RFID Event Technology Explained
What is RFID?
RFID stands for “Radio Frequency Identification”; It’s a clever technology where digital data encoded in RFID tags is captured and identified by a reader via radio waves.
RFID for events is similar to barcoding in that the data is read by a device, however unlike barcoding, the RFID Scanner is able to write data back to the RFID tag, manipulate it and interact with it.
Another advantage of using RFID event technology is that the RFID Scanners are able to read RFID tags outside the “line-of-sight”, while barcode scanners must be aligned with an optical sensor (camera or laser), making it impossible to work with when the lightning is not “just perfect”.
What are RFID Tags?
RFID Tags are essentially a circuit which stores the tag’s data, and an antenna for transmitting and receiving signals. RFID tags dont have a battery, instead they receive energy from the radio waves generated by the scanner.
RFID Tags can take any form factor, like RFID wristbands, badges, cards, keychains, etc.
The data stored in the Tixify RFID tags is encrypted making it more secure than barcodes, and can be used to track individual attendees, tickets, balances and other interactions, something that is not possible with barcodes.
