RCA, Gemini TRAZE and NXP Semiconductors bring the “Next Experience” of Electronic event ticketing to the world of cricket - By NXP Semiconductors

RFID-Trial Deployment to allow fast, secure access for over 1000 VIP Guests at the ICC Champions Trophy Cricket Semi-final in Jaipur.

Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA), Gemini TRAZE RFID, NXP Semiconductors, and Smartag, have announced the deployment of RFID-ticketing technology within the Jaipur cricket grounds at the semi-final match of the ICC Champions Trophy Cricket 2006. This match, to be held on November 2, 2006, is the world’s first such deployment for a cricket event.

With the success of NXP’s RFID based ticketing solution deployed at all 12 stadiums in Germany for the recent World Cup Soccer, NXP & Gemini TRAZE RFID worked with the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) to deploy a ”hands-free” RFID ticketing solution for VIP guests. The guests holding these highly secure tickets simply need to walk through the gate for quick and convenient entry into the stadium.

Mr. Anant Vyas, Media Chief of RCA for the ICC Champions Trophy 2006 mentioned in his remarks, “In our quest of deploying the cutting edge technology in this event to facilitate the perfect staging of cricket matches, RCA is proud to be a pioneer to adopt and successfully demonstrate the world class, effortless ticketing experience which sets a bench mark in secure electronic ticketing experience in partnership with NXP Semiconductors, the world’s leading supplier of RFID chips & Gemini TRAZE RFID, leading manufacturer of RFID Tags, Readers & Antennas”. RCA is the first state cricket association in India to have adopted electronic ticketing system for an International Cricketing event. Being adopted on a pilot project basis now, RCA plans to introduce this ticketing experience on a full-fledged basis for future events. With the success of this pilot, the use of this technology will become a regular feature at the State Cricket Academy.

Speaking on the occasion Mr. Ashok Chandak, Executive Director, NXP Semiconductors India commented, “NXP is proud to bring the world’s latest & proven electronic ticketing technology to an international cricket event in India. By participating in high-profile events such as these, our ultimate goal is to contribute positively to developing the local industry for RFID applications. We want to provide “Next Experience” of the technology application that is Insightful, Inventive and make people’s lives simpler and more enjoyable”

“We are quite excited about this opportunity of providing the first RFID enabled ticketing solution for a sports event in India and appreciate the visionary approach of RCA in making this possible”, said Mr. Pradhyumna T Venkat, CEO, Gemini TRAZE RFID Pvt. Ltd. “The RFID based ticketing system promotes security and facilitates faster & convenient patron entry into the stadium”. Commenting on the company’s vision, Mr. R. Ramkumar, Chairman, Gemini TRAZE RFID Pvt. Ltd. said “Supporting & enabling innovative applications like these are in line with our objective of commoditizing RFID technology to an extent of making it affordable, technically viable & simple for immediate deployment”.

NXP provides the IC chips based on the proven ICODE technology, while Gemini TRAZE RFID is providing the indigenous reader terminals, “walk thru” gate antenna and the system integration expertise. Smartag provides the tickets into which the chips are embedded. These RFID-enabled tickets, which each contain an ICODE transponder IC and a unique ticket number, comply fully with the ISO 15693 standard.
