US aerospace firm Honeywell (NYSE: HON) said it has signed a partnership agreement with airline content management company IFP and its sister company in-flight software development expert DTI to launch a new HD audio-video on demand in-flight entertainment upgrade for Honeywell´s Ovation Select cabin management system.
With the upgrade, passengers can enjoy a continually updated library of in-theater, new release and classic films as well as top independent and foreign films from major motion picture studios and distributors worldwide, Honeywell said.
IFP and DTI are wholly owned by Advanced Inflight Alliance, which is a subsidiary of Global Eagle Entertainment Inc.
The new HD AVOD option is now available to business aircraft operators as an upgrade to the current Ovation CMS.
Ovation Select HD AVOD gives passengers new in-flight entertainment autonomy. With it, business fliers will have access to films through permanently installed individual in-cabin controls and monitors, or wirelessly via personal entertainment devices such as iPads (NASDAQ: AAPL) and iPhones.
