Leading engineering services company Babcock International Group has expanded its mobile video partnership with GoMedia adding a new video-on-demand (VOD) service for passengers of the c2c train company in the UK.

babcock 15May2017C2c runs services between Fenchurch Street, in the heart of the City of London, and Basildon, Southend and Grays in the county of Essex. Passengers on c2c routes will now be able to have access to a range of films and television content streamed direct to their own tablets, laptops and phones. Transport video specialist GoMedia is using Babcock’s multi-platform distribution offering to encode, encrypt and add subtitles to the content and then distribute it directly into the GoMedia platforms. The services continue GoMedia and Babcock’s close relationship and follows hot on the heels of existing services to National Express, Eurostar and Virgin East and West Coast Trains.

“Through our partnership with Babcock we have provided passengers across a wide variety of transport routes from National Express, Eurostar and now c2c with the ability to access a cutting-edge on-board entertainment system,” said GoMedia chief operating officer Simon Dore. “We believe this will become an industry standard for passengers. With responsibility for delivering hundreds of hours of content that must work perfectly first time in multiple languages and on different devices, we have had to invest in the very best technology platform available and we’re delighted with the feedback we’ve received so far.”

Added Phil Aspden, business development director of Babcock Media Services: “We’re really pleased the successful partnership with GoMedia is going from strength to strength and to be able to build upon our existing offering. Now passengers can have the freedom to enjoy a whole host of content for free that they simply wouldn’t have been able to before. In this partnership with GoMedia passengers can now travel enjoying a wide range of quality content of their choice, when they want it.”
