Thanks to new technology from Bosch, a coach journey can also become a cinematic experience, making time simply fly by. The Coach MediaRouter, with its integrated Wi-Fi internet access point, gives passengers a stable internet connection and access to an extensive choice of streaming media throughout their journey. “With the Bosch Coach MediaRouter, we want to set a market standard,” says Manfred Baden, President of the Bosch Car Multimedia division. The second highlight from Bosch is a new wireless microphone. Tour guides will appreciate the complete freedom of movement and interference-free output afforded by the Coach WirelessMicrophone System. Bosch is presenting both highlights at Busworld Kortrijk 2015 in Belgium, from October 16 to 21, 2015.

Movies, series, and more, just like in-flight entertainment
The Coach MediaRouter provides a fast, high-performance internet connection in coaches, allowing up to 50 people to connect to the device. What makes the Bosch MediaRouter unique is that passengers can stream media to their mobile devices from a locally stored library – which also has the benefit of reducing the load on the internet connection. Alongside access to streaming content, media sharing among passengers is possible as well. Videos, photos, and music can be transferred to the router via a USB flash drive. The router then makes the content available to the passengers through streaming. Thanks to the two slots for LTE-enabled SIM cards, local cellular networks can be used on journeys into neighboring countries.

Wireless solution for tour commentary from anywhere in the coach
Besides its solution for reliable in-coach internet access, Bosch is also presenting the Coach WirelessMicrophone System, a wireless microphone with high immunity to interference that affords great freedom of movement. “When developing the Coach WirelessMicrophone System, we focused on practical value,” says Manfred Baden. The tour guide can move freely around the coach and provide interference-free commentary even from the last row or top deck. Furthermore, thanks to the microphone’s 12-hour battery life, the tour guide can be confident it will be ready for use whenever needed. Practical charging stations for mounting on the dashboard or wall of the coach are optionally available too.

The Coach WirelessMicrophone System is now available on the market for dealerships and coach manufacturers, and the Coach MediaRouter has been available since the spring of 2015. Thanks to its compact size, installing the Bosch MediaRouter in any coach is very straightforward. Coach manufacturers are already starting to offer it as a factory-fitted option. So in future, both of these products may help make travelling even more fun.
