KNUTSFORD, England, July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
IFE Services, one of the world's leading in-flight entertainment (IFE) providers, announced today that it was Iberia's technical consultant for its Panasonic eX2 system.
IFE Services supported the Iberia team on system design, capacity, functionality, applications configuration and customisation for its Panasonic eX2 system with QT GUI.
Business Plus passengers can now enjoy new and intuitive entertainment options using 15.5" screens similar to those seen on tablet computers, plus 4.2" touch screen remotes with a virtual keyboard with which passengers can make telephone calls, send text messages and easily access the available content.
Major enhancements in economy have been introduced too with overhead screens being replaced with a highly advanced in-flight entertainment system for every passenger that includes individual 9" touch screens through which a wide selection of IFE content can be enjoyed. Every seat has a connection port for Apple devices and a USB port, whilst universal power sockets are also available.
The new eX2 system was successfully launched across Iberia's fleet of A330 aircraft in February this year following a two year collaboration with IFE Services. By mid 2015 a total of 8 new A330s will join the fleet and 17 A340s will be retrofitted with the new IFE system and interiors.
Technical consultancy for this project was led by IFE Services' Spanish team with support from the company's technical teams in the USA and UK.
IFE Services has been Iberia's IFE content service provider for two decades. As well as supplying Spain's leading airline with movies, TV shows and audio, IFE Services meets all of its original production requirements.
"We selected IFE Services for its expertise of the Panasonic eX2 system," said Iberia's Product Design Manager. "We knew they would be flexible enough to manage this project against very tight timescales and they significantly helped us to successfully implement this demanding project in time."
