  • Patent number: 5444794
    Abstract: A check image capture system processes on-us and transit checks to achieve significant cost savings and efficiencies. The check image capture system includes an image pickup device 30, teller personal computer 32, check amount encoder 34, and check amount adder 36. Checks presented to the teller are scanned by the image pickup device 30, which forms image data representing respective images of the checks. Each check is then classified as an on-us check or a transit check. Transit checks are transported to the amount encoder 34 whereas on-us checks are truncated. The check amount adder 36 receives amount data for the transit checks and computes the total of the transit check amounts. The check amount encoder encodes each transit check with the amount associated therewith if the check amount total is correct.

  • Patent number: 4531187
    Abstract: A system for monitoring the play at gambling games is disclosed. The preferred embodiment comprises a system for monitoring the play at blackjack as that game is played in casinos. The system typically will comprise video monitor means for generating a digital representation of the bets made by the players and of the cards dealt to the players and to the dealer, so that an output can be generated indicating whether the correct payouts are made and bets collected. An alarm signal is generated if an error is made in the play of the game. An alarm signal may also be generated if the long-term statistics of the game indicate that the odds ordinarily applicable to the game have been departed from over a period of time.
