As part of a new agreement, ALTO Aviation is using Innovative Advantage’s AVDS nodes as an integral part of its latest fully integrated custom audio/video solution for business aviation.
ALTO’s integration of AVDS, a video distribution system which supports video switching to multiple monitors in either Standard Definition or High Definition modes, provides business aviation retrofit customers with a cost-efficient stand-alone in-flight entertainment (IFE) system upgrade option.The solution offers an integrated audio/video control compatible with any industry monitor provider, making it ideal for both single and multiple HD monitor upgrades.ALTO Aviation recently expanded its keypad offerings to add video selection to its list of functionality, allowing passengers to select video to any desired monitor, whether it is a local personal monitor or bulkhead monitor.Two basic keypad styles are available, proud or flush mount. These keypads interface directly with the AVDS node and ALTO amplifiers to provide sequential video and audio control to the cabin audio system and monitors.With the addition of the AVDS node and an on-board wireless Wi?Fi router, the new audio/video system can be controlled by an Apple or Android-based personal electronic device. ALTO Aviation designs each node specifically to the aircraft system requirements.“By far, the Innovative Advantage AVDS is the most comprehensive and advanced high-definition video solution in the market. Its ease of configuration and integration makes it an easy choice as our preferred method of video switching. We are thrilled to partner with Innovative Advantage to integrate our video button keypads and audio systems into one seamless package,” Kevin Hayes, VP of sales and marketing, remarked.
