Camdata offers 'smart' RFID wristbands


06-02-2006

Camdata Ltd has announced that it has been appointed UK distributor of the PDC range of RFID wristbands.

Smart Band RFID wristbands are ideal for a variety of functions including cashless payment, tracking of purchases, age identification, and access control. They provide non-transferable positive customer ID while helping to increase per capita spending, enable cashless transactions at the point-of-sale, and eliminate the need for tickets at events.

In addition, RFID wristbands can help eliminate counterfeit wristbands at events, while preventing over-crowding and increasing public safety.



Camdata offers 'smart' RFID wristbands'It's very difficult, nearly impossible, to duplicate an RFID chip and place it on a wristband,' states Victor LaRosa, PDC RFID Manager.



'The RFID readers used at events are programmed to detect fraudulent RFID wristbands eliminating loss of revenue and unexpected over-crowding due to counterfeit sales.'



PDC Smart Bands have already been implemented at events worldwide, including the SXSW Music and Film Festivals, held annually in Texas, USA.



Admission wristbands can also track attendance, customer flow at bars, and help manage event staff.



Smart Band wristbands revolve around a tiny, flat RFID chip, sealed in a non-transferable plastic wristband that uses customised software to store and transfer data which is read by RFID readers. The RFID chips can contain serial numbers that are used to verify the authenticity of each band.
