3SS, 4screen and TomTom

Connecting drivers and passengers to a richer in-car experience

From delivering the latest in entertainment and video streaming to connecting with businesses in real time, 3SS, 4screen and TomTom open up new benefits for the connected car.

3SS (3 Screen Solutions) has been delivering innovative software and services to the digital entertainment and video streaming industry since 2009. The company is known for providing top-tier video experiences across all screens, with its award-winning 3Ready product platform. As our digital worlds become more and more connected in everyday life, 3SS creates the seamless experience viewers expect.

4screen is a digital platform company. It created the world's first platform that connects drivers seamlessly with their surroundings, providing real-time access to a wide range of services and recommendations. Their driver interaction platform allows OEMs to communicate with drivers directly through the vehicle's screen, providing drivers with frictionless access to the mobility ecosystem with more relevant content and value-added services.

Accelerating the connected car

As digital screens replace mechanical dials, 3SS and 4screen offer innovative ways to enhance the driving experience for both drivers and passengers. Together with TomTom, the companies are unlocking new opportunities for the automotive industry to further transform and capitalize on the connected car.

The TomTom Digital Cockpit is the only open, modular in-vehicle infotainment platform. It provides the perfect platform to unite 3SS and 4screen services with drivers. By working together, the companies offer one integrated platform for premium video services and contextual content.

Unlocking the power of screens and digital cockpits

3SS provides globally and locally available third-party premium entertainment content, which OEMs can combine with proprietary content. This is made possible by software solutions such as the world-first YouTube API integrator, enabling 3SS to bring an engaging TV-like experience into the TomTom Digital Cockpit. 4screen brings in a wide partner network of local shops and global brands to connect with drivers along their journey or a stopover. The services work in sync to simplify integration, helping OEMs offer more benefits to drivers while also capitalizing on new revenue streams.

To give you an example: Say you’re in a car with the TomTom Digital Cockpit. You’re watching a video in the 3SS video player and, when you pause it, you’re shown a local recommendation to a business that interests you in that specific moment. As it is close by and you have the time, you can then easily navigate to the destination. This is a big first step in the future of entertainment and business in the connected car.

As the significance of in-car entertainment grows in influencing car-buyers' decisions, carmakers face the opportunity for new revenue streams – if the solution provides added value to the customer. The key to success lies in addressing two critical challenges: delivering and consistently updating an exceptional and relevant User Experience while ensuring a swift time to market for deployment. Our seamless pre-integration of 3Ready into the TomTom Digital Cockpit perfectly addresses both challenges, providing car manufacturers with an ideal solution to enhance value and meet market demands effectively.
