Our Products:

Digital Taxi Top:

The ‘iTaxitop‘ is the world’s first industrial grade LCD taxitop technology which enables media, news and information to be broadcast to the right people, at the right place and time – all from the roof of a taxi. An evolution to the traditional taxitop ‘light boxes’ seen in the United States, the iTaxitop introduces relevancy, accountability and immediacy to taxi advertising. With the ability to schedule ads remotely and deploy to each unit via wireless connectivity, the iTaxitop turns each taxi into the world’s most advanced out-of-home communications tool – turning each street (at any time of the day) into a new and exciting potential point of communication with the public. Powerful stuff!

 

In-Cab WiFi

CabWifi‘ turns each vehicle into a high speed wifi hotspot for passengers to use whilst travelling in the back of the cab. The Eyetease system is the world’s first industrial grade mobile public wifi device for taxis, with a unique ads-for-access user experience. The technology provides media owners with a new revenue stream through the ability to monetize the user experience. Passengers using CabWifi are immersed in a (client defined) branded user experience that includes a pre-roll advert, one time registration page and landing page. For clients, the system provides an all-in-one solution to monetize a public wifi hotspot that is compliant with EU / Home Office / Ofcom directives and guidelines.
