Park Media Private Limited announced that it would be coming up with Lauk Classroom, a video conferencing and web streaming platform for educators, in the coming week. Lauk Classroom is a part of 3 different solutions that Park Media Private Limited is offering. The other two are ‘Lauk’ a general video conferencing platform and ‘Lauk Studio’ for live streaming, webinars, and other services.
Anuranjan Jha, a Senior Journalist turned entrepreneur and founder of Park Media Private Limited said, “the Lauk platform is an Indian alternative for educators looking for platforms for e-education. He added that the homegrown video conferencing app will serve individual teachers to large organisations.
In a much respite to the privacy concerns raised after Zoom’s reportedly compromised interface in terms of privacy, Jha claimed the app comes with an ‘end-to-end encryption’ essential feature.
Lauk offers optional password protection on each call, multi-device login support. The users, especially the ones working from Home, for enhanced collaboration with colleagues can share the screen with the other side(s).
“Lauk will be launched in phases, and will also provide API’s for other Indian developers, so they can develop their own Video Conferencing applications harnessing Lauk’s infrastructure and technology,” said Varun Gupta who is co-founder and master in groundbreaking video streaming technologies.
Lauk’s Subscription will range from Rs 250 to Rs 1500 per user per month with special discounted packages for schools, colleges and other educational institutions.
Travel restrictions and other measures imposed due to Coronavirus have made web applications quite popular. With schools and colleges shut, business for video conferencing apps is bound to grow. Presently, the majority of the non-essential service sector manpower is working from home. Many business establishments are heavily reliant on these applications to coordinate their workforce and conduct meetings.
