Ticketpro Canada is proud to announce that its new RFID device, Cerberus, was successfully launched at Igloofest, which kicked off on January 17 in Montreal. Boasting an incredibly user-friendly and compact design, the new device utilizes RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology and can be mounted on any support, both horizontally and vertically. In addition to offering quicker entry to events (up to 1,800 tickets per hour per device), Cerberus ensures an extra level of security due to the fact that RFID chips cannot be copied.
Ticketpro’s RFID solution allows event promoters to program, read and validate passes, tickets and wristbands embedded with RFID chips. It offers all the advantages of scanning barcodes, but at a much faster rate, since RFID readers return results more quickly than barcode scanners.
Another big advantage is the device’s lower cost. Thanks to its compact size, Cerberus is an affordable option for event promoters of all sizes. “We are thrilled to offer this new device to festivals and events with limited budgets,” says Remi Caron, Vice President and General Manager of Ticketpro Canada. “Now even small events can benefit from all the advantages of this technology, without having to pay the higher cost normally associated with RFID access control.”
Compatible with iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches, the Cerberus device instantly reads the status of passes or tickets. signifies a valid ticket, while a red signals an invalid ticket. In such cases, the device also indicates why the ticket has been refused. More importantly, the device is able to detect any fraudulent tickets, making access to events entirely secure.
