Revolutionizing the AV industry with the emphasis on simplification aptly summarised by ZeroMiles design philosophy: Less is More.
ZeroMiles is a NASSCOM incubated company established in 2016, specializing in Audio-Visual solutions, cloud-centric collaboration, and communication solutions.

ZeroMiles is passionate about offering the most suitable solution for every unique business requirement and adopts a brand-agnostic design approach without force-fitting off-the-shelf single OEM products. The primary inspiration to start ZeroMiles was probably the understanding that the AV industry was in a rut with design ideas and approaches which were out of tune with the latest needs of enterprises. The traditional solution providers were providing hardware-intensive, OEM-driven rigid solutions which overlooked the advantages that cloud technology, AI and
Machine Learning bring to the collaboration environment. Bringing simplicity without compromising on functionality formed the basis of the approach adopted by ZeroMiles. The new approach turned traditional design approaches on its head with ‘less’ meaning ‘more’ now. The ZeroMiles approach minimizes hardware footprint, lowers maintenance costs, and brings simplicity to board rooms and meeting rooms. In designing solutions, ZeroMiles ensures that the best of products and services are blended with maximum protection for existing investment.

AV Sector and Its Future Across India
Failure of most AV strategies in enterprises happens on account of the complexity of the solution, problems in interoperability with new technologies, the constraints related to AV equipment being tied to specific rooms. In most traditional meeting rooms, it is unthinkable for most people to have a video conference without active IT intervention as the solution is complex to handle. Furthermore, the ability to include ad-hoc audio participants from landline, office telephone systems, and mobile phones is also one of the major requirements which traditional approaches fail to fulfil. Lastly, most thriving organizations realize that the number of physical meeting and conference rooms cannot be increased to accommodate all demands for collaboration spaces.
The solution is to create meeting rooms in the cloud with people collaborating on the device of their choice from the location of their choice without bothering about the availability of meeting rooms. ZeroMiles Technologies brings solutions that can help overcome these constraints and help enterprises create a simple, easy-to-use collaboration environment integrating disparate systems into one homogeneous collaboration environment for the enterprise.
Enterprises are looking for simplicity as one of the primary features in AV solutions and increasingly looking away from the traditional hardware intensive, OEM locked solutions of yesteryears.
Serving customers across 50+ cities and towns of India.
Mr. Pankaj Jha says, “Solutions need to be designed such that it should be adaptable in terms of scale. Collaboration and communication between two organizations or two human minds must be agnostic of their physical locations meaning, it really should not matter whether one is communicating with a colleague across the office aisle or a supplier across the seven seas. Communication between people needs to be as if they were separated by zero distance (or as we say ‘ZeroMiles’) between them. A ‘ZeroMiles’ communication enables an individual to easily and cost-effectively connect, communicate and collaborate with another individual or a group of individuals without any consideration to the physical distance or the device they use to communicate.”
Businesses are beginning to look for
- Protecting their existing investment in traditional infrastructure in the best possible manner while blending cloud collaboration solutions.
- Ability to extend the ability to collaborate to non-traditional devices like smartphones, smart displays, and tablets.
- To extend effective collaboration to areas outside traditional conference rooms.
- Ability to easily record and retrieve video and audio calls from the device of choice at any location.
- Simple, intuitive, user-friendly interface requiring ‘zero’ learning for users.
- Add video/audio participants from any location on any device as easily as making a telephone call.
- Add audio-only participants when video connection may not be possible.
- Video centric Web collaboration and annotation features.
- Cost-effective town hall meetings on the same infrastructure without additional expense.
