As digital ticketing continues to evolve, including mobile tickets without barcodes utilizing NFC
contactless technology, the partnership lays the groundwork for a secure, flexible future of the
ticketing industry. Infinite Peripherals and Tickets.com aim to empower both content-owners and
their patrons in a new way, enabling a smarter and safer way to attend live games, shows,
concerts and more.
The NFC solution integrates Infinite Peripherals’ Infinea Mobile Point-of-Sale® (mPOS) and
Infinea Bluepad product lines with technology enabling iPhone and Apple Watch users to gain
access to live events using contactless passes or tickets in Apple Wallet. Users will also be able
to access Auto-Presentation features for single or multiple passes, where tickets will
automatically be identified via NFC on the mPOS terminal, even when a smart device is locked.
In addition, the new application works to instantly validate the use of real tickets versus
counterfeits. Infinite Peripherals worked closely with Tickets.com to integrate with their new
proprietary Alfred solution to create a custom program that can automatically confirm the validity
of a ticket or pass using Tickets.com’s unique identifier, whether they are scanned, manually
entered, or read via NFC.
“Contactless technology is rapidly transforming the way we process various forms of
transactions and it’s only fitting that we start to bring this seamless experience to live events,”
said Jose Vidal, V.P. Global Sales at Infinite Peripherals. “With our innovative technology in
collaboration with Tickets.com, fans, concert goers, and theater lovers will enjoy a fun,
frictionless experience with their iPhone and Apple Watch when attending shows.”
“Partnering with Infinite Peripherals, Tickets.com was able to develop and deploy an Enterprise access
control solution, leveraging its own infrastructure as well as Infinite Peripherals hardware and software
teams and expertise,” said Derek Argobright, Chief Technology Officer, Tickets.com. “The end result was
a solution that could securely read and scan digital tickets in a new way, utilizing contactless passes on
iPhone and Apple Watch without the traditional form of barcodes. We are really proud of the
collaboration and believe that ultimately the solution will create a fun, frictionless experience for every
