Tx Systems offers a variety of contactless readers to create event ticketing solutions. This includes NFC readers compatible with many NFC form factors such as RFID/NFC Wristbands and NFC Tags to be used with smartphones for ticketing applications. Using contactless readers in conjunction with NFC tokens in any form such as a wristband, token or smartphone allows the consumer to move beyond basic ticketing to more secure and convenient methods which store value and information that are redeemable with a compatible reader. The option of validating an individual through an NFC wearable, card or mobile device is read in a short range up to 4 cm for additional security. An economical option, NFC technology can now issue custom wristbands to attendees using an NFC reader to authenticate them. Another ticketing use case incorporates mobile NFC readers with a tablet to allow entrance into events regardless of electrical availability. NFC technology also enables interactive kiosks and smart posters to be read by an individual’s NFC-enabled device that initiates NFC functionalities such as pushing a URL to open a webpage on their smartphone browser.
