ALTO Aviation has announced the launch of a new line of in-flight entertainment (IFE) interface keypads which will offer flexible switches enhancing the passenger experience.
Under the umbrella name of ALTO Acapella the series of keypads are specifically designed for smaller aircraft cabins with no IFE, for ease of retrofitting Legacy IFE systems, and are independent of any currently installed CMS/cabin control systems. The series includes headphone keypads, VIP keypads, Baker DECU replacement keypads and tethered keypads and all require no interior modifications to install.
“The ALTO keypads offer our customers with off the shelf solutions that provide the controls for headphone and entertainment selection,” said Kevin Hayes, VP of sales and marketing. “Where other vendors require a custom production per order, our solutions are predefined and in stock for quick delivery."
"Our ability to meet expedited deliveries would be impeded by a typical 6-8 week production lead time, so we took matters into our own hands and now provide customers a turn-key solution," continued Hayes. "Now our selection has grown to include other keypad variants beyond our initial release. We are so excited to add these keypads to our product offering.”
