10 September 2018, London, UK: Leading Hollywood Studios plus major UK & US film distributors including Swank Motion Pictures Inc and Filmbankmedia have approved GoMedia’s new offline Transport Digital Rights Management (DRM) solution, enabling rail and coach passengers to stream movies and TV shows through a web browser, without having to download an App.
GoMedia’s DRM solution is designed specifically for the Transport industry as it provides the ability to offer Premium content to passengers even in periods of no connectivity to the vehicle. This is
critical for Transport Operators whos vehicles travel through tunnels, cuttings and the countryside, when connectivity is a potential issue.
Matt Seaman, Chief Executive Officer, GoMedia, says: “Our technical experts have been working closely with Google and Apple to develop a DRM solution optimised for the transport industry,
showcasing GoMedia as a leading innovator in our sector and strengthening our partnerships with the world’s leading production Studios.”
“The new Transport DRM is a world first and gives us and our customers more control and greater security when it comes to onboard content, as well as improving accessibility for passengers. Our customers will benefit from a more expansive range of content from the world’s largest Studios, whilst passengers will be able to access Premium content seamlessly through their browsers on mobile, tablet, Mac and laptop enabling playback and access to the content even when vehicles have no connectivity.”
“DRM is about securing content, but fundamentally it is about liberating content to maximise its accessibility in a secure environment for our content partners and customers.”
“The Transport DRM solution is being rolled out across GoMedia’s portfolio of European customers including First Group, Eurostar, Virgin Trains, National Express Coaches and Abellio and it also features on GoMedia’s first launch in the US on Greyhound Lines Inc. in July 2018.”
