DTS AutoStage™ Video Service, Powered by TiVo™ to Launch in 2023 

Earlier this year, Xperi announced a ground-breaking partnership with the BMW Group to bring the video content consumers know and love from the living room to the car.  

DTS AutoStage is the only global entertainment platform for the connected car that seamlessly combines linear and on-demand content in a unified, user-centric experience. The platform gives automotive OEMs more control over their brands while giving consumers access to a personalized, immersive entertainment experience, including radio, music, podcasts, TV shows, movies, games and more. 

Through this implementation of the video service, customers can access an ever-expanding range of video content. This includes a vast collection of linear and on-demand streaming services, as well as country-specific channels that feature news, movies and media libraries. Customers will be able to cut through the clutter of streaming and linear content options with simplified, universal discovery. This implementation integrates the DTS AutoStage video service, powered by TiVo into the car to deliver immersive in-car entertainment experiences. 

Robust in-vehicle entertainment choices are important to consumers as they increasingly view their vehicle as a third space — a place outside of work and the house, a place to relax, enjoy hobbies and escape the stresses of work. Being able to use their vehicle as a third space is the top reason drivers say their personal vehicle is more important to them today than ever before.[1] 

“Consumers are evolving to view their car as a meaningful and enjoyable third space, rather than as a simple transportation device. It’s from the privacy and safety of their vehicle where they increasingly choose to relax, communicate or be productive,” said Jeff Jury, senior vice president and general manager of connected car. “The automotive industry’s response to add connectivity and larger screens marks a new era for entertainment and in-car experiences, which favors companies such as Xperi and includes the adoption of seamless video streaming, movies, games and more.” 

Based on decades of experience growing profitable consumer electronics and entertainment ecosystems, the DTS AutoStage video service, Powered by TiVo is designed to delight consumers and help them find, watch and enjoy the entertainment they love, maximizing the in-car entertainment experience.
