Next generation of in-train entertainment, infotainment and connectivity solutions

Dynamic, connected and successful transit networks are of key importance for the development, growth and prosperity of our society. An integrated and futureproof transit system can support job creation, develop new sectors of economic growth and strengthen environmental protection. It must however, serve the needs and demands of the 21st century passenger. The next generation of in-flight entertainment, infotainment will evolve wireless connectivity, near live TV, on demand video streaming and more. Passengers expect to have access to all sorts of content wherever they are. They want to stay productive, or simply sit back and have some fun while travelling to their destinations.

Axinom CMS covers the full end-to-end media workflow with an extensible development platform for service providers interested in building the next generation of platforms and customers solutions for management and delivery of premium live and on-demand video in trains.

Axinom VIP is a video ingest and processing aimed to bring a faster content approval by content providers, speed up the content updates, significantly reduce technical challenges related to content preparation and distribution, and allow faster time to market with reduced costs.

Axinom CDS allows secure and robust content synchronisation using standardised communication protocols (4G, WiFi, Satellite connection) and mediums (SSD, USB).

Axinom DRM is built from the ground up to target multiple DRM technologies in a uniform manner, enabling customers to target a wide range of platforms (Microsoft PlayReady, Google Widevine, Apple Fairplay).

Based on Axinom´s software components (Axinom VIP, Axinom CMS, Axinom DRM, Axinom CDS), we build open digital platforms for on-board entertainment, enabling customers to offer full entertainment services to their passengers, such as streaming of premium Hollywood Studio´s movies, magazines, and music, on-board shopping, promotions and advertising. In addition, operators and OBE service providers can choose to include passenger information services into their digital platform and cover passenger surveys and crew messaging services.
