Videonetics Secures FIFA U-17 at Salt Lake Stadium, Kolkata

Videonetics, the leading visual computing platform development company, has been selected as the technology provider to secure Salt Lake Stadium, Kolkata, for the largest football tournament ‘FIFA U-17 World Cup’ India, 2017.

Covering an area of 76.40 acres, the stadium has the seating capacity of nearly 85,000. An international tournament like the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 attracts huge masses of both Indian and International visitors including dignitaries, VIPs and government officials. Considering underlying challenges associated with this massive occasion, Videonetics has successfully designed and deployed a combined solution of intelligent video management system (IVMS) and intelligent traffic management system (ITMS) comprising more than 250 cameras including 4K, full HD, 360° pan tilt & zoom, and specialized license plate cameras. The solution is not only to secure various areas like field area, entry & exit gates, galleries, VIP lounge, parking, food court and other sensitive locations, but also to respond to potential security issues in a proactive manner. The 24/7 real-time monitoring is being conducted at the command control center by the authorized officials, who can search, analyze and replay footages of an event.

Videonetics’ IVMS is based on a unified, monolithic architectural framework to capture and handle video and audio data over IP network in an efficient and elegant way. It provides investigation-friendly monitoring software at the front-end, while relegating all the complexity of the server software to the back-end. ITMS is specially designed and architected to replace tedious manual processes to track, regulate and analyze vehicle movements on entry/ exits, roads, and to enforce traffic rules for safety of citizens and their properties.

“Videonetics has shown great amount of professionalism in designing and developing solutions as per project need. I am sure that EMBEE Software and Videonetics as a team will set a benchmark in securing high profile and large-scale projects across the country,” said Uday Bhanu Bose, Sr. General Manager, BD at EMBEE.


This is a proud moment for Videonetics to be associated with Salt Lake Stadium in securing such a prestigious sports event. We are thankful to authorities involved and EMBEE Software for extending their support and commitment in completing the project on time.
