AIX 2014: Forget the owl, DTI was the WISE one at AIX

Global Eagle subsidiary DTI had the clever idea of introducing Wireless Inflight Services and Entertainment (WISE) at Aircraft Interiors, which is a system that works with or without connectivity and allows passengers to stream a variety of content on their devices during flight.MD Alexis Steinman says, “We are expecting the narrowbody market to take a great deal of interest in it. It is line fit certified, and can be integrated to work with all Airbus types. You can add on connectivity with secure access panels.”The system supports all major operating systems and browsers, and should work with most popular devices on the market today. Global Eagle has also created a customisable Graphical User Interface that can be branded to an airline’s choosing. The entertainment behemoth also has studio permission to stream the latest Hollywood movies directly to passenger devices. Should airlines wish to monetise the product, it is designed to work on time or on pay per view basis.WISE is hardware agnostic and works with systems provided by partner OEMs in the CMS space: OnAir, Honeywell, Rockwell Collins and KID-Systeme. It should be flying with two customers later this year. Steinman anticipates strong markets in Asia, Russia and the Middle East for the product.WISE also offers a large variety of content available for wireless IFE, supplying airlines with an extensive catalogue of popular movies and TV shows approved for streaming by major Hollywood studios, as well as games, digital publications and music. The system also supports pay-per-access and pay-per-view providing airlines with ancillary revenue opportunities even in a non-connected environment.Liz Moscrop, Inflight/Inflight-Online.comHamburg
