Honeywell to upgrade in-flight entertainment
Washington, August 22, 2013
Honeywell has signed a partnership agreement with airline content management company IFP and its sister company, in-flight software development expert DTI, to launch a new in-flight entertainment upgrade for its Ovation Select cabin management system (CMS).
The HD audio-video on demand (AVOD) upgrade will enable passengers to enjoy continually updated library of in-theatre, new release and classic films besides top films from major motion picture studios and distributors worldwide, said a statement.
IFM and DTI are wholly owned by Advanced Inflight Alliance (AIA), which is a subsidiary of Global Eagle Entertainment.
The new HD AVOD option is available to business aircraft operators as an easy-to-use upgrade to the current Ovation CMS.
Business fliers will now have access to films through permanently installed individual in-cabin controls and monitors, or wirelessly via personal entertainment devices such as iPads and iPhones, said the statement.
The system is designed to be compatible with many consumer electronic devices. Set-top boxes allow passengers to bring their own content on the aircraft and stream it through the CMS’sHDMI port, it said. - TradeArabia News Service
