Mile High City’s premier performing arts center is infused with artificial intelligence and sensor-based security for a better guest experience

WALTHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Evolv Technology (NASDAQ: EVLV), the global leader in weapons detection security screening, today announced that the Denver Performing Arts Complex has replaced its portable and portable metal detectors by Evolv Express® Systems, Evolv Cortex AI™ and Evolv Insights®. This has resulted in a better guest experience, enhanced security and less stress for staff and guests when entering the resort’s popular entertainment venues.

The Denver Performing Arts Complex is home to the Colorado Ballet, Colorado Symphony, Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and Opera Colorado. Each year, the Complexe des Arts attracts over a million guests who attend more than 15 shows per week. Security at the venues previously consisted of staff monitoring metal detectors and using hand-held detectors as each guest arrives. In addition to guests expressing concerns that the process was intrusive, they also noted how long it took to queue for 10-15 minutes to be screened. For others, the wait time was even longer as many guests only arrive at the entrance for security checks in the last 15 minutes before the show starts, creating queues of close quarters. of 1,000 people. This resulted in stress for customers and security personnel, particularly when metal detectors reported false positives, requiring additional security checks on individuals as they emptied their pockets and opened their bags.

In its search for a more current and sophisticated approach to security, the Arts Complex conducted side-by-side comparisons of security screening systems for weapons detection, which resulted in the selection of the innovative solutions from Evolv Technology.

“Metal detectors cause a lot of anxiety for security personnel and guests. Not to mention they have a big footprint. The small footprint and artificial intelligence of Evolv Express allow guests to easily navigate screening corridors while the system identifies potential threats, reducing the number of false positives previously created by metal detectors,” said Aaron Eubanks, Director of Event Security, Denver Performing. Art complex. “This translates into a better customer experience through shorter lines with higher quality security and less intrusive checks.”

As an integral part of the Evolv Express systems, the Evolv Cortex AI software continuously improves the security of the art complex by detecting the latest weapon designs – a feature not possible with metal detectors. The Arts Complex security team also uses Evolv Insights analytics to perform in-depth analysis of every entry point, down to a detailed level of every minute and event. With the Evolv Insights heatmap, security can analyze where and when threats have arisen. This information informs staff to support visitor flow spikes and potential security threats.

“Entertainment venues have waited years to regain full capacity and are now once again welcoming guests for sold-out events. Yet, as gun violence continues to rise in this country, we believe venues must do everything in their power to ensure the safety of every guest and staff member,” said Peter George, CEO of Evolve Technology. “The Denver Performing Arts Complex is an example of a successful venue that has taken a proactive approach to safety while improving the overall experience for everyone who enters its theaters.”
