Live Crowd Control – Digital Signage

Which theatres or meeting rooms are full? What are the current wait times?

Digital signage has always been a very effective tool, helping visitors better plan their visit and communicating messages in a seamless and eye-catching way.

And because digital signs can be updated in under one minute, one of the main benefits has always been managing visitors’ expectations – helping them decide where to go next.

This has been especially useful in the past for very busy events but is likely to become a prerequisite for all events for the foreseeable future.

By combining with intelligent sensors (crowd density cameras) and heat maps, digital signage gains superpowers – with the ability to automatically control access to specific zones or theatres, estimating current wait times and directing visitors to streaming theatres if the live one is nearing capacity.

✓  Live Theatre capacity

✓  Queueing times

✓  Displays alternative choices if capacity is full – live streaming theatres and currently open theatres

✓  Updated instantly per theatre by AV technicians

✓  Can be integrated with connected sensors (cameras, badge scanners or device trackers)



✓ Live traffic and access control

✓ Can be integrated with connected sensors (cameras, badge scanners or device trackers)


Q: How much does the solution cost?

A: Depending on the size of the required screen and lead time, organisers should budget around £1,100 per screen + cost of sensors which may already be provided by the venue.

Q: What kind of sensors does the solution use?

A: The preferred sensors are density cameras that are installed in key hotspots around the event. These cameras anonymise snapshots every minute and provide the screens with estimated crowd density in each area.

Q: What about privacy? Are the crowd density cameras GDPR-compliant?

A: The solution is fully GPDR-compliant. The sensors do not collect or store any personal data. The images are fully anonymised and are never stored.

Q: How many sensors & screens will my event require?

A: This will depend on the layout and venue but a good rule-of-thumb is 1 screen and 1 camera per 1,000 visitors.

Q: What are the lead times? How do we get started?

A: The first step is to provide us with the current floorplan which will allow us to mark locations for screens and sensors and to provide you with a quote based on that.
