World Cup Soccer Fans Enjoy Qylur's Automated, Security-Screening Kiosk

Commercial Deployment of the Qylatron Draws Rave Reviews in Brazil; Security Checkpoint Innovator Poised for More High-Profile Global Implementations

PALO ALTO, CA and CURITIBA, BRAZIL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- Qylur Security Systems, a user experience-driven homeland security technology company based in Silicon Valley, today announced that it has deployed its Qylatron™ Entry Experience Solution for security screening at all 2014 FIFA World Cup™ games taking place at the Arena da Baixada stadium in Curitiba, Brazil. The recently renovated Parana-state venue is one of the most modern and best-appointed soccer stadiums in Brazil, with a capacity of 43,900.

Agogo Marketing Promocional, the event operations company for the World Cup games in the cities of Curitiba and Salvador, contracted with Qylur to improve the security-screening experience for thousands of fans attending four group play matches at Arena da Baixada.

"The Qylatron automated detection system not only provided highly reliable bag screening, it also put fans 'back in charge' of their own belongings as the nature of the Qylatron allowed fans to place their items into the honeycomb shaped device -- that conducts five concurrent bag scans -- and expedite their entry into the stadium," said Hugo Ramos, director for Agogo Marketing Promocional. "Rather than having stadium officials hand search personal bags, the Qylatron protects the personal dignity of fans and preserves the entertaining aspects of mass sporting events like the World Cup. We look forward to working with Qylur again as we set a new standard for fan experiences around the world."

In addition to ensuring an expanded inflow of fans, the Qylatron -- with its unique convenience features designed into the solution -- also made it the top choice for servicing fans requiring special assistance due to disabilities, as well as seniors. The colorful front and back panels of the Qylatron made for an attractive showpiece that helped the stadium stand out at the entry point, and also raised the overall level of fan enjoyment as they got to experience the security checkpoint of the future. Fans were fascinated with the Qylatron and many stopped to take photos and "selfies" with the striking entry system.

The Qylatron solution is designed for sports and entertainment venues, monuments, and transportation hubs. Launched in late 2013 to intense global interest, the industry-first Qylatron entry-experience solution combines the initial greeting and ticketing experience for fans with security screening. The Qylatron scans guest tickets and screens bags with far greater efficiency than manual-driven alternatives, detects multiple security threats, reduces security costs with up to 50-percent less staffing, and improves the guest experience with a self-service concept.

The Qylatron expedites and upgrades a venue's security by performing five concurrent bag scans with patented, multi-threat detection that employs the fusion of multiple sensors. Equipped with an intelligent, threat-learning engine and ongoing updates, the Qylatron is able to respond to ever-evolving threats, both locally and globally.

"We heard from dozens of soccer fans at the World Cup about how much fun they had personally interacting with the Qylatron. This is especially gratifying as it validates the core principle of why I founded Qylur -- to preserve human liberty while offering the most advanced security-screening technology in the industry," said Lisa Dolev, CEO and founder of Qylur. "We have made a major impression at arguably the most high-profile sporting event in the world, and have shown the transformation we are bringing to venue security and guest experience. We look forward to more commercial deployments at large public venues this year."
