Over 10,000 partygoers made BeB the party of the year at Montreal’s Palais des Congres. For an event this popular barcode ticket validation was essential. 12 wireless scanners were used to scan and validate tickets in real time as patrons entered the event. To handle the volume of people entering the event the system was benchmarked at 20 scans per second. The system detected and prevented 161 duplicate tickets, and was used by Fire Marshalls to verify event counters.
