Another Pittsburgh Landmark Turns To Evolv For Its Screening Needs
WALTHAM, Mass. – (March 23, 2023) – Evolv Technology (NASDAQ: EVLV), the leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based weapons detection security screening, today announced it has been named the Official Fan Screening Provider of Acrisure Stadium.
Evolv’s state-of-the-art Evolv Express® screening solution is located at Acrisure Stadium’s busiest gates, screening the vast majority of fans as they enter the venue. Acrisure Stadium hosts concerts and other events as well.
Evolv Express uses powerful sensor technology with AI to provide safer, more accurate threat detection at unprecedented volume and speed. Fans walk through without always stopping or having to open bags. Evolv’s technology allows security officials to differentiate between threats and the everyday items people carry in their pockets and bags, which reduces long lines and allows guests to make their way directly into the stadium without invasive security experiences.
“Our fans are amazing, and we needed to make sure we were providing them with the kind of security solution they deserve,” said Jimmie Sacco, Vice President of Operations and Stadium Management at Acrisure Stadium. “Evolv not only helps make entry safe and seamless for the best fan base in sports, but from the very start, they have come on site multiple times to monitor, support and make sure everything was running smoothly.”
Acrisure Stadium turned to Evolv after officials saw the success of the technology at other venues, as well as in its own city with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. Evolv will also be used at PNC Park for the 2023 season.
“As the home of one of the most storied franchises in football, Acrisure Stadium knows what great defense looks like,” said John Baier, Evolv’s Vice President of Sports. “Evolv brings that defensive mentality from the field to the gates, helping keep fans safe without impacting their enjoyment of the event.”
Acrisure Stadium is the latest sports facility to partner with Evolv to provide a safe fan experience. In addition to PNC Park in Pittsburgh, stadiums using Evolv Technology include SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, Tennessee’s Nissan Stadium, and Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts, among others.
