NRG Stadium, the home of the Houston Texans, has deployed Evolv Technology’s detection solution to screen fans who attend games.

According to the AI-based weapons detection company, its Evolv Express solution accelerates physical security screening while being designed to maintain a high degree of weapons detection accuracy.

For large capacity venues, this means getting to seats faster with less inconvenience.

Improving fan experience

“There’s a learning curve with any significant operational change, but one of the reasons that we chose to work with Evolv is how the technology can help expedite the ingress process so fans can get to their seats quickly,” said Juan Rodriguez, Houston Texans Senior Vice President of Operations and Event Management.

“We’re confident that our experience with Evolv Express will mirror that of other NFL franchises where the systems have had a prompt positive impact and we’re proud to represent the expansion of Evolv’s presence in our community.”

“Express has proven to provide an enhanced overall street-to-seat experience for sports venues all over the country,” added John Baier, Evolv’s Vice President of Sports.

“We’re excited to see how our deployment with the Texans translates to operational excellence and delighted fans.”
