ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill., Jul 08, 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- A global leader in the management, marketing and sale of live event tickets for arenas, stadiums, theaters and clubs, Outbox Technology CRB Inc. uses the Linea Pro from Infinite Peripherals, Inc(IPC), the leading developer of mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) devices, to more efficiently and accurately conduct business around the world and get event-goers in the door and in their seats quickly.                                        

IPC’s first-to-market iOS peripheral barcode scanner and magnetic stripe reader, the Linea Pro attaches to an Apple® iPod touch® or iPhone® and runs on custom software to validate tickets and RFID wristbands in real time for event access.

“The Linea Pro leverages the Apple hardware in a novel way, giving us access to the iOS platform and converting a consumer device into an effective enterprise-level solution,” said Eric O. Brousseau, product manager for access control at Outbox. “In addition to the ‘wow factor’ here compared with conventional industrial handheld devices, the Linea Pro lets us leverage the iOS platform to develop state-of-the-art solutions.”                                        

Based in Montreal, Canada, and with offices in Los Angeles and London, Outbox has deployed this mobile ticket and wristband scanning solution in more than 100 major concert and sports venues in 20 countries,  including Staples Center in Los Angeles, Target Center in Minneapolis, Caesars® Palace Colosseum in Las Vegas and the O2 Arena in London. To date, the company has used the devices to scan more than 60 million tickets.                                        

Brousseau noted that the compact Linea Pro system, which is more powerful, versatile and cost-effective than its previous handheld devices, has earned universal positive reviews. “Our employees find this solution lighter and more user-friendly, with more wireless connectivity options (WiFi and wireless) and media read capabilities.”                                        

The Linea Pro comes also can be used in various settings for mobile POS, expediting inventory management, asset tracking, ID verification, lead tracking, inspection/work flow, dispatch, time/labor and lab and healthcare. Software development resources and tools are available for the product so customers can program scanner and reader functions into their own software application.

Monty Python Reunion Tickets Sell Out in 43 Seconds, at London O2

Robert Dex, THE INDEPENDENT

The remaining members of Monty Python have announced four more shows after their reunion at London's O2 sold out in less than a minute.
 

The veteran comedy troupe - John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones - announced they were getting back together last week.

A spokesman for the Pythons said the 1 July event sold out in 43.5 seconds this morning and tickets for four further shows had immediately gone on sale.

The concerts at the venue in Greenwich, southeast London, come more than 30 years after their last stage performance.

Speaking at last week's press conference, they said they would include some of their most famous routines including the dead parrot sketch.

Their last major live show was at the Hollywood Bowl in 1982.
