Vision-Box deploys surveillance system in Fortaleza ahead of FIFA World Cup


Vision-Box has 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 set up 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.

Whenever a fan enters the arena, their ticket is indexed with a picture taken by the surveillance system, to enable facial recognition identification if it’s needed.  Recognition is facilitated through the company’s Facelink software.

Following the deployment at Arena Castelão Stadium, a similar system will be implemented at Beria-Rio Stadium, another World Cup location.

Reported previously, Vision-Box recently became an IATA strategic partner. IATA is an international trade body that represents, serves and leads the air industry, to help shape it and support its affiliates.

A recently-published research report on the Russian biometrics market pointed to the 2018 Sochi World Cup as something expected to increase demand for physical access and logical access control systems.
