Malaysian ticketing platform Ticket2U has launched its facial recognition check-in facility for events and venues.

The ticketing firm will now allow fans to enter an event using an image of their face, as well as providing the option to use e-tickets via QR code scanning.

Ticket2U states that event organisers can choose to either prepare their own devices with the technology, rent devices and technical crews or install a kiosk, permanent placement, integration with gate, turnstile or tripod.

The company will then charge an event per ticket/face scan, which will cost “less than cents” each.

Organisers only need a browser and internet as the company runs everything on the cloud.

Ticket2U said: “Facial recognition is the fastest way to recognise a person without touching (contactless) or searching for an E-Ticket with phone or hardcopy. [It also means] having less crew and device rental, minimises human error and automates the check-in process.

“Facial Recognition Check-In is definitely the future for the post-pandemic world, as it offers touchless, contactless, fast and efficient entry for events, theme parks and more usages. We believe with this implemented in Malaysia, it will bring our nation’s digitalisation to a jumping level and provide ease for all citizens in this new normal.”
