A state-of-the-art multimedia system can transform every car ride, be it by providing the right soundtrack for a daily commute or through video content to keep passengers entertained during a long road trip. The TomTom Digital Cockpit comes equipped with in-vehicle entertainment functionality that is easy to integrate and can engage passengers for hours on end, thanks to Cinemo.
The Cinemo CARS Online Video enables Video on demand (VOD) playback on Android Automotive OS, independent of the Play Store. It allows users to access premium content as and when they want without a traditional video entertainment device. Using one central hub, they can easily find and view leading subscription VOD, transactional VOD, advertising-based VOD and linear TV services. TomTom Digital Cockpit users will also be spoiled for choice with the option to pick from a global database as well as personalized content recommendations.
Content can be accessed intelligently from pre-configured tiles. The services displayed on these tiles can be chosen by every TomTom Digital Cockpit customer, either individually or with pre-configuration provided by Cinemo.
This functionality supports playback of a wide variety of content, be it Digital Rights Management (DRM)-protected content (e.g. Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video) or non-protected content, such as YouTube videos.
Cinemo’s award-winning Distributed Playback technology also allows mirrored playback of the same video on multiple screens in a perfectly synchronized way, ensuring that passengers have an immersive in-car experience regardless of where they’re seated.
By bringing users’ favorite digital content into the car, Cinemo and TomTom allow passengers to set the vibe of their ride and turn the car into an on-the-go party.
