Mezzoglobal, a London-based specialist in portable services and ancillary revenue, has developed a customisation called Samsung KNOX for the Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 to improve passenger’s experiences of in-flight entertainment (IFE).
With a large 12.2 inch high resolution display, Mezzoglobal suggests the Galaxy Tab Pro offers a better viewing experience than smaller tablets, with Samsung KNOX allowing television, films and other entertainment offerings to be watched through a secure mobile platform.
“Security is critical for business deployment of mobile devices. Mezzoglobal started working with Samsung nearly three years ago and now we are using KNOX in apps when data needs the highest security,” explained Dave Sampson, Mezzoglobal’s CEO. “Mezzoglobal’s app protects the latest Hollywood movies for showing on mobile devices used on commercial airlines. KNOX is a key pillar of our secure platform preventing unauthorised access and media piracy.”
Carl L. Nerup, VP of global sales for KNOX at Samsung Electronics, stated, “As a KNOX customisation partner, we have worked with Mezzoglobal to develop a number of their applications and mobile solutions for the travel industry. With the addition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro to its offerings, we know Mezzoglobal is well equipped to create the ultimate passenger experience, to deliver effective cabin crew solutions and to ultimately generate increased revenue and profit for our joint customers in the travel industry.”
Mezzoglobal has suggested that the Galaxy Tab Pro is best suited to business and first class passengers, confirming its already in use on one airline, but the company also says that the Galaxy Tab Pro with Samsung KNOX can be used by cabin crew for administration purposes.
