)-- e-Systems delivers a new class of In-Flight Entertainment and Cabin Management System. Co-developer InspecTech installed the iCabin Suite on the Hawkerbeechraft 400XPR and showcased at NBAA static display in Las Vegas. The iCabin is a full-featured stand-alone Cabin Management and In-Flight Entertainment Wireless System that does not required Internet. Having the smallest footprint of any IFE/CMS system available with a basic system weight of less than 10 pounds.
The iCabin uses iPads as the primary control center and video screen and it does it all wirelessly. All Entertainment and Cabin Management data is streamed wirelessly. This eliminates many components, saves substantial weight, space, and significantly reduces potential failures and maintenance. Operators no longer have to store and manage physical media such as DVD’s or CD’s as all of the entertainment media is stored in the digital library on the server. All media being streamed is in compliance with all Digital Rights Management requirements.
The iCabin is fully scalable. The In-Flight Entertainment Apps JetFlix and JetTunes can be installed as a stand-alone system. The CMS Apps can be integrated at the same time or installed at a later date.
Optional components for the iCabin include a new design iPortUSB™. This feature has two usb ports at each seat. One port charges the iPad, the other port can charge any cell phone with a standard usb connector. A clean contemporary articulating arm is available to hold the ipad, which is a removable mount in armrest. This new design offers optimum viewing angle for watching movies and interaction with the touch screen without any interference.
Features of iCabin:
JetFlix™: 400 movies stored in the digital library. Every movie is streamed wirelessly to each passenger. Every passenger can watch a different movie.
JetTunes™: Listen to up to 15,000 songs. Each passenger can listen to different songs from the digital library. All music is streamed to iDevices.
