Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts Trailblazes Next-generation Security Screening with Evolv Express®

The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City is iconic in many ways and has blazed new trails ever since its first performance facility opened in 1962. With its popularity and acclaim only building over the years, the need for a customer-friendly security technology that does not compromise security grew. A number of venues have a seating capacity of over 1,000, which meant significant wait times and queues would form at security screening before the start of performances. When searching for such technology back in 2017, they couldn't find one. Until Evolv Technology came along with its first touchless security screening product - The Evolv Edge®. Lincoln Center became our first customer and their feedback and patience were fundamental to the later development of the Evolv Express and where we are today as a company. Through implementing Evolv Express, Lincoln Center was able to achieve the following and more:  

  • Eliminated ingress queues to load guests into venues before show start times
  • 70% reduction in false positives
  • Continuously leverage analytics to improve efficiency and efficacy
