It is the fourth largest municipal corporation in India being responsible for a population of 6.8 million in an area of 741 km2. In view of monitoring COVID-19 cases and fighting effectively, local Karnataka Government and BBMP took an early initiative and decided to set-up the war room to help health offcials to monitor this situation. This war room was the first control and command center for COVID-19 crisis management in all of India. This idea was given by the Commissioner to Government and approved on war footing basis, given a deadline of 48 hours to inaugurate this new facility with full functioning Network Operations Center.

In a very fast track scenario, this ambitious project was executed in just 36 hours from the time Aurora Multimedia India received the green signal from its partner Prodigital India Pvt Ltd.

Prodigital worked together with Aurora Multimedia India (Powered by AVDynamics India Pvt Ltd) to develop and propose the complete sophisticated AV solution to the client. Since the set up was 24/7, Aurora India along with its partner recommended to go with Aurora’s VLX 4K AV over IP solution. Aurora India stocks most products in their facility, making it possible to execute on such a short notice. Since this being a very critical project, the Aurora India tech team guided Prodigital team during the complete installation and configuration processes.  

Every member of the Aurora Multimedia Team worked together to get this achieved. This helped Prodigital complete and commission the very fast track war room project within 36 hours of offcial confirmation from client. 
This is truly inspiring and proud moment for Aurora Multimedia India which helped relentlessly in the fight. The Aurora Multimedia USA team also extended their support and expertise which really helped during these diffcult times, which makes it clear that Aurora Multimedia product surely fall under essential commodity items to fight COVID-19 cases.

Aurora’s AV over IP solutions combine a variety of 4K IP technologies and features under one unified protocol using a simplified topology. Uncompressed video with zero-latency, visually lossless video with low latency, seamless switching, video wall and multiviewer modes, digital audio, USB 2.0, Ethernet, and control are just some of the core capabilities of Aurora’s AV over IP technology. Utilizing the bandwidth of a standard 1Gbps copper (VLX Series) or 10Gbps copper or fiber (IPX Series), the products support large scalable audio/video matrixing, and it does so while replacing multiple technologies and products with a "single-box" distributed platform. The days of needing a separate AV switcher, control system, video wall processor, audio/DSP converter, and more are a thing of the past!
