GoMedia, Europe’s leading infotainment systems provider for rail and coach operators, is celebrating BEAM, Virgin Trains’ infotainment system supplied by GoMedia, being named Best Travel Technology Product at the Business Travel Awards.
Roger Matthews, managing director, GoMedia, says: “The Business Travel Awards recognise the most significant achievements in the industry so it’s fantastic that BEAM has been recognised. Our objective is to help our clients achieve high customer-satisfaction levels and this recognition for our technology shows that what we are delivering has a genuine impact on our clients’ businesses.”
BEAM delivers world-class entertainment straight to Virgin Trains’ passengers’ devices, via the onboard Wi-Fi, from a content server hosted on the train. Fully customised to Virgin Trains’ requirements and preferences, the entertainment package includes blockbuster films from major Hollywood studios, TV, box sets, cartoons, games, and digital magazines.
The industry-leading app was launched last year and marked the second collaboration between the GoMedia and Virgin Trains, focused on continuously improving the passenger experience.
