Overview - Auto Check-In App

Overview

Event check-in is the first on-site touchpoint for most events, and the process is your first opportunity to make a good impression with your attendees. An optimized check-in process can help alleviate long lines and attendee confusion, which improves your attendee experience and helps set the tone of your event.

One way to optimize the check-in process is to automate it using self-check-in. Self-check-in kiosks and apps can enable attendees to check-in through a name search or QR code scan, print their badges, and enter your event quicker. But, self-check-in requires attendees to enter their name in a search interface, or present a QR code to be scanned which can slow the check-in process.

Facial comparison can make it even easier and quicker for attendees to check-in by eliminating the need to enter names or show QR codes. Attendees can have their picture taken and compared with a pre-registered attendee face collection in seconds.

Amazon Rekognition is a fully managed service that makes it easy to add deep learning powered visual analysis to your applications. With Amazon Rekognition, you can compare faces for a wide variety of use cases, including event attendee verification.

To help make it easier for customers to automate the check-in process, Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers the Auto Check-In App. This solution automatically provisions the products and services necessary to provide facial comparison for event attendee check-in.
