Evolv Technology has confirmed its partnership with the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars.
According to the company, the Jaguars are using the Evolv Express screening solution at their home field, EverBank Stadium.
Evolv Express is also used to screen attendees for events at Daily’s Place, the new multi-use complex located adjacent to the football field.
Both facilities are managed by ASM Global – Jacksonville, which also uses Express at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville.
“We had been using traditional metal detectors, but when you’re welcoming close to 70,000 people each week, that is a time-consuming and cumbersome process,” said Bobby Lyle, Director of Facilities Security for the Jaguars.
“Evolv helps us move the fans inside more quickly and get them to where they want to be.
“It also frees up bandwidth for our security team and allows us to reallocate our resources.”
Evolv Express, which screens more than one million football fans on any given Sunday, uses sensor technology with artificial intelligence (AI) to provide accurate threat detection at volume and speed.
This means fans can walk through without always stopping or having to open their bags.
The screening solution helps security officials at the stadium to differentiate between threats and the everyday items people carry in their pockets and bags such as cell phones and keys, which reduces lines and helps guests to make their way into the stadium quickly.
