Latest Trends in In-Flight Entertainment
An Avionics Magazine Webinar

Wednesday, December 2, 2009
Noon to 1 p.m. (EST)

$297 per site location.

In-flight entertainment (IFE) systems, like entertainment systems on the ground, are evolving at a rapid pace. Once considered a special perk of flying, IFE is an expected amenity for business and leisure passengers alike. Passengers now can from an in-flight database of movies, video games, music and even shop from their seats from touch-screen, high-definition displays.

But the traditional definition of IFE is changing to accommodate the connectivity demands of personal electronic devices. Just three years after the failure of Connexion by Boeing, airlines are dipping their toes into the connectivity pool with the addition of Web and e-mail services. Airlines in Asia and Europe allow in-flight cell phone use, but regulatory and social hurdles have prevented that in the United States.

Among discussion points:

  • What are the latest developments in in-flight entertainment equipment?
  • How are carriers and avionics manufacturers responding?
  • What are the power, weight and wiring demands on the aircraft?
  • What are the costs of installing, operating and maintaining IFE systems?
  • Are airlines forever changing from content to connectivity providers?
  • What is the status of in-flight cell phone use?

For the answers to these and other questions, and for insight into the latest developments in IFE, we’ve assembled representatives of leading-edge companies for this live, online discussion. This Avionics Magazine Webinar will provide invaluable information to operators considering, selecting or planning an IFE system. And the Webinar is interactive: registrants can pose questions to the speakers for discussion in real time.

Hear from these experts:

Aircell, Senior Vice President, Airline Solutions
Neil James
Panasonic Avionics, Executive Director, Corporate Sales and Product Management

What equipment do I need?

For the audio connection:

  • A computer with RealPlayer or Windows Media Player installed. When you log into the Virtual Seminar, your computer will be taken through a brief configuration check and will let you know if you're missing any software.
  • If you do not have RealPlayer or Windows, a touch-tone telephone will work also. It works best to use a speakerphone so that others can listen too.

  • PC: 166Mhz Pentium-based PC or better
  • Operating system: Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, XP
  • Browser: For optimal viewing experience, we recommend using Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher. However, any version of IE 4.0 or higher will work. For Netscape, only versions 4.x are supported at this time.
