digEcor is delighted to announce that once again further to EuroAtlantic’s purchase of the GLIDE embedded Inflight Entertainment (IFE) system, a second European Airline has selected the GLIDE solution to enhance the Inflight Entertainment experience for their passengers.
Corendon Airlines is a leisure based airline headquartered in Antalya, Turkey. Their current fleet composes 11 Boeing 737-800 aircraft and 3 more 737-800 operated by Corendon Dutch Airlines. They have placed a firm order with digEcor to upgrade their current legacy Tape Based IFE system to digital with the GLIDE Tape Replacement Solution for 6 Boeing 737-800 aircraft with a possibility of a further order taking the potential purchase to 12 aircraft.
The solution will provide Corendon with the headend device of the GLIDE embedded IFE system, it’s Cabin Management Terminal (CMT), a single touchscreen LRU which replaces the entire Video Control Centre (VCC), the Pre Recorded Announcement System (PRAM), Public Address (PA), Boarding Music function (BDM) and adds a Moving Map. With no changes to wiring or monitors the system essentially is installed as a plug and play solution.
“The benefits of this solution for Corendon Airlines are many”, comments Paul Thorpe, VP Global Sales at digEcor. “The airline is purchasing a simplified installation that solves existing obsolescence issues and provides their airline’s passengers many of the features of a typical overhead IFE system in one unit with broader content choice, digital sound and enhances viewing quality. We are delighted to welcome Corendon into the digEcor family.”
For cabin crew the interface is simple and easy to use, can be scripted by city pairs is customizable to airline branding and incorporates all PRAM, BDM, IFE and Cabin Lighting functions if the airline chooses to extend the functionality. The CMT also has the option to allow external video sources to be connected as well, enabling close to real time screening for unmissable sports events or sponsorship and partner opportunities.
