Precision Dynamics and Intellitix to Exhibit RFID Technology at the International Music Festival Conference (IMFCON)
VALENCIA, CA, Nov 27, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Precision Dynamics Corporation (PDC), the global leader in
automatic wristband identification, and Intellitix, the global leader
in RFID solutions for live events, will showcase their RFID solutions
designed to enhance guest experiences at the International Music
Festival Conference (IMFCON) from December 2 to 4, at the Hyatt
Regency in Austin, TX.
IMFCON is the largest international organization representing today's
music festival market. Industry experts will have the opportunity to
personally experience PDC's Smart Band(R) RFID Wristband System in an
interactive, live demonstration with Intellitix's access control
system and social media technology. An RFID chip containing a unique
16-character code is sealed inside each Smart Band(R). This code is
validated by the Intellitix system when the wristband-wearing person
comes in contact with one of its custom-built entrance portals or
other RFID hardware.
For electronic access control, each Intellitix entrance portal has a
throughput rate of more than 2,500 persons per hour. Dramatically
reducing queuing times, the system allows guests to spend more time
inside the venue focusing on performances and concessions. The
identifying code programmed in each Smart Band(R) deters
counterfeiting and scalping, while providing peace of mind to
Intellitix and PDC's RFID technology also enables fans to take
advantage of the latest social media craze at festivals -- linking
live to Facebook to instantly share concert experiences with friends.
Guests are able to sync their PDC Smart Band(R) to their Facebook
page, then with a quick flick of the wrist, communicate online via
Intellitix' RFID-enabled Live Click Stations that can be installed
near concert stages, or anywhere throughout an event.
"RFID technology is a perfect avenue to connect promoters to their
guests via social media. The social media aspect of RFID technology
transforms guests into international event ambassadors, providing
free advertising and branding for the festival," said Robin Barber,
vice president of leisure and entertainment for Precision Dynamics.
Since its launch in 2001, PDC's Smart Band(R) RFID Wristband System
has been implemented at music festivals across North America as part
of time-saving applications that help redefine the guest experience,
while bringing significant bottom line benefits to the festivals that
use them. Applications for the Smart Band(R) include: cashless
point-of-sale; cashless arcade and vending; social media integration;
keyless hotel and locker access; electronic access control; photo
management systems; and customer loyalty programs. Additional PDC
RFID Solutions include PDC Smart(R) Cards, Key Fobs, Lanyards, and
Parking Passes. For more information, visit www.pdcorp.com/rfid.
Since Intellitix launched its suite of services in 2011, it has
become the leading global provider of RFID technology for live events
that includes access control, cashless payment systems, social media
integration, staff management, brand activation tools, audience
profiling and active RFID. Intellitix technology both reduces
overhead for event organizers, while simultaneously generating
additional income streams and directly improving the patron
experience. For more information, please visit www.intellitix.com.
