Player User Interface & GSA Technologies
  • The OAC has identified two fundamental requirements for the player user interface:
    • It needs to grab the player’s attention.
    • It needs to provide access to third-party applications.
  • GSA technologies address these requirements in two key areas:
    • Media display windows.
    • Custom printing.
  • This presentation examines these technologies and their capabilities.
media display windows
Media Display Windows
  • Media display windows are pop-up windows that can appear on the main screen or secondary screens of an EGM.
    • Often referred to as picture-in-picture.
  • Third-party applications written using industry standards, such as HTML and Flash, can be run in the windows.
  • The windows can communicate directly with the EGM.
  • The windows can communicate with third-party applications.
custom printing
Custom Printing
  • Custom printing allows a voucher printer to be used to print other types of materials, such as coupons and promotional offers.
  • Third-party systems candirect print requests to an EGM.
  • Site-specific templates can be downloaded to the printer to create unique printed materials.

Media Display Window
  • The configuration of the EGM describes the window:
    • Screen.
    • Position.
    • Size.
    • Content types.
    • Priority.
  • An EGM can have multiple windows, each controlled by a separate host system.

Media Display Window

media display window1
Media Display Window
  • The host system communicates to the EGM via the G2S protocol:
    • Load content.
    • Display window.
    • Hide window.
    • Release content.

  • The EGM loads content from the location specified by the host.
  • Content can be pre-loaded for fast transitions between different content.

  • The content running in the window can communicate directly to the EGM via the Media Display Interface.
  • The content can react to events as they happen on the EGM.
  • The content can also request that the EGM take certain actions.

Custom Printing
  • Regions are used to describe specific printable areas on a ticket including:
    • Position.
    • Rotation.
    • Font.
  • A regions can contain:
    • Text.
    • Barcodes.
    • Graphics.
  • Templates are made up of a group of regions.

Region 101

Region 105

Region 103

Region 106

Region 104

Region 102

Custom Printing
  • The G2S protocol supports 1000 regions and 1000 templates.
    • However, a printer may not have sufficient memory to store all 1000 regions and templates – especially, if graphic are used.
  • Regions 0-99 and templates 0-99 are reserved for common pre-defined regions and templates. These are “burned into” the printers.
    • Templates 0-11 are currently used for cash-out tickets.
  • Other regions and templates are available for other site-specific purposes – custom printing.

  • The G2S protocol is used by a host system to send site-specific configuration information and print requests to an EGM.
  • The GDS protocol is used by the EGM to forward the configuration information and print requests to the printer.

Player User Interface & GSA Technologies
  • GSA technologies provide the foundation for the player user interface:
    • Media Display Windows.
      • Media display windows grab the player’s attention by placing a window on the main screen where the player’s attention is focused.
      • Media display windows allow the player to interact with third-party applications.
    • Custom Printing.
      • Custom printed materials grab the player’s attention by putting critical information in the player’s hand.
      • Custom printing technologies provide access to the EGM’s printer for third-party applications.
