designed at the optimum size for gaming efficiency. iVIZION runs faster than any other bill val-


idator,with two high-speed processors, one solely dedicated to banknote evaluation. Its sealed 85 mm banknote path is the widest opening on any validator. What’s more, JCM’s patented and proven removable stacker mechanism gives slot techs easy access to critical components, resulting in greater up-time and an optimum data capture. The foundation of intelligent validation, iVIZION is designed to accommodate future operator and player enhancements. JCM’s Sentry 2.0, the next-generation bill-


validator bezel, is easily programmable so an operator can display custom messages or graph- ics in bright, high-contrast two-color LCD dis- plays. Sentry 2.0 also helps to quickly settle dis- putes by showing player and attendant the last banknote in, denomination, insertion directon and time elapsed. Because Sentry 2.0 is con- trolled by the bill validator, no changes to the game software are necessary. iVIZION and Sentry 2.0 are each backed by


20 years of JCM Global currency software devel- opment for superior, dependable performance.
