The central government, as part of its Make in India initiative, has come up with the Innovation Challenge in April, inviting software companies and developers to build a India based video conferencing solution.
In the first stage of the innovation challenge the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEIT), Government of India, has shortlisted 10 companies with better ideation. The company is expected to develop a prototype for the solution and has been given a grant of Rs 5 lakh. In the second round, 3 companies will be shortlisted to build a complete solution and the winning solution will be deployed in central and state government entities across the country.
Soulpage IT Solutions is one among the 10 companies competing in building video conferencing solutions for India.
Soulpage is a Hyderabad based two-year-old startup that works on futuristic technologies like Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning. Our passion for technology makes us deliver innovative solutions. Our vision is to build enterprise solutions integrated with data science and AI components that are competitively priced to cater to all segments of the market.
“ It’s a matter of great pride for us, to be shortlisted, to build the first made-in-India video communication solution. There has been a growing concern about user privacy, security, and trust in some of the existing video solutions. As an IT superpower, there’s a high expectation in the country to build world-class tech solutions. Government programs like this will encourage startups like us to build innovative solutions at par with global standards” says Murali Karuturi, CEO, Soulpage IT.
Before the Govt. of India called for this challenge, our technology team was working on building next-gen video conferencing solutions to scale the TeleMedicine and E-learning sectors. The idea is to build an intuitive and secure video conferencing solution that is custom-tailored for Indian conditions and is very adaptive. “Libero – Our VC solution can accommodate 300 people in a single conference at this point of time and our plan is to scale it to 1000 people in the future”
