Nomad Digital has successfully partnered with Austrian rail operator ÖBB to deliver a fleet-wide passenger WiFi upgrade and a comprehensive passenger portal with multi-media services on 51 ÖBB Railjets. Also, ÖBB will offer a world-first terrestrially-delivered live broadcast TV solution in two Railjets.
The stand-out feature amongst a host of fully-integrated enhanced passenger solutions, is Nomad and ÖBB’s world-first “live” terrestrial broadcast TV solution over IP for the rail market – an innovative partnership with Austrian broadcaster ORF, who provides the content. The launch of the on-board live broadcast TV ties in with UEFA’s Euro 2016 kick off, allowing passengers to keep in touch with the latest scores by watching the games live in two selected trains.
As part of a suite of enhanced technology solutions, Nomad is also launching its next generation 3500P platform across ÖBB’s Railjet fleet, to enable a fully upgraded connectivity service and integrated media server.
In addition, Nomad’s connectivity solution supports the launch of ÖBB’s integrated passenger portal, which delivers a full media and infotainment platform with rich content (including live TV in two trains) and a Passenger Information System (PIS) which provides passengers with fully synchronised and integrated real-time journey and service information.
