Aiming to capitalise on what it believes is the accelerating convergence between the automotive and media industries, ACCESS has acquired white label, turnkey smart TV and OTT ecosystems firm NetRange.

ACCESS NetRange 16April2019ACCESS believes that in-car connectivity is now enabling new use cases inside vehicles, while the breadth of connected entertainment solutions available to consumers has reached an all-time high, spanning video, video games and more. Building on this momentum, the acquisition of NetRange is claimed by ACCESS as guaranteeing that customers will be able to deploy ‘best-in-class’ solutions spanning the entire connected entertainment portfolio inside the home, on the go and in connected vehicles.

Among the mobile and network software technologies provider’s portfolio is a white-label content streaming service infotainment services platform, Twine for Car, that enables OEMs to brand and personalise each journey. NetRange’s products and services includes the OS.CAR connected car infotainment platform.

“The combination of ACCESS and NetRange solutions will enable automotive manufacturers to offer varied in-car infotainment solutions that adjust to the needs of drivers and passengers, while supporting new business models for traditional car companies and for the growing electric, hybrid and autonomous driving industry. Through this acquisition, ACCESS shows once again its ability to invest in creative technologies that respond to a strong future market need,” said ACCESS Europe CEO Neale Foster.

“From its inception in the early days of smart TVs, NetRange has always prided itself on being a pioneer. This vision is echoed by ACCESS’ journey. We are looking forward to be part of the team to design solutions that meet consumer demand today and tomorrow,” added NetRange founder Jan Wendt.
