On October 8, 2009, BYI announced what we believe is the first casino-wide sale of iVIEW Display Manager Controllers ("DM") across the 5,000 slots at Pechanga Resort & Casino. Pechanga has been testing iVIEW DM since May on its Bally, Aristocrat, and Konami machines. The first 600 iVIEW DM's will in be installed this month, with the remaining 4,200 installed over a two-year period.
iVIEW DM is a hardware solution that allows gaming operators to present content through a service window on the game screen itself instead on a separate display (like the original iVIEW). Unlike IGT's Service Window solution, which is built into the game itself for IGT and WMS branded games, iVIEW DM is a standalone solution that can be added to any Bally, Aristocrat or Konami game.
We estimate that this contract is worth roughly $7.5MM in revenue and $0.04 in EPS to BYI. iVIEW DM will also be installed on Bally, Aristocrat and Konami machines at City Center when they open this December.
