MONTREAL, Jan. 14, 2021 /CNW Telbec/ - VOTI Detection Inc. ("VOTI" or "the Company") (TSXV: VOTI), a leading-edge Canadian technology company that develops latest-generation X-ray security systems based on 3D Perspective™ technology and Pacers Sports & Entertainment, an integrated sports and entertainment company with operations that include the Indiana Pacers, Indiana Fever, Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Pacers Gaming, Pacers Foundation, Inc., and operations of Bankers Life Fieldhouse, today announced a partnership to provide a lower-touch security and screening process for guests attending Bankers Life Fieldhouse events.
Last week, the Pacers announced that a limited number of tickets for upcoming home games will be available for sale beginning on January 19. At the same time, the organization announced a series of important health and safety strategies designed to make the Fieldhouse experience as safe as possible. A key part of this strategy is the introduction of fifteen VOTI Matrix Series scanners installed in December 2020 that are designed to x-ray bags and purses for guests entering the Fieldhouse that eliminate the need for direct staff contact and expedite the entrance process.
Additionally, the partnership means the Pacers will be the first professional sporting team to leverage VotiINSIGHTSTM – VOTI's web-based platform for the centralized, remote management and analytics of VOTI Detection's XR3D scanners.
"We could not be more proud to partner with such a wonderful and well respected professional sports organization like Pacers Sports & Entertainment," commented Rory Olson, President & CEO of VOTI Detection. "Our leading edge technology underlies our X-Ray security systems and we are certain that our Matrix Series scanners along with our VOTIInsights management platform will provide Bankers Life Fieldhouse with the highest quality of security required for their guests."
"As we work to create the safest environment possible, partnerships like this one provide the technologies to deliver a world-class, lower-contact experience," said Rick Fuson, PS&E President & COO. "We understand how much this matters to our fans, and we are thrilled to partner on these efforts with an experienced industry-leader like VOTI."
