Xtract One Technologies has announced its SmartGateway system has been selected to protect all entrances of H-E-B Center at Cedar Park, a major entertainment venue in Austin, Texas.  

The company says its SmartGateway system replaces traditional metal detectors and delivers reliable screening solutions for large, ticketed venues to allow for high throughput.  

SmartGateway leverages artificial intelligence (AI)-powered sensors to unobtrusively scan patrons for weapons and other prohibited items as they enter the venue, optimizing their experience by reducing time spent in security lines and allowing patrons to quickly and safely enter the venue to enjoy their event.  

Improved protection

“The implementation of Xtract One’s SmartGateway will enable us to continue to provide security for our guests while also improving their experience by decreasing entry time,” said Michael Delay, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager of H-E-B Center.  

 ”We are thrilled to partner with H-E-B Center at Cedar Park to provide our advanced security solution to help improve patron safety and enhance the existing security measures,” Peter Evans, CEO of Xtract One, added.  

“This collaboration marks a significant step in advancing and modernizing venue security, all while prioritizing the overall patron experience. 

“Our goal is to help create an even more secure and memorable entertainment space for anyone going to the venue.”    

H-E-B Center is home of the Texas Stars, the American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars and the Austin Spurs, the NBA G League affiliate of the San Antonio Spurs.  

The venue hosts more than 150 events per year, which includes concerts, family shows, other live sporting events and trade shows.
