Vision-Box has opened a new office in Brazil to support the company’s increasing growth in Latin America.

Located in Sao Paulo, the new office is set to consolidate all of the company’s operations in Latin America.

According to Leidivino Natal da Silva, the director of Vision-Box Brazil and Latin America, the new office is “a logical step in the growth trajectory of the company in this region,” and it “means a renewed commitment to Latin America and allows us not only to assume a closer connection to our extensive customer base, but also to correspond to the growing demand for our solutions in a challenging and dynamic market that is looking for differentiated, innovative solutions supported by a powerful business case.”

Reported previously, Vision-Box recently deployed a video surveillance system at the Arena Castelão Stadium in preparation for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

According to the company, the particular surveillance setup includes over 250 IP surveillance cameras, operated through the Vision-Box Video Management System SentrySpider, with integration to the building management system, as well as ticketing access control.

In addition, Vision-Box was recently awarded a contract to deploy 64 multimodal eGates at all terminals of the Hamad International Airport in Qatar. These eGates, which support face, iris and fingerprint identification, will be linked into the advanced Identity Management infrastructure of the Ministry of the Interior of the State of Qatar.

Vision-Box is best known for its automated border gates, which it says have been deployed in 30 international airports. As well, says the company, it has deployed over 3000 biometric identification and document verification units all over the world.
