Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has signed a partnership agreement with airline content management company IFP and its sister company, in-flight software development outfit DTI, to launch a new HD audio-video on demand (AVOD) in-flight entertainment upgrade for Honeywell’s Ovation Select cabin management system (CMS).
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.
“This enhancement of our Ovation Select CMS continues to move passengers toward a more connected aircraft. Our new HD AVOD uniquely delivers cutting-edge wireless in-flight entertainment technology that provides them with access to the latest motion picture library available — all at the touch of an icon,” said Robert Wilson, president, Business and General Aviation, Honeywell Aerospace.
IFP and DTI are wholly owned by Advanced Inflight Alliance (AIA), which is a subsidiary of Global Eagle Entertainment Inc.
The new HD AVOD option is now available to business aircraft operators as an easy-to-use upgrade to the current Ovation CMS.
Ovation Select HD AVOD gives passengers new in-flight entertainment experience. Business fliers will now have access to films through permanently installed individual in-cabin controls and monitors, or wirelessly via personal entertainment devices such as iPads and iPhones.
Honeywell made this announcement today, July 22.
