Imagik and Thompson Aerospace have joined forces to create Allure, which they claim is the lightest and most cost effective full in-flight entertainment (IFE) and infotainment offering on the market.
Using Thompson Aerospace’s 1Net private cloud technology, the Allure system features a 10.1” HD touch screen and QUATRO in-seat USB points. QUATRO can be installed as part of the IFE system or as an independent charging system for personal electronic devices (PEDs) to allow airlines greater flexibility.
“Entertainment solutions are big data solutions and with our partnership with Imagik allows us to focus on the data to provide the best value to airline customers,” said Thompson Aerospace CEO, Mark Thompson. “Our innovative 1Net Private Cloud technology enables the airline to tailor content solutions and enrich the infotainment experience similar to personal devices.”
Pablo Vadillo of Imagik stated: “With this agreement we can offer our customers almost every option they can look for in an IFE system, from movies, to e-commerce to global tracking.”
Thompson Aerospace will focus on security, data management and connectivity with its new CSUv2 server, which is the core of the 1NETv2 Airborne Local Area Network. The secure data solution is an ecosystem for managing all aircraft data while maintaining the capacity for streaming passenger content.
Thompson Aerospace is partnered with B/E Aerospace for the manufacturing of their 1Net server product line.
Allure will be showcased at AIX in Hamburg, Germany, April 14-16.
