ActNow Promotions system provides the most innovative timing solution bringing a new level of convenience and dependability. Unlike traditional systems that use messy mats, ActNow uses over hanging antennas that capture the participants time. We like to compare it to an airplane that is approaching the landing runway communicating with the control tower. With this technology the antennas start to communicate with the participants timing chip about 40 feet from the finish line. The timing chip is continually communicating with the antennas as the participant approaches the finish line with the last read the antenna's receive as the time that is captured for the participant when he or she crosses the finish line. With this RFID technology we are able to almost always have 100% read success. Since no mats are needed, the system is perfect for running, cycling, trail runs, and almost anything your imagination can think of.
