Chiseling its own abilities, innovating and emerging out as a winner is something that World University of Design excels at. It stands tall again as the talented students of WUD come home as winners of the most prestigious Design Challenges in India – Rugved Patil (M.Des Transportation Design) won the Automotive Design Competition (ADC) organized by Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), Gokul Gopi (M.Des Industrial Design) and his team won the D’source Corona Design Challenge organized by IIT Bombay, A third team (calling themselves Team Pentagon) comprising of Abhay Pratap Singh, Anand Singh and Mehak Singal (all from B.Des Product Design) and their faculty mentors Aditi Parikh and Rohit Kothari have reached the finals of Toycathon 2021 – the inter-ministerial initiative of Government of India!
Rugved Patil stood second in the recently concluded SIAM ADC 2021 that revolved around the theme “Influence of the New Normal on the Future of Automotive Design” amongst one hundred and fifty odd design aspirants from across the country. It is a matter of utmost pleasure that this future automobile designer has secured himself a spot in the country’s biggest Automotive Design Competition showcased his talent by showcasing a segway type shared mobility solution for the gen glass for the year 2040.
Gokul Gopi and his team on the other hand designed a Japanese-inspired concept on “Sanitization of Rooms for Aggregate hotel chains that provide an online booking platform” keeping in mind the need of a post pandemic world – the very theme of the challenge this year. In an Open Design Challenge of choice, IDC School of Design, IIT Bombay allowed a sea of infinite ideas to the participants to present pertaining to sanitation, health and hygiene across industries and fields for a better India.
In their winning attempt, the team displayed a model that could let customers take normal vacations and feel safe back again allowing them to witness live streaming of sanitization of their hotel room prior to check-in! This would help achieve consumer satisfaction, enhancement of tourism and business building opportunities for holiday agencies and organized hotel chain companies.
Team Pentagon’s toy project will prove that superior toys & games can be created by Indians in India. Toycathon is an immensely ambitious mission of the current government, under AatmaNirbhar Bharat project, inviting talented young designers and thinkers to develop the gaming and toy industry of India. It is organized by Ministry of Education’s Innovation Cell with support from All India Council for Technical Education, Ministry of Women and Child Development, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Ministry of MSME, Ministry of Textiles and Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

Empire: Battle of Conquerors is a game that revolves around military strategy and resource management. Borrowing its premise from the popular empire-building game ‘Age of Empires’ it transports you to a universe in which war with neighboring territories is imminent. It’s up to you to fortify your territory while you fight to expand your domains.
The background story behind Empire: Battle of Conquerors is as follows: you play the king of an enormous territory who, because of one bad decision, has lost everything. It’s now up to you to start over, building a kingdom from scratch. To do this you have to construct buildings to help you investigate technological advances and recruit soldiers to help you defend your kingdom from enemy invaders. Likewise, you have to send colonists to discover new lands, recruit soldiers and train them for battle, and basically, prepare for victory or defeat in your quest to dominate everything.
In terms of visuals, the graphics in Empire: Battle of Conquerors are completely inspired by the original Age of Empires. If you’re feeling nostalgic, then this is a huge plus.
Empire: Battle of Conquerors is a strategy and management game that may not offer anything super original, but it is a whole lot of fun. Especially since it’s based on one of the most popular sagas of the genre.

• MPEG-5 Part 2 LCEVC (Low Complexity Enhancement Video Coding) achieves ISO FDIS standard status (ISO 23094-2)
• Independently validated to deliver higher quality at up to 40% lower bitrates, LCEVC enhances the compression & computational efficiency of any codec on any device
• LCEVC is already being trialled by a number of companies spanning many industry verticals where high-quality, low-latency video is core to business success
V-Nova, a leading provider of video compression solutions, today announces a milestone achievement in MPEG-5 Part 2 LCEVC (Low Complexity Enhancement Video Coding) being promoted to MPEG/ISO final draft international standard. V-Nova co-chaired the standard’s development and contributed to the foundational technology upon which it is built.
MPEG-5 Part 2 LCEVC is the first internationally accredited enhancement standard for any existing and future video compression scheme. It enhances the compression performance of any base video codec (e.g., AVC, HEVC, AV1, EVC or VVC) and offers improved picture quality at up to 40% lower bitrates for both live and VoD delivery. Additionally, it provides a 2-4x improvement in encoding computational efficiency. LCEVC enables greener and more cost-effective video delivery workflows whilst maintaining compatibility with the device ecosystem of the enhanced codec. It empowers services to improve quality-of-experience for viewers without having to duplicate workflows or wait for device replacement cycles.
Guido Meardi, CEO and co-founder at V-Nova, says, “We are extremely proud to have contributed to this innovative standard, as part of such a successful collaboration with industry leaders. LCEVC is poised to immediately deliver a step-change in usage and profitability to a host of existing services. The standard has broad applicability, we are already seeing great traction and are committed to ensuring rapid adoption.”
In live sports delivery when serving millions of concurrent streams to all kinds of devices, LCEVC provides greater reliability, reducing buffering events and increasing quality. It also helps to minimize latency, facilitating new business models such as betting and other real-time interactivity applications.
Luis Vicente, Group CEO Eleven Sports; “As a leading global sports and e-sports media destination, we are extremely excited by the game-changing opportunities presented by MPEG-5 LCEVC. It will change the world of sports, media & entertainment video delivery, providing a better service at a substantially lower cost. I am also convinced that it will play an important role in our journey towards zero latency. We are definitely looking to become an early adopter.”
Hyper-scale operators like social media and e-sports platforms are also looking at LCEVC as a key tool to drive enhanced user experiences through higher-quality and faster stream start-up whilst also reducing per user costs.
Karam Malhotra, Global VP Revenues and Growth and CEO India, SHAREit; “As one of the world’s largest social networks, LCEVC provides us with the opportunity to drive growth and profitability, by increasing user engagement while reducing operating costs.”
LCEVC is enabling urgently required advances in video conferencing. These include remote surgery and training in the medical domain with higher-resolution video over the same bandwidth connection.
Dr Nadine Hachach-Haram, CEO/Founder of Proximie; “When you’re dealing with someone’s health like we do at Proximie, the quality and reliability of the video link is not an add-on, its paramount. MPEG-5 LCEVC can enable us to deliver global access to healthcare in a reliable, effective and cost-efficient way.”
For global broadcasting services, LCEVC is enabling a speedy, seamless and cost-effective upgrade to higher picture quality across all devices regardless of bandwidth.
Fathi Albatie, Broadcast Services Lead at Al Jazeera Media Network says; “LCEVC will become a cornerstone of video content distribution thanks to its compatibility with all baseline codecs (H.264, HEVC, AV1 etc.). I can see LCEVC shaking up the streaming business immediately.”
The ecosystem of LCEVC support is also building rapidly amongst a number of key industry vendors.
Thomas Kramer, VP Product at MainConcept, “We’ve evaluated LCEVC-enhancement with our AVC and HEVC encoders and have been very impressed by the results particularly for important new use cases like 8k delivery. LCEVC is the very definition of a future-proof technology by virtue of working with both existing and future codecs, and we look forward to further exploring its integration across our codec line-up.”
