Mezzo has launched a new range of cases commissioned and designed specifically to fit all models of Samsung Galaxy tablets with the aim to enhance the passenger experience in-flight.
As a Gold Partner member of the Samsung Enterprise Alliance Program (SEAP), Mezzo has worked closely with Samsung to develop the range of cases. The Samsung Enterprise Research Institute (SERI) in the UK provided collaborative assistance in the initial development stages of the Mezzo solution. The patent-pending cases are manufactured exclusively for Mezzo by Iota Sigma, a company from Newport, Wales, and have been given the name “Corlan” which is the welsh word for “fold”.
“Samsung tablets are ideal for deployment with passengers, either unconnected or in Wi-Fi networked areas, and when combined with the new Mezzo Corlan case, those passengers get an even better entertainment, shopping, advertising or interactive experience,” commented Dave Sampson, Mezzo’s CEO.
The external Corlan case acts as a screen cover to protect against scratching during transport and has been approved by Hollywood studios’ security teams for its ability to withstand abuse, and in particular hacking or interference with the software and content.
With three SD cards mounted in a caddy and integrated into the case, the limited memory capacity issue that faces consumer off the shelf tablets is negated. The SD memory cards can be removed for upgrading, changing the content or for downloading captured data.
The cases have an integral stand offering users a variable viewing angle and a rigid position, which is suitable for typing and data entry or game play.
