What could possibly be worse than paying top dollar to see your team lose? Perhaps waiting in frustratingly long security lines. And then there’s the unthinkable: a tragic event caused by a violent fan or terrorist.
Colleges and Pro sports organizations need to do everything in their power to ensure that fans feel safe when attending events. Face recognition offers the most technologically advanced way to keep potentially dangerous individuals and repeat fans out of events. FaceFirst can instantly recognize when individuals on terror watchlists, banned fans or dangerous criminals enter an event. The system can also be used to identify VIP ticket holders so teams can provide them with perks that can increase satisfaction and boost season ticketholder retention.
Each year, NCS4 holds summits to explore the latest developments in event security, and this year, FaceFirst is proud to be a sponsor. So if you’re headed to the NCS4 National Intercollegiate Athletics Safety and Security Summit or Commercial Sport and Entertainment Facilities Safety and Security Summit later this month, here are three easy ways to learn more about face recognition:
1) Our Director of Sales Steve Devries will be giving a presentation entitled Face Recognition for Event Security and VIP identification. The presentation will discuss how face recognition can make events both more secure and profitable using face recognition surveillance and mobile face recognition technology.
2) We’ll be giving demos at the FaceFirst exhibit table! Stop by, say hi and learn more.
3) If you’d like a personalized demo before, after or during either summit, reach out to us and we can set one up.
