Ok, so I have a final year project - and while I've a few solutions to my problem, I need more ideas thinking outside the box.
The issue is, certain cinema's have an issue with cinema hopping, namely cineworld. E.G - Person A buys 1 ticket, and then once Person A has gone past the initial person who tells them what screen it is, they can go to another screen (or once the film has finished for that matter) - which the company wouldnt know unless it's sold out (which delays the screening as they then check everyone has tickets).
I know of odeons system, but I can't just use that, although it is another solution to talk about.
I mean, yeah.. extra people on each specific screen would obviously do the job to an extent, but its more money in the longer run, but I mean in terms of technology, think of the system as a whole.
All it needs to do for now, is prevent people from accessing the screen's without tickets - but don't think along the lines of a manned door
BTW, the reason I am not forwarding my idea's is so that people who do help, are not thinking along the same lines as me
Any help will be appreciated, Cheers
Barcode Scanners ( Football Stadium type )
RFID Tag's ( I forgot to mention I'm wanting to improve it for cineworld card holders) - Card machine that actually aquires ticket's instead of waiting in queue's.
