Gogo's new seatback solution, Gogo Vision Touch, is to be installed by Bombardier on Delta CS100 aircraft, Gogo said. The installation is in conjunction with Gogo's 2Ku connectivity technology.

"The new system from Gogo that our Delta Flight Products team played a key role in designing will feature all free in-flight entertainment via Delta Studio, wirelessly," said Gil West, Delta's COO.

The seatback product allows for wireless streaming of in-flight entertainment content like Delta Studio to a tablet permanently mounted to the back of a seat, Gogo said.

"Delta's CS100 will be the first C Series aircraft to offer in-flight connectivity to passengers as of 2018," said Rob Dewar, VP of the C Series aircraft program for Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.

Gogo said the new product would provide a similar experience to Gogo Vision. But instead of streaming content only to a passengers' own device, the in-flight entertainment content will also be delivered to the seatback.
