Even More Stuff We Liked!


To keep the WAEA flame alive we again cover people, products, and services you may have missed, we present another walk down the show floor.

While Fred Faulk (eDigital Prez) smile is almost as big as the latest 8” eVU portable entertainment player. Now the eDigital folks are offering Early Window content as well as 20+ hours of battery life, the latest eVU offers a customizable GUI and a new touchscreen option. With 160 GB of hard disk storage one could think of the new eVU as a long haul entertainment solution…it looks like the plane will run out of gas before the battery does. We bet the next generation will do away with the buttons! www.edigital.com

Got Power? Our next solution is from George Smallhorn and the folks at Inflight Canada who saw the need for inseat power in retrofit applications but re-thought the certification solution and avoided adding boxes to the seat. What did he do? Simple, build a clamshell box to hold the Astronics power module, connect it to power, and affix the unit under the seat and to the existing seat rail via a couple of seat cleats.. Clever, huh? No doubt this concept could grow to an interesting Seat Power/IFE/Connectivity imbedded system by next WAEA www.inflightcanada.com
