The long drive back home, bored in endless traffic battles, takes a toll on our mental preparedness before we even start with our daily workplace routine. Well, no more! Bringing in-flight entertainment like experience into customerâ€™s daily commute, VuLiv Player, the offline and online media entertainment platform, in partnership with Shuttl, has announced the launch of its new, in-ride mobile entertainment streaming platform, VuScreenTM.
Built on the proprietary video multi-cast technology (VuShareTM), VuScreenTM 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, VuScreenTM service trials were deployed in Shuttl buses operating on selected Delhi-Gurugram-Ghaziabad routes. After a huge response and demand from the commuters and drivers, the service will now be deployed across 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 and 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 VuScreenTM is that you no longer have TV screens or tablets in front of your seat. Instead, it lets you stream an exciting range of 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 itâ€™s the latest originals from Viu, ALT Balaji, Comedy Munch, SpotBoye Gossips or the latest business news on-the-go.
Manoj Gupta, Founder & CEO, VuLiv Player, said, â€śStreaming 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 and security zones, therefore creating 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 VuScreenTM, where a customer can enjoy even a HD video experience without any interruptions created due to cellular network. Creating the new definition for in-ride entertainment with VuScreenTM, 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.â€ť
Customers need to follow two simple steps to enjoy VuScreenTM.
Step 1: Download VuScreenTM mobile app from Google Play or Apple Store
Step 2: Just Open VuScreenTM App and Enjoy Unlimited Entertainment
Deepanshu Malviya, Co-Founder Shuttl, said, â€śNearly 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.â€ť
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 on-board one million vehicles with VuScreenTM solution within next one year.
