Libingan ng mga Bayani Installs Audio-Visual System and Inaugurates World-Class Comfort Rooms

Installation of ICT Equipment at LNMB




          To the fallen soldiers and true HEROES of the land who gave their lives for the country is indeed an act beyond the call of duty. It is but fitting that their families, relatives and friends should be given the chance to have the final glimpse and bid farewell to their heroes on their interment.

         Onward to being a world class Philippine Army and in line with its thrust to boost the morale and welfare of soldiers and their families, the Philippine Army launched the Project e-lamay, a project intended to provide access, through Internet connectivity, to relatives and friends abroad and those who cannot attend personally who wish to view the wake of their loved ones in the mortuaries of Libingan ng mga Bayani. Project e-lamay was made possible through the joint efforts of Army Signal Regiment (ASR) and Army Support Command, Philippine Army (ASCOM, PA).

        The Internet connectivity will be provided by Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT), a major stakeholder of the Philippine Army, with a 100 MBPS Internet bandwidth to assure the users with fast Internet connection. The Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the Philippine Army and PLDT is under way for the free Internet connectivity for the project to be fully completed wherein all installed CCTV cameras in LNMB are digital IP cameras.

         Relatives and friends who are not present during the wake will have live access to the necrological activities of their beloved departed by watching them through their smart phones and computers using the IMOU app which could be downloaded online for free. After downloading the app and registering their E-mail accounts, they will only notify the personnel from GSU to allow them to access and view the events using their IMOU account. There are seven (7) 65” Samsung LED TV installed in the mortuaries (three at the officers’ mortuaries and four at the enlisted personnel’s mortuaries). Also during the wake, upon family request, Public Address System (PAS) will be provided to have a complete Audio-Visual System (AVS) for Holy Mass and necrological activities.

            The construction of these world-class comfort rooms will surely benefit the guests, visitors and other stakeholders of the LNMB whom for a very long time were deprived of better and comfortable accommodations.
