spots, plus targeted coverage of priority locations including gaming tables and cashier stations. External areas, including parking bays and entrances, are covered using IDIS 5MP bullet cameras and 2MP IR PTZs.

• IDIS Solution Suite VMS allows 24/7 monitoring by six operators and two supervisors, using a control room video wall, with live viewing and simultaneous playback, and full failover protection against loss of video data in the event of network instability.

• The solution is NDAA-compliant, with industry-best cybersecurity protection; and meets GDPR requirements, with IDIS’ dynamic video privacy masking allowing footage to be easily exported without privacy infringement.
