VuLiv Player partners Shuttl to launch in-bus entertainment service VuScreen
MUMBAI: VuLiv Player, an offline and online media entertainment platform, has partnered bus aggregating platform Shuttl to launch their new In-Ride mobile entertainment streaming platform VuScreen.
Built on the proprietary video multi-cast technology (VuShare), VuScreen is a Smartphone based entertainment platform that allows passengers to stream 400 hours of video entertainment on-the-move with 100 Mbps data speeds even in network dark areas.
In the first phase, VuScreen service trials were deployed in Shuttl buses operating on selected Delhi-Gurugram-Ghaziabad routes and after receiving a good response & demand from the Shuttl commuters and the Shuttl drivers, the service will now be deployed across the entire fleet of Shuttl Buses.
For years, cab aggregators shared mobility transport providers, and long-haul transport facilities have been trying to implement in-ride entertainment technologies into their vehicles, which would allow users to watch movies & videos while stuck in traffic. But this always came to them with additional hardware cost of either a power dependent WiFi box or expensive tablets loaded with videos which coupled with Network buffering issues were unable to provide a seamless experience.
What differentiates VuScreen is that you no longer have TV screens or tablets in front of your seat. Instead, it lets you stream short format videos, regional content, News, famous TV shorts, and music to suit every mood and taste, directly to your personal screen. Passengers can choose what to watch whether it’s the latest originals from Viu, ALT Balaji, Comedy Munch, SpotBoye Gossips or the Latest Business News on-the-go.
VuLiv Player founder and CEO Manoj Gupta said, “Streaming on your own smartphone is now increasingly popular with affordable data plans but on the move video experience is still a challenge while navigating through network dark spots, security zones, therefore, creating several interruptions in a digital experience. This led the team to push the boundaries of smartphone technology and create a disruption with our on-the-go entertainment platform VuScreen, where a customer can enjoy even an HD video experience without any interruptions created due to the cellular network. Creating the new definition for In-Ride entertainment with VuScreen, we are extremely delighted to partner with Shuttl and are confident, that this initiative will appeal to all our guests, especially the millennials who are always looking for uninterrupted entertainment on the move.”
Shuttl co-founder Deepanshu Malviya said, “Nearly 55% of commuters face buffering issues while viewing content on their smartphones. To ease this pain, Shuttl has partnered with OTT service provider VuLiv, to provide uninterrupted seamless video streaming during the commute. This service will deliver curated content that is entertaining, informative and personalised. The VuLiv pilot is in line with our vision to take away the pain of commute and reclaim that time. We eagerly await to see the response of our commuters.”
Currently simplifying entertainment in digital life of a customer and bringing a new dimension of entertainment quotient to millions of customers, VuLiv player is in talks with several national transportation service providers and is confident to onboard 1 Million vehicles with VuScreen solution within next one year.
