Bombardier has selected Lufthansa Technik’s nice HD cabin management and in-flight entertainment system for its upgraded Challenger 350, thus adding audio and video on-demand distribution to personal devices.
Lufthansa Technik said that its nice HD system has a flexible, open IP architecture, based on a wired and wireless broadband Ethernet network. The bottom line in the Challenger 350 will be that each passenger can watch individually chosen movies on an Apple, Android or Windows 8 device and also push content from the device to an embedded display.
Another nice HD feature is telephony integration at each seat, with call alert. A moving map is available both in 3-D and 2-D (the latter version is interactive). Lufthansa Technik said that nice HD offers “an embedded digital rights management system framework for studio-licensed content, as required by major Hollywood studios.”
Lufthansa Technik is here offering demonstrations of the nice HD system at Booth 1031.
