Ticketmaster Will Soon Let You Check into Events with Just a Sound
Imagine going to a concert and just walking right in..no stooping to get your tickets scanned, easily Skipping the LONG-HOT lines. Sounds like a dream right? Welcome to the FUTURE! Thanks to Ticketmaster Presence — technology that replaces traditional paper tickets with digital passes.
Presence works by transferring data from smartphones directly to receivers in event venues. The receivers then scan the data to confirm your identity with “tap and go” entry, turning your smartphone into a check-in device.
The new mobil pass will use an ultrasonic audio technology that sends data over inaudible waves called Smart Tones.
As you approach the venue, just take out your phone and it will broadcast your personal ticketing data.
For starters, Presence is in production at 32 venues across North America. It will continue to roll out over the next few years.
