Ticketpro Canada’s New RFID Device Makes A Successful Debut.
Montreal, January 29, 2013
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.
