Face Recognition for Events

With recent events like the Manchester bombing and the attack on the Bataclan in France, event security is more important than ever before. Virtually everyone enjoys going to hear live music or see live sporting events, but there are concerns that events might not be safe enough.

Let’s be honest: event security is an incredibly difficult task, and legacy surveillance systems don’t do enough to deter or detect criminals. Stadium security leaders do their best to prevent crime, but often lack hard evidence about who they should be monitoring. It’s all too easy for banned fans to sneak back into stadiums. And in most cases, dangerous felons or suspected terrorists enter events unnoticed.

The game changer, of course, is facial recognition. Without biometric surveillance, event security is random, reactive and risky. Banned fans, stalkers, and dangerous criminals can pose a serious threat to the safety of performing artists, athletes and fans. This technology, which The Washington Post called “the Holy Grail” of event security, might just be the secret to proactive stadium security that can actually prevent crimes and keep spectators safe.

To help you learn about some of the benefits of this transformational technology, we created a 5-Minute Guide to Event Security. This easy-to-digest guide will give you a quick overview of facial recognition and help you determine if it can help you improve security at your events.
