ACCESS Europe GmbH and NetRange, both consolidated subsidiaries of ACCESS, have worked together to launch an app store for the automotive industry that is now part of the ACCESS Twine™ for Car (Twine4Car) In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) system. ACCESS leveraged the content expertise and relationships from NetRange, a global provider of white-labeled turnkey Smart TV and Over-the-Top (OTT) app stores in over 100 countries, to develop an app store approach to the automotive industry. The app store provides Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) with a single source of video and audio streaming content with car-centric mobility services. With that, ACCESS aims to transform ACCESS Twine4Car into a complete in-car entertainment solution for next-generation vehicles. The App Store applications include live TV, video and audio streaming services, and in-car gaming. Twine4Car also supports Digital Rights Management (DRM) within the vehicle’s built-in devices and brought-in devices for secure playback. The app store is already commercially available and currently in trials with vehicle OEMs and Tier 1s.
