Partnership between Cinemo and Volkswagen to Drive the Next Stage in Personalized Infotainment

Content distribution and media consumption set to reach new heights in smart integration with latest in-car VW Touareg entertainment platform

Karlsruhe, Germany, November 27, 2018 – Cinemo, a global leader in high performance and automotive grade multimedia playback, streaming, media management, connectivity and cloud middleware, and Volkswagen AG, one of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers, today announced their first partnership to harness VW Touareg’s digital cockpit by creating a transformational experience in the way individualised digital media is disseminated in the car.

Creating a deeply engaging environment for ‘on the move’ indulgence, Cinemo and Volkswagen bring an impressive array of consumer control, energizing front and rear seat screens for stunning picture and sound quality. Distribution of multimedia content for local playback and synchronized streaming, along with BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), allow a mobile user to control the head unit or Rear Seat Entertainment (RSE) directly from the device itself.

Strived to create a unified, fully-integrated, highly personalized and advanced vehicle experience, Cinemo and Volkswagen provide a much smarter and safer way of interacting with the cockpit using personal devices such as smartphones and tablets thanks to the Volkswagen Media Control App available for both iOS and Android.

Designed to allow near instantaneous correlation to all media available in the car regardless of the location or storage device, Cinemo’s Distributed Playback™ and Distributed Media Management™ have a flexible expanse between local and connected database and playback that revolutionize the way digital media can be distributed and used in the car.

“We are delighted to work together on the new ground-breaking VW Touareg” said Elif Ede, VP Sales of Cinemo. “With a future-proof framework, Cinemo is propelling innovation whilst addressing the composite issues in automotive derived from today’s media-centric culture”.
