The year between 2008 and 2009 saw the beginning of smart classrooms where learning was on interactive whiteboard & projector integrated systems, backed by a central server to stream content across classrooms. But what if a student wanted to access data offline? The client’s focus was on lending learning material digitally and making it available at all times. In the absence of pay per click, content on-demand, DTH or Netflix, Television and Computers emerged as two of the most important and highly distributed devices to target what the client wanted to achieve. However, dependency on the Internet was another major challenge. Parents wanted to experiment but considered online restraining in times of a rundown of the internet.
Infini developed software for Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems allowing viewing rights only on these devices. If a user would try to record the content displayed on the screen using a screen recorder, the application would not start and if anyone would try to capture the content by placing a physical camera in front of the screen, a pixel-based watermark would appear which could be tracked from the user information registered. Similarly we developed SD cards for mobile phone and an online portal with the same set of security features across all products. We also developed a LAN based B2B solution offering the same features. With such a secure and easy to use Online and Offline e-learning system, we increased reach to 2 Lakh pen drives and around 80,000 media boxes. The use of Kernel Programming, Embedded Systems, .NET, Android Programming, PHP, etc. have been extensive in making this a huge success.
