Airvod & TriaGnoSys Announce Dynamic Partnership To Enable Seatcentric Cabin Networks


Aircraft Interiors, Hamburg, Germany | March 29, 2012– Airvod Entertainment and TriaGnoSys have today launched an exciting partnership to provide aspects of the wireless distribution of Inflight Entertainment (IFE) content to seat-back screens and passengers’ own smartphones, tablets and laptops, as well as inflight connectivity for live updates.

Airvod’s SEATCENTRIC® solution provides each passenger with self-contained entertainment and communications centre at each seat. TriaGnoSys’ AeroBTS+ will collaborate on aspects of the airborne network to enable the wireless distribution of content, and inflight connectivity that will be incorporated into SEATCENTRIC® system. This dynamic collaboration means airlines will be able to provide updates during flights.

Speaking about the new partnership, CEO of Airvod Entertainment, Terry Bonar said, “We are delighted to announce this partnership with TriaGnoSys.

“TriaGnoSys offers Airvod a new dimension in terms of capability and progression of our operations in this area and we are very excited about exploring all avenues in this relationship. It is especially important for us as it ensure that Airvod growing customer base can be guaranteed improved connectivity services and have a future proofed system.

“Airvod continues to expand and this deal will ensure we can increase our investment in R&D and expand the company’s global reach,” said Bonar.

Axel Jahn, Managing Director of TriaGnoSys, said: “By working together, TriaGnoSys and Airvod are making IFE simpler for airlines in two key ways. Uploading of content is much more efficient, which saves time. And there are considerable weight savings – wireless is the future. By eliminating cabling and complex networks we reduce the weight of a twin aisle aircraft by over 1 Tonne.

“Passengers also benefit because they have the choice of using the seat-back screen or their own devices, as well as live content updates. And because we are using the latest Wi-Fi technology – 802.11n – performance is the same as a wired system.”
