A tight jazz combo: 

Xerox and the Rochester International Jazz Festival

Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival

Hundreds of thousands of music fans flock to downtown Rochester, New York, each year to see marquee musicians like Diana Krall, Chris Botti, and Earth, Wind and Fire perform at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. Founded in 2002, it has quickly become one of the nation's most popular and most respected music festivals.

In our eighth year as title sponsor,  we use our technology and services to make sure all the festival processes run smoothly while delivering a memorable, personalized experience for every last one of the tens of thousands of fans.

How we help


Ticket Security

 

Deterring Fraud through Specialty Imaging

To prevent counterfeiting, festival passes, new Fast Pass wristbands at two of the busiest venues, and Xerox hospitality access wristbands are printed with fraud-resistant specialty imaging effects - FlourescentMark and MicroText. These text effects can only be printed with a Xerox FreeFlow digital front end combined with Xerox FreeFlow software. 

With security-encrypted passes, festival organizers know that only paid attendees will get to know new music, while counterfeiters won’t get in at all. Just one of the many ways we’re helping the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival work better.

Digital Signage

 

Helping Attendees Navigate the Festival and Stay Informed

With over 300 concerts playing at 19 different venues across nine days in the heart of one of New York’s biggest cities, it can be difficult to find your way around the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival and stay up-to-date on the latest news and information. That’s why festival organizers worked with Xerox to introduce six new interactive, digital displays at various popular locations throughout the grounds. 

The InfoCenters, enabled by Xerox® Digital Signage, will help attendees keep track of artists, schedules and updates, and locate and navigate to concert venues, food and beverages, restrooms, parking garages and lots, shuttle stops and more. We’re managing the flow of information so attendees can get lost in the music, not the festival.
