Unity Technologies and SHFL entertainment Enter Strategic Relationship

Unity Technologies and SHFL entertainment Enter Strategic Relationship 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/24/13 --   Unity
Technologies, provider of the Unity multi-platform engine and
development tools, today announced a multi-year strategic
relationship with SHFL entertainment, an S&P Smallcap 600 gaming
supply company, specializing in providing casino customers with
improved profitability, productivity and security. 
With the Unity engine, SHFL entertainment will expand its popular
cutting-edge gaming entertainment content through Electronic Gaming
Machines, which include traditional video slot machines, and iGaming,
which features online versions of SHFL's table games, social gaming,
and mobile applications. Unity, used by slot manufacturers and online
gambling companies around the world to create some of the most
exciting and compelling interactive gambling content, is one of the
most widely adopted middleware solutions for development in the
gambling industry. The Unity developer community is more than 1.5
million developers strong and includes thousands of game studios
across the world, both large and small. Unity is an excellent
solution for gambling companies (land-based, online & mobile) looking
to work with development houses already familiar with the powerful,
deep, and efficient development tools. 
"Technology is at the heart of all we do and SHFL entertainment is
excited to begin our work and collaboration with Unity Technologies,"
said Lou Castle, Chief Strategy Officer for SHFL entertainment. "Our
product innovation, superior quality, and service make gaming more
fun for players and more profitable for operators. We believe our
work with the Unity engine will help us deliver this value even
broader." 
Unity is known for its efficient design, enabling wild creativity
while keeping development cycles and costs down. In-editor play
testing allows for lightning fast iteration and the excellent art
pipeline allows art assets to be saved from any popular art tool
(Photoshop, Maya, Modo, and more) and affect change to every instance
of that asset across the project automatically.
