Visitors want to move quickly through security checkpoints at a seamless pace, knowing they’re well-protected everywhere inside your venue—while your security teams want the assurance that they can reliably pinpoint and stop threats. This shouldn’t be a trade-off.

The Evolv weapons detection system combines powerful sensor technology with proven artificial intelligence (AI), security ecosystem integrations, and comprehensive venue analytics to ensure safer, more accurate threat detection at an unprecedented speed and volume.

Introducing Evolv Express®

Traditional security screening was not designed for today's dynamic threats. Unlike metal detectors, manual bag checks, wanding, and other traditional solutions, Evolv Express® offers an innovative approach to physical security screening.

Evolv Express accelerates physical security screening while maintaining the highest degree of weapons detection accuracy. It eliminates the friction that visitors, fans, patrons, employees and students typically experience moving through security by screening them in a touchless manner. This helps reduce the security risk of crowded security lines. It also drastically reduces false alarm rates and human errors by security guards.

The need to provide transparency without helping potential attackers is a fundamental paradox of the security industry. While aviation security has clear specifications classified by the Transportation Security Administration in the US and European Civil Aviation Conference in the EU, other venues for which advanced security screening is being used have not yet formalized set standards around transparency. Evolv is working to set that standard.

Denver Performing Arts Center Complex Marries Security and Patron Experience with Evolv Express® Systems to Produce an Unforgettable Show

Sitting on a 12-acre campus of 7 theaters and multiple event spaces in the heart of downtown Denver, the Arts Complex is home to four esteemed arts institutions—Colorado Ballet, Colorado Symphony, Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and Opera Colorado. There, traditional magnetometers the Arts Complex employed for security screening were intrusive—which negatively impacted the patron experience.

Metal detectors simply are not a viable option for schools.” They then applied for the GiveEvolv Grant - which aims to grant schools with a fully funded Express system and subscription for 4 years. The GiveEvolv board selected Fayette County Schools, concluding they had found the perfect inaugural candidate for the program.
