Revolutionising Eurostar’s passenger experience
Eurostar, the high-speed rail operator connecting the UK with mainland Europe, recently launched a new fleet of state-of-the-art e320 trains.
With interiors designed by world-renowned Italian design-house, Pininfarina, the sleek new trains have a number of innovative features designed to transform the passenger experience. GoMedia helped Eurostar develop one of those innovative features - an interactive on-board entertainment solution.
Using our unrivalled digital rights management system, we put together an entertainment package featuring films, TV shows, box sets, cartoons, games, digital newspapers and magazines, available in multiple languages. The cutting-edge on board entertainment system also integrated google maps, allowing passengers to track their journey live whilst they travel at high-speed between London and Paris.
We used Eurostar’s existing Wi-Fi and IT infrastructure to deliver the platform through content hosted on-board. This means passengers can stream over the trains’ Wi-Fi network to their personal device and we can make the system available through the existing Eurostar app.
“GoMedia technology is helping us to enhance the on board experience for Eurostar passengers, by giving them access to a wide range of entertainment through their own personal device. The platform is integrated into our existing app, making it readily available and accessible for all our customers from the moment they step on board.”
