MAXICASTER is pleased to announce the successful deployment of its next generation mobile portal across the Fjord Line fleet. It is redefining the passenger journey by extending video services to personal devices.
The mobile video service is seamlessly integrated into Fjord Line’s dynamic passenger mobile portal allowing passengers to watch live TV and the latest movies anywhere on board. To ensure passengers never miss their favourite shows, Catch-up TV is enabled allowing passengers to watch previously aired live TV via the interactive Electronic Program Guide (EPG).
The portal is designed to work across any device type ensuring a premium viewing experience regardless on any passenger device. To further enhance the service, MAXICASTER provides a premium Video on Demand catalogue curated to the FjordLines customer demographic.
The service extends the long-term partnership between the two companies, where MAXICASTER is the exclusive technology and video content provider for onboard passenger and crew services across Fjord Line vessels.
Roald Rossnes, Chief Digital Officer at Fjord Line commented “We are extremely proud to be working with MAXICASTER to create this innovative and state of the art solution for our customers. The mobile video service is fully integrated with our customer portals and makes up an important module in our strategy to give the guests well produced services and entertainment throughout the journey.”
Andrew Brown, COO of MAXICASTER commented “Fjord Line and MAXICASTER share a sense of innovation which is common in the Nordic region. By extending the service options to passengers’ own devices Fjord Line highlight their understanding of the changing passenger expectations in the market and commitment to delivering the best possible experience anywhere on board.”
