Manchester, UK-based Airline Services has announced two new enhancements to its products at AIX in Hamburg this week.
The company has added audio video on demand (AVOD) to its Aerostream XP1 digital video recorder, which features a touch screen cabin control interface for the cabin crew. This delivers content across six channels of video, plus 12 audio channels. Two new products FXP 2000 and FXP 1000 also offer more control to airlines. FXP 1000 also offers the latest preloaded inflight movies. Both systems should be certified later this year with first customer deliveries slated for delivery eight months later.
There is secure FTP data transfer interface to manage encrypted content updates, which is fully approved by all US Studios and distributors, including Disney, Twentieth Century Fox, Warner Bros, Sony, Universal and Paramount for early window content.
Bryan Bodek, ASL’s CEO says, “There are around three big players out there dominating the market in AVOD/IFE. What we are offering with our solution is a cost-conscious retrofit, with an affordable way of updating out-dated technology.”
