RFID technology is being ustilised to “enhance” people’s experience of live music events and parties. During the London 2012 Games, Intellitix powered some of the most exclusive private after-show parties using its full suite of RFID technologies.
In addition to this an on-line audience of 2 million was generated by using a combination of Intellitix systems and ID&C RFID wristbands, when ticket holders linked their bands with Facebook to check in and post photos using custom-built units within the venue. The full suite of RFID technology deployed also included a secure access control system and a “cashless” bar with guests’ RFID wristbands
Samsung is also involved in the roll out of ticket-less RFID technology at live music events in the United Kingdom (UK). Working closely with Kilimanjaro Live abd Intellitix, the company will bring the new technology to festival goers in the form of special RFID wristbands. These wristbands will be read on arrival to validate visitors’ entry, promising secure access.
Festival goers will be able to personalize their wristband to check in on Facebook and share their experience with their friends online, to enter competitions associated with events, or upgrade to VIP simply by flashing their wristband.
The technology made its debut at the Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ gig at Knebworth. This was followed by the music and wake boarding festival, Wakestock.
And finally SAG (Security Assembly Group) has released a disposable high frequency RFID wristband designed to meet short-time identification of attendees at such as special attractions, sports events, amusement parks, concerts, clubs, festivals and exhibitions and patients at hospitals. The SAG Disposable Wristband (Reel Format) is made of polypropylene (PP) and has a full length of 276 millimeters.
The new SAG Disposable Wristband (Reel Format) features the NXP MIFARE Ultralight chip with 384 bits of user memory. The cost-effective RFID wristband solution is also compliant with the ISO 14443 A standard.
The product is delivered in reel for easy printing and encoding at the point-of-use, and can be supplied with an optional fastening button for one-time closure in order to prevent unauthorized transfer during its usage, avoiding tampering attempts.
